Anyway, everything to please you, whether for a weekend or more ... believe me, you will be charmed! !

 

Saint Jean de Luz is called in Basque, Donibane Lohitzun. It has a very active fishing port, with an incredible charm. It is very popular with tourists who like to walk there. It is located on the Basque coast, 30 minutes from Biarritz and close to the Spanish border. 




First of all, know that the main street in Saint-Jean-de-Luz is rue Gambetta, a pedestrian street with many shops. A very pleasant street, do not hesitate to get lost in the surrounding alleys.

Here are some ideas for Visit Saint Jean de Luz and its surroundings!

  • The Fort of Socoa

The entrance to Socoa Bay is framed by the Socoa traffic light and the Pointe Sainte-Barbe lighthouse. The bay was defended by the Socoa Fort, built under Louis XIII.

  • The village in front of St Jean de Luz - Ciboure

Ciboure shares the Socoa bay and the fishing port with Saint-Jean-de-Luz. It is the town that is right in front of San Juan de Luz.

  • The residence of King Louis XVII

Louis XIV established his residence there when he married the Infanta Marie-Thérèse in 1660. He still lives and in the same family since its construction in 1643.


You can visit this beautiful house, you will see furniture from the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries, the biblical scenes of its painted beams, its large living room, the bedroom of the Sun King and its wax figures ... Nice.

3) Where to go out in Saint Jean de Luz

Well, I can only advise you to go for a drink at Place Louis XIV. There you will also find the famous house of Louis XIV. For the record, this house was built in 1643.

It is so called because he received Louis XIV for 40 days while he waited for his fiancee, the Infanta María Teresa, to return from Spain. It is also called Casa de la Infanta.

Bands often come to play some pieces.

But you will also find many very nice bars where you can taste cold cuts and oysters. Very nice spending time with friends with a bottle of wine and a game of cards….

In the middle of this square you have a bandstand, where many artists perform, really very nice! Especially outdoors :)
