Overview

Pool Walk to Beach Walk to Village

Situated in the prestigious and elegant seaside resort of Biarritz, in the beautiful Basque region of France, Maison Exotique is a delightfully renovated traditional 1930’s Basque villa with heaps of character. With a plethora of activities emulating from one of the most famous stretches of coastline in the world just moments from your door, you’ll love all that Maison Exotique has to offer.

Recently renovated to a high standard, all the rooms in the villa have been well appointed with a lovely eye for detail. The entrance hall on the ground floor opens on to a large open plan living-dining space, drenched in natural light through huge windows, offering an array of stylish furnishings, a lovely fireplace and a large dining table, making this the perfect environment to entertain in. Adjoining this, you’ll find a charming TV room, delightfully inviting with bright décor and contemporary furniture. A well-equipped kitchen with modern finishes can also be found next to the living space, with direct access out onto the beautiful garden.

On the first level you’ll find the 3 of the 5 attractive bedrooms including a master boasting a king-size bed and its own dressing room. The remaining two bedrooms - a double and a twin room, can be found on the second level with a separate bathroom, making it an ideal space for children.

With a variety of beautiful fauna and flora adorning the garden, you’ll love to relax around the shaded dining area, perhaps cooking some local delights on the Plancha BBQ. Or take a dip in the lovely outdoor pool, cooling off in the afternoon sun. However you’ll like to spend your time here, you’ll feel a million miles away from the hub-bub of Biarritz, yet you’ll know that you’re only a hop step and a jump from the centre.

In fact, you are just 800m from the cool inviting waters of the Atlantic Ocean, as well as a 6km stretch of beautiful sandy beach backed by rugged scenery and some of the most sought-after waves in the world. You’ll find plenty to do aside from beach activities; surrounded by beautiful architecture you have a huge variety of shops, restaurants and nightlife with the centre of Biarritz within a half-hour walk. Additionally, the majestic Pyrénées mountains are only a short drive away with an abundance of pretty Basque villages perching atop awe-inspiring scenery.

Situated in vibrant Biarritz, the jewel in the crown of the dramatic Atlantic Coast, Maison Exotique benefits from a fantastic location with all the excitement of this fantastic town so near. Sitting on a residential road, amongst a mix of other lovely traditional 1930’s villas, you’ll love to know that just 800m down the road you’ll be able to dip your toes into the inviting waters of the ocean and have a spectacular 6km of beautiful sandy beaches to choose from. And with the glitz and glamour of one of France’s most renowned playgrounds of the rich and famous just moments from your door, you’ll never be short of things to keep everyone busy.

Biarritz is 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. In 1957 however, when American screen writer Peter Viertel caught a wave, suddenly Biarritz became the ultimate surf mecca, and the alluring dichotomy of this lively town was born; The French Riviera meets Surf City USA.

Considered one of the finest surf beaches in the world, the Grande Plage is a place to see and be seen, but head slightly up the coast to the long sandy beach Côtes des Basques for a truly authentic surfing experience. 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 delicious Basque specialities, from delicious touron (marzipan), succulent locally cured ham as well as mussels, mushrooms and so much more.

A lovely atmosphere can be found around the Port Vieux where you’ll discover a tiny sheltered beach loved by locals and the town’s main shopping street, Rue Port Vieux. Beautiful Art Deco buildings can be appreciated all around the town and especially along the main beach, including the casino (also home to a theatre and swimming pool) and the Aquarium, which is a must for sea-lovers or families. 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

Other coastal areas that are definitely worth a visit include the picturesque town of Ciboure (19km) to the south where Matisse once lived and the lively resort of Saint-Jean-de-Luz (18km) 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 a change of scenery, venture inland to explore some traditional Basque villages, such as two of France’s Plus Beaux Villages; pretty Ainhoa (28km) and Sare (26km), 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 spectacular views as well as some keen hiking opportunities. Hiking in this area is second to none, if you’re lucky you’ll even stumble across local shepherds as they tend to their flocks.

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 some wonderful beaches for families, not just the beach only 800m away but also smaller beaches such as Plage Milady and Cotes des Basques, which has become a favourite for surfers. Indeed, Biarritz has become a surfing mecca with surfers from all over the world being attracted to the 6km of Biarritz coastline and beyond and there are plenty of surfing schools for beginners of all ages including children.

You can take the little Biarritz road-train along the coast for a more leisurely way to see the Grande Plage with a trip lasting 30 minutes. The more energetic can head to the Lighthouse at the northern end of Biarritz and climb the 200 or so steps to be rewarded with magnificent views or head to the incredible Rocher of the Vierge peninsular with its Eiffel bridge for more wonderful views.

If you want to explore further afield, head south to St-Jean-de-Luz (18km) 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.

You’ll find a variety of animals at Zoo Labenne, 21 km north of Biarritz. A great day out for kids young and old.

The Basque region’s biggest adventure park is situated 27km from the villa. A great day out, Oihana Adventure Park is suitable for children from 6 years and up, with dynamic treetop courses for older children. They also offer Paintball here for the more gung-ho!

Real train lovers should head inland to Sare (26km) 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.
