Bourdalat is a commune in the Landes department in Nouvelle-Aquitaine in southwestern France.

Etymology[edit]

Bourdeau is derived from the Germanic bordel, bordeau (old): diminutive of the Frankish (Gallic) borda, "cabane en planche"; According to a popular etymology, the word would have come from the Middle Ages when Saint Louis hid "women of little virtue" (nicknamed the bordelières ) on the banks of the Seine in houses called bordeaux (edge of water).

Geography[edit]

The commune of Bourdalat is located at the eastern end of the Landes department, near the Gers, and in the heart of the Bas-Armagnac, the most famous area of the appellation of the same name.

Hydrography[edit]

The stream of the Gaube , a tributary of the Midou , waters the lands of the commune. Lake Charros is located in the northeast end of the commune.
