Last week we made you discover  the fabulous history of the forest of the Landes of  Gascogne. This week, we want to give you more information about different activities that you can practice around the Sanguinet Lake.  As the sunny days are coming, why don’t you enjoy them?  😊

1. Ride around the lake using the bicycle paths


The sun comes out, so it is time to motivate oneself and resume any sport activity! The bicycle path along the Sanguinet Lake can be used throughout the year. You can use the path in the forest of pines to go to Biscarrosse and the other villages such as Parentis, Mimizan… By bike, scooter or rollers, you can have a nice sportive ride with your family!

It is possible to rent a bicycle at, Cycles Vacances Plus which is some 50 metres from the bicycle paths and our place. For the residents of the Oréades, it is possible to rent bicycles at the Caton beach, which is situated on the right of the domaine.
