Louis XI stayed in this 14th century château in 1463, ideally located by the Spanish border and 3km from Saint-Jean-de-Luz. It is listed as a Monument Historique and has been beautifully renovated and refurbished with original 18th and 19th century furniture.
6 hectares of grounds and an outdoor pool unfurl from the estate. The orangery dates back to the Age of the Enlightenment and plays host to an array of Basque medicinal plants. A fabulous collection of tapestries from Brussels and Aubusson adorn the château’s interior. Linger over the three Basque words engraved over the fireplace in the main reception room meaning: “I unite, warm and delight”.
