SUN, SURF & SUP

Averaging 8hrs of sunshine per day, water temperature in the mid 20s and waves for all levels, our guests never struggle to find the perfect conditions. The almost endless sandy beaches stretch as far as the eye can see down to the north coast of Spain. Get involved with group lessons to improve or head out with a qualified local guide. 5 minutes drive away you've got...

*Stand Up Paddle Boarding included in Retreat packages here (On France’s largest freshwater lake. Surrounded by dunes and pines.)

REST & RELAX

After a solid day at the beach, kick back at the Sanctuary ‘Glampsite'; in the shade of the big oak, on your private terrace or on any of the loungers, hammocks or sofas. Of course there’s the bar, pool table and plenty of other activities to help you unwind before another al-fresco feast.

EXPLORE VINEYARDS & BORDEAUX

If you fancy giving the muscles a rest, Sanctuary Surf has plenty to offer in addition to the beach. With France’s largest freshwater lake is only a 5-minutes drive away, Lonely Planet’s city of the year and UNESCO heritage site Bordeaux  is 1hr and we don’t forget the world’s most famous wine region, the Médoc on our doorstep.
