At that time it was not a castle as such, but a large bourgeois mansion with a wall clock above the main gate.

However, a century ago now (in 1920), the then owner demolished the building and built the castle as it exists today.

Linxe is a small village situated between Vielle Saint-Girons and Castets (the latter is located on the A63 motorway), with many wooden houses whose typical Landaisian features make them very attractive.

On this route, which is flat and includes forest paths and cycle paths, it is worth taking a short detour to see the Belle Epoque castle, a real neo-Renaissance jewel dating back to 1762.

The route starts here, in the car park opposite Saint-Martin church, in the centre of Linxe.

Once you start walking, turn left along the Route de La Lande and, 250 metres later, turn left into the Rue Lois Labeque.
