Not far from the Spanish border, in the heart of the Basque country, the town of Bayonne enjoys a unique historical and cultural heritage. Officially recognised as a “Town of Art and History” in 2012, the subprefecture of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department is steeped in charm. The city walls, the Château-Vieux or the Basque Museum are just some of the authentic treasures that you really should find time to discover during your campsite stay in Bayonne. Known to all for its age-old traditions such as the famous Basque game of pelota, the Courses Landaises, corridas and of course the Basque fêtes, this is also a town that will delight foodies young and old. So as you tread its magical streets, call into a local restaurant with its red and white flag to sample the renowned Gâteau Basque, Bayonne ham or succumb to the enticing scent of one of its many chocolate-makers. A camping holiday in Aquitaine is the perfect moment to offer your taste buds a real treat!
And back at your 4 or 5 star Sandaya campsite, a host of other activities await: so after a busy day riding the Atlantic waves, enjoy the open-air swimming pools for a mellow moment of relaxation in the sunshine. You love an active start to the day? Try a touch of sport to get you up and moving! Make it a date for an aquagym lesson in the covered and heated swimming pool or head for the multisports ground and a football tournament. In the shade of the pine trees challenge the family to a game of pétanque or have a fun knock-about on the tennis court! Your youngsters will particularly appreciate all the activities offered in the campsite’s free mini clubs. It’s already time for bed, so choose where yours will be from amongst our mobile home, chalet and cottage rental options!
