The largest natural freshwater lakes in France

Enjoy a visit the two largest freshwater lakes in France which are only 30 minutes from the campsite :

  • Le Lac de Hourtin-Carcans: 18 kms long – 5 kms wide – 6000 ha
  • Le Lac de Lacanau: 1980 ha

On foot or by bike discover this preserved site bordered by sand dunes and the forest.

Stretching over 8000 ha, these two lakes offer a multitude of activities for the young and old:

  • Safe Bathing in water at over  20°
  • Fishing
  • Sailing activities
  • Canoe/Kayak

The colours of the lakes contrast with those of the Atlantic coast, we recommend a stroll to the small village of Moutchic set on the shores of Lake Lacanau (25 kms from the campsite).

This itinerary will allow you to discover at the same time the The Médoc and its Fine wines.
