The Aquitaine region

Houtsak Ina is situated in Pouillon in the south of the Landes department (40) and bordering the Pays Basque department (64). The situation is fabulously placed to make the most of the glorious sandy surfing beaches of the Landes and also the stunning foothills of the Pyrenees and indeed the magnificent mountains themselves.

Every watersport imaginable is on offer - from ssurfing, body boarding, wake boarding to sailing, diving and snorkeling, this piece of coast has it all.

In the forests of the Landes you also have access to fantastic walking, mountain biking, road biking and horse riding or trekking. And of course, don’t forget, an hour away, start the chateaux and fantastic wines of Bordeaux.

40 minutes to the South and you are starting to climb into the Pyrenean Mountains, with all their stunning scenery and charging rivers. Take your pick from white water rafting, canoeing, fishing, canoeing, climbing, ice climbing, pot holing, caving, walking and, of course, in the winter, skiing and cross country skiing.
