You can see the ocean from this fantastic apartment, so very well situated near the centre of glamorous Biarritz.

It’s only a short walk to La Côte des Basques, one of the town’s most famous surfing beaches and a stroll to nearby shops and restaurants. You’ll love the atmosphere in the nearby covered food markets of Les Halles where you can sample and buy all kinds of Basque specialities.

The second floor apartment is in an elegant old building which has been renovated retaining high ceilings and a sense of space. It has been cleverly designed with an eye for style but also for those practical details that make a holiday so much more relaxing. Subtle storage solutions maintain a minimalist, calm and uncluttered feel enhanced by the white walls, wooden floors and splashes of colour.

There’s a sea and sky blue theme in the kitchen and double bedroom, the kids will love the cheerful bunk beds in their bright and cheerful room and the master bedroom has the benefit of its own shower room. There’s a breakfast bar and plenty of room for six to eat comfortably at the dining table. You can throw open the two sets of French windows in the living and dining areas and stand by the juliet-style balconies for an even better view of the sea and sky beyond.

Biarritz is an exciting town close to the Spanish border renowned for its wonderful beaches, Art Deco architecture and superb food. It’s a surfer’s paradise which attracts enthusiasts from all over the world and there are plenty of surfing schools along the coast which welcome children and beginners.

Take a break from the ocean and head towards one of the idyllic inland Basque villages such as Ainhoa or Sare where you can take a train up to the top of La Rhune, one of the most magnificent peaks of the Pyrénées. There are so many outdoor activities to be enjoyed in the region such as walking, riding, fishing, cycling, canoeing as well as a variety of water-sports along the coast.

Les Galets is situated just off the coastal road only a short walk from shops, restaurants and one of the city’s best surfing beaches, La Côte des Basques, just a 5-minute stroll away. If you want to fill your fridge with local Basque specialities head to the bustle of the covered food markets of Les Halles, also nearby. 

Glamorous Biarritz is a very elegant resort on the Bay of Biscay in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques region, south-west of France, near the border with Spain. Aristocracy built their summer homes along the coast in the middle of the 19th century, including the famous Hôtel du Palais, built by Eugenie, the wife of Napoleon III, who had spent her childhood holidays on this coast.

The nearby beach, La Côte des Basques, is the birthplace of France’s surfing scene and is popular with long-boarders who enjoy shelter from the northern winds. It’s also great for beginners as there is a surf school here – there’s the added excitement of everyone having to move back when the high tide envelops it!

There are plenty of other beaches though and you shouldn’t miss a walk along the promenade of the town’s most famous beach, La Grande Plage. Central Port Vieux is a smaller sheltered beach ideal for younger children and, to the south, Plage Milady is also very family friendly with a garden and playground.

Other coastal areas to visit include Ciboure to the south west where Matisse once lived and the lively Saint-Jean-de-Luz with its fabulous sandy beach, walks, family activities and golf courses.

Put away the surf boards and buckets and spades for a day and take a trip by car to one of the idyllic Basque villages inland such as Ainhoa and Sare, where you can take the train up to the dramatic peak of La Rhune.

There is just so much to enjoy in this region - walking, riding, fishing, cycling, and canoeing as well as the huge range of water-sports. You may be tempted to just stay near your lovely, comfortable apartment, sit and admire the sea and sky with a glass of wine or take a walk down to your local beach.

Biarritz has 6kms of sea and sand and is just fabulous for kids. Smaller children might enjoy a break from the wilder waves at beaches such as central Port Vieux or Plage Milady, a 20-minute walk south of the apartment, which has a children’s playground.

Look out for surfing schools dotted along the Biarritz coastline and beyond. Just north of the town, a short drive away, the wilder Anglet beaches and forests have some great promenades and tracks for biking or lovely walks (you may also enjoy the Izadia Ecology Park in Anglet right next to Chiberta beach).

Closer to home, Pierre Forsans Public Garden has a kid’s area and is a relaxing spot to stroll around or eat that freshly purchased baguette. You can take a sight-seeing tour up the coast for 30 minutes on the little Biarritz road train and stop off at the lighthouse to conquer the 200 steps before enjoying a relaxing afternoon at the café or on the little beach below.

There’s an Animal Park at Labenne or for that extra spot of adventure, try a spot of rock climbing at The Roof in Bayonne. Find more family fun in St-Jean-de-Luz with trampoline parks, mini golf and yet another road-train.
