Parc reviews

Parc highlights

Les Genêts is a lively parc, attractively located amidst woodland, perfect for exploring. The centrepiece is the excellent waterpark with slides, chutes and lazy river, plus whirlpools and ample space for sunbathing, overlooked by the parc's popular, modern bar. Bicycle hire is available on parc, as well as tennis, football, aqua aerobics and even scuba diving lessons. In the high season there's organised evening entertainment, including children's and family discos, plus an animation programme for the whole family. Just a short stroll off parc is a gorgeous sandy beach, and slightly further out is the resort of Merlin Plage, complete with waterpark, sandy beach and restaurants.
