I stayed in Bidart for four days with my sister and we loved this hotel. The rooms are newly refurbished and small but extremely comfortable - lovely bed, fridge, waterfall shower etc. The heated pool is perfect for relaxing and as the hotel is small, we often had the pool area to ourselves which was a treat. The staff could... More

"Itsas mendia" in Basque means "sea mountains". From this small 15 bedroom hotel there are views in both directions - out to sea and across to the foothills of the Pyrenees. The top floor of the hotel has the best views but sea and mountains can be seen from the ground floor. The hotel was extensively modernized and refurbished five... More

This hotel is a class apart from anything else nearby. It's a very short walk from the square in the middle of the town, so it's very close to bars and restaurants. Diagonally opposite is the route for pedestrian access to the lovely beach; an easy walk downhill - just leave some in the tank for the walk back up!... More

This is the best kept secret of the french Cote Basque. Great location. Beautiful clean lines. Great beds & bed linen. Wonderful, charming staff, who couldn't do enough. We took the hotel to lodge a large family for a wedding.. lots of world travellers in there and they all loved it. We cannot rte it highly enough.

Hotel Itsas Media is a beautiful hotel in the charming town of Bidart. It is Close to the beach and the old and cosy village centre and within easy access to Biarritz and Bayonne. Bidart is a great starting point for trips in the beautiful Basque countryside. The hotel as such is very old but has been completely renovated recently... More

There is no need to stay in busy Biarritz to see the Basque region; stay here, in this lovely hotel in the small village of Bidart, & you will still be within easy reach of Biarritz, St Jean de Luz, etc. The Itsas Mendea is a small family-owned & run hotel, which means that all staff really do care about...

A top class hotel. Wonderful staff, great rooms, lovely pool so very good on every level. Wish we had stayed longer will defiantly return. The staff could not do enough to help, ordering taxis etc.. Location is very good in the centre of the village 10 minutes drive from Biarritz. Room very quiet, nice beds good linen etc..

Very good breakfast with a large choice of bread and freshly squizzed orange juice and homemade marmelade. Very convenient location for visiting Biarritz, Bayonne and St.Jean de Luze.

The welcome from the staff from the first moment to the end of our 3-day stay was superb. Nothing was too much trouble and they gave us a lead on a superb fish restaurant down by the beach that we would never have found ourselves. The room was superbly designed and comfortable and the facilities were very modern and functional... More
