Le Dalon Plage

Bungalow in La Saline-les-Bains

It's just a short amble from the Plage de la Souris Chaude to this hedonistic, gay-friendly place. Guests are allowed (if not incited) to swim naked in the gleaming pool. Too prudish? Slumber in one of the two fully equipped studios; the cheaper one is slightly darker than the other. There's also a small, plain room with shared bathroom in the owners' house.

The flowery garden is a feast for the eyes – it helps that François, one of the two owners, is a gardener.
