Alan Rogers Review

Camping L'Orée du Bois is located on the French peninsula Médoc. You will stay on a sheltered site, four kilometres from the Lac d'Hourtin-Carcans, a large lake with a beautiful sandy beach. On site you can also swim when it rains; the swimming pool has a sliding roof. In the summer months there are boules tournaments, dance evenings and archery workshops. This small site is situated on the edge of a forest, directly on the road to the village of Hourtin. There are 35 touring pitches. Trees and shrubs divide the pitches, giving you both shade and privacy on your pitch. There are also 26 mobile homes, chalets and comfortable lodge tents available to hire. There is a supermarket half a kilometre from the site. Every Thursday, and in July and August every Tuesday and Saturday, there's a market here. For a day at the beach, you can also go to the Atlantic Ocean. This is another ten kilometres away. Surfers who choose to travel here will be rewarded, because the waves on this part of the French west coast are real challenges.

Barbecue area available with loan of cooking grills (individual barbecues prohibited on the pitches). Indoor swimming pool. Children’s play area. Wi-Fi charged. Library. Public telephone. Boules.
