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.

There were just 2 of us so it felt very luxurious indeed to have a bathroom each! Lots of info in the book left for guests, many English books on the shelf, English-speaking DVDs, family and adult. Many items to amuse and occupy any kids you might have brought along with you! It's very close to the town and beach. A visit to Les Halles essential if you're doing any catering in the amazingly well equipped kitchen (lovely Siemens oven, hob and dishwasher + easy to use washing machine and dryer). Biarritz is a fabulous town and we enjoyed a visit to the Chocolate Museum too. Only one head-scratcher for me, as Head Cook: I found that a couple of the pans provided didn't work on the induction hob. An excellent place to stay for a week. Thanks Angela and Nicholas!

Although we arrived in mid-September, the weather was very good and we enjoyed the beaches, restaurants and generally relaxed lifestyle that Biarritz has to offer. The apartment was very well equipped and maintained. Great holiday, this was the second time we have been.
