What you'll do

Too busy with the routines of your life? Curious to discover a magical place that can make you rediscover how your breath is more intense than anything? Leave your phone at home and get ready for a unique emotion ... ... I propose a unique ride to the summit of the highest dune in Europe to admire a unique panorama of the Arcachon Bay! The Dune of Pilat : 106.6 m high, 3 km long ... and under our feet, millions of m3 of fine sand and 40 centuries of history! welcome to heaven ! Once back down to earth, a traditional tasting of oysters is available to enjoy on request, accompanied by traditional local wine in one of my favorite and typical oyster farmers for only about €10. Reflections, stories, a bit of history and a lot of fun will drive our walk. Ready? I can speak in French, English or Italian:-)
