A charming B&B in the Basque country near Biarritz and Bayonne

ID: 573
This is a gorgeous little family friendly and pet friendly hotel near Biarritz (just 3kms), the beaches at Bayonne and Bayonne airport and also near pretty Saint Jean de Luz with its child friendly bathing beaches, shopping and gourmet restaurants.

Just a few kms from junction 4 of the A63 autoroute, the hotel is in a lovely quiet location with beautiful views towards the mountains of the Pyrenees..... this is the French Basque country on the Atlantic coast, one of the most stunning corners of the whole of France and within spitting distance of the Spanish border.

The guest rooms are split between an old 16th century farmstead and a delightful small chateau which is just adjacent. The elegant 16th century farmhouse just oozes charm and character.... think old oak beams and exposed stone walls, old tiled floors and big fireplaces.

The chateau is surrounded by expansive gardens where you can sit and relax and soak up the peace and quiet. Both buildings have been beautifully restored using eco-friendly practices and decorated with great taste and style.

This was the first hotel in the Basque country to obtain the 'Eco label' and where sustainable development plays a very important role. Geothermal underfloor heating has been installed along with an automatic electricity system in each bedroom which allows customers to switch off all of the lamps, thus saving electricity. The swimming pool at the farmhouse is heated using an air-water heat pump which is again very eco-friendly..

At this charming hotel you can expect all the charm of days gone by blended seamlessly with modern day comforts. Each room has a flat screen TV, free WiFi, mini bar, tea and coffee making facilities as well as modern bathroom facilities.

Air conditioning may be missing, but the thick stone walls do a superb job of keeping the interior cool in the summer months. The lounge is a cosy place to sit in the evening before you head out to dinner but in warmer months, relax in the huge gardens and soak up the summer sun. Bliss.

If you are looking for a golf break in France, this hotel would make an ideal base. The hotel can get you 10% – 20% off green fees at and one of the ten golf courses which are within a radius of 50 kms of the hotel, including La Phare in Biarritz and Ilbarritz golfclub in the nearest village which offers a view of the ocean and the Spanish coastline that will leave you breathless. The area also has several golf schools for everyone, regardless of your level.

For a gourmet break, again, you are in the right area. There are numerous restaurants in the immediate area for all budgets. Indeed, there is a very pleasant restaurant within walking distance down the lane. Guests who arrive by car have access to free private parking. This green hotel is also animal friendly. Just ask the owners for some bread if you'd like to feed the donkey or the horses!

The boutique hotel near Biarritz and Bayonne was charming, and we enjoyed our room in the Manor House. The breakfast was excellent. We would stay here again - Mr & Mrs Hennell James
