Île aux Oiseaux
Dax, the ideal holiday destination!
Between its rich local gastronomy, its Gallo-Roman heritage and the undeniable benefits of its thermal waters, Dax is unbeatable when it comes to well-being. At the edge of the majestic Landes pine forest, come and discover it during your holiday and book a camping stay that is truly close to nature!
Between the ocean and the forest, our 4 and 5 star campsites in Nouvelle-Aquitaine blend seamlessly into their unspoilt environment, the guarantee of a true return to nature. Stay in a cottage as comfortable as it is convenient, a lodge tent to reconnect with your inner adventurer, or on a family camping pitch. Then put together your own programme of activities: sliding, bathing and aquagym in the heated swimming pools of the water park, a game of pétanque beneath the pines or perhaps a tennis match with your neighbours from the mobile home next door. In other words, feel free to do exactly what you want to!
