Landes Campsite: practical information

This page is designed so that you don’t have to spend time looking for information that you might need during your trip, to answer all the questions you’ll have for us. All of them…, well not really no. For the 20+ years since the campsite was created, (in July 1992 to be precise) we have been publishing the only the answers to essential questions. The rest, we keep for ourselves, all together (We could make a book of them. We’ll think about it.)

The jaougue is the flower of the broom plant. (pronounced like yaougue in patois + otte which means small) and this is where the campsite’s name comes from
