The Domaine de Bassilour was the highlight of our trip to France. We stayed in the beautifully renovated 18th-Century chateau next to the 16th-Century farmhouse. The bedroom and bathroom were very spacious with all the comforts of modern times plus an interior design in keeping with the historical origin of the building. The grounds were spectacular, and outside our bedroom window, we viewed the gate into the chateau and horses grazing in the field. The staff was superb, and they really went out of their way to assist us. To experience the riches of the area, it's best to have a car, and since we had not arranged for one, the director drove us to Biarritz airport to rent one. When you stay here, be sure to sign up for the breakfast with the delicious home-made breads and jams.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sophia room, which we really liked.

Stayed there for a week in Sept 2012. Room could have been bigger perhaps but not a problem. Staff lovely and helpful with ideas of where to visit. Rooms very pretty and breakfast room especially so with breakfast good value (Oscar available for adoption daily) Bidart is 4kms and a good town, try out restaurant Auguste near the beach, set menu at 11Euro great value. Also restaurant Moulin about 700 metres from hotel, GREAT food and value ! Biarritz readily accessible 7km away, wife loved people watching, fab Mexican rest - Tex Mex ( go for owners recommendation , hes fluent in English and rightly proud of his produce!). Visit San Sebastien , walk the prom, visit the old town, tapas amazing, just get good directions to/from SS. Coastal route from Ciboure to Hendaye a must see also. Beautiful area with great scenery, we had a ball !

Room Tip: No air conditioning, bring a fan !

We are happy you liked your stay by us. Next time we can lend you fans just ask for it. When the temperature is normal the thick stone walls keeps the house quite cool but this year September was very warm.

We went to a weeding in the Basque country and we stay there for a night. It is a beautiful domaine with a nice garden. The room was really cute and quiet. We loved the little "castle" where we stayed.
We got free coffe, shampoo, rasor kit, shoe shine...it was perfect to be ready for the weeding.
As the weeding finished late, we did not get the chance to try their breakfast. Maybe next time!
We loved it.

I stayed in two different rooms,for several nights each during my stay here.Rooms which are located at the front of the hotel will have a lot of noise from traffic.The hotel seems to be on the main road between Bidart and Biarritz! Traffic all day and night; this is probably only in high season.
Guests have to pay an additional 10 euros if they want clean towels, bit cheeky. The first room (not in the main building) had self catering facilites and I found the room to be a little dirty.Certain items such as cooking utensils needed replacing.
The second room (in the main hotel building) was very clean but didn't have curtains only sparse net curtain which were useless in keeping out sunlight, so expect to wake up at dawn.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel.

Stayed for only one night, but wished I had stayed for more. Excellent service, gorgeous little place and very easy to get to Bidart which is a lovely little seaside village with excellent views.

We recently held our wedding at Domaine de Bassilour, with about 75 guests who had travelled from all across the world to be there. The venue was absolutely amazing: every single member of staff, including the owners, were attentive, perfectionist and professional, from our first meeting to the final de-brief after the event. Our day felt like something from the movies and all our guests who came felt like they were part of something very special indeed. I would highly recommend this beautiful, understated and romantic location for anything it has to offer - a night's stay in the Basque country or a special event. Very special memories indeed. Thank-you Chris, Charlotte, Marina, Paulina, Franck and Paul - to you all who work with and at Domaine de Bassilour!! xx
