General

  • Family park over 19 hectares of oak and maritime pine forest
  • Within 20 minutes' drive of Europe's tallest sand dune, Dune du Pilat
  • Waterpark, mini farm, playgrounds, fitness area and bowling alleys

The tallest sand dune in Europe… you want to take a look at that, non? And viewing such a vision is easily done for those that forge a path to Domaine de La Forge, a spacious Gironde site 10 minutes' drive from La Teste-de-Buch.

Impressive as the huge Dune du Pilat is, it's not wildly welcoming for sunbathing, so it's handy to note that the site is also within easy reach of Arcachon's beaches. If it's a tad more activity you had in mind, a waterpark, a zoo and a couple of golf courses are also nearby.

Back at base, the site has 19 hectares of forest to potter around, with a fitness trail and an outdoor gym area for folk who fancy a workout among the trees. A volleyball court, tennis courts, multisports pitch and miniature golf provide more options for a bit of gentle (or otherwise) competition.

A highlight for many guests though is the splendid waterpark: the two heated pools (one round, one rectangular for the serious length-counters) are flanked by slides, an island, a lagoon and a Jacuzzi area. In summer, a restaurant-pizzeria opens up just next to the pool for eats with minimal disruption to watery proceedings. Entertainment including music nights and foodie evenings runs in high season.

If you fear losing the kids to the aquatic area for all time, entice them out by pointing out the playgrounds, the kids' and teens' club activities, or the chance to coo over cute ponies and goats at the mini farm.

Please note

The site only allows dogs up to 15kg.

The outdoor swimming pool is open between 15/04 and 15/09 (subject to weather conditions).

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Directions


Local attractions

So, that dune: that's the Dune du Pilat, 20 minutes' drive away. Its vital statistics are indeed impressive: 2.7 kilometres long, 500 metres wide and up to 110 metres tall. You can clamber up its soft sides if you're feeling strong-legged, but many suggest that trotting up the wooden staircase is preferable. What goes up must, of course, come down – if you're not rolling or running, you can swoosh down on a bodyboard.

For a more traditional beach day, take the 20-minute drive to Arcachon, which has a fab seven kilometres of sand. Those seeking watersports should take the half-hour drive to Étang de Cazaux et de Sanguinet, a huge freshwater lake with sailing, windsurfing, paddleboarding and canoeing as well as trails for biking or horse riding.

If you're in search of a kid-friendly day out, the big beasts at Zoo du Bassin d'Arcachon (10 minutes’ drive) may well prove popular. Those on tiddler-free travels might like to consider a round at either of the golf courses within 15 minutes, or a round of top tipples in Bordeaux (50 minutes).
