What other part of France can boast of having such an identity?
Here, there is the language, a particular climate, unique landscapes, cult products, a gastronome table, a perennial culture, an original urbanism… Here are some excerpts from what awaits you!
Our small picturesque village of about 1300 inhabitants is located on the outskirts of France and Spain. Leaning against the «Xoldokogaina» mountain, Biriatou offers a stunning view of the Bidassoa valley and the Spanish mountains facing it.
Originally district of Urrugne, Biriatou became an independent community in 1603. During the wars of the revolution and under the empire, Biriatou experienced incessant movements of troops. During the Spanish Civil War and the Battle of Irun in 1936, the village served as an observation site.
Jorge Semprún’s affection for the village
Several hiking trails leave the village, including the famous GR 10 that joins the lake and the Ibardin pass.
Add to this 10 golf courses within a 20 km radius, the beaches at 6 km, where there are 5 thalassotherapy centers, and also the possibility to practice a multitude of water sports…
Finally, Biriatou is only 2 km from the motorway connecting Saint-Jean de Luz (10 km), Biarritz (25 km) and San Sebastian in Spain (25 km). And a few kilometres from the typical Spanish villages.
An ideal holiday destination for discovering major natural sites and Basque cultural heritage.
