Basque Country Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations

The French Basque country, flanking the Pyrenees and the Bay of Biscay, stretches between the Adour and Bidassoa rivers, combining ocean, mountain and forest in equal parts. It is composed of three provinces, Labourd (from Biarritz to Hendaye and Rhune Mountain), Basse Navarre in the middle and Soule to the East (next to Béarn), and has a strong identity linked to its language, traditions and blood ties. Take the time to explore this colourful, picturesque region as you watch a game of pelota and admire the lovely wooden framework houses.
