Biscarrosse resort of the Aquitaine Coast and the third city of the department of Landes, privileged to be broken down into three perfectly complementary poles: the City, a veritable administrative and commercial heart of the town, the Lakes and Ocean Beach. These three places are enclosed in the middle of the largest forest in Europe, the Landes forest of Gascogne (1.2 million ha of maritime pines).

It is located less than an hour from Bordeaux, capital of the Aquitaine Region, just minutes from the national 10 and 1h30 from Spain.
