The Landes region
Le Vieux-Boucau (1.5km)
Formerly known as PORT D’ALBRET, VIEUX-BOUCAU’s touristic vocation established itself in the 30’s.
Vieux-Boucau Port d’Albret has shown its wisdom by conserving large natural spaces both in the ocean dunes and the forest and giving human dimensions to the resort.
The new touristic ensemble in PORT D’ALBRET built itself up around a 60 hectare sea lake wich is accessible by the Mail, a superb pedestrian walkway.
Hossegor and Capbreton (20km)
Opening out on an emerald green forest, caressed by the ocean, skirted by a glittering salt-water lake and an endless beach of fine sand, Hossegor reflects the prestige of a long welcoming tradition.
With its tasteful architecture on the Aquitany Coast and as Europe’s Surfing Capital and golfer’s paradise the elegant town of Hossegor thrives from its rich past and opens itself on what the future offers best.
With its elegant facades, its art deco building and its picturesque streets, the town’s historical pedestrianised centre is perfect for strolling…and for shopping!
Dax is an aquatic town in every sense of the word! Its name, which comes from the Latin word “aquae” was transformed over time to Acqs, d’Acqs and then Dax.
Built in the 19th century on the site of the former Roman baths, the famous Fontaine Chaude (hot water fountain) has become the key symbol of Dax as a resort, which proudly proclaims its status as France’s leading spa destination! Well-known as a treatment for many afflictions, the waters of Dax can also be enjoyed for fun in the swimming pools and balneotherapy facilities…
