Sport facilities on the park

Our Park offers two hard tennis courts, a volleyball court and soccer field on grass, a squash court, jeu de boule area and a running track. In the gym you can find Kettler equipment for a full work-out. Also available on our villa park is a wide selection of bicycles for rent for both adults and children. We also have children’s seats available. The surrounding area contains many beautiful dedicated cycle routes which run through the shadowy forests surrounding us. You can also take pleasant strolls through the woods or along the river, which is also used for fishing and canoeing.

Hiking

The forests in the surrounding area offer many possibilities for hiking. Predetermined routes are available at our reception.

Cycling

Our Park offers various types of bicycles for rent. In the Aquitaine a plan was developed for the building and upkeep of 2000 km of safe cycling routes, the largest part of which is already in place. The route running from Bazas to Biganos (80 km) runs right past our park. Many other routes are available, such as the route circling the Bassin d’Arcachon or the coastal route bordering the Atlantic Ocean. The local Tourist Information Center in Salles also offers a selection of cycling routes in the surrounding area.

Canoeing

Canoeing is a popular pastime on the river l’Eyre. Salles, at only 400m from our park, is often used as a starting point with kayaks and equipment for rent. Arrangements can be made for half or full day rentals, with pick-up; for example the route Salles – le Teich counting 19 km (4h30m) and the route Salles – Mios counting 9,5 km (2h30m). In case you own your own canoe you can enter the river directly from the Villa Park.

Golf

The surrounding area contains four golf courses. Located 25 km from Salles, Gujan Mestras offers a commercial Blue Green course. Golf Internationale d’Arcachon, at 34km, is a busy club course and the most beautiful course in the area. A less busy course is located in Biscarosse, at 37 km distance. You can play this course for a substantial discount if you are a member of Burggolf. This forested course is located among the dunes and therefore hilly. Last we have the second Blue Green course in Pessac at 38 km. Green fees range from €30 to €50 and placing a reservation through our reception gets you a discount. The Medoc, north of Bordeaux, also offers several beautiful courses, but be aware that green fees average around €80 in this area.

Surfing and sailing

The coastal region as well as the lakes boast many surfing- and sailing schools. The coast along the Gulf of Biscay can be considered the surfing Valhalla of Europe.

Horseback riding

In the vicinity you can find several stables, such as in MIOS. The forests of Les Landes are well suited to be explored on horseback, as is the area surrounding the river. Slightly further from the park, the beaches and dunes also offer tours and horse riding tracks for your enjoyment.

Paragliding

Dune du Pyla offers a beautiful and fascinating destination for paragliders. The wind conditions tend to be optimal, the countryside is unique and the temperature, in spring, summer as well as in the fall, is quite pleasant.

Kart racing

Biganos offers the most beautiful kart track in the vicinity. The track is 1100 m long and the circuit offers challenges for both inexperienced and experienced racers. 

Fishing

Sea fishing as well as freshwater fishing is possible within the region surrounding Salles. Crystal clear rivers, beautiful lakes and of course the ocean offer a wide variety of aquatic species, ranging from small to very large.
