Day : An Evening In St Jean
Our seamless journey from the tarmacked runway of Biarritz Airport to the brass doorstep of the Central Hotel in St Jean Pied de Port was sewn together with a laid-back bus journey to Bayonne and a scenic train journey up the mountains to St Jean.
What was to be a very wet weekend started off as a blissfully warm afternoon. We had nothing less than a magical evening in St-Jean, sunbathing and eagle spotting at the citadel and bat gazing along the riverside.
The crickets sang their evening chorus and the narrow, cobbled streets welcomed the fresh-faced Camino-ers looking for an equally fresh baguette and a souvenir scallop shell for their poncho-covered rucksacks.
As we made our way back to our hotel for a good nights sleep, a chorus of evening hymns echoed from the nearby church as the soundtrack to our pending adventure.
Day : Zubiri To Pamplona
We set off on our last day, with our bellies full of croissants and a sense of wonder at what lay ahead. As the sun shone high, we promised to take our time and savour every moment of the final stretch to Pamplona.
The eagles watched from high as we coursed our way through the Valleys past green fields and forest-lined paths into the urban streets of Villalva.
The Basque culture became more apparent as we followed the yellow arrows through the streets to Pamplona.
Hotel Restaurant Central Saint
#10Restaurants in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port
had lunch on the nice terrace overlooking the river at the back.food and service honorable, fair ratio quality price
We stopped in this special town for lunch with no fixed view of where to eat. Read TripAdvisor reviews… many reviews noted gruff/grumpy staff at different restaurants which we didnt need. Its our vacation. So we walked through town to look at the different menus….We were taken with the beautiful outdoor seating by the river Nive of the Hotel Central, it was a beautiful, temperate day. Reception was welcoming. Linens on the table. Lovely outdoor seating. Reasonable prices. Friendly, professional service. For us, memorable. Thank you. More
This restaurant, and the attached hotel occupies the best riverside position in the town. To add to this is quality ‘old style ‘ service but with a modern and traditional menu choice, set or a la carte.
We had a balcony/riverside table at this charming restaurant, the hostess and waiter were so attentive. A fabulous meal of Garbure, then Veal et frites. We could hardly managed dessert but we tried. A perfect meal at a perfect restaurant in a perfect setting.

Day : Roncesvalles To Zubiri
Roncesvalles is a strange and wonderful place. Casa de Beneficiados, our nest for the night, greeted us like your open-armed mammy, who has the hot water on and food in the oven. After a long, wet day of walking, we would have been happy with anything but Casa Benificiados was more than we ever expected.
Not only was the water hot, food tasty, and wine plentiful but the hotel itself was truly relaxing. Reflecting on its former glory as a Monastery, the authenticity was strong in every corner slab.
Leaving Roncesvalles with a belly full of protein and coffee, we set off on a rather wet path to Zubiri.
The fog cleared but the rain was persistent. We marched through forested paths and local villages right into the good weather down into Zubiri.
The coziness of Hosteria de Zubiri, the quality of the food, and the appearance of the sun made up for the sparseness of Zubiri itself but made us reflect sadly on the fact that we only had one more days walking.

Breakfast In St Jean Pied De Port
MisterH said:I assume you know that most hotels and aubergines include a continental breakfast with the room charge. Then if you want a little snack to eat while on the way to Orisson you can buy it in town before leaving. If that is not what you want to do, then you can have a snack at Hunto which is on the way up to Orisson.

Day : The Route Napoleon
Our first walking day along Route Napoleon was nothing short of a washout. The first 7km to Orrison boasted spectacular views but after that, the heavy curtain of fog and rain did its best to shield any views of lush hillsides and steep sloping valleys.
It was a tough days walk with the first 18km being mostly uphill. With our light backpacks and encouragement from our kindred spirits, we made it past Croix Thibault and down a sharp descent into the forests of Roncesvalles.
After a long hard day of hill walking, the steep slopes were a torment on the knees but aided by walking poles, the welcomed first sight of the Collegiate Church in Roncesvalles, gradually poked through the treetops.
Une Deception D’un Niveau Rare > A Fuir
Nous sommes entrés dans ce restaurant pour éviter les pièges à touristes à bas prix… et en avons trouvé un à prix élevés !Salade 19, d’un niveau digne d’un établissement routier, et encore… 5 aurait été cher payé pour cela…. et une chenille vivante dedans : on nous a remplacé notre salade à peine entamée par une demi-portion de salade, encore plus mal dressée que l’assiette initiale.Et aucun geste commercial, même le café ne nous a pas été offert.
Les points positifs
> Nappes et serviettes en tissu> Serveurs plutôt habillés et agréables> Les poissons en sauce étaient plutôt bons
Les points négatifs
> Rapport qualité/prix on ne peut plus mauvais> Dame visiblement chef de salle dont le sourire se transforme en rictus dès que vous ne lui faites plus face> Garniture des poissons à 15 et 17 : une petite pomme de terre à l’eau coupée en deux, c’est tout
