LACANAU Les Grands Pins

South West France

Selected because of its location in a pine forest just 350m from a lovely stretch of sandy beach suitable for surfing. The pretty flowery entrance welcomes you to a site where all the buildings are wooden clad and have attractive terracotta tiled roofs. There is a wealth of activities both on the site and on the beach including a spa centre and an adult-only pool. It is a great spot for a relaxing family holiday with plenty of entertainment. Half of the site is a traffic free zone except on arrival and departure day with separate areas outside for parking. Clef Verte and Ecolabel.

This is the third time we have stayed at the site. It is a very family friendly site, very good facilities. It has 3 workout classes a day which is great to keep fit. The shower blocks are clean at least 3 times a day and they are very clean indeed. There is a good shop on site. It is great you can walk to the beach from the site, if you take bikes you never need to use are car!! Although it is a big site it doesn't really feel like it is as there is a good mix of pitches and rented accommodation so the shower blocks are not over busy. I didn't queue once this August for a shower and that is when the site was full. We always got a sun lounger. People have been going year after year so that speaks for itself....Frances' best kept secret! We've already booked for next year.....
