Park-like property very close to Biarritz

  • 4 of 5
This house was older, and as such the bathrooms were insufficient, especially downstairs. The beds were all double, but made for pygmies, MY feet were dangling, and I'm only 5'7'', as opposed to the 6'3'' of my husband and 2 sons. I would say that sleeping was the worst part of our stay there. There's also a lot of wood everywhere and there's a strong church-like odor, especially in the upstairs bedroom. That being said, the kitchen had everything we needed, including an extra refrigerator and separate freezer in the garage. The living room was full of what the owners think is art, to us it was just creepy, scary stuff. We didn't spend much time there. The BEST part of this house was the yard, so large and beautiful it looked more like a park, and the pictures don't do it justice. The owners really need to post more yard pictures! It was so nice, we were always outside, making barbeque, playing cards, listening to music, some of us playing in the pool. We went to the various beaches, but couldn't wait to come back to our beautiful yard to have wine and enjoy the view. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

Owner's Response: First and foremost we are happy to hear that you were pleased with your stay. The yard is beautiful and it's wonderful to hear you and your family were able to enjoy it.
Regarding the beds, they are standard queen and twins. We will though be sure to have our house manager do what she can to make them more comfortable for future renters, as well as have her look into the smell you spoke of.
Regarding the artwork, and like most artwork, it is not to everyone's taste. As they are very personal and sentimental to the owners family, we are in the process of having them shipped to another home.
Again it was a pleasure having you and your family , and we hope to see you again in the future.

This quaint little villa exceeds its descriptions by a mile. The property itself is not only situated perfectly between the small town of Biarritz and the rich country of Spain, but maintains a perfect balance of quiet privacy and urban proximity. The villa itself has a warm and inviting atmosphere, making it a perfect environment for families and guests of any age. The outdoor pool is a great asset for a sunny day, for which there are many, ensuring many days of lounging around or in the pool. Overall great experience with the family, had a lot of fun sightseeing and touring the rich history of Bayonne, and enjoying Basque cuisine from the Basque Country in Spain.

A perfect get away

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with our family for two weeks in July. It was fabulous. The villa was large enough for our family and the master bedroom upstairs gave me and my wife plenty of privacy. The pool was great and the kids spent most of the time outside.



The house is beautiful. It's a classic Basque-style house with a large family area downstairs. The dining table was long and large enough for the entire family including the kids. The house was cool even though it was hot outside. The yard is beautifully landscaped and you can see mountains in the distance.




The house is very close to several beaches and not far from the main beach of Biarritz. Biarritz itself is wonderful -- the shopping was great and the beach was perfect. There were plenty of great restaurants very close.




The house was clean and well maintained. Many of the appliances were new. There was laundry in the house as well which was convenient. There was Internet and a TV, though we didn't use them much.




We drove to several of the nearby towns, including St Jean De Luz and San Sebastian in nearby Spain. They're both amazingly beautiful towns and very close by. We also took a trip up into the mountains to the Basque town of Sare, where there are more sheep than people. We had lunch at a traditional, small restaurant and did some shopping there. It was wonderful.




The owners were easy to work with and very accommodating. In all, it was an amazing vacation and we loved it. We hope to go back again.

Simply Magical

  • 5 of 5
We had dreams of what Biarritz might be like: sun-dazzled beaches, delicious dining, fresh markets, sophisticated shopping, etc. What we found was a place even more magical than what we imagined. First, the home: sun-dazzled, gleaming, airy, tastefully artistic, comfortably elegant...a classic vacation villa, ideally located. We read by the pool, made breakfast in the well-equipped kitchen, and slept blissfully in the quiet evening breezes, sometimes awakened (not too early!) by church bells. Between the house and the beach, our vacation could have been complete! But, of course, Biarritz offers more: We were whisked there from Paris by high-speed train, an incredibly civilized way to travel. We strolled its streets and sampled the local (Basque-influenced) cuisine, from elegant cakes with jam in the morning to perfectly (and simply) prepared seafood in the evening. Biarritz is also an ideal base for day trips: San Sebastian for tapas and cobblestone alleyways above the perfect harbor. The Pyrennes for a tram ride and hiking among the pines. The countless charming villages and vineyards and out-of-the-way eateries that pop up along the winding country roads east of Bayonne. We can't say enough about this fantastic villa, or the fabulous seaside town of Biarritz.
