Areas in French Basque Country

When to go

You’ll have the best weather between June and September, when temperatures average 25°C. If your trip happens to fall in July, be sure to visit Bayonne for its annual Basque Festival.

Getting there

  • Planes

    Fly direct into the French Basque Country’s main airport, Biarritz – a 20-minute drive from Bayonne. From there, you can easily travel around the region by car or train.
  • Trains

    There’s a high-speed train between Paris and Hendaye, with stops in Saint-Jean-de-Luz and Biarritz. Once you’re there, most of the surrounding towns have small train stations for easy day-trips.
  • Automobiles

    If you’re planning on venturing further afield you’ll need a car, pick up a set of wheels at Biarritz airport.
