Overview

Pool Villa/House Modern Wellness Ideal for Kids
Pets on Request
Walk to Beach All Bedrooms En-Suite Parking Space

Gaze through the pine trees towards the Atlantic ocean from the beautiful upper terrace of Villa Luciphane, a contemporary holiday home close to the Basque village of Bidart and only 5km south of Biarritz.

This chic air-conditioned villa sleeps up to 8 guests across its four gorgeous bedrooms, each one featuring a modern ensuite bathroom. On the upper floor, a stylish open-plan living and dining space with an American-style kitchen is flooded with light from the sliding windows that lead straight to the sea-view terrace. On the garden level below, there’s another lounge with a large-screen TV, a second kitchen near the swimming pool and a fitness room and extra shower.

It's wonderful to be able to dine al-fresco on both the upper terrace and beside the swimming pool. Guests of all ages will adore the heated swimming pool whilst the pretty garden is also home to a boules court. All in all, this inviting abode is ideal whether you are a group of friends wishing to experience the surfing vibes of the Pays Basque or a family wanting to enjoy the superb surroundings.

Walk down the path and steps to the remote beach nearby and appreciate the incredible scenery around you – it’s a popular spot with surfers (indeed, there are plenty of surfing schools in the region). You may prefer to cycle or drive to Plage d'Ilbarritz or Plage de Bidart whilst the most active of guests can join the coastal hiking route from nearby Plage d'Erretegia.

The charming village of Bidart is just 2km away, perched above the coastline and home to traditional Basque houses, inviting restaurants and pretty café terraces. Then there’s the allure of Biarritz with its iconic beaches, Belle Époque architecture and fantastic restaurants and shops, all reached within a 10-minute drive.

Enjoying gorgeous views towards the sea through the pine trees, Villa Luciphane is located on a residential street just outside the Basque coastal village of Bidart. If flying, Biarritz Airport is 5km away or take the TGV train service from Paris Montparnasse to Gare de Biarritz taking just over four hours. Bilbao’s ferry terminal is less than a 2-hour drive away.
   
There is a high-end restaurant serving Basque cuisine around a few minutes walk away as well as a large supermarket just as close. Other amenities and restaurants can be found in Bidart (2km) or towards the historic town of Biarritz (5km). Being close to the main road that connects Biarritz to Bidart, Guéthary and beyond, this is an excellent location for exploring the Pays Basque. Bike hire is recommended for keen cyclists with plenty of cycling routes across the area.

You can reach the Atlantic coast within 600m via a steep path and steps leading down to the remote Plage des 100 Marches. Alternatively, it is a short drive/cycle ride to wonderful beaches such as Plage d'Ilbarritz (2km), Plage de Milady (2.5km) or south towards Plage de Bidart (2km). The incredible coastal hiking path between Bidart and Hendaye begins close by offering amazing opportunities for keen walkers – start off at Plage d'Erretegia just over 1km away and it takes around 3 hours 30 minutes to reach Saint-Jean-de-Luz. There are also ample surfing schools along this coastline.

Bidart (2km) is a charming village with traditional Basque houses, delightful café terraces and inviting restaurants perched above the Atlantic coast below. A little further south, soak up the surfing vibe of Guéthary (4.5km) or spend time at the calmer bay and family-friendly resort of Saint-Jean-de-Luz (10km). Golf enthusiasts have a wide range of courses to choose from in Saint-Jean-de-Luz and Biarritz.

Some of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ are within easy driving distance such as Ainhoa (23km) and Sare (22km) whilst the handsome city of Bayonne (13km) is an interesting day out. Meanwhile, appreciate the vibrant ambience of nearby Biarritz (5km) and La Grande Plage, it’s iconic city beach. Biarritz is loved for its restaurant scene, shops, Basque indoor market, Le Port des Pêcheurs, museums, lighthouse and superb surfing beaches of course.

With so many beaches and family attractions close by, Biarritz and the surrounding area is a fantastic place for family holidays.

Villa Luciphane enjoys a convenient setting close to two popular beaches to the north, Plage d'Ilbarritz and Plage de Milady, both a short drive or cycle away. Find surfing schools along this coastline as well as seasonal beachside restaurants and there is a playground by Plage de Milady. The interactive Cité de l'Océan museum is just over 2km by car.

To the south is the family-friendly seaside town of Saint-Jean-de-Luz with its picturesque bay and summer beachside activities such as trampolines, a carrousel and play areas.

Another lovely trip is the old wooden train ride from the station near Sare to the summit of La Rhune, Le Train de La Rhune. Meanwhile, look out for an tree-top activity centre and paintballing near Hendaye at Oihana, less than half an hour away, and adventurous watersports for older children/teens such as rafting, canyoning and more at Cocktail Aventure in the mountains.
