Want to check out southwestern France’s Basque region but aren’t sure buzzy Biarritz is really your thing? The Basque-style country-house Hotel Laminak, built in a converted 18th-century farmhouse and set at the foot of a mountain, offers rural peace and quiet, but within easy reach of the town’s amenities.
Assuming you’re not in Biarritz to take advantage of its amazing surfing or iconic casino, what does the area offer? Well, there’s plenty of beautiful countryside to explore, and Milady and Marbella Beaches are just 10 minutes’ drive away. Golfers are well catered for -- hotel guests receive discounts at Golf d'Arcangues Golf Club and Ilbarritz Golf Club, both a 10-minute drive away. Further afield, the city of Bayonne is about 20 minutes’ drive away and is home to the Basque Museum and the 13th-century Bayonne Cathedral. There are many local villages with restaurants and shops that you can explore as well.
The hotel restaurant serves a continental breakfast but you’ll need to go elsewhere for lunch and dinner -- not a hardship in an area known for its gastronomy, and the hotel is more than happy to help with recommendations. There is an outdoor swimming pool, though, as well as a sauna and private gardens. The hotel offers free WiFi throughout.
There are three room types, Classic, Tradition and Privilege. All rooms have double beds and private bathrooms -- Privilege rooms offer more space and have either a private terrace (with views of the garden or pool) or a lounge.
