With a population of 30,000, the peaceful town of Mont-de-Marsan is the perfect destination for exploring at leisure during a business trip or weekend away with friends or family. Once out of the hotel, head off to check out its architectural heritage. Wander through the lanes, linger in the little squares, and visit the Arènes de Plumaçon, the Donjon Lacataye castle keep, and the old defensive walls. The Musée Despiau-Wlérick might catch your eye too, which is the only museum in France dedicated to figurative sculpture from the early 20th century. The museum also has a fabulous sculpture garden and excellent views of the town and surrounding area.
Staying for longer in Mont-de-Marsan? Then why not head deeper into Landes to explore the department’s nature and culture? Visit the Château de Ravignan in Perquie for a romantic jaunt through the Age of Enlightenment, learn something new at the Armagnac ecomuseum in Labastide-d’Armagnac, or take some time out for a bit of TLC at the Barbotan thermal spa in Cazaubon. If you feel like getting back to nature during your stay in our Mont-de-Marsan hotel, head to the lush green surroundings of Parc Jean-Rameau. You’ll be greeted by all sorts of plant life and amazing sculptures, as well as several themed gardens — including a Japanese garden.
The peaceful town of Mont-de-Marsan is surrounded by natural space and lush green countryside, making it an ideal destination for a family stay in Nouvelle-Aquitaine. In the summer, the Saint-Pierre-du-Mont water sports and leisure center is a great day out, with plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy in the heart of a forest park. Next, take the kids to walk in the footsteps of Prehistoric beings on a fascinating trip to the archaeological site of Brassempouy, then to check out the wildlife at the Nahuques animal park. Head back to your Première Classe hotel sleepy but satisfied.
