Area in brief
In the southwestern corner of France, bounded by the Pyrenees and the Atlantic Ocean you will find the county 'Pyrénées-Atlantiques'. This county is divided into the Béarn (capital: Pau) and French Basque Country (capital: Bayonne).
This varied and green region by the mountains and the ocean, has had different cultures over the centuries and they have all left their influence.
In the heart of the Atlantic Pyrenees the 'Bearn des Gaves' (Bearn of the rivers) opens its doors for us and shows us the tremendous richness of its environment and residents.
Salies de Bearn is located in the north of the Béarn des Gaves, composed of the towns Salies, Orthez, Navarrenx and Sauveterre.
About two miles south of Salies lies Domaine d'Esperbasque.
