New Wellness Holiday From Action Outdoors Stretches The Mind And Body, But Not The Bank

Action Outdoors has launched a brand new Surf and Yoga holiday at the UCPA Centre in Port d’Albret, France – located on the South West coast just north of Biarritz.

The all-inclusive package is priced at £620 per person, including 6 nights full-board accommodation, four surf instruction sessions, four yoga sessions, surfboard and wetsuit hire and evening entertainment. Guests sleep in bungalow style chalets scattered in the centres pine forest with rooms for up to four persons, although twin rooms are available.

Surf instruction is aimed at all levels, with groups for beginners to advanced levels available through the week at a ratio of 8 students to an instructor. Sessions are timed to help make the most out of the best surf conditions throughout the day.

General Manager of Action Outdoors, Tina Gale, said:

This is a great way to combine two different activities that complement each other to help develop strength, balance and well-being. The centre is ideally located ten minutes walk from the Atlantic Ocean on a stretch of coast that’s known to be one of the best surf spots in Europe. We’re really pleased to be able to offer a holiday like this for a sensible price, providing great value for money for a holiday that can end up costing far more.

Date: July 29, 2018 – 6 nights
Price: £620 (not including travel to Port d’Albret)

About The UCPA Port d’Albret

The centre is designed as a place to relax. Small bungalows nestle 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. Trapped between the coast and this lake, there is a natural tranquillity. The whole area is well maintained providing a beautiful well preserved environment for everyone who enjoys the outdoors.

Small bungalows each accommodate up to 185 people in rooms for 2, 3 or 4 people with washrooms and shower in each house. Double-rooms available (twin beds) for a supplement.
