Set in a beautiful pine forest, this lively parc puts Bordeaux’s vineyards within easy reach

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 set amidst a beautiful pine forest. Its waterpark includes: an Aqua Pirates fun park, with endless slides and water cascades, 2 pool complexes and a pool with 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. 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.
