Bonjour! This week’s carte postale features the seaside town of Biarritz, located in southwest France on the Atlantic coast, just north of the border with Spain. The town is a popular destination for visitors who enjoy surfing, golfing, or going to the spa.

Top right: Hôtel du Palais was originally built by Napoleon III for his wife, Eugénie. Today, the property is a 5-star luxury hotel.
Center: Le Rocher de la Vierge is a rock formation with a statue of the Virgin Mary on top of it
Bottom left: From Le Rocher du Basta you can see the whole Grande Plage
Bottom right: Le Port Vieux is a smaller, kid-friendly beach
Bonjour! This week’s carte postale is one I picked up during my visit to Néris-les-Bains, France:
During my international volunteer project in Hérisson, France, my team and I visited another workcamp (as these projects are sometimes called) located in the old spa town of Néris-les-Bains. I remember spending a lovely afternoon at a park, then visiting a dance club later that evening at Casino de Néris-les-Bains!
