Another local distinctive feature: Saint-Martin-de-Seignanx has 2 centres a kilometer away from each other. The oldest is home to the church, town-hall and shops, whilst the new district has the school, post-office and restaurant. The illustrated façade of the cultural centre, the modernism of the pelota complex and the area dedicated to communal gardens show the attachment of Saint-Martin-de-Seignanx to its associations, whether sporting or cultural.

Hotel structures are largely outnumbered by other types of accommodation : Campsites, gîtes or bed & breakfast. Whether they are accommodation providers, gardeners, farmers, biologists, breeders, nurserymen, fishermen or even hunters… the Saint Martinois have a privileged relation with the environment. This naturally led to the development of several walks and the town’s commitment to Action 21.
