There are many activities held in the square during the Summer, with live music, dancing, exhibitions and crafts. 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.

There is a riding centre and tennis courts, with skateboard park, archery and childrens adventure island with a wooden fort. There are several golf courses, and Lacanau lake within a short drive. The Atlantic coast beach with some of the best surfing in Europe, is 10 minutes away.


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°;

if the air temperature is 24° the pool will reach 27° etc.
