From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Arnaud and Véronique Daguin, who previously ran Biarritz's one-Michelin-star Les Platanes restaurant, converted a 1746 stone farmhouse in the Basque region into a highbrow inn housing five striking modern rooms with oak floors, baths with Boffi fixtures, hand-forged iron windows, and Caudalie amenities. The whole property has Wi-Fi access, and every room comes with a Bang & Olufsen CD player/radio but no TV (the Daguins don't like it), no phone (you can use theirs), and no AC (the up-country breezes are refreshing enough). The large lounge area has a fireplace and there are horses to ride, but Hegia's heart is its kitchen, where Arnaud produces a different menu daily. Keep your fingers crossed that he'll do his baby squid stuffed with country ham or braised dove with cèpes. —2006 Hot List

When to go: Summer and fall.

Which room to book: Ask for the lavoir, with the big built-in bathtub for two (doubles, $584).
