Londoner by birth adopted the Basque Country as my home. Keep fit with Pilates and Golf.
Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances en famille à Saint-Jean de Luz !
La maison est très agréable à vivre : à la fois spacieuse, très bien décorée et équipée, chaleureuse. Les chambres et salles de bain sont parfaites également. L'environnement est magnifique : un beau jardin bien entretenu, en retrait de la rue, au calme, donnant sur une prairie où gambadent de jeunes poneys.
La situation est excellente : à la fois proche des jolis villages basques, des très belles plages de la côte basque, du massif de la Rhune, de San Sebastian,...
L’hôtesse, Cheryl, est charmante, très accueillante et nous a donné plein de bons conseils tant au niveau visites que gastronomie et randonnées.
Nous avons vraiment passé un très bon moment et espérons y revenir !
We had a great stay at the home in St Jean de Luz. The location is perfect to explore everything that the basque area has to offer - food (oh so much!), beaches, mountains, & beautiful historic villages. San Sebastian is much less than 1 hour drive away (easy for lunch or dinner) & in the other direction, Espelette, Sare, Ainhoa & St-Jean-Pied-de-Port are all accessible in less than an hour's driving.
Cheryl (email hidden) - friendly & full of info to make your stay better - from restaurant recommendations, to things to do with your day, to even the migratory patterns of the local birds!
One of the previous reviewers recommended that the house be equipped with a music dock & on the first day we stayed, Cheryl arrived with a brand new Bose music dock - which was wonderful & much appreciated by all!
The house itself is lovely - very much as you see it in the photos. It was built about 30 years ago & maintains a contemporary feel even today. The fireplace in the casual sitting room is marvellous - an absolute highlight - & it's worth visiting in winter just to be able to use it!
The Basque Home (email hidden) to relax. It is a big property with many rooms and a large garden. Ideal for bigger groups of friends. Two of my friends and myself stayed at the Basque Home this summer and enjoyed the calming setting. The situation of the house is close to visit the cities in the area (San Sebastian, Biarritz, Bayonne, etc.). The house does not have a street number and is a little hidden. Be sure to get directions from the owner.
Nous avons passé une superbe semaine. La maison est vraiment magnifique et accueillante. Tout comme Cheryl qui est une hôte attentionnée et prévenante.
Le quartier est très agréable, tout peut se faire à vélo, à condition d'avoir de bons mollets!
Nous recommandons vraiment !
Gorgeous house, with fabulous modern deco, in quiet countryside, within easy reach of St. Jean de Luz and Ascain, (especially when you have got the hang of the back roads). The house is very comfortable and fantastically well equipped, only lacking something for playing music apart from the keyboard! Delighted to have met Cheryl and husband, and hope we'll have the opportunity to come back again.

Thanks a lot Cheryl & Michel for a wonderful weekend at your marvellous home. The house is gorgeous, it is even better than the pictures!!! there is plenty of space, very nice modern design, really cozy. It has a huge garden and wonderful surroundings. Cheryl & Michel are really welcoming and really take care of every detail (they even bought a bbq for us after we requested it!!). We definitely recommend it and will try to come back!!
Cheryl and Michel are just the nicest couple, it was a pleasure meeting them and having them stay. We loved the reminiscing on our shared London childhoods, great fun.
Fantastic guests. Friendly, clean and flexible. Cheryl and Michel are both charming. We had some good conversations during their stay. Highly recommended!
We really enjoyed meeting Cheryl and her lovely family. they were great guests and we would welcome them back anytime.
