The campsite is closed to pets and children over 9 years of age, to ensure peace and quiet.

The setting

Set in a beautiful Landes airial, the bungalow is in a quiet spot against the forest, in the shade most of the day.
There are a few chickens and squirrels in the grounds, as there are many hazelnut trees.
Pontenx les Forges is a charming village with all amenities, and a beautiful forest path leads directly from the plot to the village or to the sports center and cycle path, a 10-minute walk away.
