Saucède is a very little village, and whilst is does have a long and interesting history it does not have a shop or restaurant within walking distance, however there are plenty of places to shop and eat within a short drive.
The two nearest towns to Saucède are Navarrenx and Oloron-Saint Marie. Navarrenx has a small market every Wednesday and another on Sundays in high season. It has many small shops and two art galleries. A circular walk around the town walls should not be missed.
Oloron-Saint Marie is a town which has grown from the joining of two towns which in turn had developed on two hills. Oloron is the more commercial, and hosts a Friday market, whilst Saint-Marie has a beautiful tenth century cathedral. Both areas boast a selection of cafés and restaurants, so whether you want to enjoy some café culture and watch the world move by, or eat a gourmet meal you can be catered for. During July and August it hosts FREE concerts, which cater for most types of music, two or three times each week. For more information take a look at Oloron-Saint Marie's website, www.oloron-ste-marie.fr/
All of the towns mentioned so far are on the route to St Jacques de Compostelle, another such village is Hopital St Blaise, with its twelfth century Romanesque church which has been made a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is within half an hours drive and also boasts two excellent restaurants.
Pau, the largest town in the area, is 40 minutes drive. It has lots on offer including a château, shopping, wine tasting, cheese tasting and much more including a new Olympic canoe course.
Then there are Lourdes, Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, Biarritz and Bayonne to visit!
All of this and you might still find time to drive to Spain for lunch (about 1 hours drive)!
