Basque Country

The Basque Coast offers a unique charm with its villages by the ocean, its legendary surf spots and its relaxed atmosphere.

On the mountain side, some villages are part of the "Most beautiful villages of France" collection and will be the starting point for many walks with breathtaking views.

The Basque Country is also a culture rich in traditions and a strong identity with the "férias" and its gastronomy.
