Where we want to go
Description of our house
Our apartment is not very big but it is well configured and very nice to live in. A notable feature is the large balcony (20 m2) which overlooks the beautiful countryside. It is on the 2nd floor (the top floor, without lift) of a small basque style building. It's centrally located for visiting and taking advantage of the region. There are two bedrooms and also a double bed on a mezzanine floor. We have a fully fitted kitchen.

Within walking distance is the beach and the golf course (9 holes and club house) or the equestrian centre. The towns of Biarritz, Bayonne, Saint Jean de Luz, are less than 10 minutes by car. In less than half an hour, one can find oneself in San Sebastian, a magnificent, yet down to earth Spanish town, or in some of the charming Basque villages in the foot hills of the Pyrénées mountains or in the Landaise forest (the biggest in Europe). A little further afield are the renowned cities of Bordeaux and Bilbao (with the famous Guggenheim museum), both less than 2 hours drive. Bidart is a traditional basque village just south of Biarritz, well situated for access to the "autoroute", Biarritz airport and train station.
