Golfe de Gascone, a fantastic road trip
Last Summer we made a little road trip which involved fantastic beaches, lovely weather, amazing food and gorgeous landscapes. We visited the Golfe de Gascone. We started in Saint Jean de Luz. It’s a great place but it’s so full of people that it can be a little overwhelming. I loved the pastel striped beach tents! There were fantastic shops (Isabel Marant and Repetto shoes lovers, I’m talking to you) and nice reataurants. And Biarrittz, what can I say? It’s one of my favourite places in the world. So chic, so decadent, so elegant… Our next stop was Zarautz. Here you must try the grilled fish. Just eat and sunbathe with a good book, that’s all you need to do, you’re on vacation, right? And last but not least: Getaria. You can even walk from Zarautz, they are really close and there is a wonderful walk by the sea. Getaria is a tiny village with a wonderful port. We visited the Balenciaga Museum. I was a little disappointed: the lightning of the museum was awful, it was almost impossible to see, let alone admire, the little details of the collection! Afterwards we headed to the port to have a nice drink, so I forgot my disappointment! It was a lovely road trip and I highly recommend it. The best thing about it is that you can do it during a weekend or splurge on a whole week because distances are not that long. It depends on how long you want to stay in every wonderful village. There are thousands of secret places to be discovered!
