About our home

Come and stay in our beautiful 18 century manor house with bags of character, a lovely garden well stocked with fruit and vegetables, hens, fresh eggs and large heated swimming pool. We are situated a short drive from the popular resorts of Biarritz, Bayonne, St Jean de Luz and the surfing destination, Hossegor. The Spanish border is under an hour away with the world-renowned foodie hotspot of St Sebastien. Our house was built in 1780 as a stopover stay run by nuns on the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela. We have renovated over the years to make a home with new modern bathrooms, a heated pool, high quality mattresses and fabulous linens but retaining the character of the original house which was so important.

Where is it?


St Jean de Marsacq is a typical small village in SW France. It’s quiet but has a bakery for morning croissants, baguettes and pain au chocolat, a good restaurant and a farmers market twice a month.

Retail therapy
The nearest resort of Hossegor is a well known surfing location with a huge outlet park that the teenagers love. Biarritz and Bayonne not only have fantastic restaurants and fabulous beaches but also offer great upscale shopping opportunities.
Bit of culture
Take time out to explore Bordeaux with its cathedrals, museums and the neighbouring wine region or travel south to St Sébastien, Spain to experience its many Michelin starred restaurants, annual Film festival and stunning scenery.
Spot of exercise
Trek the mountains of the Pyrenees, cycle the pine forests of the Landes, or surf the Cote d’Argent, all are just a short drive away.
