A weekend, two days and a night for two with a Jurançon wine producer
Your day starts with a visit to Orthez market, meeting local producers. It's an opportunity to make up your picnic basket with 100% local products! Seasonal fruit and vegetables, meats and cheeses. This market which has a long tradition is frequented throughout the year by the local inhabitants. It is in the historic heart of Orthez from which the Moncade tower, which dominates the town, can be seen.
It's time to have a splash... so we're off to the beach with lifeguard surveillance. For the children: swimming, pedalos, water toboggans and Aquazone. For mum and dad, freshwater swimming and sunbathing on fine sand. Meet up again for an ice cream on the terrace overlooking the lake. You've still got some energy left? The more sporty amongst you can learn to waterski and those of a more contemplative turn can take in a walk around the lake on shaded walkways.
