Biarritz beach holiday: in a superb location right on the beachfront, with fantastic sea views, L’Esplanade is a comfortable holiday apartment within an easy stroll of cafes, restaurants and shops. Steps alongside the apartment building lead down to the beach and promenade just moments away: everything you need or want is close at hand. And after a busy day, what nicer than to relax on the balcony terrace and enjoy the stunning ocean view right in front of you.
Fashionable Biarritz, deep in the south on France’s Atlantic coast, is well known for its long sandy beaches, top class surfing, chic cafés, smart shops, casino and Belle Epoque architecture. All types of activities are available locally. As well as 12 golf courses within a 20-mile radius, there are spas and thalassotherapy centres, surfing at Bidart, delta-planing, horse riding, mountain biking, go-karts and hiking, to mention just a few of your options!
The Pays Basque region has a lot to offer, and St Jean de Luz a short drive south would be an excellent place to start exploring. Not far from St Jean is La Rhune mountain: you can take the little train to the top and enjoy panoramic views across the region from the 3,000ft summit, before returning either by train or on foot (allow 2-3 hours if walking down!). And if you feel like popping over the border for a taste of another country during your stay, why not? Spain is only 45 minutes away: you could visit attractive San Sebastian, or even Bilbao and its Guggenheim museum. Either would make a great day trip and add a little extra something to your Biarritz beach holiday. At L'Esplanade you can experience authentic France with an unforgettable Basque flavour. Local cuisine focuses on the use of high quality, seasonal ingredients: the coastal area provides plenty of fish and seafood, while fresh and cured meats, vegetables and legumes are produced inland. Local drinks include Basque cider and also Izarra, sweet liqueurs based on the flavours of peppermint and almonds.
“A delightful apartment right on the beach with lovely sea views. The long sandy beach is perfect for children and, with the many water sports available, ideal for adults too. There are some excellent restaurants within a short walk of the apartment, particularly along the seafront. Check out Chez Coco, in the old workrooms of Coco Chanel. It’s great to watch the surfers from your balcony terrace, and the sunsets are stunning. The hotel next to the apartment offers very good spa treatments, including thalassotherapy (50% reductions). The best of all worlds here then, with the town centre just two minutes’ walk from your door.”

We had a fantastic stay at L'esplanade.
We had a fantastic stay at L'esplanade. Everyone we came into contact with over the course of our stay was on hand whenever we needed and happy to help show us where to go and what to do during our stay. The owner of the property, Pierre, even took us to play Pala (a traditional sport from the region) during our stay, offering us a really unique experience of the local culture. The apartment was in a great location with spectacular views and was the ideal location for a week of r&r. Honestly, we couldn't fault it!
We had a fantastic time
We had a fantastic time, the proximity of the property to the beach and the town meant we didn't need to use the car the whole time we were there. The fittings were to a high standard and the flat was well equipped generally.
As regards the service we received we found at all points from booking to managing our arrival your people were friendly and helpful.
