Donibane Lohitzune

Donibane Lohitzune (St. Jean de la Luz in French), is a small seaside town in Lapurdi, in Iparralde (the French part of the Basque Country). Once famous for its corsairs and pirates, it is nowadays more renowned for its nice light, its beach and historical buildings. We dropped by on Easter Thursday, had a fantastic meal at Kaiku and a walk around town, and ended up buying too much sheep cheese from Iraty (one of my absolute favourites).
