WaveSisters invites you to join them in France this coming summer to enjoy the beach and the water. Relax on the long sandy beach of Carcans-Plage and enjoy the surf camp life under the pine-trees close to the dunes. Learn surfing and reenergize with reinvigorating yoga sessions. Taste the famous French cuisine and experience the lifestyle of "savoir vivre"!
You will be staying in modern wooden chalets right in the middle of a pine forest directly next to the dunes and the ocean. Rooms are either in shared double rooms or shared triple rooms. Single room is available for 100 EUR per person per week. However, single rooms are subject to availability and WaveSisters can only confirm it before your arrival date. For more information on single occupancy, please send an inquiry to WaveSisters.
The retreat schedule is flexible and may depend on the surfing conditions. Arrival and departure day is Saturday. The surf courses are starting on Sunday and run until Thursday. You can join independent surfing on Friday or do other activities that you like.
Carcans-Plage is located right next to the ocean, in the heart of the Medoc area. The small lovely village offers shopping facilities, restaurants, and bars for surfers and sunbathers. Apart from places to eat, drink, and socialize, Carcans-Plage also has a lot of quiet spots. The surrounding forest invites you to explore on foot or by bike. On the beach, you can walk for hours and will find less and fewer people.
Three kilometers further inland, you will get to the village Maubuisson. The village lies on the shores of a lake and has a Mediterranean flair with all its sailing boats and yachts. If you follow the coastline for 10 kilometers you will reach Lacanau, one of the most popular holiday destinations of the Medoc region. Lacanau offers nightlife, restaurants, bars, and shopping facilities.
On your free time, you can go surfing or have some stand-up paddle boarding session, have more yoga sessions, go biking or walk in the forest, explore the local surroundings, or just chill at the hammock.
