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 could not visit it inside because we came late, on the ground floor there is a shop/exhibition of ceramics, and a restaurant that the crosses and has tables on a pleasant terrace.
