Rates from £64 per night · Budget Boutique · 5 rooms
Villa Arguibel is a boutique hotel with an interior design that is a candy coloured delight, where antique furnishings are given a retro look. Set along the Atlantic coast near to Biarritz, Guéthary is a port with buildings that would look more at home in the Swiss alps. Perfect for weekend escapesA smooth fusion of 4-star hotel and luxury guesthouse, the villa stands on France’s west coast, just 1km from the beaches of Guéthary. Framed by sparkling seas and rich green countryside, the hotel offers sweeping sea and mountain views.
The stylish design hotel was designed by local architect Pierre Couteau. Beyond the pristine white and red facade, the five rooms and suites are havens of style named after renowned figures connected to the area, such as writer Pierre Loti and poet Paul-Jean Toulet. Old and new furnishings sit side by side in the comfortable interiors, accessorised with contemporary paintings and sculptures.
The beach is only one mile away and you are surrounded by pretty sheep pastures so there's plenty do you.
