Saint-Jean-de-Luz is an authentic town with a particularly fascinating past and a fishing harbour overlooked by splendid mansions and beautiful neo-Basque villas. Most of the streets are pedestrianised.
For shopping fans, it's paradise: the colourful little boutiques have it all, from the latest fashion must-haves to traditional crafts. On Place Louis XIV, painters exhibit their artworks around the bandstand. It's not uncommon for a Basque choir to come and provide entertainment at aperitif or coffee time.
Hotel Les Orangeries, to feel good… sustainably

The first "EU Ecolabel" certified hotel in France and a pioneer of sustainable tourism, Les Orangeries experiments with a new, more sustainable way of life: a gastronomic restaurant serving locally sourced organic food, a cellar full of natural wines... It was a top pick in the Guide 2018 Origine Nature, which promotes restaurants that value biodiversity and their region's land and produce.
