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.

  • Saint-Jean-de-Luz is known as the place where the Sun King Louis XIV had a wedding ceremony with Princess Marie Therese Spain.  Louis XIV Square is a building on its end.  The portrait of Louis XIV was depicted on the wall.  It was a splendid historical building with the Basque red. There were many people who relaxed in the café and it was a peaceful atmosphere.

  • The tour begins with the rise of this majestic staircase... then the communicative passion of the guide takes you through a multitude of details and anecdotes. We were very surprised by the presence of the new generations who still occupy the premises occasionally and to learn that this House is still inhabited by its owner. Only the second floor is open to the public. The visit plunged us into a page in the history of France. Very interesting.
