I know there's a site at Les Lacs - pretty close to the city. But no idea what it's like, we've never stopped there.


Les Lacs is an Acsi site, very popular as a one night stop-over for those travelling south (or north).


It has a bus stop outside to the City with a fairly regular service. Shop is closed in low season but restaurant on site (possibly only weekends in low season). Lots of holiday chalets on site but touring area quite large.

There are two sites in the CC Caravan Europe book ............


Camping Le Village du Lac Bordeaux 44.89701 -0.58317 which is about 7km to the north




Camping Beau Soleil 44.75529 -0.62772 which is about 4km to the south and described as having a bus / tram within 250 metres.

Thanks for that fancy the second as also mentioned by Brian....still intrigued with les lac????


Les Lac is the camping village du Lac as mentioned above. Quite a pleasant site although tends to get busy at weekends with the chalet brigade.

You might want to avoid Bordeaux between 11th June and 2nd July as the Stade de Bordeaux are hosting some of the Euro 2016 football matches. We will be going there as we have tickets for one of the matches


Very wise. The ring road can be a bit like the M25 at rush hour. Took us 1 hr last time to do a 10 min journey

Yes it is the Village du Lac in ACSI Book

We have stayed at "Les Lacs" on several occasions on our way down south. There is a bus stop outside the site, indeed the site reception have to call the bus company to tell the bus to stop and how many passengers there are. The bus then goes round the houses a bit before depositing you at an interchange where you catch a tram which then takes you into the centre of Bordeaux, wherre you can change onto any of the other tram lines. It's a bit confusing but quite fun. I seem to recall that the tickets cost 1.50E for an hour's travelling.


There is free wifi on the site.


We found Bordeaux to be very expensive when we last visited a couple of years ago, and the cathedral was closed for renovation, so if that's of interest suggest you check beforehand.

Enjoy your trip
