Moulin d’Ibure is a former water mill. It is situated nearby the Atlantic coast only 30km East of Biarritz in quiet rural surroundings at the border of the village Bardos at the river Lihoury. The property covering about 7,4 acres has a vast garden with very old plane trees, meadows, flowered bushes and subtropical plants. It consists of two houses: the former house of the miller “Maison Ibure” and the ancient original mill building “Moulin”. Both have been completely renovated and equipped as comfortable vacation homes and newly furnished in a bright and tasteful style. Each home is an independent unit with separate entrance, own terrace and a large own area of the garden which is clearly devised by the former mill channel.
“Maison Ibure” has its kitchen and a living and dining room with a large eating table, sofa and TV on the ground floor. On first and second floor there are four bedrooms each with adjacent bathroom. “Moulin” has a spacious combined living room with eat in kitchen, three bedrooms and two bathrooms, all on one floor.
House and garden:
Moulin d’Ibure offers plenty space to various holiday makers: couples and small families enjoy it as much as bigger or two families and friends who like to spend their vacation together! The bright cosy rooms are furnished tastefully and comfortably, wonderful places to retire not only at night time. In both kitchens you find everything to prepare a good meal and then relish it at a nicely laid table, inside or outside. The vast natural garden impresses with its mighty old plane trees, amply flowered bushes, subtropical plants and large meadows. Here you can take a sunbath, quietly read a book but also play badminton or volley. Especially our small guests adore discovering flora and fauna here and enjoy splashing around in the nearby rivulet Lihoury, when the water is low in summer. The large property is bordered by the rivulet, a copse and a high laurel hedge.
Mountains, beaches and villages:
Moulin d’Ibure is situated in the middle of the gently hilly landscape of the outskirts of the Pyrenees. Here you can enjoy peace and tranquillity. When you climb the outlook tower of Bardos, you will be overwhelmed by the fascinating view of the Atlantic Ocean in the west and the Pyrenees in the south! And you can easily reach both whenever you like. At the coast south of Biarritz there are plenty of nice bays to swim and north of it the well-known long white Atlantic beaches. In the back country you can discover typical picturesque Basque villages. Also a walk in the beautiful historic old town of Bayonne or Saint Jean de Luz is worthwhile. The area is a real paradise for surfers and golfers; there are various possibilities for horse riding and marvellous hike paths. Also for those who are interested in the culture life there is a lot to discover: museums as the ‘Musée Bonnat’ and the ‘Musée Basque’ in Bayonne, festivals of music and dance, not to forget the vast choice of markets providing regional delicacies! Even Spain and the pulsating cities San Sebastian, Pamplona or Bilbao with its famous Guggenheim museum in are not far away. The choice what to do and where to go might be difficult and often holidays are just too short to experience all attractions.
A part from coming in one’s own car, a flight combined with car hire is an attractive alternative way of travelling to this lovely region of France. There are well-priced offers to the nearby airports of Biarritz, Pau, Bordeaux, Lourdes, Toulouse or Bilbao. This way even a short one week holiday is worthwhile!
