Biarritz Grande Plage et phare

Destination, the Basque Country

Be warned, this short tour of the Basque Country, from Bayonne to Hendaye through the Basque hills and valleys may make you want to go there for real! The authentic way of life here has hardly changed over the years, with the locals strongly attached to their culture and traditions. It's also a place of colours, especially red and white, often worn for festivals.

And then there's the language like no other: Ongi ettori (Welcome)!
