The village of Sare, in the foothills of the Pyrenees, about 10 kilometres inland of St Jean de Luz, is named one of "les plus beaux villages de France", and walking around its picturesque streets, lined with attractive medieval houses, it is easy to see why.

The village is today known for the various festivals it holds in the summer; rugby, the local ponies, known as puttocks, and of course the Basque game of pelote - all are celebrated here!

En route for Sare from St Jean de Luz, it is worth stopping off at the point called the col de St Ignace for a trip up its mountain railway. The little wooden carriages take you up to the very top of "La Rhune" peak; 900 metres above sea level.
