Buvette de la Halle, Saint Jean de Luz

Buvette de la halle, Saint Jean de Luz. Pyrenees-Atlantiques. France. Photographed by Susan Walter. Tour the Loire Valley with a classic car and a private guide.

The Buvette de la Halle in Saint Jean de Luz gets very mixed reviews. It is an old fashioned market café. 'Buvette' means 'small bar' and a 'halle' is a covered fresh market. We didn't partake of anything there, although we did chat to the bartender. I suspect it is the sort of place that locals get on well with and regulars love, but they don't handle tourists so well. I think it's all about management of expectations, on both sides.


For details of our private guided tours of chateaux, gardens, wineries, markets and more please visit the Loire Valley Time Travel website. We would be delighted to design a tour for you.
