Why Visit the South West of France?

near beach
The Atlantic coast is known for its surfing, and water sports fans will find loads of brilliant spots to chase the perfect wave (Lacanau is a good option not far from Bordeaux, or you could even head to the legendary surf destination of Biarritz). However, if you’re searching for calmer waters or gentler waves, there are also plenty of great family-friendly beaches in South West France. La Réserve, for example, has its own private beach on the shores of the huge lake Biscarrosse, making it perfect not only for safe swimming for kids but also for water sports like sailing and paddle-boarding. Les Viviers also has a private lake on-site and is within easy reach of the protected waters of Arcachon Bay. Don’t miss out on the chance to climb to the top of the Dune du Pilat (Europe’s highest sand dune) to admire the view.

Towns & Cities
Besides the wine, it’s well worth taking a day trip to Bordeaux to enjoy the city in its own right. Stroll along the quays beside the Garonne River, enjoy its range of museums, art galleries and exhibitions, and marvel and the imposing white stone architecture of the city centre. Closer to Les Viviers holiday park, check out the elegant seaside resorts of Arcachon and Cap Ferret, both famous for their water sports and stunning views. If you’re staying at Les Dunes de Contis, why not visit the glitzy Biarritz (for a long time a favourite holiday destination of European royalty) of picturesque Bayonne (where you can learn more about the Basque country: its culture, traditions, language and cuisine).

Food & Drink
Of course, La Réserve has its own beautiful lakeside beach, but if you’re looking for the thrill of Atlantic waves you can easily head to Bisacarrosse itself, where the best of ocean, lake and forests meet. For those who searching for adventure, Biscarrosse makes an ideal location for trying out activities such as surfing, sand yachting or kiting. During the summer months, the beach is lifeguard-supervised. You can also explore the other lakes in the Biscarrosse area (there are three of them!) not to mention the beautiful expanse of forest (perfect for taking a stroll out of the midday sun). Charming Mimizan is another great seaside town to visit for a day trip; and it’s only 20 minutes drive from La Réserve holiday park.
