La Jenny
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 29, 2009

You wont want to go to La jenny if you want to cover up. Its an enormous naturist site with nearly 1000 chalets generously spread through tens of hectares of pine forest. The chalets range from vast two story edifices to not much larger than Wendy houses. The resort is 'class' divided between the 'old' smaller chalets to the south closely packed and the to the north the large chalets with considerable space around them.

The chalets are nearly all privately owned but La Jenny reservations manages a centrally organised rental. Their service is excellent. We have always had a spotless chalet. They listen to preferences: near the golf, near the beach, away from noise etc etc.

In high season it is at least as expensive as a 'twee' cottage in the west country: not cheap. But out of the July August months bargains are to be had. The on-site supermarket has a good range and the prices are barely above the local hypermarket about 10kms south. The restaurants try hard and we have eaten well in the off season, less so in high season. The children's clubs are largely French speaking focused but English speaking groups do get created

La Jenny is into tennis with about 20 courts and some are in very good condition. The pools are enormous, heated and very well policed.

The main disadvantage is that without a car you are stuck. 5 kilometres north is the little village of Porge Ocean (not naturist) but its also largely a camp site and a few houses. South you have miles and miles of empty beaches. Arcachon Bay and Liege are about 10 kms away and there are good places to eat there.

Naturism is La Jenny is 'obligatoire' in the pools and on the beach and is normal in reasonably warm weather. The beach patrol is excellent and you must comply with their instructions. The undertows can be dangerous. On the Atlantic coast you will always get 'off days' and then the woollies come out .

This is an International resort. Its 30% French, 10% Belgian, 20% Dutch, 20% German and the rest includes the Brits and everyone else. English is understood (usually) and the reception staff are usually tri-lingual.

La Jenny is an escape - Set in acres and acres of pine forest you can get back to nature in every sense of the word.

It's completely on its own, a long way from anywhere, making a car quite essential to get there, but once you're there, you really don't need to leave.

Whilst there are a lot of residences here, there is so much space that you never feel crowded. The bungalows are all set apart from each other and the only noise is the birds and the sea.

A great beach, fun cycle paths that stretch for miles and plenty to entertain you around the resort as well as a supermarket, fish monger and choice of restaurants mean you have everything you need.

We were towards the end of the season so some of the facilities weren't open which did leave the meal choices a little limited, but it didn't detract from what was a great stay.

Naturism is practiced from morning to night, with most people dressing for dinner albeit if you wanted to, you could leave clothes behind for the whole week.

A very mixed crowd from young families to people in their eighties, this was a holiday of great rest and relaxation.
