Forests, beaches and lakes: the three essential keywords of your stay in Messanges!
SEA AND SAND AS FAR AS THE EYE CAN SEE
The ocean and its 5 kilometres of white sandy beaches will be the mainstay of your holidays in south Landes. In addition to R&R, the main activity here is surfing, a sport that you can enjoy all year round, thanks to the mild climate. If you are interested, the surf schools will be happy to help you get set up.
This charming village of 980 inhabitants, bordered to the west by the ocean and located between Vieux-Bocaux and Moliets in the south of Landes, has an exceptionally rich heritage. The flourishing natural surroundings are the green heart of the village, with an imposing forest covering ¾ of this section of Landes countryside. The village is resplendent with colourful flowers all year round, giving it an attractive and elegant look. The fields of corn, asparagus and vines bear witness to local farming activity.
An environment like this is obviously favourable to relaxation, with two fine sandy beaches, a beautiful cycle path through the forest and away from the hustle and bustle, and two gorgeous walks around the lakes of La Prade and Moïsan.
ONE VILLAGE, TWO PACES OF LIFE
All year round, sports and cultural associations organise events like the C’Rock Maïs music festival, outdoor sporting events such as a “run and bike” race, summer festivals, the Encierro bull-run, village festivals…these festivals are moreover the opportunity for residents of Messanges to get together and share in the incredible atmosphere.
TRADITIONS AND EVENTS FOR EVERYONE
In the summer, the traditional sardinades, sardine barbecues for the whole village announced by cannon-fire, and the night-time markets are essential events for anyone looking to soak up some local culture.
The rural seaside charm of the village is certain to win you over during your stay.
