Domaine d’Esperbasque is located in a natural setting with lovely views over the foothills of the Pyrenees. With a tent, caravan or camper, everyone is welcome! The “luxury” campers can rent a Safari Tent for “Glamping” for a week or a weekend at Domaine d’Esperbasque.
Of course you can swim in the pool at the campsite, but everyone has heard about the high waves of the Atlantic coast (50km), and what about the fresh waters of the nearby rivers?
An extensive network of rivers (called ‘gaves’) makes this area extremely attractive, not only for fishermen, but also for swimmers! The water is clear and refreshing: it comes straight out of the Pyrenees.
A pleasant spot to swim in the river (Gave d’Oloron) can be found at Sauveterre de Béarn (7 km from the campsite).
It is possible to continue from Sauveterre towards Navarrenx, from where various farm roads give access to unique spots on the river, some shady, deep or shallow water (with or without rapids) and there are even rocks to leap from! Perfect to find yourself a private spot for skinny dipping!
