The hotel is two kilometres from Golf d'Arcangues Golf Club and four kilometres from Ilbarritz Golf Club. Milady Beach, on France’s Atlantic coast, is 4.7 kilometres away while slightly further up the coast is Marbella Beach. Bayonne, the closest city, 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.
