Thanks - I keep meaning to visit those places that others have recommended (it's a tough job etc!) but sadly we don't travel as much as we used to (Madame's health) so we tend to stick to the Pyrénées-Atlantiques (which isn't a hardship). I'm only too aware of the great swathes of France that we should be visiting or re-visiting such as Alsace, Burgundy and Provence. The trouble is, when we leave here to go north to Bordeaux say, or Paris - before ½ hour has passed, one of us will say, "Why are we leaving?". The Côte Basque is an easy part of the world to feel well-rooted in. Those recommendations from Peter Mayle (inc. no 56) are tempting! The one that Wiggy seconded above is a real find.. it's one of only two independent restaurants in the French autoroute network..
