4) The area of the camper contis between pine forest and ocean perfect for a night in a van!

In the Landes there are plenty of rest and quality areas for motorhomes. Thus at the foot of the arenas, as in Azur or Pomarez. In the duck farms of Chalosse. And those, of course, feet in the water, hands in the sand and head under the pines. As on the area of Contis, at the foot of the eponymous lighthouse, just behind the dune. From the parking lot, you can hear the ocean. We love this corner for the spirit of freedom that reigns there, less crowded than the beaches of the coast further south (even if in high season, you may have neighbors). A wild side in the middle of the pines. If you love freedom, you will be served.

5) Lake Mimizan, a quiet and relaxing place in the south west!

If you want to park your truck fitted out by a lake in Mimizan in the Landes. Nice place with a large lake, small bridge, children’s play, toilets, drinking water… it’s quiet and it’s good. Spending the night is free and allowed and animals are accepted, besides many walkers come with their dog. To continue, all day fishermen come to test the fish. And apparently it bites! So if you’re a fishing enthusiast, feel free to take your rod out here. You will also be able to see a flowering garden that is ranked #1 in the activities to do around the corner by Trip Advisor… that is to say. Indeed, a small ballad of about 15 minutes very nice. The setting is pretty and there are all kinds of beautiful plants.
