We enjoyed 4 nights here with another couple from the US and loved the experience. We were in a 14th century room and they had an 18th century accommodation with magnificent furnishings, armoires, and antiques. Our views of the grounds were beautiful. The breakfasts are remarkable and having a tour of the chateau by a real count (the latest family... More

Chateau d'Uturbie is a 14th Century chateau built around a castle keep, modernised (a little) on the interior, and run by the charming de Coral family that has resided there since 1341. There is an extensive garden with tennis court and swimming pool, and an honour bar system containing some very acceptable wines and armagnacs. The trinquet in Urrugne village... More

My wife and I stayed for three nights. From the warm welcome of the latest family owner (Laurent), the detailed tour of the building, to the excellent recommendations for daytime visits and evening meals, we could not have asked for more. It is a privilege to be able to stay in such an historic building. I think it is amazing... More

One of France's Historic Monuments which is not only open to visitors but also to guests as well. If you like architecturally interesting and historically important buildings then you will love this one! Comfortable and chic, the perosnal attention by the owner adds a "Je ne sais quoi" to the experience. Thoroughly recommended.

We were enchanted as soon as we arrived. The very personal welcome and tour of this special place on arrival set the tone for a few special days. The very fact of staying in a turret of a real castle was magical for our boys (age 10, 12, 15) and the owner's passion and fascinating anecdotes (it was attacked by... More

There is a personal welcome from the charming English speaking Count whose family have lived in the castle for 23 generations (and he and his wife continue living here) and he shows guests around the magnificent property and explains some of the history. Our room was a superior one which was quaint and unique with traditional furnishings. Breakfast is served... More

Wonderful to stay in a historic chateau and enjoy updated bathrooms, comfortable beds and a pleasant atmosphere. The owner and host, Laurent, was charming and helpful, especially when we were late because of a cancelled flight. He booked our late dinner at the restaurant across the fields, and it was so nice to unwind there after our travel troubles. The... More

How often do you get to stay in a Chateau that's still owned and run by the family?! The Count is immensely helpful and charming - as are his staff. The Chateau is a short drive from Saint-Jean-de-Luz set in its own grounds. It's a gorgeous building with a lovely swimming pool area. The Chateau is quite near a busy... More

A wonderful old chateaux amidst its own grounds. Busy main road and motorway nearby but thickness of walls(3ft/1m) mean no sound is heard within the building. Laurent (in whose family the chateaux has been for many generations) made us very welcome and told the history of the house also, and did everything he could to make our stay most enjoyable....

Personally I believe this chateau is quite amazing but then again it's our first chateau stay in France. The architecture, history and design is just beautiful! Our room was full of grandeur with high ceilings and a large picture window overlooking the gardens. Our king size bed was heavenly with soft pillows and sheets. Just a few minutes from the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Near the beaches of Saint Jean de Luz on the Spanish border, this fortified castle has belonged to the same family since it was built in 1341. Louis XI once visited the château, now renowned for its fine 16th and 18th century architecture and splendid 17th century lounges. It was raised to the status of Viscounty by Louis XIV. In the carefully restored interiors, it is easy to imagine the past splendour of the place. ... more   less
