  • We were on a trip in October 2019, and we were staying at the Hotel-Appart Le Trianon. We walked around the city, and climbing (because yes it climbs a bit anyway), we arrived in this beautiful "Winter City" !!!! We fell in love! The houses are beautiful, I'm a real estate agent by profession, well it's really beautiful. Walking a little further, you arrive in a beautiful park, and you can see the sea in the distance! I recommend you go to this beautiful city with typical streets.

  • Walking around this area is a real treat for those who love the architecture of beautiful mansions. Leaping into the past, we take to the game of imagining, by discovering the name of these villas, the lives of its inhabitants! Absolutely to do.

  • Don't hesitate to get lost in the winter city. The houses are amazing in their size, the wall decorations, the bright facades, the stairs... Beautiful discovery over Moorish Park

  • Very nice residential area in Arcachon! Plenty of nice Villas! Good for a 2 hours walk
  • Nice winter villas well mentained, good for leisure walks.
  • My favorite neighborhood. Good walks to do in spring and autumn. Even in summer the trees offer us shade. Nothing better than getting lost in the streets and admiring the beautiful arcachonese buildings. Walking around is really a pleasure.
