Fodor's Review

Alain Ducasse may no longer be here, having been driven out by Basque nationalists, but his taste and touch are palpable in the style, the ultra-contemporary equipment and accoutrements, and, especially, in the regional Basque cuisine with international accents at this 100-acre park around a 17th-century farmhouse. Although some of the complex is modern and cold, various rooms and suites remain lovely settings for Basque woodwork, regional textiles, and sleek sculptures.

The landscape is superlatively Basque and the nearby Iparla Ridge hike, one of the greatest in the Pyrénées, will keep appetites primed for fine dining.
