Dune du Pilat
Arcachon, the ideal holiday destination!
Book your spot in the sun on the Atlantic coast! Ideally situated next to the Bassin d’Arcachon and the Landes great lakes, your campsite in Aquitaine invites you to sample the delights of a holiday on the ocean shore. This is the place you’ve been dreaming of to set off and discover the Landes de Gascogne forest and all the water-based leisure available here where boardsports rule supreme! What more could you ask for?
On-site, enjoy the campsite’s wide range of high-end services and facilities to make your holiday even more amazing. Once your tent is up or your bags unpacked in your comfortable well-equipped mobile home, it’s time to head for the bathing area to tone up with an aquagym lesson or speed down in a fun waterslide contest. After a family tournament on the multisports ground or a pétanque competition at the foot of the pines, you can all get together on the restaurant terrace ready to plan the programme for tomorrow!
Visit Arcachon with the family
Bathing, watersports and games on the beach, exactly the programme your little campers have been dreaming of for their holiday on the Atlantic coast! And that couldn’t be better, Arcachon has everything they’ve been looking forward to and more!
By bike along the coast fringed with soft fine sand, it’s easy to reach the Pereire beach and enjoy a gorgeous view as you look out to the Cap Ferret peninsula and its famous red and white lighthouse. Towards the Dune du Pilat, discover the lifeguarded beach of Le Moulleau, an unbeatable spot to savour a great ice cream with the family, your toes in the water. You prefer freshwater to salt water? Head for the Sanguinet or Biscarrosse Lakes to the south and paddle off for a fun outing in a canoe!
Visit Arcachon as a couple
It’s the moment to treat yourselves to a real break, so come and escape to another world. After all, you’ve been dreaming of it for so long! And we couldn’t recommend a more heavenly spot than the warm sand of Arcachon to unwind and make the most of your romantic stay.
How about a little outing, just the two of you? Aboard a canoe or a SUP, paddle out to the Île aux Oiseaux lying in the centre of the Bassin d’Arcachon, only just above the water line. At high tide, float gently between the stilts of its famous “cabanes tchanquées” so emblematic of the Arcachon landscape. Then, as night falls, share a delicious moment looking out across the ocean: oysters, foie gras, scallops... The Bassin d’Arcachon is literally brimming with delights to suit every palate!
