Ideas for holidays, weekends and trips in Mont De Marsan and its surroundings
The Salon des Antiquaries is a regular fixture in the Mont-de-Marsan event calendar and attracts many professionals from all over the country. During this exhibit, which is held over a three-day period, antiques from both the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries are rife, coming in the form of books, paintings, pottery and much more. There are plenty of opportunities for surfing while in the Landes region and the choice of beaches is ample. Lit et Mixe is a relatively quiet spot, while the Gravel Hossegor attracts the more ‘elite' surfer. Other areas include Seignosse Les Estagnots and La Piste Capbreton. The Despiau-Wlérick Museum is also a treat for visitors to Mont-de-Marsan. This museum, which is found within a keep, focuses on modern figurative sculpture. There are 700 works at the Despiau-Wlérick and these include pieces from the likes of Zadkine, Bourdelle and Manalo, which are complemented by works of Charles Despiau and Robert Wlérick, from whom the museum takes its name. Jean-Rameau Park is ideal for a stroll, as it is located along the banks of the River Douze and there are works by Despiau peppered around. The Arènes de Plumaçon is wonderful when a bullfight is being held, and it is most advisable to visit during the Madeleine Festival. So start planning your stay at the Campanile Mont-de-Marsan today!
