  • My wife made reservations for a tour, lunch and the baking class. We walked down the hill, farther than I expected, but not too far. We arrived early, but were warmly welcomed to the demonstration...  more »
  • Had a good time there, the food was great, I learnt how to make a goat basque, it was fun and the room is very pretty  more »
  • Chef was delightfully amusing and even though our French was quite limited, we managed to communicate. I only wish we'd had more time and could have stayed for the class in the afternoon. I'm itching to make this now that I'm home!
  • A very good day spent on the spot. A presentation of history and Basque cake to start with a tasting and all that in a very good mood. The lunch we ate on the spot and very well eaten, of the local speciality afterwards, we made the preparations of the Basque cakes of the pastry custard and we left with our works for our biggest Olesia a big thank you for the welcome that was outstanding
