france: the sunny south west

Sand dunes, surfers and sunshine surround you when you
choose holidays in France?s
South West.


A stay on the stunning Cote d’Argent gives you a huge choice
of activities ? whether you choose to head to the surfer packed beaches at
places like Hourtin-Plage, into the city of Bordeaux or to the lively resort of
Lacanau where you can have your pick or restaurants, cafés and shops to browse


But one more sedate way of relaxing and escaping your life
at home is to visit Lake Carcans-Hourtin, which is France?s largest freshwater

So large that it has its own sandy bays, a visit to the lake is like a
day at the beach, but calmer. In fact, the lake even has a selection of marinas
dotted around its shores.


While sitting on a deck chair you?ll be able to watch an
abundance of wildlife going about its daily business, with Montagu’s harriers often
seen darting across the blue sky seeking their next meal.


For the more active amongst you, a visit to the lake
provides the chance to try your hand at sailing and other watersports, while
there are also a few spas around the lake, which can pamper you and make sure
you are fully relaxed.


And for anyone with children, the lake has been awarded the
Famille Plus label, with its Children’s Island, a 10-hectare leisure park
designed for children aged 3 months to 12 years old, providing enough thrills
and spills to entertain young families all day long.
