Sentier de Decouverte L'Etang de la Mailloueyre

Reviewed By renard85jp - Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie, France

On peut observer le gemmage à côté de la maison forestière, une activité aujourd'hui pratiquement disparue.
Ensuite c'est la Promenade à travers la forêt de pins. C'est désolant de voir par endroits tant d'arbres morts.
En cours de route on peut gravir les dunes et observer l'océan en contrebas.
Puis dans l'observatoire on observe les différents espèces d'oiseaux et palmipèdes qui se posent sur le lac.
Cela fait une belle Promenade.

La Plage

Reviewed By Marie-Noélle D - Moissac, France

Une trés longue plage de sable fin où enfants et chiens peuvent s'ébattre en toute liberté! On peut y marcher chaque jour en écoutant le bruit des vagues,admirer baigneurs et surfeurs et le coucher du soleil (qui déplace de nombreux photographes amateurs!..)...
Les abords ,depuis ces derniéres années,ne cessent d'être améliorés(bravo au nouveau maire!):larges promenades trés bien aménagées,rues piétonnes,boutiques ,bistrots et petits restaurants de fruits de mer où l'on peut manger en terrasse. sans se ruiner ..Des vacances de rêve,idéales pour les familles(jardin d'enfants également et plage du courant à côté).....

Reviewed By SvenDaans - Mimizan, France

Check out the inside. In the building next door, there's a small museum where you can find all the information. POI: This place is exact 1000km away from Santiago de Compostela.

Mimizan Street Market

Reviewed By Turista-Inglesa - Estepona, Spain

The weekly street market, all year round, every Friday 8.00 - 13.00, held in Mimizan Bourg is a treat in every sense.

It is one of my top two favourite open-air street markets here in France, and since the other one is in Ste-Foy-la-Grande, 188 km from here, if you are Reading this, it's too far for you to go!

This is a major tourist attraction in summer, with the visitors pouring in from all around. Holiday souvenirs and holiday photos are some of the main events here!

On the market stalls you will find absolutely everything that you could ever want to buy while on holiday. Toys and games, clothes, beach equipment, household equipment for your rented apartment, bags, shoes, garden tools, DIY tools, fabrics, bikinis, shorts, towels. Everything!

And in an absolute riot of colour.

But best of all, mixed in higgledy-piggledy among all the above, in fact the dominant type of stall, are the stalls selling food and drink.
Oh the colours, the sights, the smells!
There are special lorries with sides that drop down to reveal refrigerated glass counters for fresh fresh fresh fish. Or local-butchered meat. Or an enormous variety of cheese - aren't there supposed to be 365 types of cheese in France?

And then there are the vegetable and fruit stalls . . .

Ah, the vegetable and fruit stalls in Mimizan Market - what wouldn't Waitrose give to be able to have that produce in their stores!

Whatever time of year, there is the ripest, the freshest, the tastiest fruit and veg that you ever saw. Or smelt. Or tasted. You can walk around feeling drunk on the scent of apricots or greengages, dizzy with the reds of the cherries, the purples of the aubergines, the yellows of the peppers.
And above all, there are the stalls where they sell home-made charcuterie - pâtés and sausages. With very often a rotisserie at one end, where chickens, guinea-fowls and ducks turn round and round, releasing their savoury scent into the air. Mmmn.
So, yes, go to Mimizan Street Market. Friday mornings, all year round. It's in Mimizan Bourg, the "real" town, not Mimizan Plage. In Mimizan Plage there's a cute little market on Thursday-to-Sunday mornings, and an evening market of trinkets etc., but only in July and August.

But cute as that evening market is, it is not a patch, of course on Mimizan Street Market - the true market of southern France!
