The Aquitaine region

South of Bordeaux begins the region of Les Landes. It feels like another world with the coast stretching virtually uninterrupted from the Gironde estuary all the way down to Soustons, Hossegor and Cap Breton before reaching the foothills of the Pyrenées and Basque country. It is remarkably unspoilt, open and natural, the coast is dominated by long stretches of golden sand washed by Atlantic waves. The stretch where the Côte d'Argent turns - quite literally - into the Côte Basque, offers some of the Continent's best surfing. In all there is more than 220km of coastline with 55 supervised beaches.

The coast encompasses a huge variety including: oyster beds and yachting marinas, fishing villages and vineyards, and the highest sand-dunes in Europe. Climb the dunes and before you, stretching as far as the eye can see, lie the pine forests of Les Landes, 1100 km² of pine forest planted during the 19th century.

The 2.5 hectare estate of Domaine de Bellegarde sits on the edge of the attractive village of Soustons, a village in an exceptional position, bordered on one side by the Atlantic Ocean and its outstanding beaches and on the other side by a large fresh water lake, Lac d'Soustons, suitable for sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and swimming.

Soustons is divided into two areas, the town of Soustons, 7 km from the coast, located on the southerly end of a large Lake with an overall area of 700 square hectares and Soustons Beach on the large natural sea fed, salt water lake (with its own beaches & Island) known as the "Lac Marin de Port d'Albret", with an overall area of 51 square hectares.

The pine forests surround Soustons village with numerous cycle trails and walking paths leading to the lakes and beaches. Like most of the south west coast, Soustons is something of an outdoor playground.


There is so much to see and so many interesting places to explore in Les Landes including glorious beaches, grand chateaux, beautiful cathedrals, medieval cities and charismatic small towns. Fortunately, the Domaine de Bellegarde is a perfect base from which to discover this spectacular region of South West France!

Soustons is a vibrant village just 7km from the wonderful ocean beaches and set on the edge of an unspoilt lake of 125 acres with a watersports centre for sailing, windsurfing, rowing & kitesurfing. There are numerous dedicated bike trails linking the villages in the surrounding area with the coast and lakes - ideal for children as they are paved, level and completely safe. The beaches are truly stunning and offer the chance to learn to surf with accredited surf schools as well as patrolled bathing and spotlessly clean beaches!

Visit the cosmopolitan beachside towns of Hossegor (15 mins) & Biarritz, (only 30 mins) both well known for their great shopping, chic cafes and magnificent seafood restaurants plus the beaches and surf!

For something a little more therapeutic and relaxing, visit the wonderful town of Dax. Famous for its natural thermal spas and hydrotherapy, this town is only 20 minutes away.

Of course, not forgetting that surfing in France first started here! The Biarritz Surf Festival brings together surfers from Hawaii, Australia and California every year to celebrate the birth of surfing in Biarritz.

Bayonne, the capital of the region, is just 30 minutes away. The rich historical and commercial past of this town will enchant any visitor. All around the town is evidence of fortifications from Roman Times. The magnificent 14th Century gothic Cathedral is definitely worth a visit. Bayonne is famous for its chocolate and ham, for the excellent Bonnat Museum of Art and for its summer festival (Fetes de Bayonne).

Pau, one and a quarter hours away, is renowned for being the most elegant town that overlooks the Pyrenées. Visit the Chateau de Pau, the 13th Century Notre Dame Cathedral, museums or simply enjoy the stunning views from the cliff tops. Motorsport fans will enjoy visiting the track where the F3000 and French Touring Car Championships have been held, the second oldest track in the world!

And don't forget, Spain is only a 45 minute drive from Soustons. Visit the gorgeous towns of San Sebastian or Bilbao for a little taste of the Spanish life!
