The delights of the French coast can be found within a short distance from Vitoria. Tiny and lovely fishing villages like Saint Jean de Luz, where time seems to have stopped centuries ago, or nice villages on the beach such as Biarritz where people from all around the world spend their summer enjoying the Basque gastronomy and surf in the same town. Since we arrived in Spain nearly 2 weeks ago, we have participated in several tours as we traveled across Spain. Best trip through various areas of Basque!

Vitoria-Gasteiz is the seat of government and the capital city of the Basque Country and of the province of Araba/Álava in northern Spain. It holds the autonomous community's House of Parliament, the headquarters of the Government, and the Lehendakari's (Prime Minister's) official residency. Geography. Saint-Jean-de-Luz bay is a natural harbour in the south-east of the Bay of is the only sheltered bay between Arcachon and to its strong sea walls or dykes that protect the town from the full savagery of the Atlantic Ocean, it has become a favorite for bathers across the Basque Coast. Although the seaside resort is relatively recent, the port itself is.

The three Basque provinces of Nouvelle-Aquitaine have much to offer. Gillian Thornton explores this unique corner of southwest France. Dinner at Port Vieux in Biarritz is an experience to savour – not just for my plate of delicious fresh sea bream on the al fresco terrace at L’Arena, but for the free light show that goes with it. On a warm September evening, I’m watching the sun sink.
