  • West Pyrenean landscape near the village of Sare, Pays Basque Region, France Some background information: Sare is a village in the traditional Basque province of Labourd and now a commune in the department of Pyrénées-Atlantiques in south-western France. It is located in the West Pyrenean mountain range, about 25 km (15 miles) away from the French border with Spain. Sare has about 2,650 residents and its village centre comprises 283 listed houses, which partly date back to the 15th century. As a result of that Sare was admitted into the association "The most beautiful villages of France" (in French: "Les Plus Beaux Villages de France"), which promotes small and picturesque French villages of quality heritage. Currently 155 villages throughout France are pooled under the umbrella of the organisation. The traditional architecture and exterior decoration of the houses of Sare represent the archetype of the rural so-called Labourdine house, that is commonly referred to as the typical Basque house. Sare is surrounded by protected natural heritage sites of great ecological, faunistic and floristic interest. The West Pyrenean summit of La Rhune, a mountain iconic of the Basque country, is situated approximately 4 km (2.5 miles) to the west of the village. Located in the proximity of Sare is also the summit of Axuria. Sare has two open-air pelota courts. Pelota is the traditional court sport in the Basque country. In a game of pelota a ball has to be hit against a wall either by using the hands, a racket, a wooden bat or a basket, depending on the different standardised varieties and disciplines. Two teams of two players always play against each other. Basically there are two ways of scoring, either by playing the ball in such a way that the opposing team is unable to play the ball before it has rebounded off the playing floor more than once, or by playing the ball in such a way that it rebounds off the front wall and rebounds off the floor and outside the playing area. Pelota is a rather dangerous sport. With the ball easily travelling at 200 kilometres per hour (120 miles per hour), pelota can kill if safety equipment is not used properly or at all. But even with protection, accidents do happen occasionally. Finds in the caves of Sare and Lezea prove that the area, where Sare is located, was already inhabited in the Mesolithic Age. Furthermore, dolmen and menhirs attest a settlement in the Bronze Age. In Roman times, Sare was populated too. A Roman hoard of money was found in the cave of Urio Beherea. But the municipal area was also a place of Protoceltic and Celtic invasions and hence, had to be defended. In 1142, the church Saint-Martin de Sare was first mentioned in a register of the Cathedral of Bayonne. It was dedicated to Saint Martin of Tours. Remains of the first church can still be found in today’s church, which dates back to the year 1641. In the 16th and 17th centuries a wave of changes of religion in the Basque area required an enhancement of the capacity of many rural churches. That’s why in those centuries a lot of churches had to be renovated, made higher or even rebuilt, with two-storey or even three-storey galleries being included. Since 1982, the church of Sare is a national historic monument. In the 13th century, the municipal territory of Sare was a fiefdom of Hurayian Corboran de Lahet, Earl of Navarra, who joined King Louis IX of France in the Seventh Crusade. At that time the inhabitants of Sare mainly made a living from farming, working in the nearby iron mine and also smuggling. Due to its proximity to the Spanish border, Sare was often beset by Spanish plunderers. But in 1693, the village population fought back under the command Cristobal Ithurbide. Because of that, King Louis XIV of France (the so-called "Sun King") granted the village a coat of arms and put it under direct control of his royal representatives, naturally against the resistance of the noble house of Lahet that still had the suzerainty over Sare until then. In 1790, Sare became the administrative center of a canton that also included the villages of Ainhoa and Ascain. But in 1794, things took a turn to the worse. During the reign of terror following the French Revolution the entire population of Sare was deported and the village was renamed La Palomière. A military redoubt was built, but in 1813, Sare was occupied during a joint English-Spanish-Portuguese invasion. As the French army was hopelessly outnumbered, it had to retrench. However, the second half of the 19th century witnessed the withdrawal of the finally defeated Spanish invaders. During the second Empire, Napoleon III and Empress Eugenie often visited the caves in Sare and went on excursions to La Rhune. This was the time when Biarritz's most eminent figures came to taste the authenticity of a Basque village and its legendary festivities. King Edward VII of England and Queen Nathalie of Serbia visited the village, just like a number of great thinkers and philologists, such as W. Webster, Karl Bouda and H. Schuchard. After World War II, the number of famous visitors even increased and was complimented by Ho Chi-Minh, Aki Ito, at that time crown prince of Japan, Orson Wells, Winston Churchill, General De Gaulle, Field Marshal Montgomery and several others. Today, many residents of Sare are still engaged in farming, but tourism has become a major source of income too. Three hotels, six restaurants and 77 holiday homes ensure that the touristic infrastructure is satisfactory. Furthermore, Sare is home to a cake museum that addresses not only the connoisseurs of the traditional Basque cake "Gâteau Basque".
