Design Basque, luxury villa to rent in South West France

This modern villa for rent was designed by an architect to celebrate openness; a bright and spacious interior flows easily and makes socialising a dream, while generously appointed windows and sliding doors make sure you don’t miss a drop of the splendid outdoor surroundings.

Contemporary trends are cleverly combined with traditional Basque style, and the red wooden slats on the façade firmly anchors the property in its historical location. Inside, the décor is kept to a minimum, opting for a handful of high-quality pieces. Elegant and carefully chosen furniture provides just what you need to feel at home while leaving plenty of leeway to use the spaces as you feel best and make the place feel like home. The layout is pleasant and ideal for socialising – take your pick from lounges, a dining room or the terrace. Whatever time of day it is, you’ll have the perfect spot to settle down and watch the sun as it rises, peaks and sets.
The villa is set in over 2000 m² of garden and offers total privacy – the mountains around the villa are the only onlookers. And if you fancy a change from swimming in your own heated pool, then the beach is just down the road.

Flanked by the Atlantic Ocean and the Pyrenees mountains, the French Basque Country boasts a variety of scenic landscapes, with long stretches of sandy beach to the west, snow-capped mountains to the south, and a host of fertile green lands brimming with history in the middle. Dense forests and shepherds guarding their flocks rub shoulders with luxury spa resorts and sought-after surf spots.

If there’s one thing that’s taken seriously in south west France, it’s life’s simple pleasures – food and wine to be shared with friends. Enjoy fresh seafood, local goats’ cheese, Bayonne cured ham, all manner of things livened up with a sprinkling of Espelette pepper, and Basque cakes, all washed down with wines from Irouleguy or Patxaran.

This air-conditioned villa can comfortably accommodate 2 families or 5 couples.

Rental villa with a pool in South West France: things to see and do nearby

- Basque Country is surf country: hit the waves and ride the tube or stay on dry land and just spectate. Between the powerful swell and picturesque beaches, there’s something for everyone. But that’s not the only sport round here – try your hand at the Basque game of pelote, watch a corrida, take a leisurely hike in the mountains, do a spot of white-water rafting, take to the airs for a parascending ride, or work on your golf swing.

- Visit Biarritz, a seaside town with lots to offer. The museum is an ode to the town’s cosmopolitan personality, with the Russian orthodox church being another example. For a panoramic view of the Basque coast, head to the lighthouse and climb the 248 steps. Sports fans can test or expand their knowledge at the Olympics museum, while the aquarium and the Cité de l’Océan make a great day out for the family.

- St Jean de Luz is a seafaring town, with many streets named after illustrious sailors. But they’re not the only historical figures that have left their mark on the town; the house of French King Louis 14th is a delightful example of 17th-century architecture, and much of the furniture is still there, including the King’s bedroom.

- Visit the local towns. The coast is dotted with lovely beach resorts such as Anglet, Guitar, Bidart, and Ciboure and picturesque villages like Sarre and Espelette.

- Go up Rhune mountain. Chug up the 905m of altitude in the 1924 vintage train or take the longer route and walk up. Either way, you’ll be handsomely rewarded by the stunning panoramic views at the top.

- Family days out at a water park: Head inland to Bid'a Parc in Bidart or Aquazone Aquatic Parc in Saint-Pée-Sur-Nivelle for a fun-packed day whizzing down waterslides and splashing around in pools.

- Taste the local delicacies. No trip to France would be complete without food! The Basque region is home to the Espelette pepper, so many dishes come with a spicy kick. Don’t miss out on the locally-produced goats’ cheese and trout which is fished fresh from the torrents. Restaurants in the towns of St Jean de Luz and Ciboure serve a traditional fish soup calle ttoro, piperade, and axoa, a spicy veal ragout.
Almonds are plentiful in the region and are used in Basque cake as well as macaroons and a similar local variety called mouchous. Finally, the Basque Country has its own type of cider – an apple wine called sagarno, which is less fizzy and drier than usual cider.
