Our house is a traditional « arcachonese » house, entirely refurnished 8 years ago. Although it’s a summer house it’s fully equipped and cosy, as we spend a lot of time in Arcachon.
There is a main house (70sqm) plus a separate "cabin" in the garden (independent room with its own bathroom ; 15sqm). The main house is composed of 2 large bedrooms (parents’ bedroom (1.60 bed) and a children’s bedroom with 2 bunk beds (4 children capacity), a bathroom with separate WC, a living room and open kitchen. Two terraces (north and south), as well as a small garden (south, calm, behind the house).
Our house is not a huge house, what we were looking for was mainly the location, for us the best neighbourhood in Arcachon.
