Hourtin lake, the largest in France, is a 10 minute walk, where there is a lovely sandy beach with lifeguard supervised swimming, windsurfing, catamaran sailing, canoeing and water skiing. There are many colourful bars and restaurants overlooking the lake, and you can hire a motor boat to explore it.

The pool is fonctional from april up to mid october.
The pool is heated with a heat pump, which means that the temperature of the pool depends on the air temperature, as we can only warm up the pool by a few degrees above the outside air temperature.
So if the air temperature is about 20°, the pool will be about 23°;
