In southwest France, just south of Bordeaux and the glimmering Bay of Arcachon, lies Biscarrosse. It is a remarkable three-in-one holiday destination. Biscarrosse-Plage presides over immensely long, sandy beaches with the rolling surf of the Atlantic Ocean crashing their shores. Biscarrosse-Ville is an established, lively resort offering all and any activity you could wish for. And Biscarrosse-Lac sits around not one but three tranquil, inland, freshwater lakes reminiscent of a giant lagoon in the South Pacific. Even better, it’s also ‘home’ to nearby Siblu holiday park, La Réserve and a short distance from another, Les Dunes de Contis.


Welcome to La Réserve in South West France! With its own private beach on the massive Lake Biscarrosse, it's a fantastic holiday park for those who love nothing more than the sensation of sand between their toes.

Go to the lake
Biscarrosse Ville (the main town) is situated to the north of the huge lake that bears the same name. On lake Biscarrosse itself you'll find every watersports activity you can imagine and catering for all levels, from novice to expert. And given that the water's so warm, it doesn't really matter if you you fall off the paddle board time after time. You will find cycle paths all along the boarder of the lake, meaning you can discover the numerous beaches on offer, including at Siblu's La Reserve campsite -which is situated on the south side of the lake - which has its own private beach.

Go to the sea
The south west of France is known for its beautiful, long sandy beaches that stretch for as far as the eye can see, and Biscarrosse Plage is no exception. Biscarrosse is also a surfers paradise and there are a number of surf schools which offer both equipment rental and surf lessons for all levels. Alternatively, grab a bodyboard in one of the many beachside shops and play around in the breakers.
For those more inclined to relax on their holiday there is another side to Biscarrossem which offers the perfect base to watch the sunset from, accompanied of course by a typical French 'Apero' of wine and nibbles.

The biggest inflatable waterpark in the world is a big claim to fame and the AquaPark Biscarrosse is rightly proud of this title. Starting at the very reasonable price of €10 for an hour, it's a great activity for all adventure minded families, and certainly makes memories that will last for years.
