About the property

Beauty and authenticity of one of the oldest houses in the Basque coast

Urdelarun is one of the oldest houses on the Basque coast. She has preserved her soul and a unique atmosphere through the centuries.

Ideally located on the Basque Coast between Bidart and Guéthary, as close to Biarritz as St jean de luz, on the foothills of the coast at 1 km 400 from the beach (with a direct access road), a few minutes from mythical surf spots of Parlementia and Lafitenia, Urdelarun benefited from a complete, luminous and artistic renovation with a return of its secular curves in 1993, 1994 and 1995, and a retouch in 2015.

Built very close to the Atlantic coast, this very old Basque farm is immersed in one of the last islets of greenery of the Basque Coast. It is thus protected from the bad weather and noise of the coastal plain (train, road, highway).

The nobility of the old materials used (marble, elm, chestnut, sanitary from the Hotel of the Palace of Biarritz ...) contrasts with the simplicity of the furnishing enriched of some Moroccan colors.

The lush garden, the 2 independent terraces and the courtyard are completely private.

The courtyard has a small pool of very pure water (filtered rainwater) which is not made for lengths but is very playful. The first pool allows diving (with caution); it overflows in a whirlpool which itself cascades in a paddling pool for children.

The house has 2 baths with showers, 3 showers and 3 toilets (2 large family bathrooms, a separate shower, 1 separate WC).

Its access road is private, with parking for 3 cars.

A surfboard will be at your disposal during your stay.

The calm, the antiquity, the beauty of the place make it particularly conducive to meditation, the Tao Chi practiced by the owners, or reading. You will also enjoy a good audio and visual installation with a real high fidelity and a big screen for the cinema.

Urdelarun is a family home and is also suitable for children and babies (beds, games, etc ... that we can lend you).

Urdelarun recovers rainwater and solar energy, has a carbon footprint close to zero, uses a heat pump to heat water and the house, consumes green energy (Enercoop), and has a charging station for your electric vehicles.

A hidden treasure on the Basque coast

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully restored old Basque farmhouse is located perfectly if you are planning to explore the Basque coast. An oasis of peace and quiet just minutes away from the buzzing coast. For us it felt like home instantly, the house has been restored with so much love and care and is very well equipped. The owners are very easy to reach if you need anything and their housekeeper gave us a warm welcome. If you are looking for a private, quiet, well located house I would recommend this hidden treasure!

Le calme de la campagne à 5 minutes des plages

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour dans la maison d'Uderlarun! la maison est très agréable, parfaitement équipée et joliment décorée, on s'y sent bien! Elle est très calme et parfaitement située, loin du tumulte de la côte qui est pourtant très proche, et sa localisation nous a permis de nous déplacer dans toute la région en évitant la route du bord de mer toujours très encombrée.

Merci aux propriétaires pour leur accueil chaleureux!

"Après 15 jours, il fut dur de quitter Urdelarun. Un havre de paix à quelques minutes des plages et à mi-chemin entre Biarritz et Saint-Jean de Luz. Une merveilleuse maison où tout y est : le charme, l''authenticité, les équipements +++, rien ne manque, sans oublier l''accueil chaleureux. Merci encore aux propriétaires pour leur confiance. Nous gardons précieusement cette adresse, nous y reviendrons."

"Ce lieu ne vous laissera pas indifférent : cette ferme historique rénovée avec talent est un havre de paix coté campagne de Bidart mais non loin de la plage. L''équipement est au niveau. Un très bon moment un peu en dehors de la furia cotière."

  • 5 of 5

"Une harmonie parfaite entre ce lieu chargé d''histoire restauré à merveille, et une facilité à vivre. Un havre de paix où l''on peut tour à tour profiter du soleil autour de la piscine, puis du côté jardin pour un moment calme propice à la lecture. la maison est facile d''entretien et tres accueillante. Sa localisation permet de se déplacer en dehors de la route nationale côtière."
