Visit Hourtin with the family
Into the water everyone! With surfing lessons from the huge beaches of Hourtin and trips around France's largest freshwater lake, being in the water forms an integral part of family holidays in Hourtin.
Hourtin is a place of adventures and all sorts of outings, as well as being home to a kingdom that's wholly dedicated to younger holidaymakers: the Île aux Enfants (children's island)! Located at Hourtin Port, come and discover this fully pedestrianised leisure island that's also free of charge, enjoy its summer entertainment, its fort and its games that are open to all. Back at the campsite, children will be asking for just one thing: getting into their soft beds for a good night's sleep!
