Ostapé is a 5-star hotel located in the village of Bidarray, halfway between the mountains and Biarritz on the coast, which is a 30-minute drive away. The location was great with wonderful views over the countryside from our room, the restaurant and the pool. We were in the highest building, which probably had the best views. Golf carts are provided for getting around the property as the hillside is quite steep. Everyone was very accommodating, including the staff in the restaurant, where the meals were excellent. Turn down service included replacing towels and freshening up the bath, which was nice. Anything we requested, like a bucket of ice or extra hangers were brought to the room quickly and with a smile. They made an effort to congratulate us on our wedding anniversary, which as a same-sex couple, is very appreciated.
In the Aquitaine region, this hotel is one mile from Itxassou Train Station and 4 miles from the center of Espelette. It offers free Wi-Fi access, an outdoor swimming pool and a terrace. Delightful small hotel with excellent parking. Family run with three generations involved - all very helpful. All rooms were easily accessible for those with limited mobility. Food was relatively simple but beautifully cooked and presented. On our last night the restaurant was officially closed but was actually open for residents - much appreciated, particularly as we knew the restaurant was doing lunch for the local "vide grenier" the following day. Very well located for touring the Basque country.
A remote unspoilt Basque Pyrenean village with fascinating balconied church and walks in all directions. Public transport access is difficult- station is a couple of kilometres from the village and has one train eachway a day in very early morning down the valley to Bayonne and in the evening up the valley to St Jean Pied de Port. Possible to enjoy without a car but challenging. Help and advice on taxis needed. In winter no restaurant/hotel (to mid April) in village and good wayside Pizza (Didier) was a kilometre up the busy road. Surprisingly there was a post office.
Very small village on a popular road through the Basque country. Has a pizza shop, a hotel/restaurant which does traditional reasonably priced meals and a biscuit shop. otherwise not much happening. There are a couple of sign-posted walks which start in Louhossoa and apparently the info sheet can be picked up from the mairie.
