Example of a map
If you drive to Bordeaux, we advise you to park on the first day at your hotel in Arcachon where parking is free (not bookable places) or in the surrounding streets near the Place de Verdun,
very safe because the police station is located around the corner.
The first day of your stay is an arrival day without biking so you have plenty of time to drop off your luggage in Bordeaux and drive to Arcachon to park for your vehicle.
You take the train to get back to Bordeaux, where you get your bikes in a shop near the train station.
To get back to starting point:
Regional trains take you back to your starting point if you wish. They are accessible without booking in advance and bicycles are free. You have to buy your ticket on spot (full rate 11.20€/adult). The duration of the commute is about 50 minutes. You will find the timetable of the day in your travel documents.
The first day is an arrival day without cycling. You arrive whenever you want depending on from where you come. Please note that rooms are usually available in the middle of the afternoon depending on your accommodation. We thank you to advise us if you plan to arrive late.
