We spent a lovely 4 nights at Chateau d'Urtubie in July 2015. We had a very friendly welcome by the current owner, the Count de Coral who showed us around the castle. Our (family) room was suitably grand but still had air conditioning and TV. There is a restaurant a short wal away, but we preferred the short drive to... More

We were delighted to come and stay at the Chateau d'Urtubie. It is exactly what a chateau ought to be complete with moat, remnants of the drawbridge, ramparts, keep, turrets, etc., etc. At the same time as being impressively romantic, it is wonderfully comfortable, and still feels like staying in a private home. The Count was a charming host and... More

We were received personally by the very friendly proprietor and Count of the Castle, who showed us also around in the very stylish place. The room and bath was large, xtremely tastefully furnished and decorated, with magnificent views into the park. The breakfast offered a broad variety, much more than you would expect from a normal french "continental" breakfast. Very... More

We stayed here for a few days in early October. The Count was so enthusiastic about his much loved family home and takes so much time to show you around the fantastic public rooms and make you feel welcome. We were offered one of two rooms on the top floor (there is a lift installed but we enjoyed walking up... More

Staying in a 14th Century château was a unique and very enjoyable experience which we would thoroughly recommend. The Count's tour and explanation of its historical significance was extremely interesting. Lovely grounds.

We spent 2 glorious nights in the Chateau d'Urtubie! The history of this place is amazing, dating back to the 13th century! You can still see the spider marks in the stone facade, caused by the cannon ball attack from the Wellington army. We received a personal tour by the Count himself, who is an actual descendant of the family... More

The chateau is a very impressive place to stay while visiting the Basque part of France close to the sea and the border with Spain. Although the main entrance to the chateau faces a very busy two lane road, it is screened by a wall of tall trees and landscaping, and our room, which was located more in the center... More

Initial thought is of a great looking old chateau but damn close to the autoroute. Thankfully once inside there is no noise at all and the charm of the place wins you over. Worth spending a bit more for one of the top rooms but very comfortable nonetheless. Mine host the Comte "Joe" Coral welcomes you and gives great advice... More
