The region

The Golf de Biscarrosse golf club is located in the heart of a region where diversity rhymes with nature and leisure activities. Stay at the golf course or at Biscarrosse Plage and discover a wide variety of landscapes and activities.

To the North, Arcachon and Bordeaux

20 km to the north is the French department of Gironde with unique panoramas of the Arcachon Basin, an inland sea connected to the Atlantic Ocean, as well as the Dune du Pyla, the ports, oyster-farming and fishing villages, and the Teich bird sanctuary (‘parc ornithologique du Teich’).
Visit the ‘Bassin’ by boat: the tour of ‘ile aux oiseaux’ (bird island), the Banc d’Arguin sandbar, Pyla, the Delta de la Leyre or sport fishing, scuba diving and skydiving.

Bordeaux, the capital of Aquitaine is less than an hour from Biscarrosse. It has exceptional cultural richness. Seven museums attest to this, from prehistory (Musée d’Aquitaine) to decorative arts (Musée des Arts Décoratifs), along with the Bordeaux “Musée du vin et du négoce” (Wine and Wine Merchants museum). Several music halls and theatres provide you with a variety of choices for the evening. Stop by the wine bars in the quartier Saint-Pierre or the antique dealers in the
quartier des Chartrons.
Savour regional specialities:
foie gras, tricandille (pork tripe), boletus mushrooms, grenier médocain (cooked pork meat), Pauillac lamb or Bordeaux cannelés (cakes) and Noisettine sweets from Médoc.
