Just 15 minutes from Saint Jean de Luz and its great protected bay, Saint Pée sur Nivelle is a typical basque village of 5 000 inhabitants. On the outskirts of the village this development of 53 houses offers the looks of a hamlet of typical basque town houses. The view from the development is purely outstanding since the site faces the Pyrenees and a gentle landscape of hills. It is south oriented and has been designed so as to ensure view and sun from all terraces and gardens. The development has already been been delivered and there are but a few houses left. It has been sold mainly to locals, just like most of the new built properties in the Pyrenees Atlantiques. The houses are ready to move-into still benefiting from all the advantage of any new build French property: reduced notary fee, no estate agent fee, 10 year structural guarantee, 2-year guarantee covering fixtures and fittings, reduced land taxes…
Just 15 minutes from Saint Jean de Luz and the Atlantic Ocean, Saint Pée sur Nivelle is a typical basque village of 5 000 inhabitants. Like every place in the Basque country it has a year-round life and not only in high season but of course in summer the population doubles. Also like many Basque villages it is built around its old church dating from the XVIth century when the village became a stop for pilgrims on the St James of Compostela trail. On top of its well preserved typical architecture the village offers all facilities including a supermarket, schools, a post office, and all types of trades…and not to forget restaurants. Nature is well preserved too: the Nivelle river runs along a rich cultivated valley, the Lake of Saint Pée sur Nivelle offers 29 acres of pure waters and plenty of water activities while a 3200 acres forest shelters 100 km of landmarked trails for cycling or walking. There are 2 golf courses in the vicinity: the famous Golf de Chantaco is only a 12 km drive (on a scenic road to top it) and the Golf de la Nivelle is located 16 km away from Saint Pée. Each Golf resort also offers tennis courts. Saint Pée sur Nivelle commands access to many other nice and typical villages in the close vicinity such as Ascain, Ainhoa, Sare (both villages classified among the “Plus beaux villages de France”), the famous Espelette, Itxassou. When looking on a road map you will notice that almost all the roads around Saint Pée are “des routes vertes” as we say in French that is to say scenic roads because they command views on the Pyrenees and their foothills.
Part of the Basque country, Pyrenees Atlantiques offer 3 different lifestyles in a small area along with authenticity and a true cultural specificity. It is a very sought after destination among the French themselves but has remained genuine. It is trendy and easy going at the same time, and the local culture is still very strong in this very welcoming and endearing country.
- The basque coastline is exceptional with family friendly beaches in Hendaye or Saint Jean de Luz, or sportive beaches of Bidart & Anglet which are renowned surfing paradise. You can enjoy the coastline more peacefully taking a stroll along the coastal path which connects Bidart to Hendaye and offers dramatic views on the Atlantic. The coastline shelters such villages as Bidart, Guéthary, Ciboure, picturesque without being purpose built tourist villages and true cities like the cosmopolitan trendy-showy off Biarritz or the smaller and deliberately old fashioned Saint Jean de Luz, shelter of distinguished old families.
- The Basque country also boasts an interesting countryside with as many as 11 legendary golf courses offering great views either of the Ocean or the Pyrenees, picturesque landscapes with stunning view on the Pyrenees and its soft foothills, charming little villages with out of season life, such as Sare one of the “Plus beaux villages de France”, Espelette renowned for its red pepper drying on the houses façades, Itsassou and its black cherries marmalade, Biriatou… and many others with always the cherished and well perpetuated traditional basque architecture. The soil here is fertile and well watered thanks to the proximity of the mountains thus offering a rich emerald green landscape of meadows and maize fields even in the hottest of summer.
- Being at one end of the Pyrenees range the department also boasts many outdoors activities. Just 60 km from Pau, administrative capital of Pyrenees Atlantiques, ski resorts of La Pierre Saint Martin, Gourette and Artouste offer miles of ski slopes, as well as snow-shoeing, rides in husky drawn sledge in winter and hiking, climbing, rafting, canoeing, kayaking or simply fishing in summer. For those who prefer a less sportive approach to mountains, you can enjoy a stunning view on both Ocean and Pyrenean range from the Rhune mountain which is accessible by a funny little train or visit Saint Jean Pied de Port, its Vauban build citadelle and stroll along its narrow paved streets.
