Tuesday, July 6 – Walked from Hasparren to Cambo les Bains – 9 kms.

by

Got a good recommendation for walking on smaller roads to Cambo. Most of it was a ridge passing farmlands and impressive homes clustered in villages and standing alone. Very green hills. Finally, a left turn down a road into Cambo that was verdant and along a creek.

In Cambo les Bains we stayed at modern Hotel Ursula that was on the other side of the river from Cambo in Quartier Bas Cambo. Comfortable room. You have to climb to get to Cambo.

Visited les thermes (baths) but too late to take part. The grounds of the bath facility are very, very beautiful. Also, the views from Cambo looking out to the Quartier Bas Cambo are impressive.
