Overview

Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

Situated at the foothills of the majestic Pyrénées mountains, just a few minutes’ drive from the fantastic Atlantic coast and the golden beaches that adorn this beautiful part of the world, Maison des Pins offers guests a modern oasis perfectly situated to explore, relax and enjoy everything the Basque region has to offer. And with the bustling tourist destination of Biarritz just 10 minutes’ drive away you’ll be spoilt for choice. 

The villa offers guests a sprawling stylish interior, with each room carefully curated with contemporary features and ultra-modern finishes. On the ground floor a large living room provides guests with a sleek space in which to enjoy fantastic views through huge floor to ceiling windows, and an elegant fireplace to gather round for cosier evenings. A beautiful kitchen/diner continues to emit that wow factor with its smart sophisticated design, giving guests the opportunity to dine in comfort with French doors opening out to the shaded terrace area. 

The property can accommodate 10 guests over 5 delightful bedrooms. All of which feel bright and modern with large windows to soak up the Basque sunshine and the lush scenery that surrounds the villa. A twin and a double room are accessed on the garden level, while two doubles and a beautiful Master bedroom can be found on the first floor. The Master boasts an ensuite bathroom, and sliding doors onto a beautiful terrace, providing fantastic mountain views. 

The wonderful grounds offer a plethora of vegetation, shielding the property from the outside world; an oasis of green set against the terracotta hued villa. The stylish heated pool is the perfect spot to while away a warm afternoon, taking time to read a book or simply relax on one of the comfortable loungers. The terrace area offers guests some welcome shade in which to enjoy that essential sun downer cocktail while taking in the mountain views or dining al fresco on a long summer’s evening. 

The location of Maison des Pins couldn’t be more ideal to discover one of the most famed coastlines in the world. Just a few minutes away by car, 6 beaches stretch for 6km from the pretty towns of Guéthary towards Bidart, presenting wild rugged cliffs and a stunning mountainous backdrop. Being a major hot spot for surfers, surf schools are easy to come by so grab a board and have a go.

Steeped in character, the nearby towns offer plenty of traditional eateries, and shops, but if it’s more glamour and hub-bub you’re after then the bright lights of Biarritz are only 12km up the coast. And for family friendly atmosphere and beaches head to St Jean de Luz just 7km away.

Situated at the foothills of the Pyrénées, just moments from the Atlantic coast, Villa Maison des Pins offers guests the perfect location to enjoy the lush picturesque countryside and world-famous coastline just a few minutes’ drive away, that makes the Basque area one of the most sought-after holiday destinations in Europe.

As you step out of the beautiful confines of the property, you’ll enjoy a quiet rural location, with a smattering of neighbours, and views to the majestic mountains beyond. There is a local shop providing all your essentials just a couple of minute’s drive away, but the pretty seaside village of Guéthary is only 2.5 km away providing you with plenty of shops, restaurants, nightlife and beautiful beaches. You’ll be perfectly placed halfway between the larger towns of family friendly St-Jean-de-Luz and the vibrant Biarritz, both just around 10 minutes’ drive from the villa.

Once a whaling station, Guéthary has become a stylish getaway for the Basque coast’s jet set. Set out along a steep green hillside that leads down to an attractive harbour and rugged seafront, it provides a perfect spot for an afternoon stroll around its winding walkways, amongst some beautiful art deco architecture. A few small beaches can be found in the centre, but the best, Parlementia, is located at the far end with great sun-bathing opportunities and good surf for the intermediate level and above. Beginners should head out along the coast to Handaye or St-Jean-de-Luz for easier to master waves.

For a change of scenery, venture inland to explore some idyllic Basque villages, such as two of France’s Plus Beaux Villages; pretty Ainhoa (22km) and Sare (20km), 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 some lovely hiking opportunities. Hiking in this area is second to none; taking in the mountain air, stumbling across beautiful architecture, and ambling over lush green hillsides greeted by local shepherds as they tend to their flocks. Just perfect.

If you’re looking to experience the vibrancy of town-life, head north to the heart of Biarritz (12km), an elegant seaside resort dating back to the 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.

You will find some superb restaurants in the Port des Pecheurs, the former fishing port, where ordering some beautifully fresh seafood is a must. Food lovers don’t miss the fantastic market at the Halles de Biarritz, offering many wonderful Basque specialities, from delicious touron (marzipan), succulent locally cured ham as well as mussels, mushrooms and so much more.

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 you’ll find some incredible views.

Other coastal areas that are definitely worth a visit include the picturesque town of Ciboure (9km) to the south where Matisse once lived and the lively resort of Saint-Jean-de-Luz (7km) with a great sandy beach and plenty of family-friendly activities, as well as an abundance of golf courses and lovely walks along the surrounding coastline and hills.

For the sporting amongst you, it’s not just the surf that attracts people to this area. The whole region offers an extended range of outdoor activities, such as walking, horse-back riding, fishing, golf, cycling, and canoeing. You won’t be disappointed.

The 6km of coastline around Biarritz includes many wonderful beaches more suitable for families. Parlementia beach in Guéthary is a great spot for building sandcastles on its pristine white sand. La Grande Plage in the heart of the Biarritz is a vibrant playground for any youngster. But there are also smaller beaches such as Plage Milady (with a promenade, playground and nearby museum Cité de l'Océan) and Cotes des Basques, which has also become an essential destination for surfers. This entire area is a mecca for surfers from around the globe, so you’ll never be far from a surf school for beginners of all ages, including children. 

A great little activity in the heart of Biarritz, is a little road-train you can take along the coast for a more leisurely way to see the town’s coast, whilst the more energetic can head north to the lighthouse and climb the 200 or so steps to be rewarded with some stunning views. 

Driving south to St Jean de Luz (7km) 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. Additionally, the surf here is gentler than further north, so an ideal place for those budding surfers to learn.

Real train lovers should head to the inland village of Sare (20km) 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 the coast on a clear day.
