Bed and Breakfast in the Château

Ossau Valley - Pyrénées-Atlantiques


of the Château de Druon

The Château de Druon was built by Fernand DRUON in 1877. This politician, born in the North of France, was the uncle of a very famous french writer, Maurice DRUON, member of the Academie Francaise, Minister of  Culture under the presidency of Georges Pompidou and co-author of the "Chant des Partisans" with Joseph Kessel.

Edified during the "English Era" at the time when the Hydrotherapy in the Pyrénées was very trendy and healed Empress Eugénie and many other famous personalities and royals who gave this region its full notoriety.

Later on the Château belonged to different families and associations.

It was then derelict in the 80's, until 2006, when Elisabeth and Gilles RINGENBACH bought it and started a complete renovation until today.

It has always been a family house and this is why Elisabeth and Gilles wanted to give this charming little Château a new life as a special Guest House .

Who are we ?

After 30 years living in Alsace and working in the Finance for Gilles and  Aviation in Switzerland for Elisabeth, our couple has finally concretised its desire to renovate an ancient château to host guests and share moments of friendliness.

We took great care at renovating and decorating the château having always in mind the pleasure of welcoming our guests in a charming , comfortable and outstanding setting.
