BASQUE & FRENCH CUISINE - HOMEMADE BY OUR CHEF FRANCIS BERGOUNIOUX
Our restaurant perpetuates the know-how of “homemade” Basque and French cuisine.
We have kept the spirit of a family inn whilst offering a unique menu which is renewed at every mealtime by our chef. This formula enables us to provide fresh cuisine made on the day itself using high quality products: Saint Jean de Luz hake, Axoa (veal stew), local meat from Souraide …. Homemade desserts.
From mid-April to early November, you are free to choose either half-board or discover our cuisine from day to day.
New for 2021: Our lunchtime picnics
Reserve your picnic made from our picnic buffet
Children are obviously welcome with a special rate for children aged 5 to 12 and free for children under 4 years old.
And of course we know how to adapt to everyone’s tastes and needs (salt free, gluten free, without fish, without meat ….)
A PIONEER IN TOURISM, WE HAVE BEEN AN ECO-HOTEL SINCE 2000
OUR ECO-RESPONSIBLE APPROACH
The Hotel LES GOELANDS is an eco-responsible hotel which respects the environment.
A pioneer in tourism, we drew up our ecological charter back in the year 2000.
Our approach was rewarded in 2005 by the “GREEN KEY” label. We were one of the first 5 hotels in France to obtain this distinction and the first in the Basque Country.
Since then, we have been faithful to this label, constantly improving our actions in favour of the environment. We have been providing e-bikes to discover Saint Jean de Luz and the Basque Coast for several years now.
Since 2014 we have been a recognised GOLD ECOLEADER by Tripadvisor.
To choose the Hotel LES GOELANDS is also to act in favour of the Basque Country’s environment.
We support the Basque Coast’s Permanent Centre for Ecological Initiatives, as well as the bird rescue centre HEGALALDIA
It is a great pleasure for us for you to take part in this process. As an eco-tourist, don’t hesitate to recycle your documents, batteries, etc.
OUR ECOLOGICAL APPROACH
In baskets on each floor and at reception: we recover paper and newspapers (2017: 534 kg of paper).
At reception we recover batteries, bulbs, ink cartridges, glass.
Glass bottles recovered (wine and orange juice) (2017: 1.2 tons of glass).
-kitchen fat (fat tray)
-boxes and cardboard
-plastic bottles and tins
Use of toilet paper and recycled hand towels
We use recycled paper for commercial use and this brochure.

We use accumulators instead of batteries.
We prefer local and organic producers (organic coffee, tea and wine, yoghurt, cheese, milk and honey from Sare, Itxassou and Ascain)
We use and rent out e-bikes
When we make investments, we take the environment into account (study of “greener” products and solutions).
We limit the use of products in individual packaging (jam in ramekins, non packaged sugar, soap and shampoo in dispensers).

We use both sides of paper for rough copies and internal documents (40% paper saved).
We use low-energy lightbulbs.
