It was with a certain relief that friendly and familiar faces were seen at a café table in Bayonne as one emerged from the station. In the UK there are always anxieties about trains being cancelled but the SNCF provided swift, comfortable and efficient service.

We were soon on our coach passing through Bayonne headed for Les Pépinières Maymou, in the northern part of the city. Upon arrival, we were met by our guide, Monique Anguld, née Maymou, whose family created the nursery in 1884. In 1968 planting started to create an arboretum.
