The Flying Pancake Médoc, Southwest France

Chambres d'Hotes en Saint Christoly de Médoc


When we are in the Médoc, we love to spend a lot of time outdoors, as the weather is usually very nice. This could mean a nice country side ride and explore villages we have never been, a walk through the vineyards, and of-course a visit to the beach. We think the beaches here are the best in Europe. They are wide sand beaches and the sea has beautiful waves, it is a surfers paradise.

Do not be surprised if you find WW2 bunkers on the beaches and in the dunes.

Take notice of the flags of the beach surveillance!

    Le Pin Sec

    This beach has very high dunes. It has a part where dogs are allowed, and a part where they are not.

    Montalivet les Bains

    Our favorite spot. Here you will find beach lovers, families, swimmers, surfers, body boarders and so on. Combine your beach visit with the great summer market, numerous shops, restaurants and cafés.

    You can also take surf lessons or take part in other organized sports activities.

    Le Gurp

    A charming and smaller beach, with some shops a little North from Montalivet.


    A smaller beach near a nice hotel restaurant Les Pins. South of Soulac sur Mer.

    Soulac sur Mer

    Soulac is a charming village, with many shops, restaurants a beautiful old church and some nice characteristic houses. Woth a visit!
