"After several years going to France this was the best campsite we have stayed at so far. The water area was fab as were the shows at night."

INTRODUCING LA RIVE

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.
