I traveled by train with my 83 yr old mother. We trekked to the Maison on foot, very much to the surprise of our hosts. We had no clue that we should visit this area via a car. Nonetheless, we stayed 6 nights and enjoyed long walks, easy hikes, and the lovely little town of St. Jean Pied de Port. The market was our favorite so we were lucky to stumble across it.
We took the train to Bayonne one day and to Spain on another day. Train service was limited but did allow for some day trips.
Our hosts could not have been nicer and their home is quite lovely. We had our bedroom and a bathroom down the hall that was shared by other guests. It was not a problem. Everything was extremely clean.
There was no common room to gather other than for breakfast where we all sat together.
I hope to return with a car and explore more of the region.More
