In the surrounding areas

SARE : The “Petit Train de la Rhune” is located in the town of Sare, one of “the most beautiful villages in France” 10km from Saint Jean de Luz.
As the proverb goes, “Saran Astia” means : ” In Sare we have plenty of time”. This village of the Labourd region, situated only 15km from the coast is worthy of a stop for a few moments, just the time needed to breath inthe authentic air, here where life has a perfectly true flavour.

Napoleon III and Eugenie, Winston Churchill, Pierre Loti, Luis Mariano, etc, all loved the authentic Basque feel of this village.

The red half-timbered, white houses, some of which date from the 16th century, and the so generously green first massif of the Pyrenees, invite you for a stroll to savour the beauty, authenticity and rarity of this site.
Visitors are taken in by the generous gastronomy and array of festivities offered at this location.
