Continue your French getaway with a stay in the Basque Country
Close to the border between France and Spain, the sea, beaches, mountains, culinary delights, Basque culture and sports await you!
Get away from it all for a few more days in the Basque country – located between the Pyrenees mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, the Basque Country’s various cities and countryside will captivate you during a relaxing stay between sea and mountains. We suggest a stay following your aspirations to discover a region just as dazzling and special as Bordeaux!
Enjoy the beach and water sports (surfing, stand-up paddle board, etc.) on the Basque Coast in port cities and surf spots such as Biarritz, St. Jean de Luz, or Hendaye.
Visit Biarritz! A seaside resort with a rich heritage, the city attracted Empress Eugenia de Montijo, the wife of Napoleon III, so much so that she had her summer home built here. Bayonne, capital of the Basque country, is a medieval city with atypical architecture and is listed as a town of art and history. You’ll be welcomed inside its chocolate workshops where some of the most delectable delights are made.
Come discover the charms of the Basque countryside, its half-timbered houses with red trim and its culinary delights – taste local produce, visit the quaint villages of Ainhoa or Sare, go hiking on the Rhune, a landmark mountain in the Basque country with a breathtaking panorama.
And last, but not least, near the border of Spain, take advantage and visit San Sebastian, the holiday resort of the kings and queens of Spain; Pamplona, the home of Spanish bull fighting which inspired many of Hemingway’s novels; continue along your way until you reach Bilbao where you’ll have a rare opportunity to visit the famous Guggenheim Museum!
