The Landes are a paradise for nature lovers. Its forests, wide beaches and numerous lakes are the ideal place to spend time outdoors.
Nature in its purest state
The Landes coasts, bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, allow families to discover activities such as surfing or bodyboarding. Many cycle paths extend along Europe’s largest forest, allowing you to walk and reach the region’s main tourist attractions in a healthy and environmentally friendly way. In turn, the many water points such as Lake Hossegor, Lake Azur or Lake Vieux Boucau offer the ideal environment for water sports.
We invite you to explore nearby cities such as Hossegor where you can shop in its many shops and in the factories of the major surf brands. The picturesque village of Capbreton is the ideal place to go on boat trips, visit the fishing port and taste the most delicious fish in the region.
At the gateway to the Basque Country
Only 30 minutes by car from Bayonne and 40 minutes from Biarritz, the discovery of the Basque country is not to be missed. The particular architecture of the Basque houses, their gastronomy and traditions are worth a visit. Cities such as San Jean de Pied de Port, classified among the most beautiful villages in France, and Espelette with its famous chilli pepper will never cease to amaze you.
During the summer months, the city festivities and the famous bullfighting fairs of Dax and Bayonne take place. People from all over Europe gather around a glass of sangria and the joyful music of the groups who walk the streets of the city.
A stone’s throw from Spain
Spain is also presented as a very good plan. The friendly city of San Sebastian is one hour from Camping Les Chevreuils, which allows you to make the round trip on the same day. Many shows and cultural events for all tastes are organized throughout the year. We cannot fail to mention the tapas bars, where you can enjoy a wide variety of pintxos.
