Camping L’Arbre d’Or is situated amidst the forests of the Landes region between Biscarosse and Mimizan at a few km distance from the Atlantic Ocean. At a distance of 500 m you can find the lovely town centre of Parentis-en-Borne with its restaurants and shops. Most of the camping pitches on grass are shaded by large numbers of trees, but there are also some sunny pitches. On a separate section of the camping site are wooden chalets and luxury mobile homes. For water fun there are two heated swimming pools with toddler pool and jacuzzi.
Lots of comfort and facilities
L’Arbre d’Or is a typical family camping site for people with young children. The atmosphere is amicable and the grounds are neatly laid out. The mobile homes are on spacious sites with the necessary privacy, have a covered veranda and air conditioning. Handy for families with little ones; some bedrooms have room for an extra cot.
There is a camping shop with fresh produce and a bar/restaurant where you can buy rolls, pizzas and take-away dishes. Naturally, there is also a swimming pool, a playground, a multifunctional sports field and a television lounge. The contemporary and recently renovated sanitary building is fitted with showers, toilets, separate childrens' toilets, a baby area and a laundry with tumble dryers.
The Biscarrosse-Parentis lake is only a 5-minute walk away. You can do all kinds of water sports on this recreational lake, such as windsurfing, waterskiing, (catamaran)sailing, fishing and hydrojetting. Also fun: a boat trip or renting a water bike. The water sports centre (Aqua Loisirs), where you can hire all kinds of equipment, is just a stone's throw away from the camping site as is the sailing school. If you bring your own boat, you can use the mooring ring in the marina free of charge.

second stay of the year at this extremely friendly campsite. all I can say is the staff are friendly, toilets clean, pitches are decent sized with a great location for visiting the nearby sites. all in all great campsite.
Good site close to both a freshwater lake and the wonderful west coast beaches. Pitches are flat but not that large. Toilet and showers are a bit dated and require refreshing.
This evaluation has been obtained by our inspector from a questionnaire at the camp site.
We stayed at this site for 10 days in July and on the whole we enjoyed our stay, however there a few short comings for this site that people need to be aware of, firstly in the high season the disco music from the bar and restaurant starts at 0830 every evening and goes on until 1200 which is plainly audible all over the site, I take it that out of season this is not the case. also in July your swim in the two very nice pools will also be interrupted by by more zumba music every hour or so - Ok if you like zumba otherwise an unwanted intrusion. secondly you may well find your pitch some distance from electricity and water supply I suggest you have at least a 30M power cable.
thirdly the two very nice pools are too small in the high season and quickly become very crowded.
This site is very much at its best in the low season and I recommend it on that basis unless you like crowds and noise i would give it a miss in July and August.
Intended as an overnight stop enroute to Portugal, but stayed for 2, we are novice camping-caristes and so impressed we chose it for our overnight return stopover. Sanitation facilities were very clean, the pitches a good size and the site is an easy walk or cycle to the lake, village and Supermarket. One hour free wifi in the bar area was a bonus. We will definitely use this site again
We stayed here in low season (end of April) very few campers on. Staff are great and the site is lovely and peaceful. Only short trip into the village and a lake around the corner. Lovely site.
Lovely peaceful campsite out of season. Rarely more than 5/6 pitches being used. Some pitches a bit rustic but of a good size. Water was a longish trek from some pitches. Some pitches needed a French 2 pin plug others ok. Showers very good. Toilets okay. Pools were very good (indoors and outdoors. Great lake and beach just down the road (water sports). Shops and supermarket 1 km away. Brilliant cycle routes (flat) to other towns and lakes (Biscarosse about 50 minutes slow pedal). We were going to stay for 1 night but ended up staying for 5. Restaurant available for snacks/meals/bread and drink. Friendly owners. Liked this site.
Used as a stop over, but stayed 3 nights as it was so nice. Lovely setting, easy access, lake near by, easy cycle routes to shops etc. Would stay again.
This is a very pleasant and calm site at least in low season which is when we were there. Many large pitches and others of moderate size. This judgement is made on the basis of a large twin axle caravan. Just before we left they were planting 200 hedge trees to delineate the pitches.
The toilets are thoroughly cleaned every day by the owners in low season, to a very high standard, and the site is well maintained.
There are a number of privately owned mobile homes and some are rented, but these tend to be away from the touring pitches.
Site is close to a local restaurant and Parentis is also close by. There is a very pleasant walk to the large local lake where fishing is available.
Bread can be ordered daily and this is delivered to your pitch each morning, a very nice touch.
We were fortunate to have very good weather when we stayed and that together with the pleasant reception and service from the owners encouraged us to extend our stay from one week to three.
