Zazpi Hotel: design hotel in Basque Country, France

If you are looking for a very cool place to stay in the heart of Saint Jean de Luz in the French Basque country, check out the Zazpi Hotel, an ultra-modern oasis of style. It’s tall elegant façade with intricate details, grey stone from Bilbao and funky touches, are a world away from the traditional hotels in the area. Harper’s Bazaar even called it the “most elegant seaside resort” in its July 2009 article, The World’s Hippest Hangouts.

Just walking distance from shops (it is a shopper’s paradise, after all) and the beach, you realize that the location is an exceptional setting for international designers. Indeed Harper’s Bazaar added that the Zazpi Hotel is a “haven for design junkies behind a classical townhouse façade.”

Just like the people who stay here, the rooms are stylish and creative, with each room or suite having a symbolically reminiscent environment of a province of the Basque Country. The floors are fitted with beachwood to resemble the wonderful Iraty forest. Common amenities include flat screen TVs, air conditioning, and Internet access.  The hotel also has a showroom which allows you to take a piece of Zazpi flair home with you.  Designer furniture by the leading names in contemporary design are put on sale for interested customers or can simply be enjoyed for leisurely viewing.

For a relaxing experience, the hotel has a swimming pool and solarium which is located on their stunning rooftop terrace that has breathtaking views over Saint-Jean-de-Luz.  If you are interested in exploring your creative and artistic side, you can plan a stay here and book rooms online which start from 160 €.
