Crossing to The French Basque area

The French Basque region has got its own identity, posh Biarritz was the European royalty's favourite summer holiday spot and St. Jean de Luz is an enchanting fishing village! Come with us to discover them!

The longest beach of the Basque Country! After a short stroll along the beach promenade, we will depart to Saint Jean de Luz through the beautiful coastal “La Corniche Road”

Former Basque Corsairs’ capital, this small fishing village became rich in the 16th century from fishing and whaling. Piracy, added brought wealth to the town. The ‘finest moment’ for the town was in 1660, when Louis XIV married Marie-Thérèse of Spain in the town church – the Basque church of St John the Baptist

One of the most posh beach resorts of the Basque Coast. It is a luxurious seaside town and is popular with tourists and surfers. Biarritz also boasts some of the best beaches in Europe. Biarritz’s became more renowned in 1854 when Empress Eugenie (the wife of Napoleon III) built a palace on the beach (now the Hôtel du Palais). The British royal family and European royalty regularly took vacations in Biarritz.

One of the most beautiful towns of the Basque Country, it’s medieval old part, is one of the few fortified towns in the Basque Country. Its walls, most of which are still standing and are constantly being restored, give it a special appearance by evoking an epic past and by impregnating every corner, alley and square with aromas, flavors and sounds that take us back to other times. We could also find the typical Basque fishermen houses, with colorful balconies filled up with heaps of flowers.
