At the beginning of the seventeenth century, Hossegor had for heart a freshwater lake, occupying the former bed of the Adour, when it flowed further north to Vieux-Boucau. Hossegor developed around this lake connected to the ocean in 1880. In the early twentieth century, buildings in neo-Basque style flourished on its shores: the Sporting Casino, the golf clubhouse, the Place des Landais on the beach and villas, including that of the painter Sourgen "Dreaming, Painting, Hunting. The place has long been frequented by many artists, politicians and intellectuals.
