Located in the Pyrénées- Atlantiques département of southwestern France, the Basque settlement of Bidarray is less of a typical village and more of a sprawling collection of lovely hamlets sprinkled with farmsteads. Bidarray hotels make an excellent base for touring the country via a classic ridge walk of the Basque which heads south along the Crête d'Iparla, before turning east to descend into St-Étienne-de-Baïgorry. This lengthy hike is best undertaken in good weather in order to fully appreciate the views of the peaks and valleys along with abundant wildlife.
EasyToBook.com offers a variety of hotels in Bidarray which allow visitors to plan a relaxing vacation at a clean and hospitable property. During your stay, enjoy walks along the River Bastan and its confluence with the River Nive, drinking a bottle of local Irulegi wine at a quaint café, or posing for pictures atop the medieval bridge with a castle in the background. Plan on visiting the Eglise de Bidarray, a lovely Romanesque church which features a Baroque retable, for a quiet place to reflect amongst the beauty of its interior.
