PR1241 Villa Opale

St Jean De Luz, Biarritz | Sleeps 8
villa St Jean de Luz
St Jean de Luz villa with pool

St Jean de Luz villa with pool - Villa Opale is a striking villa with views over the ocean, situated between the typical fishing village of Guethary and the chic town of Saint Jean de Luz.  This is a unique property displaying the best of cutting edge modern architecture and design. Built into the hillside, the brilliant white, angular facade is softened with a grassed roof, exotic wood decking and beautifully landscaped surroundings.  There is an intimate enclosed courtyard terrace with a ‘lookout window’ and Jacuzzi where you can relax and admire the sea views in complete privacy.

Set between the Atlantic Ocean and ‘Trois Couronnes’ National Park, St Jean de Luz is a jewel in the Basque Country. This pretty town is just dripping with charm, from its port lined with colourful boats to its delightful squares and quaint pedestrian streets lined with boutique shops and restaurants.  It is the last major town before heading south into Spain and neighbouring Saint-Sebastian.  There are many sandy beaches along this coastline and lots of water sports on offer. Fashionable Biarritz hosts the famous Surf Festival which attracts competitors from as far as Australia and Hawaii. Golfers are well catered for on the links course in nearby Bidart.  

The Basque people have a strong culture and heritage which is still visible today in the distinctive architecture, traditional dress and language of the region.  The Espelette pepper is the cornerstone of Basque cuisine, used in the production of Bayonne ham; if you head into the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains to the village of Espelette you can still see these red peppers drying in the traditional way.

I'm delighted to have found this wonderful, exclusive little development of only 3 villas close to the lovely town of St Jean de Luz.  Although they are close together, the architecture and landscaping has been so cleverly done that you still enjoy privacy in each and the services available here are great.  There is a sandy beach (listed as one of the Sunday Times' '6 favourite secret beaches in Europe' 03/03/13), and restaurants close to the villa so you can leave your car behind and walk to these places.  St Jean de Luz has great shops and good seafood restaurants.  Stroll along the promenade in Biarritz and have a leisurely drink watching the world go by.  This area is heavenly!
