Saint-Jean-de-Luz is a seaside resort in the south-west of France, and is ideal for families. Thanks to the bay running from Ciboure to Saint-Jean-de-Luz, the beaches offer great swimming without the risk of choppy waters. Strolls along the bay to the Socoa dyke are also possible. For a stay in typical Basque red and white, you are in the right place!
Take your pick of activities during your stay in Saint-Jean-de-Luz
The Basque Country has a very distinct culture that is very appealing. Your stay will be spiced up with gastronomy, sports, activities and local traditions. Plan your stay in Saint-Jean-de-Luz as you wish:
Gastronomy - Buy your seafood and fish in the Halles before grilling them a la plancha, taste the famous Basque cake (with black cherry or almond cream), try a piece of tomme de brebis on a nice slice of bread with black cherry jam...
Sport - People in the south-west like their rugby. During your stay in Urrugne you can try all kinds of water sports (e.g. sailing, surfing, stand-up paddleboarding, etc...). But the sport the area is best known for is the Basque pelota! Do try and get to a game.
Activities - Take the time to visit the surrounding towns of Biarritz, Bayonne and Espelette, but also San Sebastian in Spain which is less than 40 minutes' drive from your holiday rental in Urrugne. It's well worth the detour! There are also beautiful walks in the Basque countryside or in the Pyrenees.
