    • A few minutes from Dax, between the pine forest and the Pyrenees, Chalosse, with its fertile and hilly landscape, offers another face of the Landes.

      Formerly made up of varied agricultural crops (vineyards, cereals, orchards, meadows), the Chalossais bocage is a land of high gastronomic tradition, renowned for its foie gras and its authentic labeled beef.

      A richly furnished mansion, the garden and the sharecropping house, the cellar and its astonishing press, the vine conservatory, the working bread oven, the animals... At the Domaine de Carcher, everything evokes the agricultural and wine-growing Chalosse of the 19th century.

      Equipped with a media library, a public service, a temporary exhibition room, the Chalosse Museum is a veritable conservatory of the Chalosse identity, with its beliefs, its know-how and its techniques. An authentic place, inhabited and welcoming, for the whole family, in the image of this generous, gourmet and festive land!

    Very nice museum. Well documented. It is possible to devote several hours to it without getting tired of it. Don't forget the Deboreha Lange temporary exhibition.

    Very interesting and pleasant visit. Very good documentation, very accessible in each building. The life of sharecroppers is well described thanks to the videos projected and the scenarios presented throughout the course. The welcome is perfect, smiling. We also really enjoyed the temporary photographic exhibition. Do not hesitate to discover this museum which also offers a lovely panorama of Chalosse.
