Basque Country gem, Saint-Jean-de-Luz has known prestigious times and has been awarded the French “Land of Art and History” distinction by the Ministry of Culture.
Once a town of fishermen and corsairs, it is now a major tourist centre.
Saint-Jean-de-Luz’s seaside vocation began in the 1840’s, with the construction of hotels, sumptuous casinos and elegant villas on the seafront.
An SNCF train station in the middle of the town provides 2½-hour links to Bordeaux and 4½-hour links to Paris.
Spain is but a few kilometres away.
Some history and background
The Basque Country is a land of tradition and old culture, the language of which is spoken by 28.4% of the population and understood by a further 4.8%. Located in the western Pyrenees, it straddles the border between France and Spain.
Town of corsairs and a royal city courtesy of Louis XIV and Marie-Thérèse of Austria’s wedding in 1660, this seaside town is heir to a wealth of historic and cultural heritage.
Place-Louis-XIV, one of the squares most frequented by the local population, is lined with magnificent residences bequeathed by rich ship owners.
The port, with some forty ships moored up, is still the Basque Country’s biggest fishing port, although whales are no longer fished.
As regards gastronomy, the Basque Country offers first-class local produce such as Espelette peppers, sheep’s cheeses, black cherries from Itxassou and Irouléguy wines.
Two thalassotherapy centres facing the Bay complete the Basque invitation to well-being.
The main, impressive entrance gates open on to a gravelled area surrounding the chateau. A chapel, exuding a refined style, stands in the background. It is followed by a long row of plane trees, near to a swimming pool, laid out in front of the river La-Rhune.
Extensive grounds enable the impressive size of this building to come into its own with ease.
The eye is irresistibly drawn to its white facades and turrets, one round and the other square, which appear to want to rival the Pyrenean mountains in height. Featuring mullioned windows, they reflect a time which, here, gives the impression of continuing.
Spanning three levels, its internal architecture is typical of the region, in keeping with the sturdiness of the Basque character.
A privilege: here, everything is ready, both inside and in the parklands, for receiving guests in the manner of the “Belle Époque”.
This residence, set between the sea and the mountains, is of a reasonable size and meets the requirements of modern-day home comforts. It combines the classical charm of traditional construction with space and the view.
A perfect blend of elegance, a sober, somewhat austere appearance and an authentic, pleasant way of life.
