Arcachon: the opening of the Grand Atlantic Hotel
On the 1st of July, the latest addition to the city’s hotel scene opened its doors in the picturesque Saint Ferdinand fishing district, just 300m from the port. A member of the Hotels and Preferences collection, this 4-star hotel offers 57 bedrooms with décor reminiscent of the maritime world that aligns modernity and comfort. Our favourites? Those rooms located on the upper floors, which stretch over 31m2 and boasts balconies overlooking the Winter City Port. Throughout the hotel, enormous multi-coloured frescos reflect certain places and features of the Basin: oyster-farming villages, ports, fishing boats…the Grand Atlantic Hotel also benefits from a sun lounge with a wonderful 180° panoramic view over the changing landscape of the Archachon Basin. A concierge service is also at your disposal, responding to guests’ requests – and let’s not forget the gym, sauna and jacuzzi. A.F.-M.
