A family guesthouse in Saint Jean Pied de Port, in the heart of the Basque Country


With us, you are at home. A whole family welcomes you nearby Saint Jean Pied de Port, capital of the inner Basque Country.


Josiane, Jean-Michel, Jean and Mathieu are pleased to serve you good local and organic food, welcome you or lead you to the mountains or fishing! 



« La Maison Iputxainia » guesthouse opened its doors in 2018, a second life for this old hotel, an institution in the valley.


We offer fully renovated, spacious, personalised rooms, equipped with television, wifi, private bathrooms, desk, and king size bedding.


We wanted « la Maison Iputxainia » to reflect the image of the Basque Country : a place where you feel good, a comfortable place, where you feel like staying, enjoying the sweetness of time passing ...


Then you will find  : a heated swimming pool with its outdoor spaces, large terraces suitable for resting, a jacuzzi, a reading room, a TV corner ...



The gastronomy of the Basque Country is no longer to be presented : the noble products, from our land, make the Basque cuisine famous throughout France (and maybe even the rest of the world).

Modestly, but with love and conviction, we offer you a food journey through the four corners of the Basque Country, but also through the South-West. For in the Basque Country, we have Espelette chilli peppers, Bayonne Ham, Irouléguy wine, Basque cake, veal Axoa... but our neighbours in the Landes remain the masters of foie gras, asparagus... and our neighbours in Béarn and Hautes-Pyrénées produce so so good wines in Jurançon, Madiran, Pacherenc...


Come and feast at our table!

OUR ACTIVE HOLIDAYS in the Basque Country

Before opening our guesthouse in the Basque Country, we decided 5 years ago to live from our passions that are outdoor activities : hiking, cycling, fishing ... Thus was born RESPYRENEES, a family business specialized into designing, organising and leading active holidays in the Basque Country, and even in the French and Spanish Pyrenees.

Thanks to this experience, we made our accommodation a perfectly adapted place for the organisation of this type of holidays, thanks to its facilities (jacuzzi, swimming pool, relaxation lounge, equipment/backpacks/shoes storage room,...), but also thanks to the permanent presence of qualified professionals in these activitie s: Mathieu and Jean for hiking and mountain activities, Jean for fishing...



From April to October (and the rest of the year on request), we offer holidays and activities organised from our accommodation, supervised by us, on our territory. You will be able to discover them on our page Activities/walking tours.
