    30 minutes from Biarritz

    Maison Etchebehere is a beautiful Basque home set in a unique location in a valley with almost 360-degree views of the surrounding hills, forest and river. The serenity is felt the moment you pass through the entry gates.

    You will enjoy waking in the morning to see horses and donkeys in the neighbouring paddocks and the peace that comes when you capture the views across the valley and river. You may take the opportunity to have meals prepared with fresh ingredients picked from the garden that day and authentic local produce purchased daily from the markets.

    Maison Etchebehere was constructed in the 18th century. A former splendid farm it fell into disrepair. Uninhabited for over 30 years it was almost a ruin when Corinne wh...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 12 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I would strongly recommend Maison Etchehebere for a totally relaxing and re-energizing holiday or short break. Corinne and Richard have created a beautiful home out of a 400 year old large stone Basque farmhouse. The quality of the renovation of this house is extraordinary with interesting architectural features such as the stonework and arched doorways preserved and enhanced. As with... more

We stayed at Maison Etchebehere during our recent family trip to Europe and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay! The house is in an idyllic position, the rooms are large and very comfortable and the bathrooms are wonderful. The whole house, which used to be a farmhouse, has been beautifully decorated, and the owners, Richard and Corinne,... more

My wife and I needed an escape from the Australian Winter, and the ever increasing “to do list” that always hangs over your head when you are at home. We were looking for a rural French experience that could give us an insight into life outside of Paris... more
