The wife and I are avid backpackers here in the States, and would love to have that experience in France. After ~6 minutes of Googling, the GR10 seems to be a great fit! If only we had time (and PTO) for the full loop, but alas we are limited to 3-4 nights on a certain section.
Does anyone have any home base recommendation that 1) has easy access to the trail, 2) has a gear rental store, and 3) maximizes natural beauty for the hiking days.
Another minute of Googling brings up Hendaye on the West portion of the trail and Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port towards the center. Any opinions? Thanks!
