Copy of Untitled (10).png

3-5 nights

From £ 360/399 €*


We know it’s not always easy to get the time off work but you only need a couple days either side of a weekend and a 1h15 flight from London. Closer than Newquay and temperatures much higher too. The perfect getaway to get your dose of vitamin D and try surfing or stand up paddle (SUP). 5 minutes from the Glamping site you’ve got waves for beginner and intermediate surfers as well as the 30km long lake. Our team have the whole weekend organised to make sure you get the most of your precious time away. All you have to do is choose surfing or stand up paddle and we’ll do the rest.

Here’s an example of a 3-day itinerary for guests. We can create a bespoke itinerary on request so get in touch



Dash out of the office and get yourself to the airport in time for the evening flight to Bordeaux. Step outside the airport into a warm Bordeaux breeze where you’ll be greeted by one of the Sanctuary Surf team upon arrival. Jump in the van and enjoy a short cruise through the vineyards to Sanctuary Surf. Unpack and enjoy a late supper of charcuterie and cheese followed by a glass of Bordeaux’s finest. Hit the sack in your private lodging and drift off to the sound of silence….



Wake up to breakfast served on your private terrace ready for a full day ahead of you. Grab your beach bag and wetsuit as we’re hitting the beach for your morning surf session. Enjoy the waves and soak up the vibes on plage ‘Le Pin Sec’ and then jump in the surf bus as we cruise you back to Sanctuary Surf  HQ for lunch. Enjoy lunch served on the terrace and obviously the post lunch chill! Then it’s back to the beach for another surf or to the lake to try Stand Up Paddle Boarding SUP!. Head back to HQ where you can wash off that saltwater under a lovely hot shower and enjoy an aperitif. Dinner is served on our communal table where you can recount your tales of surfing legend! After, enjoy a night cap, board game or film on the projector before getting a good night’s rest.



Same as Friday – Why change a winning formula ? Although we can make it better… Post afternoon Apéro on the beach followed by dinner at a local beach side restaurant (Au Pin Sec & à l'Eau) with the best views in Naujac-sur-Mer. Watch the sunset disappear across the horizon over dinner before being ferried home by yours truly for a night cap and stargazing back at camp.


Day 4 (SUNDAY)

Wake up early then hit up the local gem that is Montalivet market – See how the locals do and enjoy some oysters and white wine while shopping for some locally crafted souvenirs to take back home. For lunch we'll head into the nearby pine forest that run along the beach for a cool picnic lunch and we’ll stay 'Monta' for our afternoon surf before whisking you back to the Sanctuary Surf to get freshened up before it is unfortunately time for you to head back home. Jump in the van and we’ll drop you off at the airport ready to take your late afternoon flight back to the real world!

Voila! Thanks guys. See you again next year ;-)
