Saint-Vincent-de-Paul is a commune in the Landes department in Aquitaine in south-western France.

The village was formerly called Pouy. It was renamed in 1828 after Saint Vincent de Paul, who was born there. You can visit his parents' home and learn about his work in the "Berceau", only a few miles from Dax.
