Landes has a lot to offer - long Atlantic surfing beaches, behind the dunes pine forests with cycling trails, rolling unspoilt countryside used to grow corn and to the south it is close to the Pyrenees for winter sports or climbing. The coastline has resorts such as Capbreton and Hossegor as well as quieter beaches. Inland the Parc Regionale des Landes de Gascogne is ideal for those who love the great outdoors. The region's capital and administrative centre is Mont de Marsan, which has a full range of shops and services. Dax with its thermal springs attracts those wishing health cures and there are also a number of smaller popular spas. The nearest airports are Bordeaux to the north, Biarritz to the south and Pau to the east. The TGV Atlantique reaches Paris in 4 hours and there is a wide network of roads leading to the motorway network. The region has its own wine and Armagnac and is known for its foie gras, duck, chicken and ham. Many of the villages have markets selling a wide range of local produce and in the summer each has a fete.
My wife and I moved here in spring 2008 along with our horses, dogs and cats to seek a better work life balance. The better climate allowed us the opportunity to develop our equine breeding. We would thoroughly recommend the move if you are seeking, like us, a more rural and tranquil lifestyle where the horses live out more and our own kitchen garden increases year on year. Arriving with “rusty French” our language skills were soon developed to incorporate the local accent, which vary village to village. We do not feel isolated as the neighbours are helpful and allowed us to integrate into village life. A wide range of commercial facilities are within easy reach of most parts of the area. As you can see from my portfolio the houses range from traditional to modern and I look forward to being able to share my enthusiasm for the area with you.View Aquitaine Information Homepage
