Hostelling International Tripbook for

The Basque Country (France)

9 Entries

The Basque Country, France, is a region of picturesque villages, rolling hills and rugged Atlantic coastline. Stay at one of our hostels here and you'll find yourself riding the waves in the morning, strolling through an endearing cobblestone village in the afternoon and sitting down to some mouth-watering local cuisine in the evenings. Fiercely independent locals speak their own language rather than French and take pride in their unique Basque culture and traditions. Grand hotels line the ocean fronts and colourful timbered houses, elegant boutiques and charming cafés are plentiful in the towns. Head to Anglet or Biarritz to surf with pros and amateurs alike - fed by the Bay of Biscay, the tubular waves offer some of the best surfing in Europe in an idyllic setting of sandy beaches and rocky outcrops. As well as this, you can explore the wild forests, the magnificent Pyrenees Mountains and the historical landmarks.
