After spending a few weeks dithering on where to go or even whether to go anywhere, we decided on Biarritz. It was somewhere Roger always fancied visiting and he wanted to be beside the seaside. We stayed at the Hotel de Silhouette, perfectly located right in the centre, close to all the attractions, opposite the market and restaurants. But being November, some of the attractions were closed but we managed to visit Planete Musee du Chocolat along with a lovely walk around the town with tea and coffee stops in-between. Biarritz is definitely luxurious, you only have to look at the prices in the shop windows and the cost of staying at the Hôtel du Palais Imperial Resort & Spa to see that, but we loved that it was small enough to walk around with a lovely atmosphere. Eating out wasn’t a problem, even though some places had closed for the winter. We had 3 very different meals and all very yummy. On our second day we took ourselves off to San Sebastian and then on into the mountains. San Sebastian was enormous, much bigger than we’d thought. Because time was pressing and we were trying to squeeze in as much as possible before it got dark, we only staying for a couple of hours in San Sebastian before driving into the mountains. A lovely weekend to celebrate our special day. Roll on the next 30 years.
