HOURTIN Le Village Western

South West France

Selected as this Castels site lives and breathes the American Wild West theme. Set out in pine trees surrounded by fields full of horses, this is the perfect site for fans of cowboy films and horse lovers. There is a Wells Fargo station, a small shop pretending to sell shotguns and an amazing stable complex at the entrance to the site. The architecture and the onsite entertainment all follow this same theme. You really feel as though you are in a Wild West Show! The site is 400m from Hourtin Lake.
