Great holiday ideas & holiday activities for all the Family.

Canoeing & Kayaking near the accommodation.



A peaceful, natural retreat - refresh yourself!
An area of over 300 sq km and a population of just 350,000 - the Landes National Park is somewhere to spread your wings and to get back in touch with nature. Visitors here invariably leave with a renewed sense of peace and vitality. For active days there are lakes for boating, swimming, picnic-ing or just observing the wildlife, and several centres for horse-riding, canoeing, cycle trails, rambling along marked routes or discovering local history. Join in village festivals in summer - lively, friendly, great fun! In the north the wine country is on your doorstep, in the middle and south the ocean beaches of Côte d'Argent and Côte Basque are in easy reach, as is the culture and heritage of Gascony. All in all, a natural haven.

The Pyrénées offer lots of opportunities

 for organized outdoor activities

 (rafting, body boards, rock climbing, potholing, canyoning etc…) run by centres where full tuition and all equipment is provided. These activities are on the whole for families with older children who are looking for that adrenalin rush and bit of extra excitement that perhaps a gentle canoe/kayak ride doesn’t give!

In the western Pyrénées the towns of Sauveterre-de-Béarn and Laàs, have white water rafting centres which offer ½ or whole day excursions. An ability to swim at least 25m is  essential.


Centre Nautique de Soeix
Tel No: (0)5 59 39 61 00.
Here a whole days rafting starts at 09.30 when you leave your car at Sauveterre-de Béarn and are then taken by bus to Navarrenx upstream. There is a stop for lunch  (cooked on an open fire on a river beach can be part of the cost, or bring your own picnic) and the day finishes back at your car.  You are strongly advised to book in advance, especially during the peak season.
