The village of Saint-Julien-en-Born, where the house is situated, is located in Les Landes, one of the 5 departments of the
Aquitaine region. The area offers numerous opportunities for activities
outside the park. Whether you love the beach, sunbathing, swimming, walking, cycling, fishing, golf, canoeing, visiting cities, it's all possible.
The beaches are clean and quiet, even in high season. The areas where many activities take place are supervised during high season. The nearest supervised beach, Contis Plage is about 8 km from the park and can be easily reached by car or bicycle.
The interior of Les Landes is characterized by extensive pine forests, a gently sloping landscape and many lakes and rivers. A vast network of cycling and hiking trails has been created in the pine forests.
From the park you can quickly visit the most beautiful towns and villages, such as Bordeaux, Lourdes, Dax, Bayonne and St. Jean Pied-de-Porte. Some well-known seaside resorts are: Mimizan, Biscarrosse, Vieux-Boucau, Capbreton, Arcachon, Biarritz, St. Jean-de-Luz.
