Etcheberry Borda is a historic stone cottage with the typical character of traditional Basque farms. It is situated in the lovely hilly landscape near the Pyrenees close to Biarritz and the Atlantic Ocean and embedded between fields and pastures. Its surrounding is very quiet and peaceful: a wonderful place for couples, families or friends who seek tranquillity and peaceful recreation.
