This is a splendid hotel right on the French-Spanish border in the small village of Biriatou. Family-owned and run by a couple (the Duvals) who both trained in London and speak English. Excellent dinners full of local produce are served. There is a nice terrace and garden looking toward the Pyrenees. Bedrooms are comfortable rather than luxurious. Plenty of parking... More

We have had a wonderful relaxing stay at Les Jardins. The bedroom was extremely comfortable. We had a balcony with views over the valley, a huge comfy bed and a bathroom with large bath, overhead shower and "his and hers" basins. Everywhere is perfumed by big vases of fresh flowers and spotlessly clean. The restaurant serves delicious food presented in... More

This is a charming hotel in the foothills of the Pyranees, near the top of a road that ends in a small square with a bar and an open area where children can skateboard. It's set in greenery and feels really out of the way, but is not far from the centre of Hendaye and the border to Spain. Our... More

I last visited the Jardins de Bakea 27 years ago. It was excellent then, and it has lost none of it's charm or quality since. This is a magic escape from the madding crowds of the coast into a serene lush world nestling in the folds of the Pyrenees. Comfortable rooms, and an excellent restaurant, all with superb service.

This hotel/restaurant is situated in the quaint basque hamlet of Biriatou. The food is locally sourced and typical of the region. It is well prepared and reasonable price wise for the area. The service is excellent. The terrace facing the garden is a very enjoyable place to eat.

This charming hotel is ideally placed to begin an exploration of the Pyrenees when approaching from the west. Situated in a neat and historic village with an inn but little else,the hotel is within sight and sound of the Spanish motorway A 63.

We arrived in the pouring rain with a dripping dog and were made most welcome in this rather plush hotel. We agree with a previous reviewer that the room was 'cosy', but I think that this goes with the unique character of the building and the region. Everything was spotless, the decor lovely, and I can't fault it. I too... More
