a time out of time
Can such breathtaking beauty be taken in at once?
It stretches out freely at our feet – a gift, given totally and unabashed.
Follow the pristine mountain stream, while climbing to the crest, take an ever narrowing path to be sure that you have finally arrived:
Before your very eyes: a sea of hills, an earthly swell tectonically fixed for centuries and to last for centuries yet to come.
A vast green wave, rolling in sweetness and stroked by the warming sun, coloured only rarely by a few red-tiled roofs and a countless number of white dots which are Basque sheep.
In the distance, an even higher mountain ridge tinted in mauve, the emerald green bursting forth in sheer silence.
The forests here are gorgeous, with firs, chestnuts, beech, and oak trees, the symbol of the Basque Country that can be found on both sides of the Pyrenees. Many oak trees have their sturdy roots in Ostapé, a name that literally means " in the shadow of the oak tree".
Porcini mushrooms grow profusely at the foot of the oak trees fed by the rain and the sun. Local roads make it easy to cut down ferns, gorse and brooms. There are trails that weave their way through the rocky hillside.
Upon arrival, guests leave their car at the stables, and are given a golf cart to circulate on the property.
the heated swimming pool,
the massage room,
are at your disposal and guarantee to a moment of relaxation and serenity.
