Eat, drink and shopping
"La Gascogne est un Pays de Cocagne": that is to say as much: you are in the land of plenty!
Delicious pates, confit duck breast, Salade Landaise , asparagus, pastries such as the 'Tourtière aux pommes', Armagnac (even older than cognac) for the fans. All this sprinkled with exquisite wines as you want.
On the picturesque bay of Arcachon are many fish restaurants. Lunch in France is a major gastronomic rendezvous. Let yourself be pampered on a terrace with a 3-course menu for € 12-18 (..!) And you can easily buy these specialties at the producer or at a store in jars or terrines. This way it is not too difficult to produce a peasant meal on the table by yourself.
Fresh bread can be found in Moustey, 3 km away, at the bakery and the grocery store, even on on Sunday morning accompanied by the "Sud-Ouest Dimanche," the regional newspaper packed with tourist and cultural information.
Pissos, a little further, provides a good butcher and a "superette" with good wines. On the south side of the village is a petrol station.
In Belin-Beliet, 15 km to the north, is a large supermarket, with pump, as in Parentis, where on Sunday morning and Thursday evening is a lively market.
TIP: many flea markets (Vide-Greniers) in the area, not so grazed. An updated list is in the gîte.
