Appreciating Nature's Beauty  31/07/2014
In our busy lives, it can be difficult to take the time to enjoy our surroundings, but a holiday offers the chance to enjoy a slower pace of life and appreciate nature’s beauty.
Our authentic lakeside campsite in Biscarrosse
is an ideal resort for people who appreciate natural beauty. The warm, clean waters of the lake are surrounded by gently sloping beaches of white sand and the area is surrounded by shady pine forests which are ideal for walking and cycle rides.
You can hire boats to get out onto the lake, or simply enjoy a refreshing swim in the water. Whilst this is a tranquil resort, the campsite is just four miles from the Atlantic coast, so a short journey to enjoy the thrill of riding the waves.
Bay of Arcachon
A drive up the coast will take you to the Bay of Arcachon, a natural inlet of water surrounded by a number of towns, each with their own character.
La Teste du Buch
La Teste du Buch is an area of natural heritage and includes the impressive Dune of Pilat, the Banc d’Arguin sandbank, Cazaux Lake and Birds Island. If you love natural attractions, then it is worth making the journey to this amazing area.
Le Teich is another natural wonder. Its habitat of water meadows and pine forests makes it a haven for birds. You can observe migrating flocks, as well as more permanent species in this bird sanctuary.
Giyan Mestras has a rich maritime history and you can still experience the traditions of boat building, fishing and oyster farming with a visit to this town. In addition to providing a look into the past, the town now offers modern entertainment including amusement parks, nightclubs, restaurants and a casino.
Arcachon town is an impressive coastal resort which has attracted French holiday makers for decades. It combines the natural delights of the bay with a stylish town full of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars.
Ever dreamed of taking to the air and seeing the world from a completely different perspective? With impressive views of the bay, beaches and inland countryside, Arcachon is the ideal place to take a journey into the sky. You can experience a spectacular bird’s eye view that is sure to leave you with fantastic holiday memories.
There are companies including ULM Evasion offering micro-light experiences, or Ocean Air and Freevol Parapente giving you the chance to try paragliding. You can take a tourist flight over the bay with Airwest or Aeroclub du Bassin d’Arcachon or jump out of a plane with a parachuting experience with Vertical t’Air or Ecole de Parachutisme.
Carisma holidays give you the opportunity to step out of the rat race and take pleasure from enjoying the wonders of nature.
