Maison Louis XIV, Saint-Jean-de-Luz
(3.6/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to Maison Louis XIV and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Saint-Jean-de-Luz itinerary maker.

  • Nice visit with a dynamic super guide... duration of the tour about 40 minutes beautiful story loaded home!

  • Located in the main square, Louis XIV's house is an interesting building to see. On Sundays, you can enjoy the music of a local Basque orchestra in this plaza. 
  • We learn a few historical details but we expect better. The historical side is left aside in favour of an architectural side of average interest.

  • No information given. We came on Monday, October 3 to visit the House at 5 pm. We were waiting at 5 pm, we made out unceremoniously by a very rude woman who claimed receive a "big group" that no information had been noted. I find outrageous behavior, especially when people come from far away to visit that place. A poster don't eat bread.

  • Don't go with the children. It is frankly long and not very interesting. Some stories funny but nothing more.

  • A very beautiful House that deserves to be visited! The guide was very interesting when visiting! The parts in which lived the Sun King are very beautiful and authentic (furniture and decoration of time in superb condition, amazing)!
