You Said

"Safe, clean and friendly park with a brilliant lake side beach and great pool and water park. 2nd year for us in La Rive and it was fantastic. We will be doing a 3rd year."

Trusted Customer, July 2019


La Rive offers one of the largest indoor and outdoor swimming centres in the Aquitaine area and is a splash-a-minute family paradise not too far from the evocative vineyards of Bordeaux.

Families will find life on the park to be lively, with site-run Kids Clubs for 4-12 year olds. Naturally, one of the main draws will be the swimming complex, which features a lagoon, lazy river, Jacuzzi, kids pool (including a water spray park and fun characters including monkeys, parrots, and snakes), plus a 50 m² rectangular pool, classically shaped. 

Around the holiday park, families will find the nearest town is the delightful town of Biscarosse, which is only 7km away and is home to a stunning sandy beach. However, families will also find further afield Arcachon, Dax, and the port city of Bordeaux. The latter is ideal for a day trip to one of France's most famous cities.
