Market town in a lovely setting

The town of Aire sur l'Adour lies in the south-west of France, in the unspoiled rolling countryside of the Landes. It is perfect for those who are seeking a home in the real France. The town is a blend of old and new, of modern commerce and traditional agriculture, of a lively and comfortable lifestyle and a peaceful, rural getaway. The town has a twice weekly market that is said to be one of the best in the region, and possibly even one of the best in France, so don't miss the opportunity to check it our for yourself.

Great for shopping

The town is attractive and well equipped, with plenty of shops and other amenities. There are banks, libraries, schools and sports facilities, so there is little need to leave the town unless you want to. The atmosphere in town is lively and yet retains the charm of an authentic French market town.

Good for families

Families will find that Aire sur l'Adour is ideal for young children, and there is an attractive park in the centre of town with safe play and picnic areas. There are some excellent restaurants where you can sample the local cuisine, and very good it is too, consisting largely of duck products such as confits, Foie Gras and magrets, and, of course, the locally produced Armagnac to drink.

Sights worth seeing... and a load of bulls...

The Cathedral of Jean-Baptiste is an impressive sight, and also worth a visit is the old church with its massive crypt. Aire sur l'Adour has an architecturally interesting Halle aux Grains, but probably the most fascinating place in town... or the worst, depending on your point of view, is the amphitheatre where the bullfighting takes place.
