The river, le gave du Saison, separates hilly Mauléon with its old square, covered market, Trinitarian church and the fortress from the mainly flat part of town Licharre.
The 11th-century fortress, 17th-century Chateau d'Andurain, Town Hall, the Tourist Office and all the small town shops, supermarkets, restaurants, cinema and sports and other facilities are a short walk away. You can be on a grassy track ready to climb for a better view of the mountains and valleys within a few of minutes of leaving the house.|
Mauléon's industry has changed since the espadrille boom of the last century. There are three workshops left in town that have outlets. Apart from farming, aeronautics and high-tech businesses are now major sources of employment.
The local restaurants serve traditional and snack-type lunches and dinners to suit most tastes and budgets. Most shops close for a long lunch break, including the espadrille outlets.
