About this location

The Aquitaine region

The Atlantic coast in South West France are the best kept secret holiday destinations of the French people and those in the know internationally. Why? Miles of sandy white beaches, hot sunny weather, a pilgrimage destination for foodies (Gastronomes) and wine lovers (Oenophiles), lower prices and avoiding the crowds, traffic and expense of the Mediterranean and Paris may be a start.

Enjoy incredible restaurants, shopping and a variety of hotels in a romantic cityscape that is reflected into the great Garonne River and bordered with 53 kilometres of bike trails. The international 'Bordeaux Merignac Airport' and a SNCF fast train to and from Paris will easily get you to what the French refer to as 'The capital of the good life'!

The wine regions of Bordeaux surround the city of Bordeaux. These include the world’s most famous wine regions such as St. Emillion, Pomerol, Graves, Médoc, Entnre-Deux-Mers, Cotes de Blaye, Bourg, and Bordeaux. Explore some of Bordeaux’s 9,300 vineyards within 30 minutes from the city. A must visit is the medieval village of St. Emillion, called "the hill with a thousand château". Also a UNESCO World Heritage Site, St. Emillion is recognized for its historical importance and its the world renowned wine. (

The Atlantic coast half an hour west of the city of Bordeaux, find the Cote D’Argent, Europe’s ‘s longest expanse of white sandy beach featuring Europe’s highest dune, 'Dune du Pyla' near Arcachon. Get ready for some of the most challenging surfing or just relax on the beach before fashion shopping or stopping off for a snack in the oyster capital of France, Cap Ferret, the Ile de Rey and Orleron. Other day trips will take you to the centre of Cognac, the most famous brandy region in the world, or to the lesser known eau de vie region of Armagnac. This is a spirit some believe more prized and complex than cognac.

Located in the southwest of France, the French love this region for its long hot summers and moderate winters. With its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, there are no temperature extremes. Summers are long, lasting from May until the beginning of October with average high temperatures equal to the French Riviera – averaging more than 26 degrees C in July and August. Temperatures in the high 20s and low 30s are common throughout the holiday months of June to September and October will still have many 20 plus degree days. (Source:


Our base in Biscarrosse is the perfect start to your road trip along The Côte d’Argent or, the Silver Coast. In Southwest France this is the coastline of the Aquitaine region stretching more than 200 km along the magnificent silvery sand beaches from the Gironde estuary in the north to as far south in France as Biarritz. Powerful rolling waves and miles of seascape draw families, celebrities, water lovers, surfers and wind surfers from all over the world. You’ll discover some of the best surfing beaches and surfing schools in Europe along this big sunny beach of crashing waves. (

Biscarrosse plage is a top holiday destination in it's own right with its big lakes and coast line provides amble camping spots and plenty of reason to enjoy being outdoors. Start your journey here and explore this plentiful region of surf, vineyards, cities and culture - in your own style with a classic vw camper van. 'C'est la belle vie'...

"Duur voor wat je in de plaats krijgt!"

De bus zag er langs buiten geweldig uit en de ervaring om ermee te rijden was ook geweldig en uniek.Jammer genoeg was het slapen en camperen met de bus iets minder. Wij hadden 'Vriginia' geh… More

Hello, Thank you for your feedback, I am glad you enjoyed your week. I am sorry Virginia was not satisfactory clean, this is not normal for us. I personally do everything I can possible to make sure the vans are ready for your trip. The curtains have since been washed and cleaned but yes they are quite "vintage" looking now. In August it is very busy and busy campsites with erratic electricity supply do cause problems for all camping cars, especially powering fridges when it is hot outside. Virginia will be getting a new fridge. Table leg is fixed. It is good to tell me what problems arise when you bring the bus back so we can fix them quickly. I am sorry you did not feel you could tell me these things at the time. I am sorry it rained during your week. It has been a strange summer this year, Yes the bed is restricted in Virginia, this is noted on the booking system. Water would not have leaked on any electrics, these are protected. However, an empty leisure battery will mean the 12v lighter and radio wouldn't work. Bedding packs for 2 persons consist of 2 pillows and a double sleeping bag. Any extra sheets or blankets in the van are provided complimentary on a discretionary basis or by request. Mainly early or late summer when it can be chilly and we ensure each bus has big blanket for beach/picnic or extra bedding warmth. Virginia is the split screen and the eldest van and we do not charge extra for her compared to the other van. We remain competitive if not better value for high season with other like for like companies in europe for this kind of vehicle. Thanks again for your valid points. Happy travels.
