One of the most beautiful campsites in Basque Country
Le Ruisseau is undoubtedly one of the finest campsites in the Basque Country. Located in Bidart, a seaside resort neighbouring Biarritz, this exceptional establishment offers holidaymakers the opportunity of a dream stay just a stone’s throw from the sea and the mountains…
Just a stone’s throw from the sea
Le Ruisseau campsite lies 2.5 kilometres from the Basque coast and the centre of Bidart. It is a luxury campsite established in landscaped 18-hectare grounds with trees and flowers. On the property are two large lakes full of fish offering campers the ideal conditions for fishing whilst on holiday!
The property offers many camping pitches, allowing residents to enjoy large spaces to install a tent, a caravan or a camper. These pitches are all equipped with an electrical supply, a water connection and a drainage system. Some of these, considered as Premium, have a shed with garden furniture, sun loungers and a fridge.
This luxury campsite in the Basque Country also offers many rentals, including various Premium accommodation units, like La Kaz, a 2-floor chalet with one floor having a separate access (for families with teens!), or the Cottage Privilège Spa and the EcoLodge Spa, two holiday rentals equipped with their own whirlpool bath...
A perfect holiday to get fit
Although the campsite, the pitches and the Premium accommodation on the Le Ruisseau campsite contribute to the establishment being one of the most beautiful in the Basque Country, it moreover has numerous other advantages. These include its location a few minutes on foot from the beaches of Bidart, but above all its facilities and other leisure equipment.
This 5-star campsite of the Pyrenees Atlantiques offers indeed great facilities, including a water park of 1,100 m², with a swimming pool, a small pool, a playful paddling pool of 600 m² and several water slides. Opened in 2019, these incredible water slides offer new slide thrills: Giant, Kamikaze, Hydrotube, Spacebowl - names which will make thrill seekers dream...
This establishment brings together a recreational complex, with a multisports ground, rugby pitch, tennis court, pétanque ground, children’s playground, a mini-golf course, a mini-farm, a treetop adventure course and other facilities.
Finally, there is a very well-designed fitness area, consisting of a fun heated balneo course, a counter-current river, a spa, self-massage loungers, an indoor and heated pool, a sauna, a hammam, a fitness area and a massage salon!
Bidart, the charm of the Basque coast
Located in the Bidart hinterland, Le Ruisseau is an ideal base for discovering the Basque Country. Starting, of course, with the charming seaside resort of Bidart. It is, together with its neighbours Biarritz, Anglet, Bayonne, Saint Jean de Luz and Hendaya, one of the many jewels of the Basque Coast.
There are many beaches on this coast, such as that of Bidart, 2.5 km from the Le Ruisseau campsite. The coast is also famous for its surf spots, so famous that this discipline is today rooted in the local culture, like the Basque Pelota, a sport practised in all the villages of the region.
In the Basque Country, every village is worth a visit, even if it is true that some are prettier than others, such as Espelette, Sare or Ainhoa. While walking through the streets of these villages, tourists can take in the Basque identity, just like the pilgrims do when they come through the village of Saint Jean Pied de Port on their way to Santiago de Compostela.
If these villages make the charm of the Basque Country, the Pyrenees mountains are also responsible for this enchantment. The first peak of this massif is the mountain pass of la Rhune, which can be climbed using a tourist train from Sare, at some 20 km from the campsite. The top of this pass offers tourists a magnificent panorama on the Basque Coast, when they don't choose a misty day to get there!
