Alan Rogers Review

On the shore of an extensive lake, surrounded by 250 hectares of pine forest and close to the long, sandy beaches of the Atlantic ocean, Indigo Lac de Carcans has plenty to offer lovers of the great outdoors, whilst being within easy reach of the châteaux and vineyards of Médoc and the bustling city of Bordeaux. The site has 280 pitches on sandy soil among the pine trees, with accommodation available in well equipped canvas tents on wooden platforms. Lac d’Hourtin-Carcans is France’s largest freshwater lake and provides numerous opportunities for water-based activities, whilst the Forêt Domaniale de Bombannes has a network of footpaths and over 120 km. of cycle tracks.

The Réserve Naturelle des Dunes et des Marais d’Hourtin lies to the north and the beaches of Carcans and Lacanau are an easy drive (or ride) through the pine forest. To the east Castelnau-de-Médoc and Saint-Laurent-Médoc are the closest of the many towns and villages worth visiting in this important wine-producing area; beyond these lies the western shore of the Garonne Estuary. To the south is Lège-Cap-Ferret at the northern point of the Bay of Arcachon, whilst from Le Verdon-sur-Mer to the north a ferry crosses to Royan.


Sanitary blocks provide hot showers, dishwashing and laundry sinks, washing machine and chemical disposal. Motorcaravan service point. Small shop with bread to order and basic supplies. Snack bar with takeaway facilities. Swimming and paddling pools. Playground. Volleyball, pétanque, basketball, handball and tennis courts. Organised activities in high season. Internet point. Direct access to lake shore.
