WALK TO THE BEACH, SURF & DOWNTOWN BIARRITZ

Biarritz Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

Biarritz is a charming small coastal town located on the south Atlantic, well known for its great surf! Biarritz is also within a two hour beautiful drive to the Pyrénées Mountains (for skiing & hiking) and a ½ hour drive from the border with Spain.

The apartment is located one and ½ blocks from the beach (Côte des Basques), one house down from a park (with a playground), three blocks from the daily open market & grocery store and a short walk from the old port and the downtown, with a lot of restaurants, shops, museum and the casino! It is also a short cab drive or a convenient bus connection to both the airport and the train station.

This ground floor apartment sleep five: There is a front bedroom w/ a queen bed and a pick view of the ocean; and a back bedroom with bunk beds & a daybed w/ a trundle. There is a fully equiped efficiency kitchen and a small bathroom with a washing machine. The living room includes a dinning area next to the kitchen and a lounging area on the street side, very comfortably furnished and decorated in the local Basque style!

We are a Franco-American family (with 3 children). We live in Santa Barbara, California and this is our little home in France.

We were first attracted to Biarritz by the surfing, but we settled there because of the charm of the Pays Basque.

We love to check the surf throughout the day from the Côte des Basques and enjoy the breath taking views of Spain. We also like to get coffee in the morning or sangria at sunset from the outdoor café & tapas bar on the Côte des Basques. We enjoy eating at the great Basque restaurant, the Cidrerie Hernani, down the street - a local favorite! Our bakery is Le Fournil du Rocher, two blocks away.

This experience was by far our best experience with a VRBO home! The owner, Emannuelle, lives in the US but is French SO she was able to guide us through everything perfectly. The property is darling - we ended up getting rid of the rental car as we could walk everywhere - grocery, shopping, beach, food, you name it's a couple blocks away - you look straight down the street from the front door and see the ocean! We love Biarritz and 20 yrs later I was able to take the kids back to our fave spot. The house is spotless, new kitchen (we cooked all but 2 nights in three weeks!), perfect bedrooms, quiet street, easy parking if you do have a car, washing machine, nice living room/dining room, all in all, perfect! We were so comfortable there we emailed the owner and stayed an extra week and a half! Her counter part was kind enough to drive us to the airport the day we left and he is very available should you have questions. We will be going back for hopefully a full month next summer!!! Loved it:-) You are close to Spain (20 min to San Seb); Hossegor is a cool beach town up the coast about twenty minutes, Bidart, St. Jean Luiz, all super close and fantastic. Couldn't ask for a better home, kinder owner & overall AAA+++ experience!

We spent 5 nights in this adorable and very comfortable flat. It includes a compact kitchen that has everything anyone could need. We really appreciated having the clothes washer! The beach and main town area were a very short walk. There were lots of cafes and other great places to eat (including an amazing Basque restaurant just a block away!) as well as a great bakery, market, and other shops nearby. There was a problem with the stove, but it was quickly and efficiently fixed by the manager-- both he and Emmanuelle were very responsive. The weather wasn't the best (a bit cold/rainy), but the heater worked well and the comforter on the bed was plenty cozy. We really enjoyed exploring this lovely town! We walked just about everywhere and also used the buses, which were very convenient. We'd definitely come back!

Biarritz Vacation

Does the thought of renting an apartment from a private person in a city you have never been to in a country 5,000 miles away give you pause? Not with this apartment, the owner and local agent made this part of our vacation experience great: We were frazzled to realize that our drive from Paris to Biarritz coincided with the first day of the annual European vacation migration and that were going to miss our appointment to get the keys to the apartment by many hours and arrive late at night. After calling the local agent en route, using a combination of English and rudimentary French to communicate, we were comforted to know that he understood – “everyone in the whole world is coming here today” – and that he would be there to give us the keys when we arrived, we simply needed to give him another call when we arrived. Additionally, the owner provided lots of great tips on local restaurants and stores allowing us to quickly settle in.
The apartment has a great location: a short five minute walk west and you are at La Grande Plage, a long beautiful sandy beach great for swimming and surfing; a five minute walk north and you are downtown Biarritz where you can shop for groceries in the famous local food market (Les Halles), the local rotisserie or pick up your bread at any of the numerous local bakeries; and, a two minute walk down the street to the Cidrerie Hernani restaurant, which serves an amazing Basque/Spanish cuisine. In our short time there, we also managed a day-trip over the Pyrenees Mountains into northern Spain and the Basque city of San Sebastian and it was well worth the time with some very beautiful scenery.
The apartment itself has all the basics including a complete kitchen, a bathroom with shower, two bedrooms to sleep up to five and a family room with a sitting area and a separate dining table area and it was in good working condition. We simply walked in and started using it. For us, with three growing boys and widely varying tastes in foods, simply being able to cook and prepare breakfast and meals such as pasta without having to negotiate and compromise in order to go somewhere is of great value. We all quickly felt at ease in the apartment and made good use of it. With five persons in our party, the apartment got a little hot at times, eased somewhat by making good use of the fan as well as the window and entry door shutters.

Having never traveled to this part of France before I was really looking for a place that was well situated and fully functional (i.e. full stocked kitchen, towels, linens). This apartment was EXACTLY what I was looking for. My parents (elderly father), sister and I stayed here very comfortably for 6 days. We were greeted right away by Alexandre and he was even nice enough to drive us to the station on our last day. The owners were also very good about having a instructional binder at the apartment and maps, not to mention being very accessible via email.
It's central location in the city ensured that everyone got to do what they wanted (fabulous beaches, shopping, visiting surrounding towns) without a car. The kitchen made it easy to take a break from eating out and enjoy a simple homemade meal. The only small downsides are that there isn't a lot of air circulation so it takes longer for towels and such to dry, and since the windows open onto street level you often hear passersby talking (sometimes very late into the night, which is to be expected during high season when lots of people are out enjoying the clubs and tapas bars).
Overall, I would definitely recommend this rental and have no regrets of choosing to go here rather than a hotel or another vacation place.
On a side note, I would also recommend everyone take a day trip or two to San Sebastian and Saint-Jean-de-Luz, which are both easily accessible with or without a car.
Merci Emmanuelle!

Out the front door and straight ahead for 2 blocks and then descend 183 stone steps (or take the slanted walkways) to the beach, "Cote du Basque". Out the front door and to the left 3 blocks and you are at the fabulous fresh market. Out the door and to the right into fab shopping and cafe's. OK we loved it. The best thing about this place is its location. It's simple and clean, and yes the front room is a bit noisy from foot traffic, but it was cool enough to close the shutters. It's best to skip renting a car as you really need protected parking in Biarritz.
