Once you have booked your room or suite in a spa hotel in the Landes, it is time to start looking at the activities and outings that you can do near your hotel establishment. The editors of Unique Hôtel Spa have gone to find you original offers, sports, well-being, heritage and cultural.
Start your Landes escapade with a walk in one of the department's magnificent towns. Among them, we recommend Biscarrosse, Mimizan, Dax, Mont-de-Marsan, Hossegor and Capbreton.
Continue your trip with a nautical activity. This is the thing to try if you come to this French department. You may wonder why. The answer is simple. The Landes with its many beaches and ocean, rivers and lakes is the destination par excellence to learn water sports. Let yourself be tempted by a surfing session, a canoeing trip, a pedal boat, a paddle boat or a pirogue. All you have to do is rent your equipment.
If you are horsemen, gallop in couple at sunset along the fine sandy beaches of Seignosse.
Finally, treat yourself to a delicious meal in one of the Michelin-starred gourmet restaurants. We recommend Michel Guérard's restaurant*** in the hotel Les Près d'Eugénie - Maison Guérard - Relais & Châteaux in Eugénie-les-Bains. Gastronomic establishments such as Les Clefs d'Argent in Mont-de-Marsan, the table of the hotel Villa Étang Blanc in Seignosse and the Relais de la Poste in Magescq will also offer you exceptional dishes.
Vacations are ideal to discover the richness of a territory. But during this break, you should also think about yourself. In the Landes, you will find many natural places and facilities conducive to relaxation.
If you like to get closer to nature, we recommend you to take a breath of fresh air at dawn by the ocean. For that, go to the beach of Mimizan, the beach of Hossegor, Biscarrosse, Seignosse or to the beach of the Estacade in Capbreton. If you feel like it, let yourself be tempted by a yoga session. Still on the nature side, we recommend you to go and rest at the edge of a lake. And there is no lack of them in the Landes. The lake of Aureilhan and Mimizan, the lake of Léon, the lake of Soustons and the lake of Hossegor will bring you calm and serenity.
Looking for an original well-being activity? Try yoga on a surfboard or pilates paddle on the beach of Mimizan. Disconnection and zen effect guaranteed!
