Madame Aguirre was the consummate hostess. She was incredibly welcoming and helpful. As an American traveling abroad for the first time, it is quite a nerve wrecking experience albeit exciting to make arrangements in unknown places where one does not speak the language. Lucky for me Madame Aguirre is fluent in Spanish and being as it is my native tongue, communication was easy. My boyfriend and I stayed in this adorable little place for a few days on my first trip to Biarritz. We were greeted at the SNCF station by her and she was very kind she even drove us to a bank to be able to change our US dollars into Euros. She was very maternal and pleasant. The apartment was perfect for our stay. It is located in a building were I believe many retired persons live but it was quite and safe and just what we needed.
The apartment is very close to a pharmacy and bakery and just a couple of blocks from lots of shopping and eating. We spent New Years at the Hotel Du Palais where we were engaged and were able to walk there from the apartment. It is also within walking distance of the Casino. It is very much the perfect location to stay if your are going to be in Biarritz. Biarritz is such a charming place and so is Madame Aguirre. Gracias por todo!
