Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Direct access to a shallow lake with loads of watersports on offer

  • Watch a lively show at the indoor amphitheatre

  • Make a splash in the huge pool complex

Love water sports? Then you’ll fall for Domaine de la Rive, a lakeside parc with direct access to one of the best beaches - and lakes - in the south west of France.

Here you can enjoy whichever water sports take your fancy. How about windsurfing Wednesdays and sailing Saturdays? Or stay on dry land and wind round the endless cycle paths that’ll take you into the forest or along the lake. This award-winning parc also offers a recently developed water park, complete with a huge water playground, with four slides and a giant water bucket that tips out onto bathers below - watch out! And enjoy the wave pool whatever the weather, thanks to its retractable dome cover. If relaxation is more your thing, try the indoor Jacuzzi, lazy river, spa and wellness centre complete with massage waterbeds. When evening arrives, why not relax at the restaurant complex, with a tapas bar that overlooks the pool and spacious play area? All of this, and the charming towns of Arcachon and Bordeaux within an easy drive? Maybe windsurfing Wednesdays can be pushed to Thursday?

Pools

There are seven pools to choose from. So whether you’re looking for indoor, outdoor, covered, water slides, water chutes, fountains, or plain old Jacuzzi (only here does a Jacuzzi become plain old!) this is the place to be. There’s even a theme park with a wave pool. not quite big enough for your surfboard but certainly tall enough to make a mighty splash.

      We enjoyed our stay very much at this site especially the lovely beach.Due to the hot weather we didn't venture far but had fun hiring pedalo's, canoes and bikes. The Dune du Pyla is a 'must' for anyone visiting this area.

      The campsite, although situated in a lovely area, was far too busy for us, and the standard of accommodation was disappointing for the money. The overall impression was that we would holiday in the area again but not at this site and not with Eurocamp again.
