Ma conjointe et moi avons loué cette maison pour trois semaines. Très beau séjour dans cette maison originale, lumineuse, reposante. La cuisine est très pratique et stimulante pour se préparer ses propres repas… Les deux bicyclettes fournies avec la maison sont très utiles pour aller à la plage, à Ciboure ou à St-Jean-de-Luz, ou pour faire les courses, que ce soit dans les petits commerces à proximité ou chez Leclerc, une grande surface. On a aussi profité de l’Espagne, colorée et animée, qui est à deux pas, visité les vignobles d’Irouléguy, escalader la Rhune, montagne emblématique du pays basque… Bref, une maison chaleureuse qui a grandement contribué à la réussite de notre séjour à Ciboure.

About the owner: Language teacher, married to a Spaniard, we both love travelling, outdoor sports and adventure, animals, movies, music and having family & friends around. Both speak German, English, Spanish, French
Why the Owner Chose St.-Jean-de-Luz:
I fell in love with the area, the culture and the people.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We enjoy the views, the light we get all day long due to the huge windows, glass roof in kitchen area, sitting on the decks, chatting with the neighbors. We love the closeness to the beach, to the Pyrenees. We can walk to the bakery buying the fresh bread for the breakfast. We enjoy being able to swim in France and go for Tapas afterwards in Spain or sunbathe on the Spanish side and enjoy the pictiuresque bay setting over a glass of wine in Ciboure/St Jean de Luz.
