HOTELLERIE DES FRERES IBARBOURE, BIDART

As you would expect from the name, this hotel is very much a family affair. The fraternal partnership of yore has become, since Xaby Ibarboure married Soline in 2008, that classically French venture of père et fils, mère et belle-fille. And it works a treat.

The location between Guéthary and Bidart is within minutes of the coast and yet a serene calm prevails in the hotel’s private parc. Even so, the accommodations are well set apart from the restaurant so that nothing will disturb your R & R. Their little loggias are perfect for a leisurely breakfast of home-baked goodies. Bedrooms, a happy mix of contemporary and not so new, have been designed with plenty of space, as have the state-of the-art bathrooms. Each has a separate shower and a bath or whirlpool bath if preferred.

Philippe Ibarboure’s culinary reputation stands high in the Pays Basque. It is founded on an uncompromising drive for perfection, an eye for gastronomic and visual innovation and a passion for the natural riches of the region. A Michelin star is just recognition for his endeavour. When not dining on the terrace, you will be welcomed in the atmospheric dining room of the original 18th century house.

The Hostellerie is not as well known to English speakers as some other nearby establishments – perhaps because the website is available only in French and Spanish? It is, however, very special.
