A popular beach resort town on the Atlantic coast, Arcachon offers you fine, sandy beaches and a particularly mild climate said to be favorable to people suffering from pulmonary diseases. This town is in the Gironde department just southwest of Bordeaux in the Landes forest. In the summer, the lovely surroundings become jam-packed with tourists, so it's always a good idea to plan ahead when you need to get somewhere on time. \"Arcachonnaise\" is the local name for an Arcachon villa, the architectural style of the city's many older houses. Many criticized this style of unique Victorian architecture for generations, but now many people consider it charming and deeply human. Arcachon is in Gironde.
