  • Toddlers - Good: large & private grounds but note there is a stream at the border of the grounds, approx 25 metres from the villa. St Jean de Luz has a fantastic child-friendly beach

With its beautiful crescent of sandy beach, the bay of St Jean de Luz is a real draw for family holidays. But there's much more to the town than this. It's the culinary capital of French Basque Country with its fishing port serving up the daily catch (thon basquaise - Basque-style tuna - is the town's signature dish) there are many excellent restaurants to choose from. Add to this a gorgeous covered market, side streets lined with independent boutiques, plus hotels specalising in spa & well-being treatements - this is a fabulous destination for couples all year round.


High quality eco-friendly villa with 450m2 accommodation in highly secluded 1.7 ha grounds

Villa la Rhune is a quality holiday villa offering vast accommodation and equipped to a high standard. The owners live here 8-10 months of the year and this helps give the villa an ambience of warmth and conviviality, often lacking in modern holiday villas.

House Rules

No smoking & no pets


The villa is situated in the rolling green coutnryside of the Pays Basque yet just minutes from the buzz of St Jean de Luz and the Basque coast. The location is very tranquil and private and affords stunning views of the hills, farms and distant mountains - in particular the peak of La Rhune. It's just under 10 minutes' drive into St Jean de Luz and less than that to the two local villages (Ascain and Urrugne) where you'll find shops for your daily supplies plus restaruants too. The Spanish border is in fact less than 5km from the villa. With the autoroute reached in around 5 mins it's also a great base to explore north (Biarritz & Bayonne) and south (San Sebastian, Bilbao and Pamplona).
