This region nestles up to the Spanish border over on the Atlantic coast; it extends north to the River Adour and east to the Béarn region which it shares with the Pyrenees-Atlantiques department.

The scenery is intense: small steep valleys, rolling hills, towering mountains, meandering rivers, a wild coastline, forests and woodland, all crammed into about 31,000 square feet. And all gloriously green and lush, for here there’s a classic mild, humid, oceanic climate.
