Arthez-de-Béarn (Occitan: Artés) is a commune in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in southwestern France.

It took its name from the county of Artois (Artés in Occitan, adapted in French as Arthès or Arthez) like three other communes of France (Arthez-d'Asson, Arthez-d'Armagnac, and Arthès).

In 1950, -de-Béarn was added to its name to differentiate it from the other Arthès.
