Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and mountains, Biarritz offers a perfect natural setting with its rocky and beautiful coastline. Situated in the Bay of Biscay and only 8Km from Bayonne, it is a remarkable weekend getaway.
Once a bustling seaport, Biarritz is became fashionable resort in the mid-19th century when Napoléon III and his wife Eugénie made it a summer destination. It now remains an exclusive location, and also attracts surfers each year because of its formidable waves.
Nearby is the fishermen’s port and its brightly coloured crampotte (typical houses), ready to welcom visitors with simplicity and authenticity.
