Finding souvenirs is never an easy task when on a holiday and leaving this task until the last minute of a trip often leads to struggle to find something original for family and friends back home. For those planning to travel to or holiday in Biarritz, here is a list of original stores where visitors can pick up souvenirs during their stay.
How nice would it be to bring back some of the food enjoyed while on holiday so loved ones can enjoy the amazing and various products from the region as well? Make sure to buy some Bayonne ham, espelette pepper, and some Ossau-Iraty cheese (sheep’s cheese).
If friends and family back home are more into sweets, stop by La Maison Adam and buy delicious macarons and chocolate that will certainly delight their taste buds.
Those who go to San Sebastian during their holiday, pick up some txakoli (pronounce cha-co-li), the local wine (check to make sure the mode of transportation back home allows this first).
Another way to revive food experience from Biarritz is to purchase some original-food utensils from Assiettes & Compagnie.
