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.

    What a wonderful stay at this lovely family farm…
    Being a female travelling by myself, it was critical for me to find places along the way where I would feel safe and secure with a touch of natural beauty.
    The farm has met all my criteria making me extend my stay from 2 to 4 nights.
    I have been welcomed by the family and mainly Bruno who has been the kindest owner I have met through all my travels. He is always happy to answer any question, suggesting things to do in the area which would meet your desires as he has the gift of being a good listener :).
    The farm is spacious enough to have enough privacy and also attracts people from different background but with 1 common taste, a beautiful set up in nature with a panoramic view. I had lovely conversations with people from France, Spain and Cuba also staying and appreciating quietness and natural sounds as much as I do.
    The farm is set up in total synchronicity with the nature surrounding it, respecting ecological criteria with a highlight of having very clean facilities included (toilets/showers/kitchen).
    I have enjoyed watching the sunset over these hills making it an inspiring place for me to write, draw and do some yoga/healing movements. The inspiration also came from watching these eagles flying around and diving into some lands hunting for food… It was so wonderful <3.
    Finally, I had the pleasure to discover, within the same day, St Jean de Luz beach and its cute town and make a few hours trek, around 8km away from the farm, where I’ve had a good breathing session and discovered so many different birds species, some migrating as it was the season. This was in addition to the eagles, macpies, crows and many other birds you can catch at the farm.
    A place I hence highly recommend and hope to get back to some day :).
    I am extremely grateful and thankful having had the opportunity to catch the perfect place to end my road trip before hitting Paris.
    Thank you for your awesome energy full of bright lights and happiness :)

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.
