Pays Basque

Expanding on the territory of both countries with remarkable identity, France and Spain, the Basque Country reveals itself entire and proud of its authencity. Majestic on the west side where it meets the Atlantic ocean and in the south where the Pyrénées’ peaks forme a natural border between the French and the Spanish sides, and bucolic and serene over the valleys like green carpets unfold in its entirety. The Basque Country possesses a pure charm and expresses with three colours which constitute its flag: white, green and red.
In the dip of the 6 km long Golfe de Gascogne*, that greets the sea winds, the daring waves and their true fans, the Biarritz’ coast looks like a lace embroidered by rocks. Called « the queen of the beaches and the beach of kings », in the 19th century it becomes the historical capital of the European surf and place of excellence for practicing water sports.
Adorned by a nobel spirit, in the Middle Ages Biarritz welcomes the marriage of Aliénor d’Aquitaine avec Henry Plantagenêt, in the 19th century- the head of the european aristocracy around Empress Eugénie and Napoléon III, after the Russian revolution- a close circle of friends around the royal family and a myriad of cinema, literature and fashion stars among the others Vladimir Nabokov and Coco Chanel.
To walk on the narrow alley in the very heart of the city and to admire its immortal architecture, to take the seacoastline with its bordered by cliffs heavenly decoration, under the changing sky, to revel the traditional basque dishes during a dinner under the nocturnal light and cradled by the waves or simply to exercise your swing on the Golf de Biarritz Le Phare in a good company, these are only few moments of pleasure to which we would like to invite you !


Within one hour’s drive from Bordeaux in the northwest direction, the Atlantic ocean penetrates inside the Landes ? and formes a true small « sea », the Bay of Arcachon. Exposed to a moderate climate with an prolonged sunshine period through the year, it offers its serenity to the heavenly resorts located along the water. The city of Arcachon which has given the name breaths the pine tree scents coming from the near forest and the fresh sea air. Contemplate the stunnung views and enjoy the enchantment of the villas with outstanding architecture, take a trip by ship surrounding the Ile aux Oiseax* and the wooden cabins « planted » in the water and finally savour the freshness of the oysters- some pleasures the should be obligatory before to undertake another trip to :


Cap Ferret
With its unic geographical location, between the Côte d‘Argent* on the Atlantic ocean on the west side and the Bay of Arcachon on the east side, and with its pure sea charm, Cap Ferret possesses a great reputation of a seaside resort since Napoleon’s time. It is a kind of amalgam that melts the spectacular panoramas projected from the Point at Cap to the natural parc Banc d’Arguin and to the Olympian golden sand mountain Dune du Pyla. In these surroundings identified by a refined and authentic ambience, the lovers of sea flavours will find true treasures : freshly caught fish and seafood are to be tasted in the charmful waterfront restaurents.
