Perfectly located between ocean and forest, the department of Landes is the ideal destination for your romantic holiday; in fact, you can spend a single day discovering nature in the heart of Europe’s largest forest, or observing magnificent sunsets on one of the many beaches along the Landes coast.
Along the way, why not stop by a producer for a tasting of local food and products?
With an important cultural and built heritage, the Landes will allow you to go from discovery to discovery.
In particular, you must discover Hossegor, the European surf capital and the famous brands that have set up their commercial premises there, offering you an ideal setting to buy accessories, clothing or simply to please you.
Unusual accommodation is also available in the department, in order to spend nights as relaxing as they are original
Yoga courses (usually lasting one week) are offered in different establishments! Some surfcamps even offer Surf&Yoga packages!
The moors, the ideal gateway to the Basque Country
Only 30 minutes by car from Bayonne and 40 minutes from Biarritz, the discovery of the Basque country is a must. The particular architecture of the Basque houses, the local gastronomy and traditions are worth a visit. Cities such as Saint-Jean-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.
But also to 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 for one 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“.
After your holidays in the Landes, you will necessarily be more relaxed…
