    • Edmond Rostand, the author of Cyrano de Bergerac, planted the house of his dreams in lush greenery.

      Before being a museum, Arnaga was a dream, that of a great author of the last century, Edmond Rostand. This residence, he ardently desired, imagined and designed it down to the smallest detail. The Neo-Basque style house appears traditional on the outside. The interior is treated like a sumptuous theater set.

      Built in just 3 years (1903-1906), the villa has all the modern comforts of the Belle-Epoque: hot water, electricity, heating, telephone...

      The playwright lives there with his family, the poet Rosemonde Gérard and her children Maurice and Jean Rostand.

      On his death in 1918, the villa was sold in 1922. It has been owned by the municipality of Cambo-les-Bains since 1962.


      Many activities will bring different insights - theatre, readings, concerts, book fair... - to honor the author of Cyrano de Bergerac!

      Possibility of guided tour of the villa for a period of 40 minutes. For more information, visit the website www.arnaga.com

    Apart from the play Cyrano de Bergerac, I didn't know much about Edmond Rostand. This place shows how a small sheep-covered plateau can be transformed into a home of palatial comfort.

    Beautiful house and gardens. Edmond Rostand's literary output is internationally acclaimed and illustrations add meaningful interest.

    Fantastic place. You walk on Rostant's path. Too bad they don't take bookings specially in the high season. Expect a long queue and sometimes no place at all

    Edmond Rostand, forever famous for Cyrano de Bergerac, built this amazing place in the early 20th century. Both the house and the gardens are gorgeous.
