Domaine d'Esperbasque is equidistant from both the Pyrenees and the Atlantic Ocean (both around 45mins drive away). The Bearn and Basque countryside boasts some stunning scenery and makes for a great hiking / biking trip. The lovely spa town of Salies-de-Béarn boasts several great restaurants, a golf course, and Salt Museum. The gorgeous colonial Spanish border city of Pamplona is just under 2 hour's drive away. For the slightly unhinged, the San Fermin Festival's world-famous 'running of the bulls' takes place every July 6th–14th. For those who don't manage to escape unscathed, the healing holy shrine of Lourdes is also just over an hour away.
Food & Drink
In high season, the local baker comes with freshly-baked baguettes and croissants every day. During low season, Marianne makes her own bread. There's also pizza night once a week and nightly dinners varying from Indian to local French cuisine. You can buy lots of lovely local produce onsite too. The pick of the local options is La Belle Auberge (0033 559 38 15 28), a charming rural hotel and restaurant in the surrounding village of Castagnède. You can get 2 courses plus plenty of delicious sides for only €26. For refined regional cuisine, head for chic restaurant Les Voisins (0033 559 38 01 79) in Salies-de-Béarn. It's a little pricier than some of the other local eateries, but worth every penny. Marianne's neighbour, Lapeyre Guilhemas, also makes wonderful wine – pop next door for a visit and a glass or two. The region is also famous for its foie gras and pâté with around 90% of artisan duck farms residing here in southwest France.
