    • 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.

      After the death of the author 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 45 minutes. For more information, visit the website www.arnaga.com

    Absolutely gorgeous place. While visiting family in Cambo-les-Bains,I visited this well preserved and organized Villa. English ,Spanish ,French self guide are available in each visiting point which is very helpful. Allow yourself to have at least more than 2 hours to complete the visiting the villa and take a stroll in the garden.

    Very beautiful museum with a splendid garden. A must visit, even if you did not read anything from Edmond Rostand.

    Lovely home and lovely gardens. Beautiful to wall around on a spring day. Plan to spend less than 2 hours total here though. No cafe or restaurant

    The gorgeous, highly individual rooms make perfect backdrops to the creative talents of the Rostand family in early 20th Century. The formal gardens echo the perspective. Unfortunately no...
