The photos don’t do the views total justice. In the front of the house lies the Bay of Biscaye and the seaside cliffs approximately 300 metres away. At the back or the house you can take in both the Bay of St Jean de luz and La Rhune mountain in one sweeping panorama . The house had pretty much everything that was needed and for anything else there were several stores within a very short drive 5 minutes to 10 minutes depending which store you chose. . Because we had all travelled from Canada we had not brought our own beach towels for the pool. The owner Alain was very responsive and is in the process of ordering pool towels for the house. We purchased a bunch easily for ourselves. Ordinarily the weather is much more a mix of sun and rain than our heat and sunshine for 12 of our 14 days there. It would have been superb to be able to keep the windows open at night but the wet spring this year meant lots of mosquitos so we kept the windows closed. Again Alain is responding by getting screens put in on key windows to allow for that beautiful sea breeze to pass through to the other side of the house. We used fans at night which helped greatly. Overall the house was everything we need for our group of 12. Every room had its own updated bathroom with a shower that was very comfortable by North American standards. Great comfort for each of our kids and their spouses. Poolside was great well kept and the open grass proved a great area to kick a soccer ball or play ultimate frisbee.
We also explored many of the local towns in the heart of payee basque. From Bayonne in the north to as far as Bilbao in the south. Tremendous dinners in Socoa and Ciboure and of course St. Jean de luz! We had a wonderful holiday as a group and Villa Biskagorri was at the heart of what made it an experience trip of a lifetime. Thank you Alain and Benedicte
We were a group of 15 friends from mostly the USA. This house was perfect for our needs. We vacation together most summers, and of all the houses we have rented this one had the best kitchen and cookware. There was even a sharp knife, unheard of in most house rentals. The pool was warm, the walking-distance town, Ascain, was charming and had a good bakery. There is a large table on the covered porch we used for all meals, rain or shine. Highly recommended.
