This is a 13th century manor House located in the heart of the Basque country .
The area is breathtakingly beautiful and wonderful for hiking.
We have a large organic vegetable garden from which we prepare vegetarian meals all year. Though we do eat organic locally produced meat some times. We are experimenting with permaculture. We serve organic vegetarian Food at our summer concerts in an outdoor Theatre. After 20 years of renovation we still have several projects . Building an earth dome for a spa and a wood cabin for extra out door space.
We are English but speak reasonable French.
We are happy to help you with your English or French if you are trying to improve them. :-)
We are a half hours drive from Biarritz & the Basque coast & there is now a bus from the village.. We are in a valley between the mountains of Baigura 897m & Garalda 600m giving several excellent walks from the house.
We have a white water raft and when the weather is very hot we go to the river Nive in the next valley, which is lots of fun.
