We already know the area but had never been in Carcans Plage and we must say that it is really a good surprise. We used to go to Lacanau resort but ended up this time in this small, quiet and genuine place. We only spent a couple of days but the location is great to chill out and enjoy your holidays. If you look for a people friendly place with sun, sand, ocean, pine forest and lake, there you are! No need to use your car at all once you reached the apartment. It's just right in the center where restaurants and shops are located (no car area). We have a baby and we enjoyed the apartment since it's well equiped and convenient for a family (nice wooden deck too). Although it was pretty warm outside it was cool inside. Not to mention but the beach is on the doorstep and I went surfing as often as I could. I am sure we'll visit again!
