"This Summer, we stayed at Arcachon for the first time and we were meeting some friends for the night, opposite to the Cap Ferret. We were pleasantly surprised because there is a night service shuttles which allowed us to meet our friends during the day and to get back easily after dinner. It is a very appreciable and uncommon means of transport for us, coming from the Center of France."
