Cédric Béchade’s manifesto
An aficionado of locally-sourced, conscientious cuisine, Cédric Béchade draws inspiration from the culture of the Basque Country, expressing its traditions while centring on the product. He stays true to his basic convictions, by eschewing all industrial ingredients, forging close ties with local producers, and transmitting his philosophy to all of his teams.

The world of Marion Béchade
With a solid training and background in luxury hospitality, Marion has – together with her husband – breathed new life into the Auberge Basque since purchasing this traditional old farm in 2006 with the purpose of converting it into a contemporary inn.
Passionate yet modest, Marion has brought her personal values of authenticity and humanity to the Auberge Basque, thereby avoiding the pitfall of over-formality.
Committed to sustainable development, she has adopted an eco-friendly approach, with rain showers in the bedrooms, geothermal heating and air conditioning, recyclable waste sorting and so on. Her latest project was the refurbishment of all 12 of the Auberge’s guest rooms, guided by her intuition and ecological values and taking care to choose vibrant shades, eco-design furniture and predominantly locally-sourced French brands.
True to the nature of this family house with its atmosphere of assurance and well-being, Marion and Cédric attach great importance to team spirit, to the transfer of skills and values, and to personalizing the experience of each and every guest.

The Auberge spirit
The Auberge Basque is a resolutely collective and human endeavour. Marion and Cédric Béchade see it as a priority to employ dynamic individuals who share their values of care and excellence. Committed to service quality and attentive to personal needs, the staff at Auberge Basque take care to ensure the well-being of each guest, in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Personal fulfilment is of primary importance within this close-knit, complementary team. “Every one of us is the host and we are all dressed the same regardless of role or rank.”
Cédric and Marion have attracted a team of individuals who are passionate about what they do and whose goal is to grant you a unique experience that you will never forget.
