Hi, has anyone any information on the gite de pelerins in Espelette? I know it was closed and maybe it was going to open in the spring. I have emailed the town hall but haven't had a reply yet.
Does anyone know of any other budget accommodation in or close to Espelette?
Thanks.

I'm interested to know the answer! When I stayed in Espelette the albergue was closed on that day 'for bedbugs'. That was about 18m ago. I believe we heard since it was closing for some time. It is somehow in the care of the tourist office in the town which is in a sort of chateau. They gave me other phone numbers to try before I got there but I got no answer. I stayed in the hotel - they do a pilgrim rate demi pension. It wasn't cheap but it was lovely! Very friendly. But if I were going again I would try for the gite and use the money saved for an upgrade from the pilgrim meal which came with the deal. Baztan was an exceptionally beautiful route. Buen Camino.

Thanks. I've emailed the Hotel Euzkadi to ask the pilgrim price for 1 person in case the gîte is still shut. Going 2nd week in June.

Hi @kayagee66, there was a post about this recently on the Voie du Baztan Facebook page. It seems that the gite is closed ‘for renovations’ until further notice. Apologies - I meant to put something on the forum, but I’m up to my eyes with a few other things at the moment.

If you’re on Facebook, I’d suggest checking out that page. There were a few other accommodation updates too. I’ll share them in the next few days.

Hope you enjoy the Baztan - it’s a gem!

@kayagee66 , I can only second Tim's recommendation for the Hotel Euzkadi. We walked in like 5 drowned rats, our raingear dripping on the immacualte floor - but were received with so much kindness.
There is also a gite in nearby Souride, if the hotel is over your budget.
(You've likely seen them but Nuala's detailed Baztan notes are excellent, by the way.)

Thanks. I had a reply from the town hall today, they advised i try Mr Le Sauce. I don't suppose you know if he speaks English? If not i'll just try my best to be understood. I should be able to muddle through if i write down some phrases before i call.

I emailed Hotel Euzkadi and they said the price is still the same as when you stayed, €50 bed, evening meal, breakfast. They have a bed available on the day i want so i've asked for a reservation.
When you go to their website there is nothing about a pilgrim rate (unless i just couldn't find it)

I didn't know about the discount until @timr mentioned it following his Camino. Damian and I stayed in the gîte in 2016. We (the '5 peregrina' group) planned to do the same last year, but when we arrived in Esplette soaked to the skin, we asked at reception and were delighted to avail of their warm hospitality. It was especially good to be able to dry out our shoes and waterproofs. A lovely memory.
