Country house Rear Basque Country and Bearn
Living in the countryside means enjoying nature and peace on a daily basis, while immersing yourself in a land steeped in history. You can succumb to the stone vaults and woodwork of a 12th century Béarnais farmhouse or prefer a traditional Basque house on one hectare of meadow. Opt for a Renaissance castle with outbuildings or a large family house with a greenhouse, a barn on the banks of a river, ideal setting for lovers of equestrian sports. The green Basque hinterland and Béarn are home to all types of country houses where it is good to live in complete privacy and freedom.
