The coastal towns of the Basque Country.
Green lung of the Basque coast, Anglet is a sample of the whole Basque Country. To you the pleasures of the ocean and the beach, the emotions of international renown surf spots, the beauty of typical architecture from the 19th and 20th centuries, the euphoria of basque and gascon cultural summer events. To find more calm, take a few steps from the beach and discover the forest of Pignada, a forest in the heart of the city, very popular among walkers and sportsmen.
Further south, stop at Saint Jean de Luz and discover the fishing port, the remarkable monuments of the 17th century, such as the Saint-Jean-Baptiste church where Louis XIV married the Infanta of Spain, the Louis XIV house in which the monarch stayed on the occasion of the wedding, the Haraneder home, the former home of Anne of Austria... Notice to campers passionate about history!
Facing the bay of Saint Jean de Luz, Ciboure is a small Basque seaside resort with a remarkable historical heritage: the convent, the cloister and the Récollets chapel, the Maison Ravel (the only Dutch-style house in the region) which today hosts the Tourist Office, the lighthouse Amont of neo labourdin style, the fort of Socoa (17th century), the Art Déco villa Leïhorra and its gardens, the fishermen's district...
Then go along the Basque Corniche to Handaye, a step that the campsite recommends you before arriving to Spain. After walking through the historic center, considered as the cradle of neo-Basque architecture, continue your visit towards the beach and discover the pediment of Hendaye where we practice the cesta punta and the ball with bare hands. Before leaving, do not miss out the impressive Abbadia Castle, located at the north of the city.
Now, nothing prevents you from going to Spain in a few minutes. A short getaway to San Sebastian perhaps and the opportunity to swim on the beach La Concha, the favorite of Queen María Cristina!
