Department bordering the Gironde, Gers, Lot-et-Garonne and Pyrénées-Atlantiques, the Landes fascinate lovers of nature, but also of beautiful heritage. We appreciate its magnificent pine forests, lakes and endless beaches to experience moments between outdoor activities, idleness and swimming at the beach. You can also reach its main cities to appreciate the architecture of the monuments and taste some good local products. Clearly, this part of the southwest of France brings together all the elements for a pleasant holiday alone, as a couple or with the family. And for this, the many campsites in the Landes are just waiting for travelers to let themselves go to the rhythm of the holidays.
Which campsite to choose in the Landes?
Nothing like settling in a campsite to take advantage of the wealth of the Landes. On the one hand, because camping allows you to break away from everyday life, change your habits and find yourself in an atmosphere that is 100% relaxation and leisure. And secondly, because the campsites are aimed at all audiences.
Whether you go solo, with your partner, with the family or with a group of friends, campsites in the Landes have different faces. Thus, during a stay for two or passing through with friends for a few nights during an itinerant holiday, no problem finding a structure with different locations where to put the tent. Many campsites in the Landes have a swimming pool to cool off on hot spring and summer days. An element that is always appreciable even if the sea is never far away, whether you are in Moliets-et-Maa or even in Seignosse.
For holidays with children, the Landes have campsites which are real little corners of paradise for families. In particular thanks to the offer of mobile homes. Indeed, it is always more practical when leaving with the children to find a minimum of the comfort of the house, that is to say an individual bathroom, a kitchen area with utensils and real comfortable beds! Municipalities such as Messanges, Biscarosse, Gastes and Saint-Julien-en-Born benefit from campsites where there are real aquatic spaces, always very popular with toddlers to let off steam and cool off. Slides, fountains, various and varied structures, it is a holiday that could not be more fun that awaits them on a campsite in the heart of the Landes.
In small groups or with family, the presence of a grocery store, a bread store, a laundromat, even a multitude of activities on offer (bowling, casino, fishing, disco, etc.) also makes them simpler holidays. These services are found in several campsites in the Landes; it’s up to everyone to choose according to their needs and desires.
What to do in the Landes?
The Landes are a department much appreciated for the diversity of its landscapes and the multitude of possible outdoor activities. With more than 600 kilometers of cycle paths, it is hard not to mention in the first place the possibility of mountain biking on paths crisscrossing pine forests, lakes and rivers. To be paired absolutely with gourmet picnics in the shade of the trees. For lovers of walks on the dunes, we take pleasure in walking on the sand on foot or on horseback. While noting that horseback rides with the feet in the water are also possible, a childhood dream!
The sea is of course a must in the area, and several campsites in the Landes offer direct access to the beach. To enjoy the Atlantic Ocean and its movements, Biscarosse, Mimizan-Plage, Hossegor or even Capbreton are essential seaside resorts. We like to take the time to daydream on the beach, swim and laugh in the waves, as well as indulge in various water activities, surfing in mind.
To vary the pleasures, you can also leave your campsite in the Landes to reach Soustons and its five peaceful lakes. Ideal for an invigorating walk. And we don’t forget the Armagnac vines either, landscapes to be favored for fans of wine tourism. Urban getaways lead to the most beautiful towns in the Landes. Because Dax and its thermal baths, Roquefort and its church-fortress which overhangs the river, but also the historic heart of Mont-de-Marsan are worth taking a few moments to leave nature to discover a very beautiful architectural heritage. Gourmets will take the opportunity to stop at a few gourmet addresses and taste specialties: foie gras, duck breast and Tursan wines in the lead.
