Hire a van to explore the beautiful city of Saint-Jean-de-Luz in the Basque Country, in the southwest of France.
Saint-Jean-de-Luz is located very close to the ocean. Its gorgeous bay is well-protected by Vauban’s construction of 3 massive walls that stand out on the horizon; they protect the city from the moody Atlantic Ocean and its outbursts. The bay is perfect for water sports such as surfing near Sainte-Barbe or enjoying a good paddle on a Stand Up Paddle or even wind-surfing.
Saint-Jean-de-Luz is a charming town in the southwest of France with a rich history. It hosted a royal wedding in the 1660’s where the main door of the church had been bricked off on the demand of the king Louis XIV after his wedding so that no one would ever be married in his footsteps! Walking through the town and you will discover La Maison Adam and their delicious macarons : a traditional recipe transmitted from father to son since 1660…
Saint-Jean-de-Luz is also known for its portuary and fishing activities. From the port you will admire a magnificent view over La Rhune.
