This itinerary traces a path through Pays Basque (Basque Country), a region of France that has always fiercely guarded and preserved its unique character. Seven Basque provinces straddle the western border between France and Spain; three in France: Labourd, Basse-Navarre, and Soule, and four in Spain: Biscaye, Guipuzcoa, Navarre, and Alava. The area, stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to the start of the Pyrenees, abounds with beautiful landscapes—sandy beaches, old whaling villages, picturesque ports, beautiful valleys sliced by winding rivers, rolling green hills, and snow-capped mountains. The landscape is enhanced by distinctive architecture, which varies from province to province.
NOTE: This itinerary is excerpted from the E-Book titles, France Hotels: Exceptional Places to Stay & Itineraries and France Bed & Breakfasts: Exceptional Places to Stay & Itineraries. You might want to consider the complete E-Books if you are considering any additional itineraries as there are fourteen for France and they are all duplicated in the more complete E-Books.
This E-Itinerary includes only recommendations (also excerpted from both the E-Book titles) for places to stay that are in close proximity to this featured itinerary route. This E-itinerary version has the added bonus that includes places we recommend from both France Hotels and France Bed & Breakfasts.
