Built by architect Henri Godbarge, this gem sits in the heart of a 5-ha park between Saint-Jean-de-luz and Hendaye. « Built in 1911, completed in 1927, the estate combines sea and mountain views », says Barnes côte Basque. The entrance hall with galleries
has a 7-m ceiling while the triple living room houses a fireplace, wood floors and panellings. A former chapel with stained-glass windows could be turned into a study. In all, there are 14 bedrooms including a Master suite with dressing, bathroom and a private terrace/balcony with sea and mountain views. Other features include Virac murals (1933), Mauméjan’s stained-glass windows, a separate apartment and a 400 sq m orangery. The listed estate also houses a park filled with 100-year-old trees, an outdoor swimming pool and lawns. The estate is only 20 km away from Biarritz international airport.
