Calm, luxury and pleasure in the Basque Country. Elegance and refinement in nature. Welcome to Christophe Le Du Goupy's hotel.
“In an exceptional setting, we offer a high-end service in privacy.”
“Comfort, service, luxury and serenity are the hallmarks of this hotel”, says Christophe, manager inspired by this 5-star hotel, Auberge Ostapé, The Originals Collection. Located in Bidarray, in the heart of the hills of the Basque Country, this haven of peace combines, with extreme refinement, tradition and modernity in an idyllic and preserved setting. The hotel has 22 elegant and independent suites divided into 5 villas surrounded by a 45-hectare park, in southern France. You will criss-cross this area by electric carts. They will take you to the gourmet restaurant, heated pool or spa. A timeless domain dedicated to relaxation, well-being and serenity, your paradise near St-Jean-Pied-de-Port.
The 22 suites of the hotel invite you to enter a singular world of softness and refinement. They are housed in 5 villas spread over this vast area of 54 ha. Le Cayolar, La Tonne, La Palombière, Le Haras and L’Auberge showcase elegant and comfortable suites from 45 to 91 m2. Each has its own entrance, a terrace, a balcony overlooking the nature. Inside, each piece of furniture was bargain hunted, each bedspread specially chosen. “Fireplaces or four-poster beds: there is something for everyone”, recalls Christophe.

The hotel has its own restaurant, Lore Ttipia, which offers a superb panoramic terrace. You will discover a cuisine that gives pride of place to Basque culinary traditions. To make sure your day gets off to the right start, Christophe offers a variety of breakfast options, either as a buffet or a continental breakfast, served in an elegant room, on the terrace or in guests’ rooms.
Located in the heart of the hills of the Basque Country in Bidarray, the hotel invites you to discover the riches of a surprising region.
BERA, THE RHUNEThis mountain, the Rhune, remains emblematic of the French Basque Country. Larrun, in Basque, rises to 900 m. Its summit (marked by a television transmitter) offers a splendid panorama of the ocean, the Landes forest, the Basque Pyrenees mountains and, in the south, the Bidassoa valley. It can be reached by a small rack railway, dating from 1924.
THE KAKUETTA GORGESIf you like the nature and the spectacular walks, go to admire the Kakuetta gorges, carved into the limestone. The entrance to the “Grand Étroit” is the most extraordinary passage. It is a canyon, only 3 to 10 meters wide and more than 200 meters deep. The path approaches the torrent you cross on footbridges. It ends with a view of a cascade 20 m high formed by a resurgence. A cave decorated with stalactites and giant stalagmites marks the end of this magnificent course.
CAMBO-LES-BAINS, VILLA ARNAGAThis amazing villa was built by Edmond Rostand, thanks to the rights of Cyrano de Bergerac. The huge villa Arnaga, Basque-labourdin style, stands on promontory landscaped gardens. It features wood panelling, decorative paintings and tile friezes, trompe l'oeil, stained glass... A particularly moving and refined house in which you will discover many documents about the career of the playwright.
CIBOURE, THE BASQUE CORNICEFor lovers of beautiful walks, this “Basque Cornice” is ideal. First step, the port of Socoa. From the semaphore, admire the view that extends to the south-west on the Basque coast, Cape Figuier, Spain, and Biarritz. Beautiful cliffs plunge into the Atlantic. Follow the coastline to Hendaye: lined with gorse, the road approaches the cliffs of Socoa.
In an idyllic setting, the hotel puts at your disposal a seminar room perfectly equipped and air-conditioned.
In the old restored farmhouse with exposed stone walls and natural light, this 65 m2 room can accommodate up to 42 people in seminar, theatre or cocktail seating configurations.
