a trip to the basques at the beginning of April

Hi,

How is the weather in april at the area? We plan a trip from 2-11.4 . We will take a car from Marseille ( how long will be the ride? ) and would like to explore authentic villages, food (seafood, raw fish etc) and all authentic events and spots.

I am a chef and very interested in the culinary side of the area.

I woul be happy to receive your recommandations for food markets /events , local restos, and all other recommandations.

thnks,

Raya

You said in your original post that you will be coming from Marseille, in your second post Madrid. You have also not said where you are going.

I have included google map links below:

Madrid to San Sebastian: http://g.co/maps/b37s5

Suggests 4 hours 45 minutes for the journey so 5 hours 30 minutes might be more realistic.

Marseille to San Sebastian: http://g.co/maps/eq9b6

Suggests 7 hours so 9 hours is probably a better estimate.
