There are summers when you just don’t feel like sightseeing…and you long for something that starts with the “N”…Nature, North, Near… rather than beaches, cathedrals, markets, far-away journeys, and so on.
So was the case with me last summer.
My trip-mate suggested Italy, Firenze, art, beautiful buildings… yet I chose something else.
Sometimes, iit’s just necessary to see green places, small places, cozy places, unspoilt places, nearby places, … far away from people, cars, polluted air, noise, you name it.
Souther France will give you everything. You just need a car and a mate.
Zaragoza – Oloron Sainte-Marie 220 km, 3 hours ride. You, the road, and the Pyrenees.
+ Chocolate Factory! Lindt 😉
+ jazz festival in summer.
+ Biarritz, nearby…
+ nice little villages: Navarrentx, Sauveterre de Bearn, Salies de Bearn!!!
…all of which deserve a visit, however short!
