Enjoy surf, many activities and fun experiences
Our family surf camp is located near Bordeaux and San Sebastian in the Basque Country in southwestern France. Geographically, the surf camp is located at the beginning of a coniferous forest just 700 meters from the beach – the coniferous forest provides a good opportunity for shade in the middle of the day and protection from the wind.
We really appreciate living close to nature and have equipped ourselves with modern tipi tents. In addition to surfing during the week we have arranged children’s movie night, karaoke, water slide, beach fun and a lot of other activities. Our surf camp can be something very special and we believe that it is the way we live that makes our surf community even stronger. Whether the kids get caught up in surfing or not, they will definitely have a great experience and meet many new friends.
As a starting point, we recommend that you must be at least 7 years old to be able to participate in surfing lessons.

Montalivet is a cozy beach town in southwestern France. The area is known for its beautiful conifers, long sandy beaches and of course their delicious wines. Our Surf camp is located just 700 meters from the beach, between conifers, which provide both protection from wind and sun during the hot summer months.
The town has several cozy restaurants, cafes, an amusement park and a local food market that you can visit on weekends.
Montalivet is only 80 km from Bordeaux, 240 km from Nantes, 250 km from Biarritz, 330 km from Toulouse.
The minimalist, modernly decorated Tipi tents are fully equipped and contain everything you need. A Tipi tent can accommodate up to 4 people. There is usually a double bed and up to 2 single beds for children. In addition, there is some smaller furniture and wardrobe for clothes storage. If you are a bigger family, you can rent a smaller Tipi located next door.
The camp is equipped with bathrooms, showers, kitchens, volleyball courts, etc.
In short: An absolutely fantastic experience for the whole family!
We chose to drive the trip to Montalivet ourselves, with stops in Germany, Belgium and France along the way. When we got down to the camp we got accommodation in the fantastic tipi tents and we immediately rested down in the cozy surroundings.
It was the first time we went on a surfing trip as a family, with a 4-year-old, and we were a little worried about whether we would also get a holiday from it. But luckily the camp was filled with other families and the atmosphere was super nice. So it was not long before we hung out on the beach together and had fun in the evening. Here the kitchen and restaurant are well known and famous. In addition to the 3 meals, there was always the opportunity for a healthy snack and water (and ice + beer in the freezer).
The surfing lessons were really good for us as beginners and the waves were not too big, so we learned the basic surfing tricks. We could also take our daughter to the beach and play, as neither the current nor the waves were too hard.
In addition, there were many opportunities for adventure in the immediate area. Soulac-sur-Mer is recommended here.
A total of 5 big stars from here!
Freeride / Catskiing in Georgia is brilliant. The place is remote = only skiers with whom you share the snowmobile and the cottage. The snow, the guides and the tours were super cool with both wide views and good skiing.
The food was above expectation. The cozy cottage is world class. The room and toilet conditions are also above all expectations when you consider how remote the place is, and the saunagus is brilliant after a long day of skiing.
I went with my family last year to DBP Adventures family surf camp in Montalivet. A great experience that I would very much like to recommend to others. Our children are 3, 6, 8 and 10 years old and they enjoyed themselves throughout the whole trip. We will definitely be traveling again very soon!

Had a fantastic family trip to Montalivet in France with our children aged 6-10 years. Cheap flights to Bordeaux where we rented a car – we can recommend renting a car as there are many small gems in the area within driving distance for day trips, including climbing park, Grande Dune du Pilat, wineries etc.
Life at the camp is super cozy and relaxed. With shared food, a “trust bar”, board games, etc., both children and adults quickly made new friends and played / socialized in all generations.
As non-classic camping types, we were very pleasantly surprised by the tipi tents with shelves for clothes, chairs, tables and real beds!
Montalivet itself is a 10-minute walk from the camp and houses many small restaurants and markets, if the otherwise good food in the camp is to be supplemented.
The days flew by with surfing in the morning and evening, the coziness of the camp and day trips. The days ended with an evening session in good company on the beach.
We ended the trip with a few days in Biscarosse after the camp – can also be recommended!
5 star trip !!! We are coming back!
