Hourtin Lake, a must-visit during your holiday!
66km² no less, and that means a whole lot of activities to enjoy! Welcome to your campsite on Hourtin Lake, the largest natural lake in France. Nestling between the Landes forest and the Atlantic Ocean, Hourtin Lake is particularly appreciated by families in search of bathing, watersports and a well-deserved rest at the water’s edge. And that just happens to be exactly the holiday recipe you’ll enjoy when camping with Sandaya!
Only a step away from the beaches, settle yourself comfortably in one of our fully-equipped mobile homes or set up camp on a tree-planted pitch. You’ll have the whole of nature as your garden! Camping on the Atlantic coast also means you can count on our bathing areas with waterslides and heated swimming pools, our free children’s clubs and our sports grounds by the seashore. One thing is certain, you won’t have time to get bored this summer!
Visit Hourtin Lake with the family
Exceptional levels of sunshine, a dream of a spot right by the water, an immense pine forest... Hourtin is without doubt a first class destination. Come and discover it when camping with Sandaya!
With its lifeguarded beaches, its wide range of watersports and its shallow water, Hourtin Lake is ideal for a family outing. But what your little cherubs will love above all will be the Île aux Enfants (Children's Island), of course! Located at Hourtin Port on the eastern shore of the lake, this surprising outdoor activity centre is free, open all year and totally dedicated to kids. Castle, rope pyramid and a vast playground... It’s time to launch an attack!
Visit Hourtin Lake as a couple
For soaking up the sun, pedalling or getting out on the water, Hourtin Lake offers the promise of a delightful outing made for two, as you discover all its idyllic little nooks. At the top of the list: the Piqueyrot beach to the north-west of the lake. Sometimes the victim of its own success in high season, why not pay a visit at the end of the day and share a much more romantic moment!
Dyed-in-the-wool sports-lovers? Treat yourselves to a fun watersports lesson together at one of the lake’s outdoor activity centres: kitesurfing, paddleboarding, wakeboarding, waterskiing... You’ll be spoilt for choice. After all, holidays are made for trying something new!
Camping Hourtin Lake: our handy tips for a successful stay
Operation relaxation! And why not try a yoga lesson... out on the lake? On a standup paddleboard, there’s nothing better for a gentle start to the morning.
Particularly well-stocked with fish, Hourtin Lake will delight any keen angler: pike, perch, carp... It’ll be home-cooking this evening!
You’ve forgotten your picnic hamper? No worries, the welcoming terrace of a lakeside restaurant beckons!
