About Eamonn Curran

I am from Ireland but I love the Basque country especially the mountains, if you need any local advice don't hesitate to ask.

Eamonn Curran purchased this villa in 2003

Why Eamonn Curran chose Larressore

I built this house in 2003, the outside is built in the Traditional Basque style, however it is modern on the inside. The layout of the Kitchen and Terrace makes eating outside very easy, which is very important.

What makes this villa unique

It is a great area in the heart of the basque country located between the mountains and the sea.

Basque Villa Biarritz Area with Private Pool
average rating of 5.0 based on 2 reviews

Clean, comfortable and well equipped villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week at Eamonn's villa in the Basque region. The property is exactly as described by Eamonn and as in the photos. The pool was a huge hit with the whole family (despite the fact it turned my daughter's hair green!)

The villa is in a beautiful part of the Basque region (I could not get enough of the mountain views) and there's lots to do round about. We went to the beaches at Hendaye and San Sebastien and also went into the mountains for a spot of very light walking.

The villa was very comfortable, very well equipped and, as well as the pool, we enjoyed playing table tennis. My son also liked zooming around on the scooters. A morning treat was to go on to the front bedroom balcony and take in the mountain scenery.

As the previous reviewer said, Eamonn was helpful without being intrusive. He left lots of helpful information and leaflets in the property.

Laressore is a pretty village with an excellent boulangerie about 10 to 15 minutes walk away (up a fairly steep hill). We did not dine at the restaurant as it seemed a bit too formal for our children (not sure if they would serve steak hache!) but it had a wonderful terrace which looked out on to the mountains. A very romantic spot!

We had a lovely holiday and would definitely recommend the villa and the region.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house was as described, extremely clean and well maintained. Eamonn the owner gave us very good communications without being intrusive and answered all our questions promptly. I would thoroughly recommend this property. It is in a lovely location, private yet accessible. The local village is 5 mins walk and has a shop and restaurant (not open every night but the food was delicious). Locally there is lots to do, We went to Hendaye and took a boat to Spain for Tapas. The train up to La Rhune was fun but busy. Beaches at Anglet, Biarritz and Bidart were amazing. We enjoyed the pool immensely for cooling off at the end of a hot day. Our only recommendations would be that Aircon and a toilet in the bathroom would have benefited the family.
