The village of Dax was France's first spa village, and it retains its prestige as an epicenter of relaxation to this day. In summer and winter, its special climate allows tourists to enjoy leisure activities and visits to nearby places of interest.
Only a few miles from the Atlantic coast, the town lies in the shelter of Europe’s largest forest and enjoys the mild ocean climate, protected from sea winds and the rigours of winter. The climate means that it is also a winter resort.
The calming properties of the local air add to the town’s gentle way of life.
