Luë, a natural landscape and a village mindset.
Through its geographical position near the major roads in the Landes region, the identity of Luë encompasses the Pays de Born, the Haute Lande but also an entry into the ocean and Grands Lacs.
The forest covers a large part of the commune. Its history as a resin working country has been a strong reality. Several neighbourhoods have typical Landes homes surrounded by upkept, open grassy areas. The last fully restored resin worker cabin can be seen at Galiane.
This traditional heritage is a recognised and popular resource. The village mindset runs strong.
The entire area can be accessed from many forest tracks. So walking and cycling is very common and easy.
A rich historical heritage to discover
- The 800 year old Cantaure oak is listed as an outstanding tree.
- The Saint Michel fountain and Saint Pierre spring are two sources of water said to overcome any type of skin problem.
- The parish church of Saint Pierre Saint Michel is an architectural unit of 11 keystones. It was basically reworked in the late 19th century. Several details are outstanding and listed as historical monuments
Landes gastronomy & traditions
Today, the Auberge Landaise, in the centre of Luë is the only shop in the village. This half-timbered former sheepfold was fully restored recently and now has the role of bistro catering for typical Gascon cooking.
Finally, a duck farm offers a range of genuine Landes products (foie gras, confits, duck breasts).
