Sare, at the very heart of the Basque Country
Listed among the most beautiful villages of France, Sare is a huddled village at the foot of the famous Basque mountain called «La Rhune».
With the villages of Ainhoa, Zugarramurdi and Urdazubi/Urdax in Navarra, Sare is located in the Xareta cross-border area Xareta.
Throughout history (Carlist Wars, World Wars) and in its activities (smuggling, night work…), Sare has always had privileged relationships with the other provinces of the Basque country on both sides of the border.
