  • What Is A Bastide?

    A historical definition is in order. In the 12C the SW part of France was an unpopulated and lawless area because of fighting between England and France (Aquitaine vs. Toulouse), brigandage and the Albigensian Crusade. At the same time, population was exploding. The concept of free-towns (bastides) was approved by the central authorities. Some say...

  • The beaches of Landes

    Extending from the Gironde estuary to the Basque coast, the Landes coast is a 220 km long sandy beach, almost linear. Bassin d’Arcachon and small river mouths are the only discontinuities of the coast. I like the beaches except in summer; stormy winds of winter, late autumn with red sunsets, spring with flowers on the dunes. The beaches are quite...

  • Mont de Marsan and villages

    Mont de Marsan is the prefecture (administrative centre) of the Landes department. This small town has a very interesting fine arts museum (Musee Despiau-Wlerick) organising every summer temporary exhibitions on special themes. This museum is located in an old donjon tower from the 13th century. Apart this tower and the arenes (Bull and cow...

  • The Landes forest is the widest of...

    The Pine forest of the Landes covers about 6700 km² and is the widest of Europe; well, a small one compared to the taiga or the Amazonian forest! But you can walk or bike here for hours without stepping on other people, especially during the late Autumn very misty foggy weather.The pines (Pinus pinaster) of this forest are not very common outside...

  • Beautiful vineyards

    The vineyards are like gardens, lots of work has to be done to make a good wine, and this begins in the vineyard.The PessacLeognan wines are top and given their price, you may understand the mansions are quite . . . cosy! The land here is probably more expensive than construction land in a residential area of a average French city.The chateaux,...

  • Bordeaux wines of course, but not only!

    La Gironde which designates the broad estuary after the Garonne and Dordogne rivers junction is the widest department in France. Lots of places to be visited, archaeology, prehistory, geology (Aquitanian, Burdigalian. . .), the long beaches on the Ocean, the Bassin d’Arcachon, the Dune du Pyla, Bordeaux, of course, other historical cities, I may...
