  The southwest of France has a magnetic attraction for travelers from its marvelous villages, its Atlantic Ocean beaches, equestrian pursuits, world-famous vineyards, excellent weather and its proximity to the Pyrénées ~ add to that a stunning and elegant château for your vacation, and the perfect French holiday has been created. Château Robert can be rented by the week as well as for shorter stays. 

Situated on 35 acres, Château Robert, recently renovated by its new owners and with a new pool, kitchen and gardens, is a full-service accommodation offering privacy, tranquility and exclusivity to its guests.  The estate boasts marvelous trees, hedges and gardens, grand lawns with a Linden tree border, an organic orchard of fruit trees with a hazelnut walkway, an organic herb and vegetable garden, and a restored 5-acre garden that recaptures its 1790 design.  The location of Château Robert is ideal for visits to the Atlantic coast and the cities of Biarritz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, and Bayonne and for exploring the delightful Basque and Béarn country as well as visits to the wonderful towns of  St-Jean-Pied-de-Port, Salies-de-Béarn and Oloron-Ste-Marie. 

If you are seeking that perfect wedding destination, look no further than Château Robert.  Able to host the perfect small wedding or a larger gathering from 120 to 150 guests, the château owners can recommend caterers, wedding organizers, photographers and all the other essentials to create a beautiful and memorable event.  Those interested in a special location to celebrate a birthday or anniversary will also find the amenities and offerings at Château Robert ideal, and guests can conveniently arrive from either Bordeaux or Pau airport. 

Golfers will be pleased with the many well-designed and popular courses in the region, and those who favor equestrian pastimes will find many places near the château where they can ride.  On the château grounds guests can play tennis, fish for trout in the pond and take advantage of the heated saltwater swimming pool among other activities.  Yoga classes are offered as well as a wide range of tours and experiences for guests.

Those who want to rent the entire château during high season will find everything they need for an exceptional holiday.  Breakfast is provided each morning, and a chef is available to prepare meals from a set menu or to shop for a special dinner requested by the guests.  Perhaps your group wants a French cooking holiday; if that is the case, week-long cooking courses are taught at the château in the newly renovated and very spacious kitchen.  For those interested in organized wine tastings, there are several packages offered for those who rent the château.  The owners live on site in the Orangerie, but remain discreet and are available when needed.

Bed and breakfast guests will thoroughly enjoy the luxurious en suite rooms and suites in the château that are available to them from mid-September to mid-June.
