Ainhoa

The Basque village of Ainhoa, officially selected by the national tourist ministry as one of the prettiest in France, is a showcase for the Labourd region. Established in the 13th century, its little streets are lined with lovely 16th- to 18th-century houses featuring whitewashed walls, flower-filled balconies, brightly painted shutters, and carved master beams.
