Biarritz villa near sandy beach and golf - just two minutes’ walk from the beach and a short stroll from beachfront shops & cafes at Plage de la Madrague, this easy-living property right on the edge of the Chiberta Golf Course is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. The first floor terrace overlooking the garden runs along the length of the house and is a perfect spot for outdoor dining and enjoying pleasant sea views.
Once the playground of aristocrats, Biarritz is a smart town, with good shopping and a famous casino for those who like the roulette tables. Anglet and the surrounding area is a golfer and surfer's paradise, with no less than 12 first class links and courses. Surfing and body boarding are very popular here owing to the exhilarating waves of the Atlantic: indeed world-class standard surfing competitions are held at Biarritz. Families will enjoy the warm climate and the long sandy beaches along this stretch of French coastline.
For trips away from the beach there is an aquarium and sea museum nearby. There are plenty of opportunities to watch exciting games of pelota, the local sport, and a scenic ride on the train into the Basque mountains would make a very memorable day out for the whole family. To the east is Bayonne, with its attractive historic centre, and to the south fashionable St Jean de Luz and the Spanish border. Inland are pretty villages such as Espelette, where you can see the locally-grown red peppers strung up from houses typical of the region, with their distinctive red and green-painted shutters. Head north for a much longer - but still just about feasible – day out to experience the incredible sand dunes of the Landes coastline, including the tallest sand dune in Europe ' Dune de Pyla' –truly remarkable.
Local specialities to try during your holiday include spicy hams and chocolate from Bayonne and gateau basque (Basque cake) which can be found in every bakery. With its tremendous seaside location this Biarritz villa is well positioned for exploring the southern part of the Atlantic coast and the Pays Basque, and for making the most of everything that chic Biarritz has to offer. A holiday based at Le Cygne would certainly give you and your family and friends plenty to remember for years to come.
If you like contemporary villas then this is for you. It always reminds me of a “seaside house” and does not disappoint. Whilst it does not have a pool the sea and the beach are just a short stroll from the house, which is such a bonus. The beach is excellent, long and sandy, and there are watersports, including surfing (and a surfing school), and golf locally. The Chiberta Golf club is recommended for its good greens and fine restaurant, all just two minutes from the house, and a five-minute drive will bring you to a bakery, patisserie and restaurants.
