Wow!!!!! never expected to find something so beautiful and comfortable in such a little town in france. It is a renovated and beautifully decorated B & B. It is in a great location, close to restaurants and shops. Our host Maire Jose who owns and runs the place is a wonderful person, very hospitable. She provided us with lots of information about the region. The breakfast she serves is amazing. The coffee is fantastic and the variety of jam( all home made, I saw her making green tomato jam) are so good. Her garden is beautiful. Marie Jose puts 100% effort to make her B & B a memorable place for her guests. There are many B & B in this little town but this is really a different one (very clean and very comfortable). We loved the place so much that we decided to stay longer. We are hoping we can go back next year again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This residence with harmonious proportions and beautiful luminosity owes its name to its slate roof, characteristic to the Soule province. The House anchors near the gates of ramparts of the so picturesque town of Saint Jean Pied de Port, mythical stopping place of the pilgrims of Santiago de Compostela (Saint Jacques de Compostelle). From there, within a radius of one hour, you can discover the Basque Coast, make a Spanish escapade or say Hello to the South Peak of Ossau (Pic du Midi d'Ossau). From the entrance, heart of the house, to the pink sandstone paving, flies away the staircase towards rooms. In the early hours, your shutters will open on the garden or on the slopes of the Arradoy covered with the vineyards on Irouleguy. Chestnut wooden floor, whitewash, river shingle walls contribute to a feeling of serene sobriety. In the book corner with patina woodwork, hearts and stars radiate in marquetry, delicate symbol of well being. The big oak table calls for the sharing of a seasonal tasty and simple cuisine. For your hostess, Ziberoa is a story of love at first sight when dicovering EUSKARA's landcapes and culture. They are waiting for you for a day time or for a full life. ... more less
