Book an apartment in the historic neighbourhood of Bayonne; visit the Sainte-Marie cathedral, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site in the scope of the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage route. Tourism in Bayonne follows the rhythm of the Ferias and the town's bullring, which can seat more than 10,000 aficionados; makes Bayonne the oldest bullfighting town in France.
Bayonne is also a paradise for gourmets with a cuisine that includes Basque, French and Spanish influences. In the many restaurants and bodegas of the old town, you will be able to sample its famous ham and the Espelette pepper. Bayonne is also famous for its chocolate, which was imported from Spain during the 16th century.
There is nothing better than renting a furnished apartment in Biarritz or a chambre d'hôtes in Anglet to have a relaxing break on the beach less than 10 kilometres from Bayonne. Take a holiday in the Pyrénées Atlantiques, rent a house on the Basque coast and enjoy the famous beaches and surfing spots on the coast such as Anglet, Biarritz, Bidart, Guéthary and Ciboure.
