Every year the banks of the Seine turn into a summer beach called Paris Plage. A preview of the fun to expect!
I think the most telling thing about the region is what it’s called: Pays-Basque, or Basque Country. I like to think it’s a little dig to the Netherlands (Pays-Bas), like hey–one region in France has just as much as your whole country! But Pays-Basque really does have quite a lot to offer.
