    Hi, wondered if anyone could recommend a nice quiet site close enough to walk or cycle into Arcachon. We are hoping to visit last week in June. We do not like pools or entertainment, but love the beach and sunny plots, all the sites I have looked at seem to be all in the shade. Any other recommendations in this part of France near water would be welcome.

    Thanks for any help

    Lynne

    We stayed at a municipal run site at Carcans plage about 5 years ago, it was just behind the beach and there were cycle paths all around. Not sure it will be close enough? Camping municipal de l' ocean.

    We have stayed at La Cigale in Ares ..... It does have a pool but was quiet with no loud entertainment when we were there about 3 years ago.
    Most of the pitches are shaded or partly so as it does get very hot there.
    Ares is a nice little town with a little fishing harbour close by and nice beaches all within walking or cycling distance.

    The aire at Reserve Ornithologique Le Teich is pleasant but maybe a little too far to walk into Arcachon.

    If you are into birding (the feathered variety that is) the reserve is well worth a visit.

    Thank you all for your suggestions, it is nice to have a few recommendations as it is so far, I am counting the days now, only manage 1 10 day trip a year so like to get it right. So thanks again.
