                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1992

                      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.
