back roads of basque country

  • Discover
  • Highlights

Take a ride on the back roads of the Basque country to discover daily life of the  Basques: local traditions, learn how the succulent country ham of Bayonne is made , stop at a dairy farm to see and taste genuine ewe milk cheeses and discover a local vineyard to taste the less well-known but superb wine called Irouléguy  and visit a workshop where renowned Basque fabrics are made.

You may have the good fortune to watch a Basque Pelota game and to enjoy Basque chants.

Discover Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, once part of the Spanish province of Navarra, and known as an important  pilgrimage stop to Santiago de Compostela, the charming village of Espelette, known for its dried red peppers, displayed on the façade of many houses to dry and used in the Basque cuisine, stop in Sare listed as ‘one of the most beautiful villages in France’’. With its large pelota court, shaded streets and fine church with wooden galleries, Sare is a wonderful place for a buccolic stroll. Sare also hosts a major prehistoric site

End the tour in the most picturesque French Basque village, Ainhoa, a real gem composed of red, dark green and white houses, a typical Basque church and its graveyard filled with traditional disc-topped burial stones.
