A land of culture and tradition, the Basque Country will amaze you with its authenticity. Located between the ocean and the mountains, you will find that the Basque Country is a region with a strong identity, boasting its own language, music, songs, dances and unique sports: Basque pelota, games of strength, etc. You will also be pleasantly surprised by its gourmet specialities, and you will find it hard to resist the flavour of its ham, its excellent chocolate and the sweetness of the Basque cakes.
Why not explore its wonderful heritage, visiting some of its emblematic sites? Less than 10 km from our residence, Bayonne is a true concentration of the Basque Country. Here, you can admire the ramparts, the medieval ruins, the castles and the beautiful cathedral of Sainte-Marie. A little further afield, visit Espelette, the "pepper capital", or Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, which cannot fail to charm, with its pink walls, medieval lanes and beautiful citadel.
