Just 1 km away is the Lac Hourtin-Carcans; the largest freshwater lake in France, with plenty of watersports opportunities as well as a sandy lake beach. The lake even has a 'Children's Island' - a 10 hectare leisure park for children from 3 months to 12 years. The Gironde is also famous for its vineyards including the renowned Château Mouton Rothschild which even has it's own wine museum. As you might expect, there are many vineyard tours and, of course, wine-tasting opportunities, nearby. What's more, the wonderful city of Bordeaux is only an hour away and offers a wealth of sightseeing opportunities.
