We also offer rental of wooden chalets and a mobile home on plots of circa 200m². Our guests can enjoy a heated swimming pool in an enclosed area and an open air bar.

Our “Camping Nature” is located in Arès , a small village ideally overlooking the beaches of the Bassin d’Arcachon and the forest, halfway between Cap-Ferret and Arcachon .

La Cigale 500m away from the town centre, local shops and a weekly market and 3km from larger supermarkets.
