Maison Louis XIV, Saint-Jean-de-Luz

See where the Sun King awaited his bride at Maison Louis XIV. While it wasn't actually the king's house, it was where Louis XIV stayed in 1660 while waiting for the Infanta Maria Theresa to arrive from Spain. Still owned by the same family who built it, the house is open to the public and features an extensive collection of art and artifacts from the 17th century. Note that tour guides may speak limited English, but an English text supplements the visit. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Saint-Jean-de-Luz holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Maison Louis XIV and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • We arrived at 10:30 to 11: 00 visit. There was no one home to find out and take the tickets. Mentioning just a panel at the bottom of the stairs: visit at 11: 00. We waited until 11:15 and the speaker guide has turned away us because there were too many people! So no visit... Home underneath it all
