Charming Basque gite — 25 km from Saint-Jean-de-Luz

Bedrooms 2
Space 538 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

The building takes its inspiration from colonial architecture in the Americas. A local built it in 1824 on returning from that continent having made their fortune.

We offer three holiday flats for four people in the building's former attic (rear annexe).

Set in Urdax, a calm Navarre village, this old gite is on the Road to Santiago (Way of St. James).

It faces the monastery (1300 to 1700) bordering the canal and the mill.

There are three caves in an 8-km radius: Urdax, Sare, and Zugarramurdi.

We are 5 km from Ainhoa and 25 km from Saint-Jean-de-Luz and Biarritz.

  • 5 of 5

"We spent a delightful five days here in May 2007. The apartment is in an historic building and has been renovated to combine the magnificence of the original historic building with its high ceilings and thick beams with modern amenities and fittings. Unlike the owners of some homelidays apartments in which we have stayed, Mr. Cecilio S has fitted out the apartment with quality fittings and equipment as well as little extras like a first aid kit and tourism information, even extra toilet rolls!!!! He was also always available to provide any assistance. The apartment was an extremely comfortable place to stay and the Urdax, a tranquil village in a beautiful valley, is a lovely location from which to explore the local areas."

Très chaleureux !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 2 semaines à Urdax. Le village est très typique et authentique entre mer et montagne. Le logement est très chaleureux et accueillant. L'appartement se situe à l'arrière d'une maison d’architecture coloniale dite des Indes. C'est très joli !

Les propriétaires sont vraiment charmants.

Je recommande mille fois !

Excellente prestation

  • 5 of 5

Bonjour, nous avons séjourné une semaine dans cet appartement courant Juillet 2016.

Nous en avons un excellent souvenir. Cecilio et sa femme, les propriétaires ont fait preuve de discrétion tout en se montrant disponibles en cas de besoin, du premier jour jusqu'au départ.

L'appartement est fonctionnel en tous points, excellemment bien équipé. Le linge de maison est fourni entièrement, tout était nickel.

Ce fut un véritable bonheur d'y séjourner. Prendre votre petit déjeuner sur le balcon face aux bâtisses du pays Basques et à ses montagnes pleines d'histoires était un pur bonheur.

Des petites clochettes, des oiseaux, de la verdure, des montagnes, des grottes, vous êtes bien loin des villes trépidantes et stressantes.

Nous avons adoré Urdax et le Pays Basque côté espagnol. Un petit air de Kabylie notamment, et une bonté basque qui n'a plus rien à prouver.

Encore merci pour votre gâteau basque, juste magique.

Si l'envie nous reprend de reposer nos valises au Pays Basque, en Navarre, soyez sûr que nous reprendrons contact avec vous.

Un grand merci pour tout.

Moderno y Limpio

  • 5 of 5

El apartamento en que hemos estado está limpio y en muy buenas condiciones, con todo el mobiliario y equipamiento completo.

Los propietarios son muy atentos y de trato agradable.

Hay un bar-rest. en la entrada donde sirven buena comida y los que llevan son muy amables.

El entorno es super relajante y con grandes posibilidades de visitas, caminatas, montaña y mar cercano.

Hemos quedado completamente satisfechos de nuestra estancia.
