The lakes of Biscarrosse are among the biggest in France, the scintillating water level is blinding when the sun is up in the sky and from the shore the biggest lake seems endless. In the early hours of the day the morning mist gives the surface an almost fairy like appearance, the first strollers of the day will fancy themselves in a completely different world.

Natural attractions (beach, sea and forest) and amusement parks keep your children busy and happy. Europe's highest Dune is an absolute must because of the magnificent panoramic view and a boat trip in The Bay of Arcachon is absolutely recommended.

This region is famous for its kilometres long cycling tracks leading through the most beautiful places. Except for the dunes, the Landes area is very plane, the whole family can go on cycling trips. Fanatic recreational cyclists can enjoy the hilly dunes to their heart's content. Criss-cross through the woods mountain bike tracks will please the amateurs.

Standing on the beaches of Biscarrosse Plage space and infiniteness are especially overwhelming, only in Les Landes and Gironde the sandy beaches are this beautiful, large and endless.

On top of Dune the Pyla the panoramic view over the Atlantic Ocean, the Bay of Arcachon and the Landes forest make many a tourist feel giddy, it's so grand that it's hard to take in. The briny sea air is pure and refreshing and gives every face a rosy complexion. The intense smell of pine trees in Europe's biggest continuous forest has a purifying and invigorating effect. Whether you choose idle holidays or a lot of action and sports, Biscarrosse will recharge your batteries entirely.

Experience nature intensely, cycle and walk along the many kilometres of hiking trails that cross Les Landes. Swim, navigate, sail or row in Biscarrosse's lakes, swim or surf in the Atlantic Ocean or enjoy the sun, lying on the gold sandy beach. At the end of the day you come home in one of our comfortable villas and enjoy a nice home cooked dinner on the terrace, made with fresh ingredients you picked yourself on the market. If you're too languid to prepare dinner after a day full of action you can taste the local kitchen in one of the many excellent restaurants in Biscarrosse.

Ideas for day trips could be different visits; the vineyards around Bordeaux, Bordeaux and its museums, historical seaside resorts of Arcachon, Saint-Jean-de-Luz and Biarritz, the Bay of Arcachon, Dune the Pyla, Pyrenees, Lourdes (Place of pilgrimage), various castles, caves and entertainment parks for children. See under 'Surroundings' for more tips.

Holidays in Biscarrosse are attractive for all, for people of all ages, couples, families and groups of friends. Biscarrosse is an ideal holiday resort because of its very diverse offer of activities and excursions, there's something for everyone. Our villas are centrally situated, close to the different tourist attractions, but far enough to be able to enjoy the quiet. Biscarrosse in Les Landes is an attractive holiday destination for summer holidays and for holidays in low season.

Extremely poor service and experience

  • 1 of 5

My wife and I had initially planned to stay here for a month but left after just three nights as we were unhappy with the overall standard of cleanliness and maintenance of the accommodation and the comfort of the furnishings and the fact that the living room was being used as a storage space for patio and garden furniture. The property manager agreed to refund in full our portion of the payment for the unused nights, however, the full amount still has not been refunded and now our correspondence is no longer acknowledged by the property manager, even after promising to rectify the situation. Overall this has been a very negative experience and we would not recommend this property to friends or family.

Owner's Response: Dear Anonymous We would normally write "we sincerely apologize for the inconvenience" but in this case we will not. The cleanliness: Our houses get personal attention of Madam Bouhet who not only cleans them, but does so with love. After your complaint, first she and then our customer care representative visited you at the house - for an unbiased check. Together with her, you were not able to not find a single spot. There was only one spider web which appeared during the 2 days you were in the house and was immediately removed. We could not offer you to clean the house because there was nothing to clean. The furnishing: Did you check our numerous pictures available online? These are fully representative of the reality. Living room used as a storage: Indeed, there is a golf club bag which occupies 0.5 m2 out of 25m2. I think it is clearly stated on our website that the villa is located in a golf park? All our visitors so far have been grateful for the additional equipment, provided for free. The full amount still not refunded: You have booked for one month, paid for 6 nights, were refunded for 3 nights against the weekly (lower) rate instead of the day rate. Do note that cleaning after your departure, quality assurance visit by our housekeeper and local representative added up to more cost than you rightfully paid for your 3 night stay! The true reason why you’re not happy is that it was raining during your stay and the weather forecast for the remainder of the visit was bad. Having found that out, you wanted to go to Mediterranean because it was sunny there and came up with false excuses of why should leave and get the full refund. However, we take much care of our guests and sent two separate to check cleanliness and address your complaints. We also offered you to switch to our second bigger house, which you declined. Basically no matter what we did, you just wanted to leave and pay nothing for your stay. We were generous and agreed on refunding 3 of the 6 nights. If you were honest and admitted that the true reason for your complaint and dissatisfaction was the bad wetter, things would have been very different. Instead you chose to come up with some false reasons, due to which we had to send two separate people to check the quality and cleanliness, unnecessarily wasting our and your time. This made your travel companion unhappy, caused a fight between you and her and now you are writing this unjustified bad review. Family Grozema

Excellent stay in Biscarrosse & Villa Calmers

  • 5 of 5

Biscarrosse is prachtig, evenals de locatie van huize Calmers (ligt net in het duingebied aan de binnenkant (= veel naaldbomen) en dichtbij een groot zoetwatermeer). Dit meer is uitstekend om met een baby de middag door te brengen (voldoende schaduwplekken, water is voor 80-120 meter niet dieper dan 30 cm). Biscarrosse heeft meer dan voldoende restaurants en supermarkten als de Super-U, Lidl of LeClerc(dit voor de eventuele 'thuiskokers').

Huize Calmers is zeer goed uitgerust (goede bedden, mooie dikke grote handdoeken, keuken met alles erop en eraan, BBQ, bad + douche voor de masterbedroom en een aparte douche bij de 2e slaapkamer, wasmachine + wasrek, zeep en handdoeken, babystoel en reiswieg zijn aanwezig) en van veel gemakken voorzien. Vooral het woongedeelte is impostant; het is niet duidelijk te zien op de foto's maar het is net alsof je een kleine kerk mag bewonen :-). Het is al eerder in een beoordeling genoemd - qua meubilair is het Ikea wat de klok slaat maar daar is niks mis mee (=functioneel).

Wij hadden onze Hollandse ouderwetse fietsen mee: een volgende keer laten we deze thuis. Huize Calmers ligt net in het duingebied met een paar flinke heuvels, veel versnellingen zijn benodigd om vanaf het meer huize Calmers te bereiken. Ook voor een rit naar Biscarrosse Plage is zeker een sportieve fiets nodig. Weet dat er een aantal stukken tussen zitten van 10% (ja,dit is het officiële fietspad!).

Mijn partner was nog nooit in Biscarrosse of omgeving geweest en was aangenaam verrast door wat deze plaats/omgeving te bieden heeft. Het was voor herhaling vatbaar, wij komen terug. Dat is zeker!
