Les Dunes de Contis, a luxury campsite in Saint Julien en Born
In Saint Julien en Born, at the heart of a pine forest and just a stone’s throw from the Atlantic ocean, you will find the Les Dunes de Contis campsite. This 4-star establishment, a member of the Siblu chain, which proves, above all, family-orientated and convivial, offers you countryside holidays, in peaceful, protected and green surroundings. Some 22 hectares of pine forest, sun to tan your skin, sports and water activities...what more could you ask for, for dream holidays as a family, or with friends.
Camping at the heart of the forest, a verdant paradise for young and old alike
Initially, you will fall under the spell of the water complex (with lifeguards) of the camping village, comprised of a swimming pool, a heated pool, a paddling pool and an “Aquatower”, for the delight of the very young. Older children will explode with laughter, on the water slide and the multi-slides, whilst enthusiasts of idleness will bask on one of the shaded sunbeds of the sunbathing area.
Children will be delighted to make new friends in one of the 3 mini-clubs given over to them, run by a passionate and creative activity team. According to their age, they will be able to freely make the most of the activities offered in the Bubbles Playroom for those aged 1 to 4, the Pirate Club for those aged 5 to 9, or the Barracudas Club, for those aged 10 to 14. A playground comprised of wooden play facilities, will delight your little ones, and who knows maybe they will by chance come across one of the famous mascots of this campsite in the Landes.
Older children are not left out! A multitude of activities will be proposed for you, to complement your stay. On the menu: pétanque, ping-pong, archery, tennis or even beach volleyball. In the daytime as in the evening, the cheerful activity leaders of Les Dunes de Contis, offer you sports tournaments, team games, outdoor fitness classes, cabaret shows and dance evenings.
An idyllic setting for holidays in harmony with the countryside
As regards accommodation, you can pitch your tent or park your camper on vast and wooded pitches. Alternatively you may opt for the comfort of mobile homes from the “Esprit”, “Elégance” or “Excellence” range with an equipped kitchen, bathrooms, and up to 3 bedrooms to accommodate couples, young famillies, large tribes and groups of friends.
You will be able to concoct delicious summer dishes in your mobile home, or cook grills on your barbecue. Moreover if you wish to simply slide your feet under the table, the bar-restaurant “Le Pignada” will be delighted to welcome you, for an apéritif with friends, or dinner as a family.
From the campsite, there is a cycle track, both shaded and marked out, which leads you directly through the pine forest, to the town of Contis, its lighthouse and its magnificent fine sandy beaches. If you do not like pedalling, a free shuttle bus makes it possible to travel the 4 kilometres that separates you from the Atlantic Ocean. Once there, you will be able to happily swim, bask in the sun on the beach, enjoy an ice cream and admire the sunset. For sports enthusiasts: surfing, canoeing, single-handed dinghy, sailing, stand-up paddle boarding and pedalo await you, not forgetting water skiing and parasailing.
Discovering the Landes, the Atlantic coast and its intoxicating landscapes
Your stay in the Landes will be the opportunity to discover the delights of the Landes. The waves of the Hossegor beach, horse rides as the sun sets, treetop adventure courses, a mini-golf course, and why not arouse all of your senses, during an evening canoe trip on the La Palue river?
You can take a stroll in Biarritz, in the neighbouring Pays Basque (Basque Country), shop, visit the “Centre de la Mer” (a sea life centre) and its 50 aquariums, have a drink, sample tapas on the terrace and, of course, have your fill of the Basque Country culinary specialities.
Or conquer the highest dune in Europe, and hurtle down the 102 metres of sand on the Dune du Pilat. Take advantage of this to visit the delightful Arcachon Basin, the cabins on stilts of the Ile aux Oiseaux island, and the oyster basins. On your return, go to the village of Cap Ferret, and go back to the campsite with a head full of landscapes, and a smile on your lips.
