Arcachon birdwatching

More than 300,000 birds pass through the Teich Ornithological Reserve (on the Arcachon Bassin) each year, with 260 species recorded, from the little plover to the great white stork. For keen birdwatchers or complete beginners this is a great place to while away the afternoon.

lac hourtin, gironde

Lac Hourtin-Carcans

18km long, this is one of the largest freshwater lake in France; it’s so vast it’s like an inland sea.  Edged by pine trees, it’s the perfect place for walking and cycling.  There’s a lovely beach at Maubuisson and you’ll find a variety of watersports on offer around the lake.
