A UNIQUE REGION TO DISCOVER...

From the Landes forest to the ocean

The great Landes of Gascony forest, local heritage and the ocean

Huttopia Landes Sud campsite is located in the midst of the Landes forest in the heart of the Aquitaine region. Discover a site set amidst pine trees as far as the eye can see, peaceful rivers, idyllic lakes and just a few miles away, the ocean with its legendary beaches. Whether by bike or on foot, you can easily explore the many shady forest trails. From a family stroll to a bike ride along the Vélodyssée cycle route (which runs along the entire Atlantic coast to Portugal), there is something for everyone.

Huttopia Landes Sud campsite is also ideally situated for exploring the Landes off the beaten track. Discover the heritage of its quaint villages, local culture and gastronomy before heading to the lively Landes beaches of Saint Girons or Hossegor at the end of the day to soak up the beautiful sunsets.

Léon

8 km

A pretty village and a bucolic lake ideal for enjoying water sports. Partly classified as a nature reserve and a Natura 2000 site, Lake Léon is very popular with nature lovers. With its public beaches and footpaths, it really is well worth exploring!

The Courant d'Huchet

8 km

This river, which runs from Lake Léon to the ocean is often known as the “Little Amazonia of the Landes” because of its exceptional landscapes, boasting remarkable wildlife. The Courant d’Huchet Nature Reserve is the last set of lakes and rivers in the Aquitaine to have preserved its natural character. It can be explored on foot or with a guided 2-4 hour trip with a boatman.

Saint Girons beach

17 km

Saint Girons beach is ideal for swimming, offering a 13 km strip of golden sand. This seaside resort at the foot of the dune is easily accessible and boasts stunning sunsets. Many other beaches are also well worth exploring, including Contis beach, Cap de l’Homy beach, and Lette Blanche beach.

Surfing in Hossegor

35 km

Hossegor is a paradise for board sports, and has become the European capital of surfing. If you want to improve your skills at this legendary sport, head to La Gravière, which is always accessible whatever the tide!

Traditional villages

6 à 50 km

A holiday in the Landes is also the ideal chance to discover quaint towns and villages, steeped in history and culture, such as Saint Michel Escalus, Seignosse, Mont-de-Marsan, Hossegor, Biscarrosse, Capbreton, and Mimizan.

Dax

38 km

Just 30 minutes from the campsite, discover this town, so emblematic of southwest France. With its ferias, arenas and hydrotherapy, you will love taking a stroll through its quaint streets during a day out combining heritage, gastronomy and a festive atmosphere.

Treat yourselves to gourmet specialties such as asparagus mousseline or a Landes salad with a slice of foie gras.

Dishes you can enjoy at all the region’s finest restaurants!

Contis lighthouse

29 km

Culminating at 38 metres in height and counting 184 steps, this is the only lighthouse in the Landes! When you reach the top, your efforts will be rewarded by the exceptional panorama stretching out before you: on one side the immense ocean and on the other the vast forest of the Landes, with a long ribbon of golden beaches and dunes between the two.

ALL SORTS OF ACTIVITIES ESPECIALLY FOR FAMILIES

Cleanliness and maintenance had end of season feel restaurant closed

Very good - only thing was the gypsy like caravan we had was right beside the swimming pool and road. It is a huge site and we would have preferred to have been away from the noise of the pool and road but as none of the caravans we booked were further back we had no choice. We always go for peace and tranquillity on our holidays hence going out of season - but it was not as peaceful as it could have been. One morning I was washing my hair and the water went cold - nothing we did would make it hot so I had to continue with the cold water. We had to get the site handyman to sort out the problem which was that the gas tank was empty. There were two tanks and one should continue onto another if one empties, but both were empty. No one had checked before our rental that there was a spare full tank. This is not good service. However, the handyman connected a new tank from another caravan to solve problem. If it wasn't for the above we would have given the site full 5 stars.
