Je me fais parfois le plaisir de passer par le pays Basque, histoire de varier les plaisirs. Quelques langoustines au marché de St Jean de Luz, des crevettes fraiches et des St Jacques. Un peu de beurre, ail persil et le tour est joué :0)
The French Basque Country is located at the extreme South West of France right before the Spanish border. It is a two hour drive to Biarritz and then picturesque Saint Jean de Luz. I will take you there when you come visit! The area looks a lot like Northern California with the hills and the ocean. The seafood, of course, is exceptional…
I went to the wharf, got a few shrimps, langoustines and scallops. I cooked everything in butter, put a little parsley and garlic in the pan… THIS is my French Heaven :0)

Hello Stéphane ! un petit coucou de Nantes, je n’ai pas résisté à m’inviter sur cet page, mon pays basque me manque tellement !!!! (je suis née à Bayonne….) 😉
Ma tante à une maison à Guéthary. J’adore ta région!! 😉

Oh the sea, it calls to me. Love it!
Oh Holly, you would just love this place! 🙂
I have been all over France, but shamefully never to the French Basque region. Thank you for the photo essay
You are most welcome. You should go sometime 🙂
Of course, I love. But I had to tell you: the photograph of the boat has such a magical component to it.
Thanks! The light was quite good at that moment…
These are such lovely pictures!
Thank you!! 🙂
Now you’ve got me craving for a drive to the sea, Stephane! Those fish and langoustine look super fresh and delicious..
Have you visited the Basque area yet? Truly worth the drive!! 😉 Loved your chicken Tikka post by the way!!
I have- it’s stunningly beautiful. I love that the mountains come right down to the sea. 🙂
Absolutely beautiful images! 🙂
Thanks Christa! The pictures don’t do the place justice though. It’s even better in real life 🙂
Looking at the architecture it almost looks like a dutch town.
When you come, I have got to take you there! The landscape is absolutely amazing and the food even better. It truly is heaven for a photographer
Great shooting, Stephane. A bientôt!
I cannot wait! Are you getting excited?
I’m thinking of stopping in St. Emillion to spend the night as I make the drive to your chateau. Any recommendations on where to stay, eat and see? Maybe you can drop a note to my email address and we can “chat it up” there. Merci b.
You could, but St Emilion is almost walking distance from the house…
Yum. Yum. Yum.
Wow! I don’t know what else to say. 😉
Oh Cynthia, you would love it there! It is such a special place…
Thanks Jalal! I hope I get to take you there someday! 🙂
Beautiful pictures as always!
You are so kind. Thank you! I must say I am jealous of your beautiful preserves! 🙂
