Camping Pipiou, Parentis-en-Born, Landes
The 3* Camping Pipiou is set in 15 acres of greenery in the heart of the Landes Forest, and this campsite has direct access to the lake and its beach - the Lac de Parentis. This campsite opens in late April until late September. Further down the page we list all the facilities at Camping Pipiou and also the best methods of getting there by train, plane and ferry.
Having direct access to the lakeside beach offers
opportunities for you to take a swim, relax or just potter about, or simply
indulge in the noble sport of sunbathing. Alternatively, you can get active
with one of the many watersports on offer such as pedalos, sailing and
kite surfing. If you’re into hiking, the forest nearby provides miles of trails
In fact the forest also provides masses of wildlife to spot and enjoy as well as the gorgeous little red squirrels which are always a sight for sore eyes.
The onsite well equipped pool complex is also at your disposal with a choice of swimming pools, children’s pool, water slides and Jacuzzi.
There is a children’s club in high season, which includes games, workshops, archery, rock-climbing and circus.
On-site facilities include bar, restaurant, snack bar, pizzeria, takeaway, shop and launderette.
If you are feeling bold then we recommend a visit to Biscarross Plage for some surfing because this coast is one of the best spots for surfing in Europe. If you are unable to surf then there are plenty of surf schools where you can learn, or buy a cheap body (belly) board and surf that way. It’s nearly as much fun!
Le Pipiou is a great base for exploring the beautiful region of Aquitaine and the Landes forest. Close to one million hectares with 40 lakes and ponds, it’s a paradise for nature lovers.
Bird spotters will be kept busy as the area is on the migration path of many species.
If you’re an active family there’s many activities within easy reach of the campsite, including horse riding, golf and canoeing. The nearby town of Parentis-en-Born is part of the coastal trail of Chemin de Saint Jacques de Compostelle.
Further South, Mimizan is one of the main resorts on the Landes coast with seven miles of pristine sandy beaches.
