What should I pack when moving to Arcachon?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Arcachon to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Arcachon, you should pack a variety of clothing to accommodate for the mild winters and warm summers. This includes lightweight clothing for the summer months, as well as warmer clothing like sweaters and jackets for the cooler months. Don't forget to pack a good pair of walking shoes, as the city is best explored on foot. Also, bring a swimsuit for the beach and a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun. You should also pack any necessary medications and a basic first aid kit. If you wear prescription glasses or contact lenses, bring an extra pair and enough supplies. Remember to bring all necessary documents such as your passport, driver's license, and any other identification. If you're moving for work or study, bring any necessary paperwork related to that as well. Pack a French-English dictionary or phrasebook, or download a translation app on your phone, to help with communication. Bring a power adapter for your electronics, as France uses a different type of plug than many other countries. Lastly, consider packing a few personal items to make your new place feel like home, such as photos or small mementos," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Arcachon, France.
