About Pyrenees-Atlantiques

The landscape of the Pyrenees-Atlantiques offers much to the holidaymaker. The warm and glittering beaches of the Atlantic coast are perfect for a seaside holiday; further inland, you will find whitewashed villages peppering rugged green rolling hills inhabited by wild horses - the rural idyll of Basque country, and the ideal place for a hiking holiday. Throughout this pleasant and unspoilt region are medieval castles, Romanesque churches and beautiful monasteries. This is Basque country, home to the world's most unique and arcane cultures, and our collection of the best places to stay in Pyrenees-Atlantiques will make you want to stay forever.

Where to stay

The coast

If you're after a seaside holiday then you've come to the right place because the Pyrenees-Atlantiques brims with golden beaches. Strewn along the coastline are towns like Biarritz, Bayonne, Anglet and Saint-Jean-de-Luz. Biarritz is beloved for her beaches, gorgeous 19th century architecture and the beautiful views gained from her coastal path while Bayonne, really a sub-section of Biarritz, is also lovely to visit.

The area along the Atlantic coast is extremely popular with surfers, who come in droves to ride the roaring waves. While in Biarritz be sure to check out the Eglise Saint-Martin, where you'll find the graves of Wellington's soldiers in a spot overlooking the sea.

Saint-Jean-de-Luz has some picturesque villas that are worth checking out, while also boasting more unspoilt beaches than the larger towns. Fish and shellfish are prevalent in the Basque towns along the coast, so expect a lot of fresh seafood!

Inland villages

The real charm of the region lies further inland, the green heartland of Basque country. There are the pretty villages scattered along the Aspe Valley like Saint Engrace, from where you can hike to the Gorges de Kakouetta - beautiful waterfalls in the shadow of high cliffs - which is well worth the effort, particularly for the sublime views. The region stands in the shadow of the Pyrenees mountains and has some of the best hiking spots in all of France, and a great many guided walking tours are on offer.

Green forested hillsides littered with picturesque whitewashed villages define the area, and the pretty villages are often considered to be some of the most beautiful in France. Ainhoa, for example, is a classic example of a Basque village: the centuries-old houses are white with red or green shutters and doors, and in Espelette, you can see chillies hanging out to dry.

Ainhoa is also a great starting point for a hiking holiday: on a hill above the town is an archaic Basque burial site, made up of Celtic-like gravestones. If you're in Basque country, you have to check out a "pottok", an enclosure for the wild horses native to the region. In January, Espellete becomes host to a pottok fair where you can see the horses for yourself.

As you get closer to the Spanish border, you meet places like Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, perfectly-preserved medieval towns strewn along the Saint James pilgrimage route. The area is steeped in history and towns like Navarrenx are wonderful to explore, with her old medieval ramparts and tunnels, while more isolated castles like the Chateau de Montaner offer fully immersive experiences to visitors: the vast polygonal structure, centred around a 36m high keep, is a sight-to-behold in itself, but summer activities like axe-throwing, medieval fayres and battle reenactments occur regularly.

What Not to miss

  • Lounge in the sunshine on the wide and white sand beaches of Biarritz or Saint-Jean-de-Luz!
  • Visit the ramparts and tunnels of the old walled town of Navarrenx.
  • Walk to the Gorges de Kakouetta and marvel at the beauty of the waterfall.
  • Hike through the rolling green farmland of Basque country. Be sure to look out for a "pottok" enclosure of wild horses!
  • Check out the picturesque medieval town of Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, only a few miles from the Spanish border.
  • Visit a traditional Basque village, many of which are considered to be the most beautiful in France, like Ainhoa or Sares.

The Pyrenees-Atlantiques has a diversity of landscape: from rural idyll to seaside paradise, it offers the holidaymaker a great variety of things-to-do, from hiking and history to sunbathing and surfing, and our pick of the best places to stay in Pyrenees-Atlantiques offers a range of hotels that will suit whichever holiday you choose.
