      The Musée de la Chalosse is continuing its work to make the site accessible while it is under confinement. We will keep you informed of the date of reopening to the public and the conditions of access in accordance with the sanitary protocol in force.


      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 composed of various agricultural crops (vines, cereals, orchards, meadows), the bocage chalossais 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 sharecropper's house, the cellar and its amazing press, the vineyard conservatory, the active bread oven, the animals… At Domaine de Carcher, everything evokes the agricultural and wine Chalosse of 19th century.

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

    Endroit idéal pour se rappeler la vie difficile de nos anciens. De très bonnes explications avec une guide à l'écoute des visiteurs. La vie d'antan est très restituée, avec un cadre magnifique.
