About the property

Socoa between Ciboure and Urrugne, in the bay of Saint Jean de Luz

In the bay of Saint Jean de Luz near Fort Socoa; 600 m from the beach, Basque delightful detached house. Two true independent bedrooms, a large living room, a large dormitory upstairs and two small rooms with washbasin on the ground garden. Ideal for families. Small garden around with barbecue and plancha, chairs, pingpong table, etc ...

The house is 600 m from the main beach just over the beach of the most quiet harbor in the summer. On foot, there are also two mini-markets, two bakeries, a (very good) butcher - selling a wonderful Basque cake), restaurants on the harbor, a very good merchant ice, etc. There at the port of Socoa a smuggler to get to Ciboure and Saint Jean de Luz, shuttles for the night and a bus to St Jean and Hendaye (ask at the tourist Urrugne). The house has two parking spaces, everything is very doable walk (you can even go to St John walking around the bay, with children). In practice, it does not use the car for the big races (or Leclerc Lidl next door) and go to Hendaye for surfing, the beaches of Socoa are protected.

To do:

o) On foot: Socoa beaches, restaurants, ice, water sports (skiing, buoy, kayak, paddle, sailing ...), yacht club, scuba ... Basque cornice; ballads to Urrugne behind the cornice, with on one side the sea, the mountains and the other sheep in the middle ...

o) Treader and / or shuttle - but doable walk: St Jean de Luz beach, restaurants, shops, toro de fuego and evening concerts, markets, etc. see the tourist office.

o) By car: the rear Basque country, walks in the mountains, many starting around Urrugne, Ascain, etc. So close, with hostels for lunch after walking the French side or Spanish ... Again, plans to SI Urrugne. Then Beam, wine, slightly larger mountains, lakes ...

o) By car: Hendaye and its huge beach with waves, ideal to start surfing! This is the green trail surfers or body boarding. Beach that descends very gently and where you can watch the kids.

o) By car also: Guétary, Bidart, Biarritz, Bayonne, Espelette, Cambo, etc ...

Spain! Tapas in Hondarribia in front of Hendaye crossing with the smuggler or car; San Sebastian to see a little further - beautiful city by the sea, with a direct train from Hendaye to avoid parking.

Maison parfaite pour des vacances entre amis

  • 5 of 5

C'est une superbe maison, parfaite pour des vacances entre amis. Très bien située et bien desservie pas les lignes de bus. Pas de mauvaise surprise côté ménage. Les propriétaires sont très gentils et arrangeants au niveau des horaires d'arrivée notamment, ils sont à votre disposition si vous avez des questions ( nous n'étions pas tous majeur ).Super vacances et beaucoup de souvenirs ! Merci !

Un séjour formidable !

  • 5 of 5

Maison très agréable, confortable, spacieuse, avec une décoration chaleureuse et cosy. Le jardin et sa table de pique-nique ont permis de profiter du soleil, et la table de ping pong au sous-sol a été bien utilisée en soirée.

La situation de la maison est optimale avec une proximité à pied du port de Socoa et de la plage.

Une adresse que je recommande absolument.

Maison chaleureuse près de la plage

  • 5 of 5

Maison chaleureuse familiale, très confortable avec une décoration très sympa. Nous y avons séjourné en famille parents, grands parents enfants,avec un dortoir à l'étage pour tous les cousins! La plage de Socoa est juste à côté et la petite promenade pour aller à Saint Jean de Luz à pied est magnifique.

Maison très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Maison très agréable pour deux familles avec enfants. On peut tout faire à pieds: plage, pain, boucherie, supérette, école de voile, navette pour Saint Jean de Luz.

La deuxième douche est très appréciable. La maison est très bien équipée pour nourrir une grande famille.
