The Basque Coast
The Basque Coast, the place for all the pleasures ! The Ocean and its atlantique facade ! Close to Spain ! And the gorgeous mountains of the Pyrénées Atlantiques, wild horses and the unique "pottok", huge griffon vultures and shepherds and sheepcheese makers' small "cayolars" !
The Basque Coast, the country of all the pleasures ! The Ocean and its atlantique facade ! Close to Spain ! Sand, surf and sun ! From the estuary of the river Adour, to the spanish border river Bidassoa, 40 km of beaches, and the beautiful towns and villages of Bayonne, Biarritz, Bidard, Guéthary, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Ciboure, Hendaye.... This is for you : landscapes, architecture, traditions, savours and sports like nowhere else !
Go for adventure in the hinterland where you can share the art of life in villages like Hasparren, Cambo, Espelette, Saint-Pée sur Nivelle, Sare and Ascain. And in the Soule and Basse-Navarre provinces, Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, the Iraty mountains and its huge beechforest, and the most fabulous scenic routes...
