About Landes

Landes, aka “Les Landes”, is regarded as the most extensive forest region in southwestern  France, lying along the Atlantic coast. Formerly a marshland, the basin was originally covered with lakes and ponds and later became a sandy plain after being drained by canals in the second half of the 19th century. The soil was stabilised after the afforestation with maritime pines. Unfortunately, a disastrous fire from 1937 to 1950 destroyed 3 quarters of the forest. It was later recovered through afforestation. This land that has gone through tremendous changes and a disaster is now known to local people for its quality crops such as maize, wheat, grapes and etc. It is also where the Hédène Heather Honey is originated.


Landes is actually a region that produces wines, especially in “The Chalosse” area. However, it has not been in the spotlight partly due to the proximity to a much more famous wine region, Bordeaux.

Erica heather blossoms from June to October. Honey is then harvested at the beginning of autumn.
