The house offers all mod cons for a group of friends: table that seats 14 in the dining room, living room to relax in the ancient barn, traditional in the Pays Basque and a kitchen that caught up with modernity (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble-dryer...).

We loved every minute of our one week stay at 'ferme Urcuit'. The house is tucked away down a country lane, just up from the river Adour. It's about a 15minute max drive from the centre of Bayonne, there are buses that run from Urcuit to the town centre but we all rented cars. There's plenty of parking by the house. The garden and views surrounding the house are fab; fig, medlar, apple and plum trees, and grapevines overhanging the entrance doors - we even saw deer as we drove down the lane! A group of 3 English and Irish families, 17 adults and 1 baby, we decided to allocate rooms before a scramble ensued: there are four private dbl rooms with ensuite, one single bedroom and then two rooms with ensuite that sleep 4 people each (one is a mezzanine, the other room has wall between a dbl bed and two single beds but no door). Since there were 4 sets of parents, we gave them the private double rooms. The loos upstairs are electric and boom when flushed, so we agreed simply to use the downstairs bathrooms at night. The living areas are very spacious, there's a huge dining table that seated everyone which made the evenings great fun. There's a games cupboard, hi-fi and tv. The kitchen has all the mod cons - the dishwasher is a saviour with that many people! and the washing machine was used for baby's laundry. We cooked in every evening bar one, so the two electric ovens and 5 gas hobs were all used. The pool is picket-fenced off from the garden with a little gate for safety (young children), there are deckchairs and comfy beanbag style chairs, and a long 'picnic' table underneath, quite originally, a sail for shade. The supermarket is in Urt, a short drive away, and we got our croissants every morning from the bakery in Urcuit. The one night we ate out it was under the leafy terrasse at the restaurant on the main square in Urt - very welcoming and accommodating for such a large group! From there we took the shuttle bus in for the Bayonne festival, which dropped us back to Urcuit that evening. The Lascaux family were very welcoming, we saw them on the 1st day and last, and Jean just popped by twice in the week to clean the pool. They also kindly left us delicious homemade fig, plum and peach jam - what a treat!

Grande réunion de famille de rêve!

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer une semaine de rêve dans cette belle demeure. Nous nous sommes retrouvés en famille à 17 et garderons de très bons souvenirs de notre séjour. La maison a énormément de charme, très spacieuse et est très bien équipée pour recevoir de grands groupes (de nombreuses salle de bains, une cuisine très bien équipée pour gérer des repas pour grandes tablées, linge de maison fourni en quantité suffisante). Entre une très grande piscine, le ping-pong, le volley et les hectares de nature qui entourent la maison, les jeunes et les moins jeunes ont eu beaucoup de plaisir. Le site est magnifique avec une vue sur l'Adour qui rend grandioses vos petit-déjeuners et apéros! Nous avons été reçus avec beaucoup de gentillesse par nos hôtes sur qui vous pouvez compter durant votre séjour. Supermarchés et boulangerie sont à proximité pour vos courses quotidiennes. Pour ceux qui arriveront à quitter la maison pour quelques visites touristiques...;) Bayonne, Biarritz et Saint Jean de Luz sont à 15-30mn de voiture d'Urcuit.

super réveillon au Pays Basque

  • 4 of 5

Un lieu très agréable où nous étions entre amis et famille venant de : Lille, Région Parisienne, Est de la France et Ardèche. Le nombre de salles de bains contribue aussi à ce confort. Avons aussi apprécié la grande cheminée ('donc vous pouvez aussi y aller l'hiver). Très grand espace, vraiment super, avons aussi pu prendre l'apéritif en terrasse.

Super vacances de jour de l'an

  • 4 of 5

Nous rentrons d'une semaine passée à Urcuit où nous nous sommes retrouvés entre amis et famille du : Nord, de l'Est, de la Région Parisienne et d'Ardèche.

Tout le monde y a trouvé sa place. Autant de salles de bains c'est un véritable confort.

Vous pouvez même y aller en hiver, nous avons profité d'un feu à l'âtre tous les jours.

De la terrasse où nous avons pu prendre l'apéritif. Conseillé aussi aux familles qui ont des enfants. Aucun danger. Allez y

Car: recommended

The farmhouse is located in Aquitaine, in the Pays Basque (Pyrenees-Atlantiques department). 12km away from Bayonne and its old town, 14km away from the Biarritz beaches (sea and shops) and 195km away from Bordeaux. The house is in a peaceful area, in a 7 ha park, quite isolated though remaining close to the shops of the village (Circuit, small village in the Pays Basque) and shopping centres (at Anglet, 19km away).
