Unimaginably close and brilliantly different is the French area of the Basque Country. We’ll hop across the border and uncover the secrets of this beautiful corner of the world. First stop St Jean de Luz, an elegant coastal town with stunning beaches overlooking a pretty horseshoe bay. We’ll stroll the sun drenched back streets and glimpse inside the Church of Saint Jean Baptiste where King Louis XIV graced the aisle on his wedding day.
Then a short ride to Biarritz the chicest of French towns with a mix up of fashion & surf. We’ll potter the cobbled streets filled with individual French boutiques and hit the market of all markets for cheeses galore, cured meats, fresh oysters, stopping off for a bite to eat. Then off to this spectacular rocky coastline to breathe in the fresh air and get a feel for local life.
Not forgetting the unique town of Hondarribia where the borders meet and it all comes together.
