Mont de Marsan
The city of 3 rivers
Take advantage of the unbeatable location of our hotel in the city centre to discover Mont de Marsan and its history dating back to the 12th century. The city with three rivers invites you to stroll around.
Art and nature in the heart of the city
Mont de Marsan is also known as the city of sculptures
From the bridge of the Midou esplanade, you can see the washhouse called "cale de l'abreuvoir" dating from 1868. Situated at the foot of the confluence of the three rivers, it is one of the best viewpoints to admire the Midou and the Douze forming the Midouze.
Mont de Marsan is also known as the city of sculptures. In addition to the Despiau Wlérick Museum (4 min walk from the hotel) which houses nearly 2000 sculptures by Mont Marsan artists Charles Despiau and Robert Wlérick, the town exhibits sculptures from all over the world in its streets and parks throughout the year. Don't miss the latest arrival: "La Plongeuse", a woman throwing herself into the Midouze.
