Saint Jean de Luz

port-de-plaisance-saint-jean-de-luzSaint-Jean-de-Luz (in Basque  Donibane Lohizune) is a medium-sized town (14000 inhabitants) that has maintained  its authenticity. One of its advantages  is its geographical situation, along the Atlantic ocean and at the foot of the Pyrenees. That living environment permanently encourages  to enjoy the beaches and practise mountain hiking, activities  benefiting from the sweetness of the climate.

Another important advantage is its town centre, with its exceptional  urban heritage. The inevitable efforts to modernize it  overtime have never altered the past architectural heritage, particularly the one from the  XVII century. The two treasures from that period are  the Infant  house  and  Louis XIV house. Two names in memory of  an event we would say today European, the marriage of Louis XIV with the Infant of Spain in 1660 which widely  contributed to the national and international fame of the city.

This historical environment gives a very particular character to  this concentrated  urban centre which is also, all year round, the most visited  place in the south of Aquitania. But Saint Jean-de-Luz has two major assets : its port and its bay. The first  is an element that  strongly attracts visitors. The second is unic : it is the only sheltered natural harbour between Arcachon and Spain. « A convenience » appreciated by the swimmers ;  a natural treasure which can be admired from the top of Sainte Barbe hill.

We could also mention the very attractive Gambetta street, famous for its permanent sales promotion, weekends included. Which keeps bringing visitors from France and foreign countries, far beyond the usual summer period
