Here’s a fantastic apartment in a building which impresses the onlooker with its grand entrance and façade, complete with mouldings and wrought iron balconies. It’s only a couple of minutes’ walk to the most famous beach in Biarritz and near shops, bakery, restaurants, markets and all the glitzy glamour that the town has to offer.

With a lift to take you to the fifth floor, you are rewarded inside by views across the rooftops towards the dome of the charming Imperial Chapel, the famous lighthouse and yes, the ocean. It’s been sensitively renovated, retaining character with wooden floors, white shuttered juliet windows and some lovely features such as the gentle arch over the modern open kitchen in the living area.

The furnishings are simple and tasteful with some quirky surprises such as the colourfully designed chairs and sideboard. The bedrooms are situated along a pretty corridor, one with a double bed which converts into two singles and the other a large master suite with its own shower room.

Biarritz is a glitzy town not far from the Spanish border, renowned for its Art Deco buildings, fine food and six kilometres of beaches which offer fine surfing opportunities as well as family fun. Your nearby picture postcard beach, La Grande Plage, is simply a surfer’s paradise where enthusiasts ride the breaking waves and families enjoy the colourful beach tents.  

It has a fine promenade which stretches towards the Lighthouse, just the place for Atlantic views and sunset strolls. On the way, admire the ornate Hôtel du Palais, built for Empress Eugenie, or stop at one of the oyster bar terraces nearby which overlook the ocean. Treat yourself to some Basque specialities at the covered markets of Les Halles or sample some seafood at a restaurant in the Port des Pêcheurs, the former fishing port.

Take a break from the glamour and bustle, hire a car and head towards one of the beautiful inland Basque villages such as Ainhoa or Sare. The nearby peaceful town of Bayonne offers a relaxing walk beside the river and a relaxing lunch or there’s a round of golf on offer at the scenic course next to Chiberta beach.

La Rive is situated on the fifth floor of a magnificent building on a corner of two roads, just over 200m from the most famous beach in Biarritz, La Grande Plage.

It’s a surfer’s paradise at La Grande Plage and it’s also fun to just walk around watching enthusiasts riding the waves and families enjoying the colourfully striped beach tents and children’s beach clubs. There are plenty of surf shops and schools here catering for the experienced surfer as well as the beginner.

This picture postcard golden sanded beach has a fine promenade which stretches past Plage Miramar towards the Lighthouse, just the place for Atlantic views and sunset strolls. On the way, admire the ornate Hôtel du Palais, built for Empress Eugenie, Napoleon Bonaparte’s wife in the late 19th century. You might be tempted to stop at one of the oyster bar terraces nearby which overlook the ocean or explore some of the nearby shops and restaurants.

There are plenty of other beaches in Biarritz to enjoy for a change of scene. La Côte des Basques (2.5km) is also much loved by surfers and small children will appreciate the small sheltered beach at central Port Vieux. For wilder and more adventurous terrain head to the northern Anglet beaches where there are plenty of biking trails alongside the coast and in the forests. Look out for Chiberta beach (4.5km) which has a fabulously situated golf course with ocean views.

When you are ready to leave the beach, there is plenty to see in Biarritz and nearby. The covered food markets of Les Halles, within a 10-minute walk, are the place to sample and buy Basque delicacies while the casino is pure Art Deco by the sea, a dominant and magnificent landmark in the city standing tall as it looks out across the ocean.

If hiring a car, a trip to Ainhoa (25km), one of the most beautiful villages in France, is an essential part of any visit to the Basque country. Sare (24km) is another very picturesque village at the base of the Rhune mountain, where you can tour the 17th century Ortillopitz House for a taste of past Basque life.

Biarritz has 6kms of blue sea and golden sand, just fabulous for kids. There are beach clubs on La Grande Plage, where you can also rent one of those colourful stripy tents whilst smaller children might also appreciate the calmer waters of central Port Vieux for a paddle. 

There are plenty of surfing schools for beginners as well as the more experienced riders of the waves. The Anglet beaches and forests to the north of Biarritz have promenades and tracks for biking or just pleasant walks.

Take a 30-minute sight-seeing trip up the coast on the little Biarritz road train. The town also offers an Art Deco style Aquarium which houses a wide variety of sea life and there’s a café for lunch afterwards. To let off steam, the town’s Pierre Forsans Public Garden has a kid’s area to remind you of home.

You might enjoy a change of scene at the Animal Park at Labenne, a short drive away, or the Izadia Ecology Park in Anglet near Chiberta beach to the north of Biarritz
