The existing reviews already say it all but I think that the love and work that Nelly and Troy put into this deserve massive praise! The lodge is a wonderful place to spend days enjoying the beautiful region, either for surfing (which we did), or cycling, walking, swimming, etc. The rooms are very cosy while simple and kept immaculately clean. The common spaces - outdoors kitchen, garden, pool, living room - are very enjoyable and make one feel at home. Troy is a great surfing instructor - patient, knowledgeable and very committed to try and give the best surfing session possible - whilst Nelly puts a superb breakfast everyday.
Hi There, We are so happy we went. It was exactly the way we hoped for and even better. We learned the basics of the lovely sport ‘surfing’, found a peaceful surrounding with outmost friendly hosts and every morning we had our belly’s full of the great breakfast. We definitely would recommend this to everyone. We are coming back, that is for sure.
I stayed at this lovely B&B for 5 nights with my boyfriend- he enjoyed it so much on a visit last year that he wanted to come back, and I see why. 5 stars are not enough! Nelly & Troy are the friendliest and most helpful hosts. Nelly's breakfast spread deserves a special mention - she puts so much care into a delicious selection of bread, cheeses, homemade cakes, and more, and it was a joy to see what she put together for us every morning. I also thoroughly enjoyed swimming in their outdoor heated pool, and Nelly kindly helped me organise beach yoga sessions with the excellent yoga teacher Carmen. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and Nelly & Troy made us feel very welcome. It was also an excellent base from which to explore surrounding spots- towns, beaches, lakes, and Biarritz is only (approx) 45min drive away. Highly recommend staying here!…
I visited The Secret Spot as a sole traveller last year, and revisited this year with my girlfriend. It did not disappoint. And by ‘it’, I do of course really mean Troy and Nelly! This is truly a special place run by special people. They clearly enjoy having guests and create the most relaxed atmosphere. Sure we’ll be back! Adam.
This was my fiancée's third time staying at Secret Spot Lodge and I was delighted she introduced me to it. It's a fantastic little find and Nelly & Troy could not be more accommodating. The accommodation, the pool, the breakfast - everything was absolutely spot on! Everything is catered for including having a kitchen/ BBQ area so eating out every night doesn't have to be the case. There are multiple surf spots a short drive away and Troy can offer both lessons and boards for hire and even soft roof racks too! We look forward to returning again soon :) :)
