Baobab trees naturally become hollow inside when they turn a thousand years old. Inside are caves and caverns created by Mother Nature herself. So not only do you get beautiful interiors within a thousand year-old baobab tree, but you also get great insulation. And that’s what makes it the perfect place to set up a bar!

Unfortunately, only 15 can fit inside the bar at any one time. But guests are welcome to grab a drink and take it outside to bask in the shade of the huge baobab tree. In fact, the area surrounding the Big Baobab bar is so vast that it’s also a popular spot for weddings and other events.

The bar itself isn't that big as it can only hold 15 people.

The natural border they chose was the Bidasoa river and in its middle was the official French-Spanish border.
