We spent just one night at Maison Marchand on our journey from Caen to Portugal. We love the villages of the Pays Basque with their white and red timbered houses and this property is sited right in the Main Street, ten meters from the boulangerie and thirty metres from the square. Parking was easy even in July. Gilbert and Valerie... More

We stayed here for a week this April to attend a wedding in town. We were in the Pigeonnier and the room has everything we needed. The hosts Valerie and Gilbert were most welcoming. They made us feel at home. Breakfasts and the dinner were scrumptious. The town is lovely and a good base to explore this region. Valerie and... More

May 2014. I have just spent 6 days at Maison Marchand in the centre of the beautiful artisans village of La Bastide Clairence. Everything about this restored farmhouse is delightful, well presented, welcoming and comfortable. I felt totally at home and being there for 6 days, really loved having a sitting area as well as my bedroom. However, it was... More

We stayed two nights last week with Valery and Gilbert in their very attractive village house. The rooms, service and meals were all excellent and can be thoroughly recommended. We were also given very useful advice on scenic tours and what to see in the region, including detailed notes and the loan of appropriate maps. We would certainly stay there... More

My family's stay at Maison Marchand was the highlight of our July vacation to the Basque Country. From the second we arrived, we were treated like family by Valerie and Gilbert. We occupied two rooms, both of which were absolutely charming and comfortable... and air-conditioned. A bonus for my family was Valerie and Gilbert's fluency in both French and English.... More

Hello to the three of you, your comments are much appreciated, as are those from everyone who has written about us. Thanks to you and all the interesting discussions over dinner and breakfast, we "travelled" to the Bahamas without leaving our home - that is one of the most enriching things about opening one's home to travellers from all over...

La Bastide Clairence is a lovely village, and Maison Marchand makes it a "must go". Yes, it is worth the detour. Valerie, Gilbert and Alex will welcome you like a family member and will go the extra mile for you - always with a smile; the home is a delight, the rooms are comfortable, quiet and tastefully decorated.

Hospitality doesn't come better than this! La Maison Marchand is located in a beautifully quaint artisan village which needs a good few days to explore properly and the day trip opportunities are endless. Val, Gilbert and their son Alex are wonderful hosts. Their gorgeous daily breakfast far exceeds what you would expect - warmed fresh bread and croissants, local jams... More

Valerie and Gilbert are splendid hosts. The room was spacious, the bed large and comfortable and the room boasted a hospitality tray - a rarity in France. We were fortunate to be staying on a night when dinner was available and thoroughly enjoyed Valerie's delicious meal. Gilbert is enthusiastic about the area and provided maps and welcome guidance on places... More
