La Bastide Clairence and the Basque Country

The village of La Bastide Clairence, situated in the heart of the Basque Country, near the Spanish border, is voted one of the most beautiful villages in France. It is an artisan village with many craft workshops and the village has an ancient Israelite cemetery. Nearby are the picture-perfect villages of Cambo-les-Bains, Espelette, Ainhoa and Sare to name but a few. The Basque Country is still largely unspoilt and a fascinating and beautiful region. The coastline is famous for its excellent surfing conditions and sandy beaches and there are many beautiful towns such as Biarritz, St. Jean de Luz, Bayonne, etc. The countryside inland is spectacular, very reminiscent of New Zealand, with rolling hills and the backdrop of the snow-covered Pyrenees. The traditional Basque houses and farmhouses are beautiful and wood and shutters are always in the Basque colours of ox-blood red, blue or green.

The Basque cuisine is something to be experienced, especially the delicious specialities such as 'piquillos farcies' and 'pintxos' and fresh fish. The restaurants are always of a high standard but also very reasonable.

The Basques are a proud people and they have many different festivals celebrating Basque traditions and music. Every village has a fronton where the Basque game of Pelote is played.

On the Spanish side, the towns of San Sebastian and Bilbao are extremely rich in culture and San Sebastian has the most Michelin starred restaurants in Europe. Pamplona is also just a day trip from La Bastide Clairence.

In short, the Basque Country has something to offer for everyone and is well worth exploring. You are sure to return.

An exceptional house in peaceful setting

5 of 5
We were delighted with and impressed by this modern Basque house. The well fitted kitchen / living area contributed to a very relaxed week. Bedrooms, bathroom and ample storage space upstairs were beautifully decorated. We enjoyed our aperitifs on the terrace. Brigitte and her husband were a charming couple who made us feel very welcome were very helpful throughout our stay. Its peaceful location at the end of the access road to this part of the countryside meant the only noise we heard was the mooing of cows. This was an excellent location tour from which to tour the Pays Basque region. St Jean de Luz, Biarritz, Bayonne, St Jean Pied de Port are all within easy reach. If you want to explore this area you couldn't do any better. Keith and Diane Wright (Scotland)

We got lost in Bilbao so phoned to advise late arrival. They were charmingly sympathetic. Joining instructions were clear. Site was enchanting. Accommodation excellent. They suggested the restaurant attached to the site which turned out delicious if a little pricey but it was first class.
