Pays Basque and Pyrenees

 

 

The Pyrenees cut across southwest France from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic coast (GR10 is a great way of getting to know this amazing natural environment). Along the way you will find great places such as the citadel of Montségur on top of a rocky hill, the pilgrimage center of Lourdes, Pau in the Béarn country or the Basque port of Bayonne.

This great mountain range, a paradise for walkers, includes some of the best natural places in France. The Parc National des Pyrénées, Iraty Forest or the Parc Naturel Régional des Pyrénées Ariégeoises are great examples. Gavarnie or Troumouse offer some of the most spectacular sights.

Lovers of quiet and picturesque villages will be rewarded by St-Bertrand-de-Comminges,Aïnhoa, St-Jean-de-Luz, Sauvaterre-de-Béarn and many more….
