Lit-et-Mixe - Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Landes

At the heart of the "Nature Coast Landes," and still preserved wild Lit-et-Mixe, charming and attractive village of 1473 inhabitants, offers a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Bed which means coastal and Mixe, common as it is 5 km south came together to make a single village Lit-et-Mixe; immense pine forest 11,295 acres bordered by the Atlantic Ocean.

At the heart of bed, around his small weekly market and seasonal, you learn the architecture of the church: "Our Lady of Bed" and the wealth of its museum of popular traditions, the "Old Land".

We can talk about Lit-et-Mixe without citing its beautiful beach of Cap de L'Homy, a true paradise for fishermen and surfers. This marriage of the ocean and the forest provides Lit-et-Mixe like a charm.
