Alan Rogers Review
Camping Les Ecureuils is a friendly site of 100 pitches located close to the centre of the popular resort of Mimizan. The nearest sandy beaches lie around 7 km. distant. The 70 touring pitches are of average size with limited shade from immature trees, and some with 6A electricity. A few mobile homes and chalets are available to rent. There is an attractive swimming pool with a paddling pool adjacent. Other amenities include a snack bar and small bar. These are available during the high season (July/August). Given the site’s forest location, individual barbecues are not permitted but communal barbecues are provided.
Cycling is very popular in the area and there are many miles of excellent tracks through the forest (the nearest tracks can be accessed 1 km. from Les Ecureuils). Mimizan also has an attractive nine-hole golf course. To the north, the Dune de Pyla is Europe’s highest sand dune and there are some fine sandy beaches in its vicinity.
