General

  • Family-friendly site in the Landes department
  • Swimming pool, paddling pool, play area, kids' club and restaurant bar
  • Minutes away from the beaches of Aquitaine and near Lake Aureilhan

Forest, river, lake and beaut sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast – if you like your landscapes, the Landes department's La Clairière is un bon place to be.

The site is set right in the Landes forest, only a few minutes from the sands and sea of the Atlantic, near the watersports and splendid scenery of Lake Aureilhan. It also stretches over three and a half scenic hectares bordered by a river – it's pretty much a given you'll find a fair bit to see and do in the area here…

A fair bit to see and do for all sizes is on site too, including a big outdoor pool, a mini golf course, a pétanque court, a volleyball court and ping pong tables alongside a paddling pool and large well-equipped play area for les enfants.

A kids' club runs in high season as well as family evening entertainment including karaoke, concerts and theme nights at the spacious bar and restaurant. Wifi is available on site for an extra charge.

La Clairière also has bike hire: just the ticket for pedalling off towards the coast or along the many trails encircling Lake Aureilhan.

good location but cramped and too few electric points for the site.08/11/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Electric grass pitch (comfort)

  • Liked: 

    woodland walks, pool, amenities, shower/toilet facilities. Wonderful for woodland walks straight out of the front gate. Good facilities and good activities provided.

    Disliked: 

    Cramped and overcrowded pitches right on top of each other with little or no separation between some pitches. Too few electric boxes mean you may need a 30m extension to get to electricity. When challenged the staff offered a household multi-plug extension for 3 people to plug into. However the electric boxes are standard round campsite plugs. When asked for an adapter from round 3 pin to french household plug we were told to buy one in the shop.

  • Liked: 

    The welcome and hospitality was superb from beginning to end. We were allowed to choose one of six pitches, all of them lovely. The pool and bar were super and the restaurant is worth a visit although it was only open for two hours in the evening.

    Disliked: 

    The sand on some of the pitches made it challenging to park up.

From the manager...

thank you very much for your comment. It is a fact that in septembre it's difficult to maintain all services open all day long. We might try next year to open also during the day with a small breack in the afternoon.
see you soon

    Pool, bar, restaurant, food and staff.
    Staff were very pleasant and worked hard.
    Reception staff were particularly helpful.
    Security access arrangements.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets needed more attention. Campers were not good at tidying or cleaning after use.
    Pitch maintenance could be improved.
    Dusty access road was annoying.
    Motorhome service area needs levelled. Drained waste was not taken away and neighbours were upset.
    Wi-Fi was expensive so we didn't use it.

From the manager...

hello
we are pleased to read that you enjoyed your stay. As for the minor improvements , we faced this year major difficulties with our cleaning staff, we will make sure next year it will be better. The road is a major problem as for the dust then for the children's security.;people drive to fast, that's why we created some bumpers, apparently it's not enough, we will make some other during the winter.
It is also planned to rebuild the motorhome area and the wi-fi will be free next year
best regards
sebastien

Directions


Local attractions

On land, on water, by foot, pedal or hoof… a heap of outdoorsy options is around La Clairière: Landes is fairly well known for its horse riding, hiking and cycling, so get stuck into one, two or all three at countryside or coast.

Lake Aureilhan is also a well known spot for active days out in this part of the Landes: make your way here for watery sports like paddleboarding, swimming, rowing, canoeing, pedal boating and taking out a Hawaiian pirogue canoe, or for casting off for fishy specimens such as carp, pike, perch and eel. The trails around the lake are fine places to take your wheels or feet for scenic afternoons.

For indoor and/or cultural days, the nearby Prieuré Museum is filled with medieval arty bits including fifteenth century mural paintings, or, a bit further away, you could cross the border into Spain for a day in San Sebastián, a European City of Culture for 2016.
