Driving Trip Basque Country and/or Aquitaine Pls Advise

Jump to last reply

I'm planning a driving trip through Basque country with my mother some time in June. I'd like some advice on beautiful scenic drives or good places to stay. The trip will be about 10 days, more or less. I'm open to the itinerary so it would be great to have some planning advice from someone who's driven through the area.

As of now I'm planning to drive into San Sebastian probably from Madrid. Then from San Sebastian to cross over to Biarritz into France. From here on out I'm not sure what to see next. I could stick around the area, or otherwise could try driving as far as the Dordogne valley; attracted to it obviously because of the food, the nice scenery, the nice drive through the hills. Or otherwise veering off east-southeast to head for Pau and that area. Any advice?

Is the drive from Biarritz to Dordogne very beautiful, or it plain? Would it be better to stick just to the Spanish side and drive to Oviedo instead? I haven't been to any of these areas and would much appreciate advice of someone who's driven these routes. I'm looking for a scenic drive, pretty cities and good food. Something off the beaten path is better than something very touristy, as long as it is beautiful.

Also does anyone know if crossing from San Sebastian to the French side...is it very mountainous, is it a steep drive into the Pyrenees? My mother doesn't like such a drive.
