The Eco Museum of Marquèze



A 25 hectare site, an exceptionally rich architectural heritage, an incredible collection of ancient objects and know-how saved from oblivion.

A day in Marquèze:
As soon as you arrive at the old Sabers station, board the historic train that will take you to the Marquèze district. The traditional houses, animations and demonstrations of know-how, the landscapes and the unique atmosphere of the place will transport you on a surprising journey to the 19th century.

The festivals and events punctuate the district throughout the season and give it a unique atmosphere. We like to meet there with family or friends, dance to the sound of Gascon music, taste the famous Landes Pastis just out of the oven, stroll along the river ...

The Arjuzanx Natural Reserve Lake

Located on the territory of the municipalities of Arjuzanx, Morcenx, Rion des Landes and Villenave, the Arjuzanx site covers 2,679 ha.

In the heart of the Landes department (40), the Arjuzanx site was born from the exploitation and rehabilitation by EDF of a lignite mine. Ecological rehabilitation works and natural evolution have given this site a remarkable natural dimension with highly contrasting landscapes, diverse habitats and species of exceptional heritage value.

The site has notably become the largest French wintering site for Common Cranes. We offer specific offers from mid October to mid February.

Acquired in 2002 by the Landes Department, the site is managed with a dual objective of sustainable protection and enhancement of this natural heritage.

Discover a Nature area & cut yourself off from the world for a walk, bike or horse ride.
A nautical base with paddle rentals, pedal boats & canoes will allow you to explore the Lake.


Located 40 mins from the ocean you can devote a day or more to surfing.

We recommend a great school on Contis Plage. You will breathe the spray on one of our favorite beach because you will be alone in the world ....

Contis Surf School welcomes you in the pedestrian street of Contis Plage. You will discover the exceptional setting of the current, the wild beaches of Contis Sud, the family and warm atmosphere of a seaside resort with idyllic charm.
Alone or with the family, Contis Beach is an ideal surf destination for beginners to sport as well as experienced amateurs.

Pierre Picat started surfing from the age of 6 on Contis beach. From there was born a real passion for this sport. After joining a sport study surfing high school, he participated in numerous national competitions.

In 2016, he created his school on the beach of Contis Sud, ideal for beginners or more experienced surfers.
This school wants to be different in the human and convivial approach, far from the impersonal and standardized sequences.
