Arbolateia, "the place of the trees"
Sandrine and Jean-Pierre welcome you to Arbolateia, "the place of the trees", a beautiful neo-Basque mansion, both authentic and modern, rising in a lush garden, defined and designed by Jean- Pierre, landscaper.
It is in 2002 that they have a true crush on this house and, since then, they renovate it, improve it, rethink it, model it, according to their passion, their desires, their needs. The space and all the possibilities of development offered by this building were a great source of inspiration to create, freely, a place that resembles them, to their taste. And they knew how to surround themselves with local architects, followers of modernity but respectful of the Basque heritage.
For the decoration, each space is unique with different atmospheres, mix of styles, associating the old, the vintage and the contemporary. Sandrine, accomplished bargain hunter, is always looking for objects and furniture, original and offbeat, from the 50s to the 70s. Place is made also to regional artists, whose creations expose themselves in the bedrooms, the living rooms, the entrance, or the garden.

Surfing with nature
To create the garden, Jean-Pierre's bias and challenge were to create a microclimate, close to the beach and spray, with shrubs and groves, to felting the atmosphere and make the place more intimate. He has therefore defined micro zones, precise spaces that preserve the privacy of each. Thus, each apartment has its private terrace, where everyone can really isolate himself, if he wishes, in the tranquillity of lush greenery.
In this garden, there are flowers almost all year long. About the species, he chooses very adapted and emblematic plants of the Basque Coast, like maples of Japan and hydrangeas. They form colorful groves between which we move harmoniously. The earth being acidic, it perfectly accommodates camellias, azaleas, and rhododendrons; some palms and ferns from New Zealand like it a lot too.
But he also lets nature express itself, without much intervention, and only with ecological processes. It's both wild and controlled... Surfing with nature, it's a question of balance.
And about surfing, Jean-Pierre knows everything, because when he's not in the nature, he surfs the waves of the nearby ocean! And he will be very pleased to share this other passion with you...

Pleasure of welcoming and sharing
"We love to welcome, please and invest so that guests are happy at home. The breakfasts are homemade with local and seasonal products: fresh fruits juices and salads, pancakes, cakes, artisanal ham and cheese. We favour contact and conviviality and we like to share our special addresses of the Basque country. This is our philosophy; welcome to Abolateia!"
