In 1900, Edmond Rostand, writer of the play Cyrano de Bergerac, came to Cambo-les-Bains because of his pulmonary disease. He was taken by the area and in time bought some land and had a house built. It was completed in 1906. His house, the Villa Arnaga, is now a heritage site and a museum devoted to Rostand's life and Basque architecture and crafts.

The Spanish composer Isaac Albéniz died in Cambo-les-Bains in 1909. Another significant Spanish composer, Sebastián Durón, died there in 1716.
