Nestled on the Spanish border at the foot of the Pyrenees, the authentic Basque Country maintains its strong identity thanks to its inhabitants’ resolute attachment to their language and their culture.
Boasting a rich variety of landscapes from the ocean to the mountains, the region draws nature lovers from far afield and, hot in summer and remarkably mild in winter, benefits from an ideal climate for numerous activities such as hiking, sailing, cycling, surfing, golf and, of course, the region’s typical local sport Basque pelota.
A love of sport is, it seems, in the inhabitants’ DNA…
A gastronomic hub, the region boasts some 12 Michelin stars on the French side of the border and 26 in Spain.
The second largest department in France, the Landes is characterized by a coastline stretching for over 100 kilometers, dotted with immense and beautiful sandy beaches. Inland are majestic lakes and magnificent pine forests covering over half of the department and stretching as far as the eye can see.
Finally, it is impossible to talk about the Landes without mentioning its festive side, and in particular its traditional ferias. Whether you are in Dax, Mont-de-Marsan or a typical little village, these events are synonymous with fun and conviviality. Watch or take part in the age-old courses landaises, and treat yourself to delicious local produce to the festive musical accompaniment of local bandas.
With a multitude of activities and attractions for young and old, the Landes department oozes with character and offers an exceptional quality of life.
