  • Passing through for a few days in Biarritz, I went to visit the villa Arnaga combo. Place of work and also relaxation of Edmond Rostand and his family, I discovered the wonderful gardens with ponds and flower borders. And that tell of the Interior, the tour led us from room to room, all furnished in the footsteps of the Rostand family. I have wonderful memories of this visit.

  • Very pretty really mini Versailles garden theme especially. I do the tour without guide and records for the history of the pieces are very well made. Nice discovery.

  • The home of Edmond Rostand, emptied of almost all of its content is proposed to visit. An entry-level price prohibitive to visit walls and pictures of what the House contained before it is sold. Disappointing.

  • Almost living museum, necessarily inhabited by the Rostand because the House is built "to measure", with some pinches of outrageousness that give the reason. He fat ask to see the under the House, cellars and basement.
