Vitality : quality of living beings and groups demonstrating high levels of energy and dynamics. Vitality of an art form or culture, like right here! The Basque country has preserved its language dating from the Palaeolithic era, along with its culture.

Keep on moving, keep on grooving!

 

In Béarn and the Landes, traditions are also lovingly perpetuated. The Carnaval Biarnés de Pau, Fêtes de la Madeleine in Mont-de-Marsan: there’s always some reason to celebrate in the region.

And for culture in general, from the Lascaux paintings to digital art, medieval bastides to modern urban facilities, baroque music to rock festivals, variety and vitality go hand in hand.
So remember to get your strength up, sampling oysters in an oyster farmer’s hut on the Arcachon basin, Périgord walnuts on sale at a local market, prunes from Agen lovingly grown and a drop of Armagnac to whip you up!

Quite the stuff to energise ready to tame the ocean waves, ascend the Pyrenean peaks, go white water rafting and ride the cycle paths. The most athletic can sign up for the marathon through the vineyards!
