Once a major sheep farming area where shepherds travelled the marshes on stilts, the Landes is
now home to an impressive maritime pine forest. With a mild climate thanks to its position on the Atlantic, the Landes also boasts the longest beach in Europe – the Côte d'Argent.
Mile after mile of white sand means that you can always find a quiet spot, while the rolling Atlantic waves have made towns such as Mimizan and Hossegor a magnet for surfers.
For nature-lovers spring and autumn bring the sight of the common cranes breaking their long migration, between Germany and Scandinavia in the north and Spain in the south, on the lakes of the Landes. It's a magnificent sight to see them arrive or depart in their long skeins, calling to each other as they go.
Superb property, fully renovated in recent years to a high standard, offering approx 900 m² of living space and is set in just under 10 Ha of land, just a short walk away from a lively village with shops and school some 20 or so minutes from Dax in the Landes department.
