Parc reviews

Parc highlights

  • Walk in to the lively resort of Hourtin Plage

  • Take a trip to Lake Carcans-Hourtin, France’s largest freshwater lake

  • Watch the kids walk the plank at the Aqua Pirates fun park

Between Bordeaux’s historic town centre and the area’s vineyards you’ll discover Côte D’Argent.

Though it’s ideal for wine lovers, it’s an outdoorsy sort of place loved by families, too. The parc is just 300 metres from a sandy beach, and France’s largest freshwater lake is just 10 minutes away by car. Set amidst a beautiful pine forest, Côte D’Argent’s water park features four huge pools, including a retractable roof, making it perfect for any weather (that’s why it’s the only one open prior to the 1st of June). Being pool-side is so popular that we’ve put most of our accommodation close by. Looking for a challenge? See if you can drag the kids away from the brand new Aqua Pirates fun park with its endless slides and water cascades. When evening arrives, look no further than Hourtin Plage, a nearby resort that’s brimming with lively restaurants in high season and offers a more laid-back atmosphere throughout the rest of the year.

        Brilliant holiday. Site is great - the pirate water slide is the best! Just a short walk from a very nice sandy beach and those waves - so much fun. A very relaxing atmosphere on the site, in the village and on the beach.
