« Sleep in an old inn on the Route of Santiago de Compostela in one of the most beautiful Basque villages »

Description of the establishment

Just a short distance from Saint-Jean-de-Luz and the beaches, at the heart of the village of Sare, this former hospice on the road to Santiago de Compostella is composed of three traditional Basque 16th century houses. Wooden staircases lead to the beamed bedrooms with their elegant décor and beautiful 18th and 19th century furniture. Some give onto the delightful garden, while the most spacious look out over the village square. The same lovely view can be admired from the restaurant terrace, where “Xangurro ravioli with crab fumet”, “Pastiza with black cherry jam” and other delicious dishes do honour to the regional flavours.

The hotel and food was excellent. We were greeted enthusiastically, but found the attitude of the hotel owner/manager difficult to understand. Condescending to the point of rudeness, probably happier without guests.

Le charme basque et la passion de l'hôtellerie

A l'Hôtel ARRAYA à SARE vous recevrez le meilleur accueil qu'il soit possible. Mr et Mme Jean-Baptiste et Laurence FAGOAGA, les propriétaires de ce merveilleux hôtel familial lui ont donné au cours de années un lustre exceptionnel. D'abord , on n'oublie jamais que l'on est au Pays Basque tant l'amour pour leur région est profond et sincère et qu'il fait vivre l'âme de leur établissement : que ce soient le restaurant, les salons, la boutique, les énormes solives des plafonds, les cheminées , les escaliers centenaires en châtaignier à la patine foncée, les chambres si confortables à la literie basque unique en France, le jardin rénové grâce à une volonté extraordinaire, .. Mais par dessus tout, sachez que si vous allez dans ce merveilleux endroit , vous y reviendrez. C'est inévitable. Mr et Mme FAGOAGA ont ancré en eux, la passion de leur métier qui leur donne cet accueil spontané et chaleureux, cette gentillesse naturelle et cette attention si bienveillante pour vous que vous ne pouvez pas les oublier: vous êtes reçus et choyés comme des membres de la famille. Cela fait plus de dix ans que résidons presque chaque année à l'hôtel Arraya et c'est toujours avec le même plaisir renouvelé. Georges LARCIN

Charming hotel in the Basque Country
5
This is a lovely hotel in a beautiful village in the Basque Country. The owners are friendly, charming and extremely welcoming, and the hotel itself is an elegant and sophisticated mix of traditional and modern. The building itself is old, and the common rooms have pieces of beautiful traditional furniture, but the rooms are newly refurbished, extremely comfortable, with very modern, smart bathrooms. There is a lovely shady terrace where you can enjoy breakfast, a cup of tea with gateau basque or an aperitif. The dinners were very enjoyable, and the breakfasts include local yoghurt which is delicious.

Lovely but a bit noisy
3.6
The Arraya and its owners were just lovely. The hotel is very charming in a very small village in the French Basque country. The hotel was kind enough to find us a room sort of at the last minute. The only thing I did not enjoy too much were the beds and pillows (too hard) and we had a rough night as the hotel has no AC so we had our windows open, only to be awoken by a very drunk and agitated young lady and her friends returning from a party, as well as the church bells which are across the street (and chime every hour through the night). Of course this had nothing to do with the quality of the hotel, but it did affect our sleep, and this was the only reason we were glad to stay only one night. However, we would happily stay again at the Arraya if we were in Sare again.
