San Juan de Luz
Located in a moon-shaped bay with a beautiful fine sandy beach.
The beautiful old town is made up of Basque style houses, many of the buildings date back to the 17th century. Saint Jean de Luz was one of the most important fishing ports in France and the base for Basque corsairs during the peak of piracy in the 17th century.
The Egiategia Winery, although it is very simple, it stands out for the technique of fermentation of wine under the Cantabrian Sea, which makes your wine has a needle point due to the blows of the rough sea.
The Market with its stalls selling fish, vegetables, bakery products and many varieties of cheese, this is the ideal place to discover all the ingredients that make Basque gastronomy so famous.
Enjoy the atmosphere in Biarritz which stands out for being a curious mixture, in a good sense of the word. The city is formed mostly by bourgeois houses and mansions, used by the wealthy as summer retreats. The touch of luxury is balanced between the more relaxed and carefree surf culture, which in Biarritz has a long tradition.
Hotel San Sebastian
The Hotel San Sebastian is located in the exceptional area of Ondarreta, just a few metres from the beach. This recently-refurbished hotel offers guests all the latest conveniences.
