Ah, the Landes! When you think of this gentle département, you immediately think of its golden beaches and immense forests. And if you thought you knew everything about this little corner of the South West, we've got something to surprise you. Follow us on a little trip between land and sea.
Nestling in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region, the Landes is like a gentle embrace between the Atlantic Ocean and the hinterland. Just imagine: to your left, the sea stretching as far as the eye can see, and to your right, forests as far as the eye can see.
With its privileged geographical location between land and sea and its diverse landscapes, the Landes is an unmissable destination for those looking to combine cultural discovery and natural pleasures.
Between waves and dunes
First, let's talk about this exceptional coastline. Do you like surfing or just lounging on the sand, listening to the gentle sound of the waves? This is the place to put down your towel. And between two swims, why not venture out onto the dune paths, where every step offers a breathtaking view?
The forest, the green heart of the Landes
Let's move on to the other side now, where the sand gives way to greenery. The Landes forest is the natural escape that many are looking for. Take a deep breath and the scent of the pines will surround you. Your walks here will be peaceful and invigorating.
Campsites with indoor swimming pools, for a holiday close to nature
Have you ever felt that little thrill of pleasure at the thought of lounging in a pool surrounded by lush nature? If so, you're going to love what we have to offer. Visit campsite with indoor swimming pool combines the best of both worlds: the comfort of a pool at a pleasant temperature, and the soothing setting of the Landes countryside.
Imagine swimming a few lengths, while gazing out of the bay window at the pine trees stretching as far as the eye can see. After your swim, you can relax on a sun lounger, with the birds singing as your only soundtrack.
