A small fishing village in southwest France, located on the Atlantic coast, Saint Jean De Luz has experienced something of a tourist boom in recent years. People are slowly discovering its stunning beaches and peaceful atmosphere, which are making the town a popular alternative to nearby, busier resort towns.
Saint Jean's history dates back to the 10th century when a group of whalers arrived and set up camp. The still-active fishing community makes an important contribution to France's economy with their daily catch of sardines, tuna and anchovy.
A beautiful resort that boasts a busy town centre, Saint Jean De Luz has a unique character that can be experienced in the narrow cobbled lanes and historical buildings of this fishing town.
You won't be surprised to find excellent seafood restaurants here with fresh fish on the menu daily. You will also find an array of bars and quaint cafés which offer a real taste of France.
For shopaholics, the town centre also boasts a wide selection of shops, both designer and local. Whether you splash out on a new outfit or browse the latest trends straight off the Paris catwalks, you will have a leisurely experience.
Saint Jean De Luz is not big enough to have its own public bus service, and is a great place to explore on foot. However, the best way to explore the town and the surrounding countryside is to hire a car. Booking car hire locally is an option, but prices can be high. We recommend you book car rental online, where the lowest rates on the market can be found.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card.
