Should it be spelt Pilat or Pyla ?




"Pilat" from the Gascon "Pilot" means "heap or stack". So when it comes to the dune it is P-I-L-A-T.

Next to the dune is the resort Pyla-sur-Mer. In 1920, its founder Daniel Meller, wanting to give the resort a more elegant and exotic-sounding name, spelled it P-Y-L-A.
