Sare (Basque: Sara) is a village in the traditional Basque province of Labourd, now a commune in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in south-western France.

It is located some 15 km (9.3 mi) to the east of Saint-Jean-de-Luz and the Atlantic Ocean, in the western foothills of the Pyrenees.

The summit of La Rhune, a mountain iconic of the Basque country, is situated approximately 4 km (2.5 mi) to the west of the village. The summit can be reached by the Petit train de la Rhune, which commences from the Col de Saint-Ignace, 3.5 km (2.2 mi) to the west of the village on the D4 road to Saint-Jean-de-Luz.
