Overview

Pool Villa/House Modern Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Parking Space

Stay in style near Biarritz in this stunning grand house with private pool within walking distance to a renowned surfing beach and a wonderful golf course.

This traditional Maison de Maître has been completely renovated by a well-regarded local architect who has created a beautiful abode which combines gorgeous character with contemporary flair. Step inside the huge living room with its intricately tiled floor, original fireplace and light flooding in from the French windows, then wander through to the uber-modern extension with its sleek kitchen-diner and sliding doors opening up to the swimming pool and garden.

The five bedrooms over three floors are minimalist yet chic with a sense of authenticity in their subtle characterful features whilst the bathrooms are elegant and stylish. Up on the very top floor the bunk-bed bedroom will delight the kids under the sloping ceilings.

The swimming pool is just the perfect size for cooling off on hot summer days as kids play on the little lawn in the garden whilst the contemporary pool house and sumptuous sun loungers offer further spots for relaxation and outdoor living.

Just south of Biarritz, you can walk to the local beach with its sandy shores and crashing waves, a mecca for surfers as is much of this coastline. Backed by a couple of well-known summer restaurants and bars, it’s a cool place to hang out whether you’re looking for relaxed family lunches looking out to the ocean or summer weekend nights spent dancing by the beach.

Maison des Vagues is in a semi-residential/tourist area just off the road between Biarritz and Bidart, within walking distance to the beautiful Plage d'Ilbarritz, an absolute mecca for surfers.

There’s a small supermarket within walking distance which is open every day, a couple of restaurants nearby and you are also close to a horse-riding centre and Golf Ilbarritz, a nine-hole golf course with wonderful sea views. Lac de Mouriscot is also close, a lovely and relaxing place for walking and wildlife spotting.

Backing Plage d'Ilbarritz are some fantastic spots to watch the sun-set, dine, listen to music and even dance well into the night. This beach is very popular with surfers and there’s a watersports centre offering surfing, stand-up paddle boarding and body boarding as well as lessons. Just to the north, Plage de Milady is another beautiful sandy beach backed by a little playground great for youngsters and Plage de la Côte des Basques, another popular spot for surfing.

To the south there’s the charming suburb of Bidart (3km), a lovely Basque village with a handful of restaurants, a bakery and an air of authenticity. Climb down the cliffside steps to the beautiful ‘Plage des 100 Marches’ and watch surfers ride the waves as you relax looking over the ocean. Guéthary (6km) is also a great place to visit for its restaurants, bars, surfing hang-outs and overall cool vibe.

Keen walkers can follow parts of the 25km long trail following the coast as far as the Spanish border, passing through places such as St Jean de Luz (12km) and Ciboure (13km), both wonderful places to visit in their own right. If you walk south from Bidart you are gazing at the magnificent Rhune mountain as well as glorious ocean vistas.

You can also spend the day discovering more of the beautiful Basque interiors with delightful villages such as Ainhoa (24km) and Sare (23km) around half an hour away by car, both classified as one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’. Just outside Sare you can take a charming wooden train up to the summit of La Rhune where you can admire the amazing landscapes around you.

This is a great region for children with beaches, plenty of activities, watersports and beautiful interiors to explore. With walking distance to the local beach, this is a great spot for families with wide stretches of sand and fairly easy access. Just to the north, Plage Milady has a lovely promenade and a little playground for youngsters (it’s also near the museum Cité de l'Océan).

Visit Biarritz where you can wander along La Grande Plage, climb the steps of the charming lighthouse or cross the bridge designed by Gustave Eiffel to the Rocher de la Vierge. Younger children (and parents!) will appreciate the little road-train that tours along the sea-front and around town. Check out some of the town’s attractions such as the aquarium in the art-deco style building, Le Musée de la Mer.

Further south, St-Jean-de-Luz is a family-friendly seaside resort with all sorts of summer activities such as mini-golf, trampoline parks, a road-train as well as sandy beaches with playgrounds and more surfing opportunities. If you wish to discover the interiors of the beautiful Basque country then head inland to Sare where you can take an old wooden train all the way up to the top of La Rhune mountain for stunning coastal and Pyrénées mountain views.
