General

  • Family-run site in the Basque Country between mountains and sea
  • Adjoined to a working farm and with spectacular views
  • Communal area, games room and playground

You might not be able to say the name of Camping Etchemendigaraya in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques part of the Basque Country, but that'll probably be because you'll be tongue-tied when you see its spectacular views.

This lovely little site adjoined to a working farm is an oh so peaceful place, in a secluded setting surrounded by comely countryside on the edge of the Laka river. It's shaded by oak trees and has spacious green pitches.

No entertainment or bar here, just the sound of the countryside all around and a warm welcome from the friendly family team… The well-kept facilities include an amenities block with sinks, showers, toilets and dishwashing sinks; a washing machine; a playground; a big communal area, and a games room with table football, ping pong and board games.

Hot water and electricity are both available on site.

Please note

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Good views of hills all round the site. Pitches are large, on grass and mostly in the shade. The site is blessed with no swimming pool so noisy families do not hang around all day. Campers go out and do things. The communal room has facilities for cooking and eating, all free. There are several 4 hour mountain walks within a twenty minute drive.

    Disliked: 

    During the fly season take a spray. We caught 300 flies in one day on a flypaper. They disappear around 8pm to allow for a fly free evening meal.

    1) Communal meal- with farms lamb, cheese and yogurt, great value, lovely way to mix with fellow campers and delicious!! sign up if if at all possible, shop sold local produce.
    2)Farm tour, Bruno showed our daughter round on her own tour as we weren't staying long enough for scheduled one.
    3) Free washing machine ( even washing liquid!!)- and loan of clothes horse to dry washing in the communal eating area during heavy thunderstorm
    4) Views from campsite and general area...best spaced pitches of our entire trip
    5) Arnold, his family and all employees were all very friendly, helpful and went above and beyond throughout our stay. Kitchen area/ games room and all facilities were well maintained and always clean.

    Disliked: 

    Flies - but apparently a bad year for them, and obviously no fault of the campsite.

    Everything. The location is fantastic. Peaceful, tranquil and if you're after a quiet relaxing break then this campsite delivers in every way. Bruno and family are charming, helpful and very attentive when needed. The site has everything we look for, grass pitch (the grass could do with a cut maybe but it didn't really matter), views, space, shade, sun, excellent showers - hot and powerful, clean washing and washing up facilities and a washing machine - with no queue to use any of it. Love it here and can't recommend it highly enough.
    Signage is a little hidden. Don't pull into the field off the main road (as we did) thinking it was the right site! We nearly drove back to England!!! Keep an eye out for four white posts (red reflectors) and a small green sign saying Bachoc. Easily missed.

Amazing family site with friendly owners 06/18/2018

Reviewer's country: Portugal Samantha M. Confirmed

  • Power optional grass site

  • Liked: 

    It is a beautiful location with farm animals and a rural peaceful setting., Nicest people running the site that you could possibly ever meet. Perfect for families with plenty of space to play football, have a run around or just relax.

    It was really bad weather when we stayed so we didn't get the chance to explore that much.

    Loved the lockable fridge with your own little fridge that was free. It made a great little touch. Plus we love to cook when camping and it makes it much easier to keep things fresh and know that no one else has access to your food. I wish this was on all campsites :) (see pics below)

    Internet is okay but not amazing which is expected for the setting.

    Disliked: 

    The price is a little expensive compared to similar campsites we have stayed on that had more facilities. But would still visit again.

Directions


Local attractions

Coves, cliffs and sandy beaches are located within easy reach of Camping Etchemendigaraya in the nearby towns of Anglet, Saint Jean de Luz, Biarritz and Hendaye for beachy walks, sunbathing, swimming and surfing.

Around the countryside, the old village, cobbled streets and medieval estates of Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port are definite musts (have a look at the town in the site pics); it's on the St James's Way pilgrimage route too for those who fancy a highly scenic wander.

Gourmet fairs are held in town too; if events are your thing, get along also to the Basque Country festivals like those in Bayonne and Pamplona, the Espelette pepper party day (ask the Camping Etchemendigaraya team for details) and the Itxassou cherry festival.

Getting active, many mountain trails are accessible from the site, or you could soar above this spectacular landscape on a paragliding afternoon from Mount Baigura.
