The town centre is buzzing with cafés, bars, restaurants and shops. There are nearby trails and its 60-hectare marine lake, in the middle of which there is a wooded island, home to many species of birds, forest walks and horse riding is available along the beach. 

The centre is made up of small bungalows nestled amongst pine trees, providing a perfect chill out zone after a day chasing the waves. Each has a private terrace hidden in the pine forest, and nearby hammocks, a swimming pool and, just steps away, a fine sandy beach at the edge of the lake. 

Located on the beach at the very south of the Landes coast, close to Hossegor and Biarritz, Port d’Albret offers ideal conditions for sports and relaxation, close to the saltwater lake and the ocean.

All UCPA meals are buffet style and with multiple servings the norm; you won't go hungry.

Breakfast is normally yogurts, cereals, fruit juice, coffee and bread - don't be surprised to see that the coffee and tea is taken in a bowl!

It is possible to return to the centre for lunch everyday where you will find 1 or 2 hot options available. As with all meals there will be a salad bar, plenty of bread, cheese, meat and of course desert. If you prefer you can make a packed lunch at breakfast time and eat on the mountain. Either way you will save a fortune avoiding the piste side restaurants.

Dinner is a 3/4 course buffet - typically a salad bar style starter, a choice of 3 hot main courses, a cheese and cold meat platter and ice cream/dessert.

Due to the cost focussed nature of UCPA and the wide range of dietary requirements, it is impossible to accommodate everyone as standard. If you have any severe dietary requirements please contact the centre two weeks before to let them know. Generally speaking vegetarians will find plenty of options, with vegan options being a little more scarce but improving year on year.
