La Forêt

France - Gironde - Pyla sur Mer

Camping La Forêt

Set at the entrance to the Bay of Archachon, where the sea and the wind create many forms of dunes and sandbanks. Thsi campsite is both educational (beautiful nature) and relaxing (in a deck chair at the water park).

Why camping La Forêt ?

  • First you'll have to climb the 50m ladder to the top of the Dune du Pilat. Take a big breath, enjoy the amazing view. And then... run through the sand to the beach below!
  • Walking around the dune is also an option. Then it's a 3km trip, but there's also a bus.
  • The campsite has a water park with a heated pool and a children's pool.
  • Sport for everyone: football, tennis, volleyball, table tennis and even a proper climbing wall.
  • Mini golf for the whole family, plus a great golf course kess than 3km away if you want the real thing.
  • If the weather is poor, the entertainment is in the indoor playroom. Usually the dancing is under the open skies, as it should be in this region.

Tip from the specialist:

"A luxurious family campsite behind the Dune du Pilat, the highest sand dune in Europe. Try running from the top of this sandy hill down to the beach!"

The surrounding area of La Forêt

There's plenty of culture to be had around the bustling provincial capital of Bordeaux. Plus lots of flat cycle routes and safe inland seas for young children. This is a place for holiday fun that will suit the whole family.

Some tips for your holiday at La Forêt in Pyla sur Mer

  • The inland sea of Sanguinet is ideal for young children. Shallow, no tide, so safe. It is 18km from the campsite - a nice idea for a cycling trip for the whole family.
  • Archachon, a town set beside the inland sea of the same name, is close by. Sample the wonderful fish in the restuarants here. Head 20km south to reach the pretty town of Biscarosse, full of quaint streets and shops.
  • Colourful parachutes fly from the dune over the campsite area throughout the day. Nice to watch, or you could give it a go yourself (under expert guidance).
  • The forest behind the campsite is ideal for walking and cycling in the cool shade.
  • Barely 50km to the east lies the famous wine city of Bordeaux. Beside wine, this city offers beautiful architecture and elegant bridges over the Garonne river. Experience the indefineable atmosphere on the terraces of the old city centre.
