Family Surf Camp Resort France
Family surf camp in France for adventurous families that like great accommodation, healthy food, and loads of activities. We are located on the French Atlantic coast in the heart of the best vineyards in the world.
The large area surrounded by pine trees is best suited for families, couples, and 25+ individuals seeking more comfort for themselves on the one hand and a pristine nature filling on the other. The resort area is 800 m away from the sea and about the same distance from the town of Montalivet. The small, charming town is filled with the local market, bars, surf shops, and restaurants. Neighboring our camp are other surf or yoga camps. The whole area of the Pine beach resort is equipped with bathrooms, showers, a volleyball court, etc.
Our best surf coaches deliver surf lessons. We will present surfing, waves, and the ocean to you and your children: you will learn everything about equipment, water movement, standing on a surfboard, and the power of the ocean. Once you catch your first wave, you are hooked for life.
Surf school runs four times per week. The afternoons re reserved for free surfing, we bring surfboards to the beach.
We are a Family surf camp, and we customize your holidays to get the most out of the surf experience for your needs. Surfing is not only something we do for fun or work, but it is also 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 of whether you are a complete beginner or have already carved 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 surfing theory and, most importantly, spend a lot of time in the Atlantic ocean.
Active Family Holidays
Yoga, as a way of life, is an essential part of what we do and are. We are dedicated to the core of what we perceive yoga truly is – a potent tool that helps you to unchain from the mental activities that rather cause you more stress than happiness and stillness of your mind. Our practice is held in the mornings or evenings. The main aim is to physically and mentally prepare you for surfing classes and relax after them.
Our classes combine Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, and Yin yoga practices, and we adapt each class to your need. Our yoga teacher has 15 years of experience in practicing different styles of yoga, has the RYS 500 yoga alliance certificate, and is constantly developing her own teaching techniques but also learning from other world’s best-known teachers (Janet Stone, Shiva Rea, David Swenson, Simon Park, …) by attending different workshops. We strive to help you individualize your own yoga practice so you will feel completely safe yet empowered to release your body from any tension or, on the other hand, become able to strengthen your body and maximize your everyday movement performance.
Classes are available for everyone – complete beginners to those who already practice yoga daily, women, men, and children (from 10+ years). Before the first class, we get to know each other better to see what kind of practice you really need in terms of your physical state and your expectations in general. Then, we set the exact time of the classes one day before.
We organize a surf kindergarten for children 2 – 6 years old during surf school. Therefore parents have peace of mind while surfing, enjoying easy beach life, having a glass of a great Bordeaux wine, practicing yoga or fitness, going for a run, or just having some simple spare time for themselves. We set the kindergarten schedule and tailor it to the surf group’s needs on the first day when you come to our camp.
We are the Family resort and love to see children running and playing around. The whole place is one big playground, as of the sand surrounding it. Kids love the place and are happy to find new summer friends. Our kindergarten is taken care of by our amazing, trained professionals. Our main goal is to provide preschool children (not attending the surfing school) the chance to learn new skills and to socialize with other children.
Children are connected through the group and stay inside the resort, so it’s taken good care of their safety. If any other activity out of our resort (going to the beach, …) is planned, we consult with you, and together we decide if & how we make this happen. There are two age groups, so we adapt the activities to the age of your children. If you have any special needs regarding your children, let us know in advance, so we have time to discuss those needs.
The last week in June, we have our therapist on-site and organize adaptive surfing surf school. The surf school is suitable for all children or children at heart with congenital or acquired conditions such as:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Acquired brain injury
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Autism Spectre Disorder
Including their carers and friends.
Activities include one hour of physical therapy daily and adapted surfing lessons to ensure rehabilitation is as fun as possible.
The positive influence of surfing on autism is also well documented.
If you have any questions regarding the rehabilitation part or whether the camp suits you or your child, please contact us.

Questions? Please fill in the form below.
1. Do you offer childcare on-site?
We offer childcare for those children who are not attending the surf course. As a result, parents have their own surf classes. This service is included in the price and runs for four days for about 4 hours. This is cost-free. Childcare at any other time and for other reasons is possible, but additional costs apply. Please get in touch with us if you are considering extra childcare, and we will help you arrange it onsite with our nannies.
3. How do you accommodate us?
In our Family surf camp, we offer accommodation in cozy and modernly equipped TIPI tent accommodation: one double bed with all the bed linen & a set of furniture is included. We can put two extra single beds in one TIPI so the whole family can sleep together if preferred. If you need a baby crib, we offer it for free. We can put you in one big and one small tipi, so the kids sleep in a small tipi.
