The Basque region of France is well known for its natural wonders and scenic beauty. At the epitome of such beauty lies the Ostapé Hotel. The property spreads out at the foot of the green hills of Navarre. Guests are welcomed with warmth and pleasing hospitality, typical of this region, in perfect harmony with the generosity of the Basque Country itself. Ostapé is located in the heart of the French Basque Country, close to the village of Bidarray, at 20km from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port and 35km from Bayonne. Omnipresent nature, absolute silence, comfort and refinement contribute to making Ostapé an exceptional and unique hotel. There are numerous accommodations to choose from with seven Junior Suites, eight Master Suites, two Prestige Suites and five Luxury Suites. Visitors will also discover five typical Basque villas, including a 17th-century manor house, dispatched on an estate of 45 hectares. All rooms overlook the mountain and the valley and all have a balcony or a terrace.

Ostapé is also a regional gourmet stopover for its guests: traditional Navarrian cuisine interpreted by Alain Ducasse. The hotel’s restaurant features cuisine that is simply irresistible and sumptuous. The restaurant and the bar are located in the manor house. There are two vegetable gardens on the estate that will provide delicious ingredients to the restaurant such as fresh vegetables, herbs, seasoning plants and fruit. One of the dining rooms, in the former kitchen of the manor house, can welcome guests at a "table d'hôtes" with a beautiful fireplace and traditional cooking equipment decoration. The hotel also offers guests cooking lessons for fitness and fun. Overlooking the swimming-pool is a Bar cum Lounge and a wine cellar for those who are connoisseurs of fine spirits.
