Cambo-les-Bains had the advantage of being discovered, not by financiers and promoters, but by the writer-poet Edmond Rostand. In the heart of this privileged corner of the Basque Country, he has always felt at home: he has settled there, written and built without disfiguring, quite the contrary. The famous author of Cyrano de Bergerac gave Cambo an image as poetic as his verses. Its superb Villa Arnaga, built by the famous Parisian architect Joseph-Albert Tournaire, was built in 1903. Thanks to his enlightened personality, Edmond Rostand was able to give a particular elegance to this imposing Basque style residence. Nestled in the heart of 15 hectares of French and English gardens, the result is a refined masterpiece: the walls and furniture were commissioned from renowned artists. Transformed into a museum since 1960, the Villa opens the doors of the intimate where documents and paintings evoking the life of the writer are displayed. We discover the amazing universe in which Edmond Rostand found inspiration. Note that it was in Cambo that Edmond Rostand wrote Chantecler in 1910! To complete the visit of the villa, room sheets in 4 languages are available.
