Our campsite is on a human scale, not too big, not too small
Welcome, friendliness, quality, cleanliness and comfort are for us essential for your stay in Soulac-sur-Mer.
Passionate about our region, we will share with you the must-see sites to visit. As our campsite is located near the ocean, you will find long stretches of beach punctuated by spots with breaking waves, seducing surfing lovers.
If nature can sometimes be wild, the Médoc reveals a multitude of surprises and treasures. Overflowing with natural beauties, almost wild and wonderfully well preserved, one never really finishes discovering this destination! Without necessarily having to go off the beaten track, let yourself be told about the Medoc flora and fauna or the region through its walks and its tours. Discover the Richard lighthouse, the Cordouan lighthouse, the citadel of Blaye, the islands of Patiras, the market of flavours, the circuit of Soulac villas.
Soulac is a seaside resort, where life is good. It is dotted with villas and bourgeois “Atlantic” style buildings built between 1890 and 1920. A real refuge for nature lovers. You can taste the oysters and Grands Crus of the Médoc, artisanal ice creams, gourmet pastries and many other specialities to be found at the daily market.

Our team: a family history
Brothers Nicolas and Ollivier Maridat have owned the Paradis des Pins Soulac**** campsite since 2007. But the outdoor hotel business is well and truly in the family DNA since this campsite previously belonged to their parents, Maryse and Bernard, who bought it as a fallow land in 1986.
As children, Nicolas and Ollivier lived between Angoulême and Soulac at the same pace as their parents and the campsite, already lending them a hand. Coming from the quality branch in the oenological viticulture field for Nicolas and the sign management for Ollivier, they decided to take over the family business in parallel with their respective jobs.
The return to the roots was quickly imposed for Nicolas with the desire to work in harmony with nature. His brother Ollivier followed him in the adventure and, together, they took over the family campsite where they have been working for a few years on the harmonisation and innovation of the site with their respective wives. Juliana, Nicolas’ wife is in communication, the web and the event on her own and Sandrine, Ollivier’s wife is a visual artist, sculptor, and painting restorer, self-employed Art expert.
Our team : Les Frères Nicoll’s
The 4 of them thus decided to create a common project on the site by combining their skills, the creative space “Les Frères Nicoll’s”.
At the same time bar/restaurant, coworking, creative (Art exhibitions & concerts), privatizations & Concept Store, this sharing place is a real place of conviviality in the heart of nature.
This place with beach culture connotation brings a real added value to make the Paradis des Pins Soulac**** campsite a campsite connected to the nature and modern.
Our team : authentic and friendly
This site is a family affair as it is very involved by all its members as you could understand, especially with Nicolas and Ollivier’s mother, Maryse, still active in the business, but also with the older of the grandchildren who come to help when needed.
The team is essential at the Paradis des Pins Soulac campsite, there are three employees all year round with key positions : Christine, the reception manager, accompanied by Maryse ; Ti, the housekeeper manager, and Boris, the technical manager. In addition, depending on the needs of the historical employees who come to help at important moments, and finally in the summer, about thirty employees work together between the campsite and the Nicoll’s Brothers. The team is also based on the human and the authenticity, the company is very careful about recruitment.
Here, when we smile, it’s real and it comes from the heart, we don’t know how to pretend.
