A campsite with a covered, heated swimming pool in the Messanges in the Landes!

In the south of the Landes, not far from the Basque Country and the Pyrenees, we’re lucky to enjoy a climate that’s ideal for camping, with plentiful sunshine and warm temperatures for much of the year.

But our pool is one that can be used either covered or uncovered so that preseason, or on a day that happens to be a little cooler, you can still enjoy fun in the water in a large covered pool that’s nice and warm!

The pool is now open ! Don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like to find out more!
