Location : Sea side

Province : Labourd

  • English
    • Between sea and mountains, Ciboure nestled in the heart of the bay of Saint-Jean-de-Luz, offers an illustrious heritage with the fort of Socoa, a Vauban-style military structure ; the convent of the Récollets where King Louis XIV would hear Mass ; the tower of Bordagain remains of an old fortified church ; Maurice Ravel's birthplace (1875-1937) ; the tomb of Pierre Benoît (1886-1962) author of the Atlantis and Mademoiselle de La Ferté and the Art Deco villa Leïhorra.

      It remains the absolute Art Deco manifesto desired by its creator. Everything of the villa, in its smallest details, has been imagined, designed by the architect Joseph Hiriart who invents volumes, proportions and forms, composes tiles, mosaics, parquet floors, cremones, chandeliers, wall lights, furniture. It is supported by the collaboration of Art Deco artists and local craftsmen, including the master glassmaker Jacques Gruber, the ceramist Cazaux, the assembler René Prou, the glassmaker Daum, the landscape designers Gelos and the ironmonger Jean Schwartz. It is one of the very few examples of private homes in the Art Deco style and period. The Villa Leïhorra is one of those total works of art that give the feeling of accomplishment.

      Mondays and Thursdays at 11am in front of the gate without an appointment. From Easter to the end of September.

    Exceptional mansion, genuine Art-Deco style in a superb landscape with a unique location over looking the ocean....arghhh I wish this house would be mine !!!!! The Lady of the House organises the visit of the public rooms (adorable patio, dining room and living-room). the visit of the garden is a to admire the facades of Leihora and as well as the Art-Déco Fronton (where basks play chistera), the water basins and enjoy the stunning views overlooking the Bay of Saint Jean de Luz. A real MUST-SEE

    For 8 euros you can visit the garden and the patio under the close supervision of the owner, no photos in the only room you visit, the patio. Why ? Probably to sell postcards. And impossible to visit the magnificent bathroom and upstairs (except for heritage days). We have the feeling that the owner no longer has the pleasure of sharing this beautiful place, remains that of collecting the money.

    8 euros per person, without ticket, to look at two rooms in the house, the patio and the garden is a lot of abuse, ban on taking photos in the house. We were unable to visit the bathroom which is the exceptional piece of this place. Sale of leaflet on the house 5 euros, of a postcard 1 euro. It was after we settled that we learned that the bathroom can be visited on Heritage Days only.
