Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Pays Basque Interieur, Aquitaine, France your home away from home

The Pays Basque Interieur is an area in Southern France, whose long history has shaped the culture, identity and lifestyles of the region’s inhabitants infallibly. The countryside of the Pays Basque Interieur is beautiful, with mountains, valleys and rolling foothills crossed with idyllic streams and gushing mountain rivers. The are actually an enormous wealth of attractions to enjoy from a Pays Basque Interieur holiday rental villa, especially those with an interest in culture and lifestyles of other parts of the world, or simply those who love unspoilt nature.

Things to do in Pays Basque Interieur, France

The rich culture of the Pays Basque Interieur is a joy to indulge in. The cuisine is absolutely unique, serving hearty, rustic, pepper-infused meals while the sporting events in the region are totally unlike the sports of other regions. Basque games including Pelote are extremely popular, and those who love rugby will be right at home, as rugby is a vastly popular sport in the Pays Basque Interieur. The huge concrete courts you see around the region are used for playing pelota, a game vaguely similar to fives, but inherently much more dangerous. The Basque games are usually tests of strength, much like Gaelic Games, with tug-o-wars, sawing trees and cart turning. The Basque language is also still a large feature of life in the Pays Basque, widely spoken and the only language on many road signs.

Those interested in exploring both the culture and the countryside of the Pays Basque could not be better placed in a self catering Pays Basque Interieur holiday rental villa. There are a huge range of trails through the peaks, valleys and high plains of the Pays Basque, accessible on foot, by horse or on mountain bike. There are many excellent guided trails to enjoy, taking visitors to the hidden Basque villages of the mountains, thriving markets and finest views, all with the infinite knowledge of a local guide at your disposal. The crystal clear mountain streams that have carved this landscape are teeming with fish, and the Pays Basque Interieur offers some of the best fishing in southern France. Permits are available from the Tabacs (local shops) in the region. The unspoilt, wild landscapes are filled with animal life, and birds of prey can often be seen whilst you travel the unbeaten tracks of the Pays Basque Interieur.

Sebastien, the guy with his controlling - the - world - device (ask him!) has helped us even with the car :-) But owners are not the house. The house is new, very clean, spacious, full of everything you need. Pool is not very big so if you need to train your olympic skills choose bigger but this one is enough for children. Remember that you're coming to the real village (flies!). Beautiful mountains, lovely villages, great wines, ocean and fashionable Biarritz nearby - what more do you need? Ask Sebastien for restaurant and take a walk to the Pecoitz Restaurant in Aincille - great food but they don't speak English. I could recommend this place to everyone except my enemies.

It is a very old basque house with a very polite basque owner and a lots of traditionell basque tools. It is stay on a hill with panoramic view. The owner gave a lots of guide about Basque.
