Sylvamar | One of the Leading Family Campsites in the South of France
With 2018 summer planning about to start, you might just want to bookmark this little gem in the south west tip of France at Camping Sylvamar. Situated in the unspoilt region of Landes, it’s one of the best we’ve seen in the south of France and a great option for all the family. So here’s why we reckon it’ll make it’s way straight into our ‘Top 50 Places to Stay in Europe‘ for 2018.
The low-key seaside village of Labenne is only few minutes’ walk away and Biarritz, a resort which has shed its Victorian seaside skin and been reborn as a trendy surfing destination, is just under 30mins drive. Best of all is the ultra chic San Sebastián is only just over the border in Spain.
But perhaps it’s the well thought out plots that really mark this out as one of the best sites in France.. It came as no surprise as this campsite is part of the Yelloh brand of campsites. A brand that always strikes us as a company that focuses on the ‘campers experience’. We’d seen this at Turiscampo (in Portugal) which is yet another that offers well thought out ideas that really help the camper. Just like this superb gazebos within the pitch that really provide a really useful outdoor space!
If you’ve headed to this side of the country, you might be like us. Irresistibly drawn to the coast, we love any opportunity to head out and catch some waves, body board or simply enjoy a day on the beach. And if that sounds like you, then you’ll not be disappointed by Camping Sylvamar. Easily reached by foot or by bike, the beach in Labenne offers a little of the north beach at Nazarre but take it from us, it’s absolutely perfect for families and patrolled by lifeguards too!
For those who like to spend their week’s holiday inside an all inclusive resort, this campsite won’t disappoint. There’s plenty to do, see and eat/drink here… but if you ventured outside the region, you can find amazing experiences like the one below at Dune du Pilat (near Arcachon some 2hrs north). Or the amazing array of horseback opportunities that are on offer in the Parc Naturel Regional des Landes de Gascoigne… (find more here)
