La Bastide-Clairence
The Essential

Here we are on the doorstep of Gascony! With its adorable whitewashed houses, colourful sculpted lintels, its little church, public washhouse and square with arcades, it's as if this bastide (fortified town) is frozen in time. The impression is compounded by the craftsmen's workshops housed in the old town. La Bastide-Clairence, one of the designated "Plus Beaux Villages de France", is the ideal base for exploring the region.
