Going to the Basque country with a stop in Monein, any recs for Monein/Jurancon/Pau?

Hello dear Chowhound France friends,
We leave next Sunday for 2 weeks in and around the Basque country. Flying into Bilbao with a stop for a night in San Sebastian, then on to 4 nights in Monein, staying in the aptly named "Entre Vignobles et Vergers", because we LOVE Jurancon wine, then off to a week in a seaside apartment in Ciboure.
I've scoured the posts for the Basque country and am pretty set for San Sebastian/Ciboure/St Jean de Luz (Joy of joys were will be there for the Fetes de la Saint Jean, don't you hate when that happens?).
I'm not so set for Monein/Jurancon/Pau...does anyone have any recommendations for that area? I'm sure that our hosts can suggest some places but I thought I'd check in here first. Any specialties that we shouldn't miss?
I will be sure to come back with a review of our adventures. Thanks!
You're right! I hadn't been for a couple of years & didn't check.
Interestingly their website is still up & running as are reviews including Trip Advisor. See what you get when you Google it.
The newspaper articles do come up, but not at the top. Its a salutary lesson for me to check more closely when I'm recommending somewhere that I haven't visited for a while.
Unfortunately, I don't know anywhere else to recommend. We did have good meal at a hotel towards the mountains from Pau, but I can't remember the name. Sorry.
