La Pelote Basque is located in a residential area, only five minutes from the airport, in the suburbs of Biarritz. There are a number of restaurants within walking distance and a bakery and supermarket a short drive (or just under a half hour walk). There is a lovely lake you can walk to in a couple of minutes. It’s around 2km from the heart of Biarritz and approximately a half hour walk to the beach and sea and 10-minute walk to local restaurant and shops.

Beautiful Biarritz is on the Bay of Biscay in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques region, south-west of France, near the border with Spain. The resort dates back to the mid-19th century when aristocracy built their summer residences along this part of the coast, including the well-known Hotel du Palais, built by the wife of Napoleon III on the famous La Grande Plage.

In recent years, Biarritz and its 6km of coastline has become a mecca with surfers from all over the world and there are plenty of surfing schools for abilities and all ages. The nearest beach, Plage de Marbella (accessed via about 60 steps) is loved by surfers and body-boarders a is the well-known 1km-long surfing beach of Cote des Basques just to the north. Oliver’s Travel’s guests can arrange surf coaching or just equipment hire during their stay.

You will find some wonderful restaurants in the Port des Pecheurs, the former fishing port, where you can try seafood. Also, visit the wonderful market at the Halles de Biarritz including many Basque specialities.

Another one of the town’s highlights is the incredible Rocher of the Vierge peninsular, which can be visited via the Eiffel bridge that connects it to the mainland or the fascinating lighthouse in the northern part of the town where there are some incredible views.

For a change of scene, head to Bayonne (10km) where you can walk around the narrow streets admiring the beautiful and historic architecture or walk along the river front. Or head to the beaches to the north of the lighthouse, in the Anglet region, with wide, sandy stretches, some surrounded by grassland and forests, others backed by cliffs and some with beautiful promenades for walkers and cyclists.

South of Biarritz you will find the family-friendly Milady beach with its promenade and La Cité de l'Océan attraction, Plage d’ Ilbarritz with famous beach restaurants and an amazing golf course and a little further south is the authentic Basque village of Bidart where there are some amazing walks following coastal paths and remotely accessed beaches.

There are also some idyllic Basque villages inland to explore such as two of France’s Plus Beaux Villages; pretty Ainhoa (30km) and Sare (27km), where you can take the old wooden train up to the summit of La Rhune, one of the most dominant peaks of the Pyrénées, where there are some restaurants with incredible views as well as hiking opportunities.

Indeed, this whole region offers an extended range of outdoor activities, such as walking, horse-back riding, fishing, cycling, canoeing and many others including water-sports along the coast.

There are some great activities that can be arranged for Oliver’s Travel’s younger guests such as kids golfing lessons, bike rental for all ages and surfing lessons for the family. Skateboard hire and Segway tours can also be arranged for families with older children.

The 6km of coastline around Biarritz includes some wonderful beaches for families, not just La Grande Plage in the heart of the centre but also smaller beaches such as Plage Milady (with a playground and nearby La Cité de l'Océan sea-themed attraction) and Cotes des Basques, which has become a favourite for surfers.

Indeed, Biarritz has become a surfing mecca with surfers from all over the world being attracted to the 6km of Biarritz coastline and beyond and there are plenty of surfing schools for beginners of all ages including children.

From downtown Biarritz you can take the little Biarritz road-train along the coast for a more leisurely way to see the coast with a trip lasting 30 minutes. The more energetic can head to the Lighthouse at the northern end of Biarritz and climb the 200 or so steps to be rewarded with magnificent views.

If you want to explore further afield, head south to St-Jean-de-Luz where you’ll find plenty of family-friendly activities such as trampoline parks, mini golf and another road-train to beautiful sandy beaches featuring playgrounds and games.

Real train lovers should head inland to Sare to catch the old wooden train up to the summit of La Rhune mountain where you are greeted with spectacular views of the Pyrénées and coast on a clear day.
