Overview

Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Walk to Village

La Toile D’Artiste sleeps six and occupies the first and top floors of a town house in the heart of Biarritz, only a stroll away from two of its most famous beaches. Recently renovated by a famous Basque architect, it’s a quirky and contemporary apartment with a vintage touch - an unexpected delight tucked away behind a pleasantly sedate and shuttered exterior.

You will particularly love the eclectic mix of styles in the living-dining area, artistically combined to produce a delightful broad canvas. Relax on the seasoned leather couch to admire the designer armchairs, huge wall painting and glass panel feature beside the kitchen.

Intricately designed golden lighting warms the midnight blue of the first floor double bedroom, just along the hallway from the shower room. Two intriguing staircases lead to the upstairs double bedrooms and are a design feature in their own right. Venture up the first to find a light and airy master bedroom and shower room, where you can relax with a book in the armchair beneath the window. Children will love climbing up the steep second blue staircase to their cosy den beneath the eaves.

Having navigated your way around your apartment you will be ready to explore the nearby shops and restaurants at Les Halles where you can stock up with fresh baguettes, fruit and Basque specialities from the market.

Biarritz is of course a mecca for surfers and Oliver’s Travels guests can arrange surf coaching for all abilities or just equipment hire. Head to La Plage de la Cote des Basques, so near to you, and ride the waves alongside surfers from across the world.

Other services that can be offered include guided tours, bike rental and scooter hire or you may wish to hire a car or even personal chauffeur so you can get out and explore some of the further wonders of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques region, whether idyllic Basque villages near the majestic mountains, wilder beaches along the coast or pretty seaside villages.

You may prefer to just stay in your perfectly located apartment in Biarritz where you can explore, shop, dine, surf, play golf or just relax by one of the many wonderful beaches this part of the Basque coastline has to offer.

La Toile D’Artiste is situated on a residential road in the heart of Biarritz, seemingly remote from the hustle and bustle but in reality a few minutes walk from Les Halles de Biarritz. La Grande Plage, the city’s most famous beach is only 700m from the apartment.

Biarritz, an elegant resort in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques region of south-west France, dates back to the mid-19th century when the aristocracy built their summer residences along this section of the coast, including the well-known Hotel du Palais, built by the wife of Napoleon III.

The nearest surfing beach to your apartment is La Plage de la Cote des Basques (650m), which has become a favourite for riders of the waves. Biarritz is a surfing mecca for enthusiasts from all over the world, attracted to its 6km of spectacular coastline. There are many surfing schools which cater for all ages and abilities- coaching or equipment hire can be arranged for Oliver Travel’s guests during their stay.

If you love seafood, good restaurants can be found in Port des Pecheurs (650m), the former fishing port. Food lovers, don’t miss the restaurants and market at Les Halles de Biarritz (210m) where you will discover many Basque specialities. Have a taste of the touron (marzipan) and the locally cured ham.

When you need a break from the giant waves, there is a tiny sheltered beach at Port Vieux (550m), much loved by locals and situated near the town’s main shopping street, Rue Port Vieux. The History Museum (300m) and Cinema Le Royal (500m) are nearby when you feel like a day away from the ocean. Art Deco architecture is a theme throughout the city, especially along the La Grande Plage. The Casino and the Aquarium, a must for sea-lovers or families, are examples of the style. 

Another one of the town’s highlights is the spectacular Rocher de la Vierge peninsular (1km), which can be visited via the Eiffel bridge that connects it to the mainland. There are some incredible views from the fascinating lighthouse (2.2km) in the northern part of the town.

For a change of scene, head to the beaches to the north of the lighthouse along the Anglet coastline with wide, sandy stretches, some surrounded by grassland and forests and with a beautiful promenade for walkers and cyclists.

There are also some idyllic Basque villages inland to explore such as two of France’s Plus Beaux Villages; pretty Ainhoa (25km) and Sare (3km), where you can catch the old wooden train up to the summit of La Rhune, an iconic mountain in the Pyrenees with hiking trails through the Basque countryside and mountain and coastal views from its summit.

The whole region offers an extensive range of outdoor activities, including walking, horse- riding, fishing, cycling, canoeing and 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 include some wonderful beaches for families, not just La Grande Plage but smaller beaches such as Plage Milady, Port Vieux and Cotes des Basques, which has become a favourite for surfers. Biarritz is a surfing mecca with enthusiasts from all over the world attracted to its coastline and beyond - there are plenty of surfing schools for beginners of all ages including children.

A park and public garden can be found a couple of blocks from your apartment. It’s a lovely park with a play area for children.

If you want to view the coast in a more leisurely fashion and delight the kids, take the 30 minutes Biarritz road-train trip along the coast. When they are hungry, stop off at the Aquarium (750m) and lunch at the café which serves pizzas and wraps. Enjoy the display of marine life before you leave.

If you want to explore further afield, head south to St Jean de Luz (14.3km) 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.
