The Basque coast is a source of regional pride, and has been popular for centuries with its dramatic plunging scenery, seaside resorts with smart villas and surfing since 1956.
It is also famous for the Basque art de vivre and culture: the white, red and green colours of the Basque flag brighten everything up from etxe (houses) to sukaldaritza (culinary arts).
Bayonne, Anglet and Biarritz form a dynamic built-up area, in terms of culture and business events. The coast and villages in Basque valleys feature a host of treasures: hiking trails, golf courses with splendid views, luxurious bed & breakfast places, tasty regional produce etc.
