The Local Area

St Martin de Hinx
The village offers a few essential shops including a boulangerie, a bar and tennis courts. There are further shops and supermarkets in St Martin de Seignanx (10 kms) and at Peyrehorade and St-Vincent-de-Tyrosse. Peyrehorade has an excellent market twice-weekly. Nearby restaurants of note include one in the village Ste-Marie-de-Gosse and the Auberge "la Petite Charlotte" at Biaudos.

Capbreton and Hossegor
The local region of Sud Landes is typical Aquitaine - endless stretches of sandy beaches buffeted by the Atlantic ocean, vast pine forests punctuated by the occasional lake and criss-crossed by a network of cycle trails.

Capbreton and Hossegor are neighbouring seaside towns which between them offer an appealing contrast. Hossegor is the more famous, largely through its surfing heritage. It's a 'feelgood' place offering boutique shopping, great bars and restaurants, world-famous surfing beaches, casino, and a lovely golf course and a beautiful lake for safe bathing.

Capbreton lives in the shadow of Hossegor but it's the place the locals prefer for eating out and for beaches. It's definitely the more authentic of the two, largely because of its fishing port and daily fish market. In fact, the town thrived in the 19th century as a whaling port and this sea-faring heritage is still very much apparent today.

It also has a charming town centre and market. Capbreton is just more French than Hossegor, if you see what we mean. It remains, admirably, something of a French (and Spanish) secret.
Capbreton sea-front is a bustling place, day and evening. You can walk all the way along the marina and sea-front. The jetty, known locally as l'estacade, offers excellent coastal views. There's normally a few locals here trying to catch a fish for supper. It makes for great viewing!

Like most of the south west coast, Capbreton-Hossegor is something of an outdoor playground. Take your pick from surfing, canoeing, sailing, diving, fishing, cycling, tennis, horse-riding and golf to name a few.

Basque Country & Spain
A short drive south are the elegant and colourful resorts of Biarritz and St Jean de Luz. Both provide excellent beaches, cuisine and up-market shopping as well as a good introduction to the Pays Basque. Famed for its ham and its chocolates, Bayonne was under English rule for 300 years. It is much under-rated and worth a trip to see its cathedral, museums, ramparts and walk its ancient streets.

Heading inland, the delightful rolling green hills and picture-perfect villages of the Pays Basque are a must. La Bastide-Clairence, Ainhoa, Sare, Espelette and Ascain all perfectly demonstrate Basque village life.

It's only a short distance over the Spanish border to the majestic seaside city and culinary mecca, San Sebastian. The more adventurous could drive another hour or so further along the northern coast to Bilbao to see the Guggenheim.
