Overview

Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids

Imagine enjoying a late night swim in a heated pool beneath the moonlight before returning to the magnificent opulence of your holiday villa. Maison de la Lune is privately tucked away between the river Nive and woodland - its 1.4 hectares of garden could be better described as private parkland with its ancient trees and well-kept lawns sweeping down towards the river. This is such a private location yet downtown Bayonne and the beaches of the Anglet region are so easily accessible.

It’s perfect for large groups of friends or family, sleeping fourteen over three floors with plenty of bathrooms. The whole house is full of fascinating furniture, artwork, sculptures and ornaments, many of them described as collector’s items. Look out for the life size blue floral horse and the enormous wall paintings in the living and dining rooms. Lie back on the red lounger or relax on the sofa and floral chairs as you watch a film in the home cinema, situated alongside the kitchen in an Art Deco design extension added a few years ago.

Bayonne, just a five-minute drive away, is situated in the Basque country at the confluence of the Nive and Adour rivers, often described as one of the most charming cities in the region. It’s characterised by its narrow, cobbled, medieval streets, old ramparts and half-timbered riverside restaurants. There is plenty to see and do here. Visit the gothic style Bayonne Cathedral Sainte Marie with its 13th century cloister and Chateaux Vieux castle. Chocolate lovers, don’t forget to organise a trip to L’Atelier du Chocolat!

Nearby are the eleven stunning beaches of Anglet, each of which has something different to offer and provide plenty of opportunity for surfing, walking, golfing and cycling. Known as “Little California” they extend over 4.5km of fine sand from la Barre at the Adour Estuary to Chambre d’Amour, situated at the base of the majestic Cap Saint Martin cliff with its famous lighthouse.

The coastline is of course a mecca for surfers and coaching for all ages and abilities or just equipment hire can easily be accessed. Don’t forget to visit the famous La Grande Plage in Biarritz, a fifteen-minute drive away, and admire the Art Deco architecture.

You might also want to 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.

Maison de la Lune can be found at the end of a tree encased road with few other properties nearby. It is situated adjacent to the river Nive yet only a couple of kilometres from the centre of the city.

Bayonne is situated in the Basque country region of Southwest France at the confluence of the Nive and Adour rivers, one of the most charming cities in the region and capital of the French Basque country. It’s characterised by its narrow, cobbled, medieval streets, ramparts and half-timbered riverside restaurants. The 17th century ramparts are covered in grass with pretty parkland areas, some of which you can walk along.

There is plenty to see and do here. Visit the gothic style Bayonne Cathedral Sainte Marie (3.3km) with its 13th century cloister, Chateaux Vieux castle (3.4km) and Musée Basque (2.2km), devoted to the region’s arts, craft and traditions, giving a background to the culture and history of the area. The fine arts Musée Bonnat-Helleu (2km) is due to reopen soon. Chocolate lovers, don’t forget to organise a trip to L’Atelier du Chocolat (2.8km).

Rue des Faures was once home to the blacksmiths who made bayonets but it’s now the artisan quarter. It’s a great place to browse with galleries, bookshops and one of the last makhila makers – these are the wooden staffs traditionally carried by Basque shepherds.

Nearby are the eleven stunning beaches of Anglet, each of which has something different to offer and providing plenty of opportunity for surfing, walking, golfing and cycling. Known as “Little California” they extend over 4.5km of fine sand from la Barre at the Adour Estuary (10km) to Chambre d’Amour (9.9km), situated at the base of the majestic Cap Saint Martin cliff with its famous lighthouse. Sables d’Or (8.9km), lined with bars, restaurants and shops, hosts events throughout the summer with volleyball on the beach and spotlights to admire the waves at nightfall. Ocean beach (11km) is less accessible but will satisfy your craving for wilderness. If you would like to watch how the professional surfers compete, head to Les Cavaliers (10km).

The villa is of course very accessible to glitzy Biarritz with its famous La Grande Plage only 11km away, where the Art Deco Hotel du Palais was built by Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III, in 1855. Watch the surfers as you walk along the promenade towards Miramar beach. If you are feeling energetic climb the steps of the Phare for superb views over the city and the northern coastline.

While you are in Biarritz, visit the amazing market at Les Halles, (12km) where you can buy fresh fruit, seafood, vegetables, warm bread as well as typical Basque specialities. Gastronomers should visit the sea food restaurants in the Port des Pecheurs (13km), the city’s former fishing port.

The whole area is of course a mecca for surfers - coaching for all ages and abilities or just equipment hire can easily be accessed. Golfers will love NAS Golf Chiberta (11km) which surrounds Ocean beach and provides spectacular vistas of the ocean.

You might want to 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.) 

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 wonderful beaches for families nearby and the area has become a surfing mecca with enthusiasts from all over the world attracted to its many kilometres of coastline - there are plenty of surfing schools for beginners of all ages including children.

The beach at Les Corsaires (11km) has green space for ball games and kite flying. Plage La Barre (10km) is the smallest and quietest beach in Anglet where there is ice rink, lake, Skate Park and the beautiful ecological park Izadia, fantastic for the whole family.

L’Atelier du Chocolat (2.8km), a French version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, is guaranteed to delight the kids. Watch the chocolate being made, explore its little museum and treat yourselves from the shop. Bayonne also has a cinema and bowling alley.

In Biarritz, take the little road-train for a more leisurely way to see the coast with a trip lasting 30 minutes. Stop off afterwards at the Aquarium to have lunch at the café which serves a good selection of pizzas and wraps and enjoy the marine life displays before you leave.

Real train lovers should head southwards to Sare (35km) to catch the old wooden train up to the summit of La Rhune mountain where you will be greeted by spectacular views of the Pyrénées and coast on a clear day.
