Camping in the beautiful Médoc

Campsite Des Familles is located on a peninsula between the mouth of the Gironde and the Atlantic, just above Bordeaux in the Médoc. An area with vineyards, woods, dunes and above all plenty of water. There is the ocean, of course, and there are also large lakes (Carcans, Lacanau, Biscarosse and Parentis) and the River Gironde, which is very wide here. The beautiful bay of Arcachon is just to the south.

Pleasant French ambiance

If you are looking for a family campsite with an authentic French ambiance, close to the sea, Des Familles campsite is the place for you! It's just 4 km away from a beautiful sandy beach on France's west coast, along a road through the woods. This route can also be enjoyed by bike. There are a number of small, friendly restaurants right by the sea, so you don't have to go straight home after a day on the beach. Back 'home' on the campsite there is a safe, fenced off swimming pool with a paddling pool for small children, a sun patio and several loungers. There is a basic restaurant with a renovated patio area and views of the boules area. Children will make new friends on holiday at the great playground and table tennis area.

Lovely outings in a great holiday area

If you are interested in day trips, take the ferry to the old town of Royan on the other side of the Gironde and visit La Palmyre Zoo. Or you can visit one of the many chateaux of the Médoc! There are several theme parks in Arcachon, as well as Europe's highest dune! You can pamper yourself in the Thalazur spa in Châtelaillon-Plage (Turkish baths, massages, swimming pool, jacuzzi and much, much more).

The last week in September is clearly end of season as some of the facilities were not available - restaurant only open at the weekend. However, the owner booked us into a nearby cafe/restaurant. Customer service is excellent. Site has beautiful swimming pool, play area if you have children, beautiful setting, very clean site, accommodation is excellent, kitchen is well kitted out. Local Spar shop only a short walk and very friendly.



The campsite was well maintained. Spacious and very accommodating.
The facilities are sparse but adequately maintained.
