When most people think of the Basque country, they think of Spain, however the Basque region comprises of 7 provinces, 3 of which are located in France.
The Basques are an ancient population who inhabited this territory for thousands of years. The French Basque country situated in the South West merges the elegance and luxury of the French with the colour and vibrancy of the Spanish, creating a European paradise. The region features the glamour of Biarritz and Bayonne, whilst also boasting the country wilderness of Landes and the peaks of the Pyrenees Mountains, a mountain range stretching more than 430km and rising higher than 3400m. The golf courses which inhabit this beautiful part of France are renowned for their more traditional nature. Smaller than the norm, these courses, especially by the area of Biarritz, are surrounded by picturesque woodlands and are made ever more challenging due to the Atlantic breeze. An excellent choice for a short golf break in France.
