There is something for everyone, so take out your umbrella and head towards Bidart and its surrounding area.

Stay dry in Bidart, hang out on the sofas at the library, explore the current exhibition at the Pili Taffernaberry Art Gallery, visit the cutlery workshop of Les Couteliers Basques and push open the doors to Moulin de Bassilour.

The sun always comes out after it rains! So take this opportunity to discover the sites and museums of the Basque Country.

On the coast, there is the Musée Basque de Bayonne, Musée de la Mer Aquarium and Cité de l’Océan in Biarritz, Ecomusée Basque Jean Vier in Saint Jean de Luz, Château d’Urtubie and its gardens in Urrugne and Château d’Abbadia in Hendaye.

Inland, discover the Ortillopitz house, the Caves of Sare, the Villa Arnaga in Cambo­les­Bains, the Caves of Isturitz and Oxocelhaya, the Prison des Évêques in Saint Jean Pied de Port and the Hôpital Saint­Blaise Church.

In Ascain, the Akerbeltz brewery and the Lartigue basque linen makers invite you into their workshops.

For movie goers, head towards the cinemas to see the latest films: Le Royal in Biarritz, Mon Ciné in Anglet and Atalante and CGR in Bayonne.

For relaxation, thalassotherapy centres on the Basque coast welcome you in their heated pools and offer a wide range of spa treatments.

For those who love chocolate, a little­known Basque speciality, discover the chocolate trail in Bayonne and for those who are a little bit more curious, the Musée Planète Chocolat in Biarritz is highly recommended.

Take your kids to an indoor playground such as Luziparc in Saint Jean de Luz, Grenadine et Crayonnade or Royal Kids in Anglet as a way of helping them to release their energy and have some fun.
