What makes Domaine de Lana a great holiday rental

  • A modern development with a good spec and fresh interiors
  • Shared pool on-site
  • A few minutes by car to gorgeous St Jean de Luz

Best for:

Good for families in summer who want the chance for kids to make friends and meet and play safely but who don't want the larger, holiday complex experience. Outside the summer season the venue works well for couples who want to explore the Basque Country or play golf - this would be an excellent base.

Suitability for:

  • Toddlers - cot & high chair can be hired. No play areas on-site and the swimming pool has quite a deep shallow end. Superb toddler-friendly beach at St Jean de Luz, though.
  • Teenagers - quiet location but close to the coast for surfing, shopping, etc. Tennis, golf, surfing, diving & horse-riding nearby.
  • Reduced mobility - one of the houses offers ground-floor-only accommodation (please enquire).

Anything to watch out for?

This is not a park with lots of facilities on-site. It is better for families who prefer a quieter retreat.  Unfortunately, BBQs are not allowed here.

Why St Jean de Luz?
One of our favourites. A colourful and proudly Basque fishing port and holiday resort. A superb & safe town beach, excellent for the 'little ones'.

Kids will love Wow! Park near Urrugne - an adventure park for all ages.

Cycling, MTB & Hiking is a passion in this corner of France. The Basque Country offers great road biking and there are superb off-road MTB trails too. Hiking routes are plentiful, whether it's a family walking trail or a serious 'GR' expedition! You can hire bikes in St Jean de Luz.

Diving is a speciality of the Basque coast. Dive schools at Socoa 3km, also schools at Hendaye Plage.

Horse-riding and trekking is also popular in the rolling Basque Country hills.

Urrugne: the local town of Urrugne is a Basque delight. Half-timbered homes line the main street, their ox blood red frames typifying the local architecture. From the village, a steep road leads to the village chapel, Notre-Dame-de-Socorri. The chapel itself is unremarkable but the views from the summit are wonderful. The three Western Pyrénéan peaks of la Rhune, Jaozkibel and Les Trois Couronnes are all visible, rising above the rolling green foothills. Take a picnic and relax here for a few hours with a bottle of Irouleguy, the local vin. Urrugne also offers basic shops for your stay - butcher, baker, pharmacy, etc.

There are a couple of local châteaux worth a visit. Château d'Uturbie, on the edge of Urrugne, was the home of medieval viscounts and dates back to the mid 14th century. Wellington used it as a base during his rampage through south west France. Today there are fine collections of antique furnishings and tapestries.

The protected area of rocky coastline known as the Domaine d'Abbadie, is well worth a visit for walk and picinic. In fact, the rugged coastline between Hendaye and St Jean de Luz (Route de Corniche) is a reminder of Cornwall's north coast, with its pounding seas and sandy coves. Thankfully it's a bit warmer here. The cliffside 19th century Château d'Abbadie is an enjoyable stop. The château was built by an Irish-Basque explorer with a fondness for astrology. The château contains some interesting and very fine furnishings and has its own observatory.

The beautiful Florenia Floral Gardens near Urrugne is another good option for spending a pleasant half-day (the parc covers 45 acres).

St Jean de Luz: whether its beaches, boutiques, culture, restaurants or festivals you are looking for, this town is hard to beat. Stylish but without the pretence of the Riviera, St Jean is an authentic and colourful seaside town and working fishing port. It has plenty to offer discerning visitors of all ages. In particular, this is a great place to eat out - St Jean de Luz is recognised as the capital of Basque cuisine and is noted for its seafood (it is one of Rick Stein’s favourite places).

Hendaye Plage: sitting at the foot of the Pyrénées bordering Spain and the Atlantic ocean, Hendaye boasts an enviable and spectacular location, dominated by a 3kms stretch of sandy beach. The ocean location means there are all sorts of watersports to be sampled here...surfing, kite-surfing, wind-surfing, sailing, kayaking as well as diving in some of the quieter coves along the coast. Also, situated at the marina, is Serge Blanco's thalassotherapy centre and Hendaye casino.

Try the old town (Béhobie) for a more authentically 'Basque' experience, whether it be a pintxos bar or a game of pelote.

Boat trips run up and down the Bidassoa river, including trips to the Spanish side of the Bay. A visit to the village of Hondarrabia (Fuentarrabia) is a must. Famous for its tapas restaurants and bars, it's amazing to sense the immediate cultural change of being in Spain.

Service: Called me back when looking for a property and were even to find something for us,

Product: A nice property. Lots of space for us to move around.everthiing worked within the property. Layout not so good in the kitchen. Cutlery etc in a cupboard near the Tv, not enough space on the sofa for 5 of us,not able to keep windows open downstairs as dangerous (opened inside instead of out),We needed the car to get everywhere,thought the beds were changed during the second week. No cleaning products to clean property left.

On 17-Aug-2017 we responded:

Product Comment: I agree, the villas are nice at Domaine de Lana - modern, clean, attractively designed. I imagine after the bustle of staying at Les Villas Anadara in Biarritz last year, Domaine de Lana would have felt much quieter. That can be an advantage or disadvantage depending on individual preference. It is definitely a secluded venue and a car is necessary for all trips unless you have bikes and then the St Jean de Luz is within easy reach as is the village of Urrugne for the daily boulangerie run!

Service: Justin really listened to our family's needs and chose us a holiday that perfectly matched what we were looking for. Really helpful service from his colleague too with regards to invoicing and other small requests. We will definitely use you again!

Product: Wonderful property - clean, modern and well-equipped and lots of space too! The kids could roam safely and made lots of friends and the pool was really well maintained. Just perfect!

Service Comment: Fantastic! Great to hear that your holiday was such a success. This corner of France (Basque Country) is do distinctive. It's so satisfying when clients write so glowingly about discovering a new destination. Glad that you liked Domaine de Lana too - I think it works especially well for families with pre-teen children.

Service: Good service from beginning to end. Gave all the required information and advice. Would use again.

Product: Good house obviously modern with good quality appliances in kitchen. Ideal location to explore the region, St Jean, Basque villages, Hendaye and San Sebastián. Ver hot when we were there but house was cool, good for ourselves and 2 dogs. The place is dog friendly but no obvious dog walks close by. We may have been 1st users of the house this season as we found a few cobwebs but the house was generally clean. The outside had bird mess on the patio and furniture which we had to clean and garden looked like it could do with some tlc. The rep Pascale was good and helpful. Overall was good for the price we paid but I would be very disappointed if I had the same house at the high season price of £2400 per week.

On 30-Jun-2016 we responded:

Service Comment: Very much appreciate your endorsement, and pleased that overall the house was suitable for you, and your dogs! We are raising the exterior maintenance points, as this should have been sorted whatever the time of year. I agree the low season prices are amazing; the peak season price, if shared between two families (it sleeps up to 8), we think is actually quite competitive for this area and standard of rental. Alex

Service: Very good

Product: The property was very well maintained however it is unsuitable for young children unless a stairs guard is provided, also plastic plates cups cutlery would be useful, access to some English channels would be helpful, a play area for young children of some description is needed as we had to use facilities of nearby campsite , we thoroughly enjoyed our stay

On 10-Jul-2015 we responded:

Service Comment: Thanks very much for providing your feedback. The houses are really smart - glad that you enjoyed your stay. You're right - a play area on the site would be nice. In fact, we recently decided to move Domaine de Lana out of our 'family parks' category as it doesn't quite belong there. We're promoting it now as a regular holiday rental - with a great location, shared pool and smart, modern accommodation! Thanks again for your comments. Justin
