The Owner Says
Features & Facilities
Swimming pools (2 for kids and one for adults), children's play area, onsite bar restaurant, kid's club, small farm, plus plenty of games including petanque, table tennis and basketball.
Explore the surrounding hills and forests or take to two wheels – Glisten can organise bike hire for the whole family, as well as surf hire and lessons. For something less labour intensive, take the vintage Train de la Rhune (0033 559 542 026) to the first summit of the Pyrenees – the views from over 900 metres high are spectacular. There's plenty of beaches to choose from too, with St Jean de Luz, Socoa and Hendaye among the nicest and nearest. The Basque region straddles some of the most spectacular sites in both south-west France and northern Spain. Take in the glamour of Biarritz or chic San Sebastián (Donostia to the Basque).
Food & Drink
With a wealth of delicious local produce and treats to be sampled (including Bayonne ham and Basque cake), most dome-dwellers opt to cook their own on the plancha grill provided. 'La Kantina' – the onsite bar & restaurant – serves up decent, good value meals and regional specialties such as axoa. Eat al fresco on the terrace or enjoy some private fuss-free dining with the takeaway service. Basic provisions can also be purchased from the onsite shop, open 7 days a week. For something extra special, make the short pilgrimage to San Sebastián, the city with the most Michelin stars per square foot in the world. If your budget won't stretch to the haute cuisine heights of Arzak (0034 943 278 465), saddle up at a harbourside tavern for some traditional pintxos and some good Rioja.
From the north, take the RN10 and the A63. Take exit 2 – "St Jean de Luz south - Urrugne - Col Ibardin." At the roundabout, leave by the exit for Urrugne. Turn left and continue along the D4 to Ibardin D4 for 4km. At the intersection, continue straight towards Ascain. The site is located 200 meters down the road on the right.
