MAISON ERRECALDIA, a traditional French Basque house dating from 1673, offers three rooms, with double or twin beds. All are spacious and sunny, offering en-suite facilities, spectacular views, and large, comfortable beds. A generous continental breakfast of fresh and local ingredients is provided.
Guests have their own entrance and key giving access 24 hours a day. Free, fast WiFi internet is available throughout the house. Baggage transport and taxi services can be arranged.
Situated in the beautiful foothills of the Pyrenees, rising to 4000 feet, we are ideally placed for touring, walking and cycling. The GR10 trans-Pyrenean trail, as well as the Camino, the pilgrim route, passes right by our front door.
Just a few minute's walk down the medieval street of Rue de la Citadelle brings you to the bustling town centre of Saint Jean Pied de Port. With shops, bars and restaurants, this Pyrenean market town has plenty to offer.
Nestling below the 17th century Vauban Citadelle, with views over the river valley to the surrounding hills and mountains, the house lies on the ancient Chemin St Jacques in a quiet location just beyond the Porte St Jacques and the town walls.
For those travelling from afar to walk the long distance routes, our comfortable house offers an ideal opportunity to rest a day or two after travelling, before tackling the climb out to Roncesvalles, Saint Etienne de Baigorry or Iraty.
Where practical, we use organic food or local artisanal products which are essentially organic. Natural or hypo-allergenic cleaning products are used throughout the house to protect the environment and health.
We speak English or French, and can translate emails in other languages.
We highly recommend Tim & Louise' place. It's close to everything in town, yet has the comfort and quiet of a country home. We arrived the last evening of a festival and we're delighted by fireworks at our window. It was a perfect way to start.

This is a great place to stay in Saint Jean Pied de Port. The rooms are very nice, clean and private. A good starting point for exploring the town and the Pyrenees. We were hosted by Valerie, friend of the owners, who with her enthusiasm for the region made our stay very special. We hope to be back!

This B&B is even more beautiful and special - than any pictures convey. Tim was a gracious and helpful host. He made for us a delicious French breakfast with all local foods. It was just what I needed to help rejuvenate and motivate me on my way forward to the Camino de Santiago. I wish I could describe the views from my balcony. You'll have to see for yourself!!
