General

Very good to learn the other side of Les Landes ... the natural one, not the brick and mortar one.

- More than 5 feet and it closes out. Otherwise it would be ok except for the crowds.

bullshit! - been there for more than 10 years now. water is NOT polluted (wonder, where you guys have been???) and the locals are open minded and friendly. perhaps you were the problem? looking forward to stay there 4 weeks again in august and having a good time as every year....
