Messanges is a small village of 1,000 people surrounded by countryside, and ¾ of its territory is covered by forest, interspersed with fields of corn and vineyards.
The many cycle paths and hiking trails are a great way to explore its forest, lakes, unspoilt beach and vines, which produce Vin de Sable wine. Lovers of jogging, walking and cycling will be delighted to find all this so close by.
Only a 5-minute bike ride away, you will be at the gates of Vieux Boucau Port d'Albret, a dynamic little village. You can attend the famous Course Landaise bull runs in the arena, watch a game of Basque pelota or practise it yourself on the fronton with pala racquets. From 15 June to 15 September, a big market awaits you along the canal, every day except Sundays. You can walk or cycle around its marine lake or simply go swimming, stand-up paddling or canoeing.
