Vacation rentals in Lacanau

A holiday apartment on the Atlantic Ocean

The French municipality of Lacanau in the department of Gironde on the Atlantic coast is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts and therefore has a large number of holiday apartments. Most of the apartments are located in the cosy village centre within walking distance of the numerous cosy shops, cafés and restaurants as well as directly behind the dunes close to the beach. In addition to their central location, the cosy residential units are usually characterised by their modern furnishings and the green areas belonging to the property.

A vacation rental on the lake

A little further off the coastline, the picture is dominated by detached vacation rentals built in the typically compact architectural style of the region. If you are looking for an idyllic holiday home, the dreamy cottages around one of France's largest lakes, the Étang de Lacanau, will please you especially. An absolute highlight are vacation rentals in the traditional lake dwellings, which enable you to live on the lake and to recharge your batteries thanks to the picturesque view.

Things to know

Best travel time for Lacanau

Its location on the southern edge of the temperate zone in southwest France near the metropolis of Bordeaux gives Lacanau long, warm summers and very mild winters. The already subtropical-Mediterranean influence can be seen both in the annual average temperature of a good 18 degrees Celsius and in the approximately 2,000 hours of sunshine. With this value, the region around Lacanau in France occupies a top position. Not least because of the pleasant average temperatures of up to 26 degrees Celsius, a trip is particularly worthwhile in the summer months from June to September.

Regular events in Lacanau

The 4,500-strong village on the Atlantic coast became world famous mainly through the regular international surf competitions. With the Sooruz Lacanau Pro, one of the most famous and oldest surf events in Europe takes place every year in August just a few hundred meters from your holiday home. The nearby metropolis of Bordeaux also attracts visitors with other highlights such as the Jumping International in Bordeaux, a show jumping festival that attracts many thousands of visitors to the region every year in February.

Travelers and Activities

Lacanau for water sports enthusiasts

Thanks to the excellent waves and the sometimes strong wind, the coast off Lacanau is not only the scene of professional surf competitions, but also an ideal spot for hobby surfers. In addition to classic surfing, the waves of the Atlantic are also suitable for kitesurfing. If you want to take it a little easier, you can try your hand at the new trend sport Stand Up Paddling or paddle in a classic kayak through the idyll of the Étang de Lacanau and enjoy the chirping of the birds along the dreamy shores. You don't have to bring your own equipment, however, as you can get it near your vacation rental from one of the many rental companies.

Lacanau for families

If you want to travel with your family, Lacanau is the perfect place for a fulfilled holiday. The kilometre-long, extensive beach impresses with its fine sand and invites to build sand castles as well as to relax in a beach chair. Young and old horse lovers can also enjoy a wide range of riding excursions, during which you can discover the beauty of the dunes and the hinterland from the back of your horse in small groups. The offer is rounded off by the Parc Aquatique Aqualidays, which is only a few meters away from your vacation rental in the village.

Unbelievable but true - the place on the Atlantic was already considered a hot spot for surfers at the beginning of the 20th century.

Top 3 travel tips

Dunes near Lacanau.
Réserve Naturelle de l'Etang de Cousseau

The nature reserve Réserve Naturelle de l'Etang de Cousseau is situated a little north of Lacanau and connected to the Étang de Lacanau by a narrow channel. Surrounded by pine forests, green meadows and fairytale marshlands, you can relax and enjoy bird watching on one of the viewing platforms. As the park is only a few kilometres from your holiday home, it is an ideal destination for a family hike.

Dune du Pilat

Moving dunes are by far not only found in the desert. The best proof of this is the Dune de Pilat, which, with a length of 2.7 kilometres, a width of 500 metres and a height of over 110 metres, is the largest drifting dune in Europe. Located on the outskirts of the nearby town of Arcachon, this monster, estimated to have a volume of 60 million cubic metres, towers a good 40 metres above even the largest dunes in Lacanau.

Parc Aquatique Aqualidays

The cosy water park Parc Aquatique Aqualidays is located directly in the local area of Lacanau and differs from other water parks in particular by its family atmosphere. Situated in the middle of a pine grove, the park offers a number of slides for the little ones as well as spacious pools for relaxing hours under the French sun.
