About the property


Located next to the church of Ciboure (17th century), and opposite the famous house Ravel where the composer was born, twenty steps from the port and a few minutes walk from the three beaches of the bay of Saint Jean de Luz, this house enjoys an exceptional location and very quiet. All shops and the Sunday market are within a radius of 200 meters and several restaurants, gourmet or traditional.

The house is spread over three levels. On the ground floor and the first floor are four bedrooms and three bathrooms.

On the second floor are, in a very large open space, the living room, the dining room and the kitchen, giving on one side the hanging garden which adjoins the church, and on the other side on the street and the port. . The house has been renovated in 2016/2017 and has a very good level of equipment and comfort.

The garden is a small jewel, facing south, consisting of half a large terrace very protected, ideal for taking meals (plancha available) or relax in the spring.


Ciboure / Saint Jean de Luz is one of the most beautiful sites of the Basque coast and occupies a central place to fully enjoy the cultural and natural wealth of the country.

The bay is ideal for all water sports, swimming, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, paddle ... The good swimmers can cross the bay from the dike of the port to the dike horses in peace (1,5km) . The swimming and the beach are supervised by lifeguards. The body of water is usually calm and ideal for a family stay. Several activity clubs welcome children during the summer season.

Ciboure / Saint Jean de Luz is located at the foot of the French and Spanish mountains. Nature lovers and hikers have an exceptional choice of possibilities. The path that runs along the Spanish coast from Hondarribia to San Sebastian is a marvel. The views of Jaizkibel on the coast are magnificent. The Rhune (900m) is accessible by very different paths, from Olhette, Sare, Ascain, Saint Ignace pass or Biriatou. All these departures are located less than 10km from the house. Farther on, going up the Nivelle valley, the magnificent villages of Sare, Ainhoa, Saint Etienne de Baigorry, Bidarray, Itxassou ... are also the starting points for walks of beauty towards the Pic d'Iparla, the Artzamendi, the peak Jara ...

In addition to hiking, the region's sports offer is inexhaustible. Surfing is practiced in Hendaye or on the beaches of Ghetary, Bidart, Biarritz. The golf courses of Nivelle (2 km from the house) and Chantaco (4 km from the house) are very accessible. Saint Jean de Luz has a very nice tennis club and a very well equipped swimming pool.

The cultural heritage of the region is also very rich.

A few minutes walk from the house you can visit the Louis XIV house and the historical sites of the royal wedding of Louis XIV and Marie Thérèse. Churches, old Basque villages, caves, cromlechs, regional museums, botanical garden ... book some very nice surprises.

The Spanish border is only 10 km away and you can easily continue your exploration of the Basque country in Spain.

Un super séjour en famille

  • 5 of 5

La maison est magnifique, tout à fait conforme à la description. Elle allie le charme de l'ancien et tout le confort. La pièce à vivre est très agréable et se prête aux repas et soirées en famille ( nous étions 9 ). Facile de se garer hors saison. Commerces tout proches. Accueil très sympathique, hôte toujours disponible. Nous garderons un excellent souvenir de notre séjour à Ciboure.

Excellent !

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison de charme. Très bien située et bien équipée. Seul petit bémol... un nid de frelons ou grosses guêpes installé dans le mur de l'église à côté... Ca perturbe quelque peu les repas. Mais sinon je recommande vivement !
