If variety is the spice of life, Pyrenees-Atlantiques is well seasoned indeed

Bordered by the Bay of Biscay to the west and the mountains of the Pyrenees to the south, this is a region of delicious variety and a dream for adventurous travelers. Pyrenees-Atlantiques vacation rentals are scattered throughout the French department, but the bigger question is whether you'll find yourself sunning it up on the beaches of Biarritz or swishing down the slopes at Gourette. Perhaps you'd be more comfortable grabbing a surfboard and hanging ten off the Basque coast, or unwinding with a thermal bath in the spa town of Cambo-les-Bains?

What'll it be: beach, mountain, or offshore surf break?

There's so much going on in the department of Pyrenees-Atlantiques that tailoring a holiday to suit your gang's needs is an absolute breeze. If rest and relaxation are the goals, coastal resorts such as Biarritz and Saint-Jean-de-Luz will provide you with all the sun and sand you desire. When you tire of being a beach bum, activities like surfing, sailing, biking, and Segway riding are all on offer. Head to Pyrenees National Park to indulge in hiking and rock climbing. If winter sports are your thing, search for Pyrenees-Atlantiques vacation rentals near the resort of Gourette to enjoy first-class skiing and snowboarding.

Savor fine art and fine wine in the Pyrenees-Atlantiques

Delve deep into Pyrenees-Atlantiques' rich history and culture by making the most of the region's museums, galleries, and attractions. Hear the fascinating story of people who stood up against occupation during the Second World War at Pau's Musee de la Resistance, or visit the nearby Musee des Beaux Arts to see European art that dates back to the 15th century. Of course, it'd be rude not to drop by a vineyard or two as well. For a tipple, make your way to the area between Pau and Oloron-Sainte-Marie, where you'll find an abundance of vineyards with tasting rooms serving locally produced wine.

Weather in the Pyrenees is the bees' knees

Warm summers and mild winters are the order of the day in Pyrenees-Atlantiques—yet another reason the department manages to attract so many visitors throughout the year. The coastal resort of Biarritz typically sees summer highs of around 78 degrees, while the temperature in winter tends to only fall as low as the mid-40s. Things are a little cooler near the mountains, and the impact of the Pyrenees ensures the region receives a fair dose of rain each month. Make sure you don't head to the winter sports resort of Gourette without your thermals, as the temperature drops to a rather chilly average of 21 degrees in January.

Take in snow-capped peaks and majestic meadows

Pyrenees-Atlantiques vacation rentals are within reach of a huge variety of landscapes, meaning there's plenty for nature lovers to get their teeth into. Parc National des Pyrenees is a major draw for many visitors thanks to the opportunities it provides for hiking and nature spotting. Keep your eyes open for ibex, royal eagles, vultures, and ptarmigans. Looking for the perfect picnic spot? Check out Cascade du Gros Hetre waterfall, just off the D198 close to the ski resort of Gourette. To the north of the department lies Landes forest, Europe's largest expanse of maritime pine trees.
