Where are the Landes?
The Landes stretches from the cities of Bayonne, Anglet and Biarritz in the Basque
Country to the southern part of Gironde (Bordeaux). It offers the nicest sandy beaches of
the south west of France, and the largest pine forest in Europe. Our holiday rentals are
located in the south coast of the Landes, between the cities of Moliets
(north) and Labenne
The stretch of coast
The Landes’ beaches face the Atlantic Ocean in what is called the Bay of Biscay. They
are famous hosting some of the beach breaks waves and attract numerous surfers
enjoying a surf trip in Aquitaine
. In Autumn each
year, a stage of the World Championship of surfing is organised Hossegor and
You will find in the Landes a large range of holiday rentals, from the studio appartment
next to the beach to the quiet house with a swimming pool bordering one a of the
prestigious golf courses
The Landes’ spirit
Each town and village in the south west of France will host a « Feria » during summer.
These festivals will last from one week-end to a full week (Bayonne, Dax, Mont de
Marsan), rythmed by the “Bandas”
corridas and Courses Landaises
preparing for a night long party.
Your holidays in the Landes can also resonate with sports: beside the beach activities,
you will enjoy one of the numerous bycicle tracks in the pines or attend to a rugby game,
or a Basque Pelota tournament
Don’t forget to relish from the food treasures the south west of France can offer in your
holiday rental’s kitchen: foie gras (duck liver), magret (duck breast fillet)...
