The best of Biarritz
Using a villa as your base will give you maximum freedom to enjoy everything there is to see and do in Biarritz. The surf here is world class, and if you don’t want to brave the waves then it’s almost as thrilling to be a spectator on the beach or in a seafront cafe. Eating well is part of life here, and our villas come equipped with plenty of outdoor dining space, so you might like to spend an hour browsing the fabulous food stalls in Biarritz’s covered market to stock up for an easy dinner by the pool or a picnic for the beach. If you feel like a little luxury, this area is famed for thalassotherapy sea water treatments, harnessing the power of nature to make you look and feel your best on holiday. For younger guests there’s the Biarritz Aquarium and plenty of places to learn to surf, not to mention the simple joy of a heated swimming pool.
A holiday in the Basque Country
Travel just a few kilometres from the coast and discover a world that hasn’t changed much in a hundred years, though many of the traditional timbered houses have been quietly converted into luxury holiday homes with beautiful private gardens. The character of the Basque region still shines through in pretty villages like Ascain, Ainhoa, Sare and Espelette, while Spain is within easy reach for a day visit to San Sebastian, Pamplona or Bilbao and its splendid Guggenheim museum.
