The Basque-style country house Hotel Laminak is in Biarritz in southwestern France, close to the Spanish border and 12 minutes’ drive from the coast. The hotel, built in a converted 18th-century country house and at the foot of a mountain, has 12 guestrooms, an outdoor swimming pool with a sauna, and private gardens.
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.
Facilities at the hotel include an outdoor swimming pool with a sauna, a library, a terrace with views of the gardens, a restaurant that serves a continental breakfast and a reception that is open 8am-8pm. The hotel offers free Wi-Fi throughout.
There are three room types, Classic, Tradition and Privilege. All rooms have double beds and private bathrooms while Privilege rooms have either a private terrace, with views of the garden or pool, or a lounge.
