In Aquitaine at the confines of the Landes and the pays Basque, welcome to your charming bed and breakfast in Bayonne (64). Here in Bayonne a festive ambience reigns, thanks to the multitude of bars and bodegas in the Petit Bayonne, the liveliest area of the town. During your bed and breakfast break in Bayonne, visit the historic old town with its tall houses with their blood-red half-timbering and don’t miss the Cathedral Sainte-Marie and its gothic cloisters and the impressive collections in the Musée basque et de l’Histoire de Bayonne, the local history museum. And with the kids, take the chance of your stay in Bayonne, birthplace of chocolate in France, to visit the l’Atelier du chocolat museum. And it’s in Bayonne that on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday of Holy Week that the foire au jambon ham fair, is held, to which the town gave its name, which you will no doubt sample at a guest meal in your bed and breakfast. Bayonne is also the oldest bullfighting town in France and in summer, the temporada (bullfights) get into full swing. And for the brave, you can ‘run with the bulls’, the encierro, in the streets of the town. Here rugby is a national sport as well as the pelote basque. With Samedi Midi, book your bed and breakfast holiday in Bayonne and immerse yourself in the traditions of the Pays Basque.
