Let us introduce you to the people and places of the storied Basque Country, a grand old region of lively produce markets and elegant old towns, of sunny vineyards and lush green hills.


The Basque Country is varied enough to have interest all year round; its vibrant cities and mild coastal weather favour trips deep into winter. Of course, the Cantabrian sea and its Atlantic fronts keep us on our toes with the ever-present possibility of rain. But it’s to this precipitation that we owe the rich greens of the beautiful landscapes.
