Things to do

Bazas Basilica

You might just want to relax with a good book or, if you have the energy, play badminton, table tennis, jump on the trampoline, or simply splash around in the pool. You’ll also find the church square perfect for a traditional game of  boules (or petanque as it’s known here). But when you ready to venture out, there are many day trips to choose from to please everyone in the family. Take a look at the Location page to find out more about the many places to visit in the region.


Some of the local activities...


Within a stone’s throw, animal-loving children will enjoy a visit to a ferme découverte or a deer farm, a bee center, a trout farm (for a spot of fishing), a frog sanctuary and a cow-breeding farm (for the local Courses Landaises of course). Or a day-trip to one of the local recreational lakes (complete with playgrounds, water-slides and pedalos) is sure to be a hit with the kids.
The sport-lover is also spoiled for choice between cycle and walking trails (among them the pilgrim paths to Compostella), tennis, golf, horse-riding, canoeing and tree-top trekking, all available locally.
And for people in search of total relaxation: why not try one of the anti-stress treatments at the local Spa town?


Experience the true Landaise Culture


You needn’t go far to discover one of the local pastime: Quilles (or Skittles). Every Friday evening, St-Julien church square becomes the practise grounds of the local Quille Club members (among them some French champions), who are always happy to introduce their game to friendly spectators.
The renowned Bas-Armagnac vineyards all around Beaux-Cieux are the perfect place to get a taste and an understanding of the “Brandy of Princes”. Food is very much a part of the Landaise culture and where else to discover it than the local restaurants and markets (take a look at our Food and Drink page to find out more)?
But better still, you can always join in the party spirit at the nearby village fêtes or watch a Course Landaise, the local corrida where men show bravery and skill facing a charging (un-harmed) cow!


The choice of activities is endless and you'll find a pretty extensice guide at the house, as well as brochures and maps to help you take your pick.
