FAMILY SUMMER SURF CAMP

With being aware of how important having a great family time is, we are more than happy to welcome each and every member of your family to come and experience the best-for-all vacation ever!

 

Whole family can enjoy summer activities by and in the ocean in a relaxed atmosphere. Surfing classes are shaped differently for children and parents but share the same mission – learn how to move on a surfboard.  In order to ensure safety, only children 7+ years that know how to swim can participate in a class.  Parents are in different groups than children, which provides a better learning process for both.

 

For all children that are under 7 years, we organise a surf kinder garden, so parents have a peace of mind while surfing, enjoying easy beach life, having a glass of a great Bordeaux wine, practicing yoga, going for a run or just having some simple spare time for themselves. We set the kinder garden schedule and tailor it to the group needs on the first day when you come to our camp.

 

The long sandy beaches of Montalivet are amazing whether you are surfing or just enjoying the summer days on the beach. We have plenty of other activities available in the program if you wish to add them to the regular schedule of surf classes. For children, there is a great amusement park nearby the camp, pony riding through out the camp, bike trips around the town are much fun for everyone that like to be on a go for a new adventure and much more.

Montalivet and the whole Medoc area is great for french food and wine tastings, so you can wander and explore the area to satisfy your taste sensations. We can also organize wine tasting trips in this area – they are seriously – a blast! For more vacation highlights, you can take an about one hour train ride or rent a car and visit the city of Bordeaux with its bustling day&night life, wine museum, shopping districts, etc.

 

The setting of a camp is best suited for families, couples and 25+ individuals who are seeking more comfort for themselves. The modernly decorated TIPI tents are fully equipped with simple yet comfortable sleeping (1 double sized bed & up to 1 cot/2 single beds for children) and living (small furniture, wardrobe, …) facilities. One TIPI tent accomodates to up to 4 people.

Bathrooms and kitchen area are no matter which tent you choose – shared.

We are all food lovers and prefer to cook and prepare home-made meals with mostly locally produced, organic food. We tend to include fiber and protein rich food, with lots of veggies and seafood.

As there is always something you still might want to know (and we could forgot to write about), please feel free to drop us a line.

   
Our Montalivet camp with its TIPI  tents village is one of a kind in terms of camping experience and will definitely take you back to the childhood! Tipi tents are standing on wooden floor, fully equipped with one queen sized bed, small furniture, lightning and a great feel of being in touch with nature at its most. They are modernly designed and provide just as much intimacy you need to feel perfectly cozy and relaxed. They are made out of environmentally friendly, breathable, water proof yet light materials and have a modern feel. They accommodate to up to 4 people. Bathrooms are located out of each tent - are shared, clean and spacious. We also provide one extra baby cot per one TIPI (for free) and up to two single beds per one TIPI, so please give us a note about your needs and we will find a way to help you out.
     
We customise your holidays in a way you get the most out of the surf experience for your needs. Surfing is not only something we do for fun or work, it is our way of life and we are here to introduce you to how to live surf life from the inside out. Our Surfing school has two important goals performance and personal satisfaction. Our licensed surf coaches will adapt to your level regardless if you are a complete beginner or you already carve the waves. Safety is taken very seriously and all our instructors have a valid surf license and lifeguard course. With our surf coaches, you will first learn the surfing’s theory and, most importantly, spend a lot of time in the Atlantic ocean.
     
Some activities: RENT A LONGBOARD: Longboarding is a sport with growing popularity. Cruise by the ocean and feel the breeze. Longboards and surf boards go hand in hand. YOGA CLASSES: We offer daily yoga classes (morning or evening - depending on the surf classes), which are tailored made for all those who are experiencing muscle tensions and feel stiffness in the area of spine. Focusing on controlling the breath and understanding how body balance is established. Yoga practice is a Vinyasa flow practice - an active yet relaxing practice. We believe yoga practice is crucial for a better surfing performance. MOVIE NIGHTS: On summer evenings we are enjoying watching movies. Sit back and cozy up to our favorite surf movie. On sofas, under the stars without overpriced snacks and admission fees. CAMP PARTIES: Unforgettable "in house" parties after sunset surf sessions. Parties are part of a surfing lifestyle. We are big fans of spontaneous afternoon parties around our place but never organise heavy parties as we prefer a laid back and peaceful atmosphere. KARAOKE: Hilarious karaoke party after BBQ (and way too much sangria) should definitely be on your bucket list. It is a great way to bond with our surf family. BBQ NIGHTS: Bonding with your friends, family or your partners on a summer evening by the fire is always a special experience. Grilling some fish and veggies, have a beer or two and talking about todays surfing adventures. SIGHTSEEING TRIPS & WINE TASTING TOURS: Great public transportations offer connections to several touristic hotspots in region. Foodies and wine enthusiasts will enjoy heavenly food in the whole region of Medoc and especially Bordeaux-the capital of WINE. Under request, we organise wine tours, customised to your wishes. HORSEBACK RIDING: Under request we organise horseback riding along the beach or around the camp area. To see one of the shiniest sunsets on the beach, on the horseback is simply unforgettable. Great for families with kids.

How to get to our camp? If you are flying to the region, the best way is to fly to Bordeaux (there are direct flights from Venice and some other major airports in Europe) and from there its only an hour of a car drive to Montalivet les Bains, where our camp is. We offer a van pick from (or drop off) the airport for 60 EUR. There are also other great options such as flying to Paris and then going to Bordeaux with a direct, fast going train. The French have renewed the train connection from Paris-Bordeaux and its just great. We offer a pick up (or drop off) from the train station too. If you are coming with a car or camper van, contact us to advise you for the best road trip option.

FAQ

We are a big family, with 4 children, how can you accommodate us?

We can accommodate any kind of family, but have to be aware that one accommodation unit serves to up to 4 people. For larger families, we can offer two accommodation units side by side. Please talk to us in advance, so we can reassure you the best place as possible in a camp.

Do you offer childcare on site?

We don’t specifically offer childcare, but can arrange it during the time you would like. We offer childcare for those children who are not attending surf course in between time, parents have their own surf classes. This is cost free. Childcare at any other time and for any other reasons is possible, but additional costs apply. Please contact us if you are thinking about extra childcare and we help you arrange it onsite with our nannies.

Do you provide any Family discounts for larger families?

Yes, we have some discounts for families from up to 5 people in a Family and we offer discounts for family members (small children under 6,…) who are not surfing. Please contact us for more details.
