Greetings from la Cigale


From April 30th we shall be happy to welcome you to our family campsite on the Bassin d’Arcachon for our 52nd season!

Following changes made in 2020, a new version of La Cigale will be available to you: Our 53 pitches are divided by shrubs and flowers.  They range from 110 to 160m² for tents, caravans and motorhomes. We also offer rental of wooden chalets and a mobile home on plots of circa 200m². Our guests can enjoy a heated swimming pool and paddling pool in an enclosed area and an open air bar and café.

At La Cigale you can enjoy your holiday in a pleasant, clean and secure environment.  Our camping site is perfectly suitable for children and adults looking for a calm, eco-friendly holiday.

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 is located 500m from the town centre, local shops and a weekly market and 3km from larger supermarkets.

A stone’s throw from safe cycle paths on the 1200km Route de Velodyssée” , 900m from the seafront on the Bassin side and less than 8km from the Atlantic. You will find more information in the Tourism Camping Bassin d’Arcachon section.

Please contact if you have any question, sending us an email at contact.lacigale@gmail.com or through the Contact section.

 À bientôt!
