Messanges, in the Landes of Gascony region: your camping destination

Wine estate in the Landes near the campsite in Messanges

A village that is both touristy, traditional and on the Atlantic Coast!

Le Moussaillon campsite in Messanges, is located just 2000 m from a vast sandy beach. Messanges is a pretty Gascon village with a lovely atmosphere that is sure to delight.

Part of the route that leads to the beach, follows a pretty winding path through the forest and surrounding countryside.

There are some pretty, little towns nearby with shops and amenities: Vieux Boucau, Moliets, Soustons, etc.

There are numerous markets in both Messanges and Vieux Boucau selling a wealth of regional products. The forest, lakes, extensive cycle paths and, of course, the sea, all contribute to the region’s charm.

The lake of Moïsan, the lake of la Prade and the Atlantic Ocean are perfect for a spot of fishing.

The Landes campsite Le Moussaillon is close to the Ocean, to its fine white sandy beaches, natural beaches of course.
The lakes and ponds alternate with the forest, the hiking trails and above all the cycle paths which plunge you into the heart of the Landes forest.

You can cycle for kilometres with your children in complete safety along the cycle paths. The Vélodyssée marked cycle route, greenway and forest path are the perfect way to explore the Landes, at your own pace, as well as making your everyday journeys that bit easier.
