Nature break
in Lacanau

A chic & ecological campsite in Lacanau

This spot in Lacanau is the perfect place for a nature break.

In this age of biomimicry


Society is increasingly interested in the virtues of trees. By taking root, trees become part of the long term, nourish and protect the soil, and interact with their environment. In Lacanau, the hundred year old pine trees stand on the lake’s edge and provide you with the opportunity to admire them, and even to imitate them, for once, by taking the time to do so.


Nature has much to teach us and it is this unique nature that you can enjoy during your stay at our Slow Village Lacanau campsite, on the shores of one of the largest lakes in the Gironde, surrounded by wooded dunes, and only a few minutes’ walk from the Atlantic Ocean and its immense beaches.

108 Lodges & Cottages
35 Tiny Houses
557Pitches under the pines

Dispersed throughout a 14 hectares area of wooded dunes of on the lake’s edge!


A golden location
on the sublime Côte d’Argent

Sheltered from the ocean winds, the Lacanau lake stretches out in a natural setting dotted with maritime pines, gorse, mimosas, broom, reeds and water lilies…

….and your premium lodge tent which comfortably accommodates you, on the edge of this immense 2,000 hectare lake, with all the services of your Slow Village, and in particular this cheerful ‘Guinguette’ on the edge of the lake in which you can chill out with a drink in your hand and enjoy delicious tapas.


Discover the inner mysteries of the great lake, which is home to a network of meandering waterways and a myriad of wild creeks and natural bays, known here as conches. And when you return from your canoe trip, find the peace and quiet of your Lacanau Slow Village campsite in a lakeside atmosphere with its “Guinguette” and its bystanders.
