Installation of wooden terraces on the pedestrian axis of the village of cabins

The fire in the forest of La Teste-de-Buch had logically put a temporary halt to our work to requalify the reception area, they resumed this fall. As a reminder, these works do not consist of a major metamorphosis or an extension of the developed spaces. In fact, the site is class and the objective is to ensure its preservation while improving visiting conditions for all audiences, throughout the year.

From major developments : the new bike path at the entrance to the site, the requalification of the main service with the recalibration of the road system and theintegration of specific parking lots (people with reduced mobility, electric vehicles, etc.), the redevelopment of parking spaces dedicated to buses and the realization of wooden decking docks standards for people with reduced mobility, the development of the pedestrian axis… This wide promenade will allow visitors to walk through the reception area, from the entrance to the site to the village of cabins, without trampling on the vegetation and preserving the soil.
