There's no need to bring beach toys - we provide everything from buckets & spades for toddlers to bodyboards for teenagers, and a windbreak and parasol too. Like most French beaches, there are children's beach clubs during July and August, and life-guarded bathing areas. Surf lessons are available too, and there's a skate park to the south of the town.





Close to the house (a few minutes walk through the dunes) are the “Piscines" - shallow pools created by the concrete beach stabilisation works of the 1930s – these are very popular with families with small children. And, on those rare (in summer) occasions when the sea is too rough, a short trip to Le Verdon, takes you to the sheltered river estuary beach, la Chambrette.



There's loads of other things to do:- tennis, horseriding, sandyachting, windsurfing , dinghy & catamaran sailing, even a forest adventure park, parachuting and microlight trips.




As the area is mostly flat - dunes and pine forests, there's easy cycling on the bike trails. One trail starts right by the Beach House, running 5 miles through the forest to Pointe de Grave, port for the car ferry to Royan. There are walking trails too and the long distance path, the GR 8, also passes the Beach House.
