Between Les Landes…
Seignanx is located at the southern end of the Landes’ coast, only 10 km far from Hossegor and Capbreton marinas. It is also situated close to the district of Orthe (which hosts a weekly market at Peyrehorade every Wednesday, and has done since 1358) and Dax with its hot spring and roman baths. Close by is “Hautes Landes” with its regional park and its ecomuseum of Marquèze, which make great days out.
… and the Basque country
Roads become more winding as they go up along the Pyrenees mountain chain, the coast become rocky, red shutters enhance the large white houses and the Basque language replaces the Occitan. Staff will tell you about the most important tourist sites and museums (The Basque Museum of Bayonne, Virgin Rock in Biarritz, St Jean Pied de Port Citadel, the Little Rhune Train and the Basque House of Sare…), picturesque villages (Arcangues, La Bastide Clairence, Guéthary, St Etienne de Baïgorry…) and the numerous activities such as hiking, golf and rafting which will enliven your stay.
Spain and Bearn within an hour
Your stay in Seignanx also gives you the opportunity to visit Spain to taste tapas, take a stroll in the historic town-centres of Fontarrabie or San Sebastian, hike to the top of Jaizkibel or discover the Guggenheim museum in Bilbao. Finally, we can point out how close are Bearn villages such as Navarrenx or Salies de Bearn, known as “Salt city” or “Venice Bearnaise”. This will appeal to you with its narrow flower-lined alleys which snake between old stone houses with their sloping roofs. This the typical architecture of Henry IV’s kingdom, whose chateau in Pau should not be missed.
