The Owner Says
These wooden gypsy caravans include an indoor living/dining area, with a fully equipped kitchenette including a gas stove, sink, microwave, fridge and coffee maker together with a variety of crockery and utensils. There is a private shower room with a shower and toilet. The bedrooms are set out as one double bedroom and one other bedroom with a bunk bed. Please bring your own bedding or hire these as an additional extra. Outside there is a wooden picnic table with a parasol making it the perfect setting for al fresco dining any time of the day, and 2 deck chairs to relax in post lunch for a little snooze.
On site there is plenty to do from the swimming pool, volley ball pitch to petanque and table tennis. There is a kids playground, and in the summer a Kids Club arranges all sorts of crafts and activities to keep the little ones entertained, including open-air cinema nights and magic shows (high season).
There is a river which runs alongside the campsite – if you have your own kayak or canoe you can even canoe all the way to the ocean! (boat hire is not available on site as yet).
The beach is about a 40 minute bike ride away (bikes & child seats are available to hire from reception), definitely worth the ride, as once you arrive you are welcomed with huge white sandy beaches and beautiful ocean waves.
After all that effort and back at camp, enjoy a homemade pizza from the pizza-grill on site restaurant (July & August), either eating al fresco on the wooden decking area or taking it back to your pitch.
Order your baguette and pastries the night before so you can look forward to a tasty breakfast the next morning!
There is a small shop on site with all of the basics, but for greater choice and bank facilities these can be found just 6km away from the campsite.
The Landes is a beautiful area with a wealth of towns to visit from Seignosse to Hossegor (famous for its surfing), or Dax with its annual Feria (early August), where red berets and foulards are a must!
About Huttopia Landes Sud
Tents, campervans, motorhomes, caravans, families, groups, couples, pets… everyone!
NearbyAsk at reception for information on the Vélodyssée cycle paths. They lead from the campsite through the forest to Lake Léon (5km) or further to the coast (15km), connecting Seignosse and Hossegor, both with excllent beaches. The villages of Messanges and Vieux-Boucau are also easily reached by bike. Don't miss the chance to go down the river with a boatman (enquire at reception) taking in the Courant d'Huchet Nature Reserve as you go – known as the "Little Amazonia of the Landes". The river mouth, which opens out onto Moliets beach, is an ideal place to swim.
Food & DrinkThe bar-restaurant onside serves excellent homemade pizzas, along with other snacks and drinks. It's only open over the May public holidays and through July and August. There's a small grocery store for any essentials you've forgotten and a fresh bread service – order your bread and pastries the night before at reception. Locally, seek out the regional specialities: Asparagus mousseline, Landes salad with foie gras, apple tourtière with Armagnac flambé and the love/hate drink Landes pastis – served with water so that you can dilute to your taste. Local wines to look out for are Tursan, Côteaux de Chalosse, and the vins des sables.
