During a few months a year, when we are not running our House-party Walking Holidays or Spanish immersion courses our beloved Basque cottage in the Pyrenees is sometimes available on a rental or B & B basis. This is not our main business and so this 5 bedroom Basque cottage is only available at times.
The cottage is ideal for walkers and nature enthusiasts, its location an inspiration for writers and artists or people looking for a spiritual retreat. The cottage has a large, glass conservatory which incorporates a light and spacious open-plan dining room/living room with wood-burning stove. Most of the living spaces in the house are in the glass-conservatory which has spectacular views over the valley. There is a fully-equipped kitchen and 5 en-suite double bedrooms (the original bedroom being in what was once the old hay loft) and 4 further en-suite double/twin rooms with terrace that can be rented together with the cottage and are linked by an interior door. There is a library with hundreds of books and a log fire. At the heart of the house, separating one wing of the house from the other, is an enormous central patio with flowers and sofas offering incredible views of the Pyrenees but there are many other south-facing terraces and gardens to escape to as well. This now 'grown-up’ cottage was my first home when it was once just a barn conversion and we love it dearly. It now lies in its own separate wing of the house. Iaulin Borda also has central heating and WIFI.
The cottage can be rented with just the one double en-suite room (and full private use of all the above facilities etc.) for 700 euros a week. Each additional en-suite room will then be charged at an extra 150 euros a week. For guests interested in B & B which is also available at certain times of the year, we charge 80 euros per night B & B in a double en-suite room. Contact us.
