Let children discover the recreation centres and the secrets of the Pilat Dune Grand Site ! We offer free entertainment from April to September.

Educational workshop : " Behind the scenes of the Pilat Dune "

Once upon a time the tallest dune in Europe, and an old bottle-shaped pine couldn't wait to give up their secrets. While opening these memory boxes one by one, you find the keys to discovering the Pilat dune Grand Site !

The children are invited to dress up, perform, and immerse themselves in the universe of the Pilat dune Grand Site. Not only will they get in touch with the landscape, fauna and flora, but also find out about the formation of the most visited site in Aquitaine. The objective is to address a variety of issues related to the Grand Sites, such as landscape preservation and the connection between the land and its inhabitants. This workshop is conducted by our representatives. They could accompany you to the top of the dune for a 'landscape reading', depending on their availability.
