We had an excellent buffet breakfast at the Maison Elizondoa, and then set off on a semi-circular tour
into the Basque country, as our next overnight stay was not very far away.
We passed a semi-ruined church, and made our way up a fertile valley to a reservoir, where we had a picnic lunch.
From there we climbed up the wooded hillside to admire the views of the rolling countryside,
meeting flocks of sheep typical of this area. From there, it wasn't far to the village we were staying in.
The village square was guarded by a lone collie dog, and we managed to find the key to the village church,
build in the typically basque style with balconies round the sides.
The village inn we were staying in had obviously seen better days
when it was on a main route, but was still comfortable and was proudly proclaiming its Basque heritage with
a map of the Basque country and Basque colours prominently displayed.
We had a simple evening meal that we finished off with a Gâteau Basque.
