Just metres from the lookout point on the headland overlooking Bidart Beach, this charming timber framed village house offers great mountain and sea views, just 150 metres from the centre of Bidart with shops, restaurants and cafes. Built at the turn of the 19th Century, this traditional Basque village house has sprung into new life with a renovation of epic proportions. Whilst the exterior exudes the charm of a bygone era, the interior offers a cool, urban vibe. A small but perfectly formed garden surrounds the 11m pool, perfect for morning laps. The charming Basque village of Bidart is on your doorstep. Ever popular among families for its deep stretch of golden sand, it also offers a challenge to surfers of all abilities. With a great choice of shops and restaurants you may be tempted to just stay put for the entirety of your holiday, but it would be such a pity to miss everything else on offer in the fabulous Basque region. Biarritz is a busy town with beautiful architecture, chic boutiques and great restaurants. After a busy day about town, choose one of the seafront cafes to sit and enjoy an ‘Amer Picon’ aperitif as you watch the locals switch from office worker to surfer dude (and dudette!). Then onto the Casino for a fun night out. Inland are the stunning Pyrenees Mountains. There is a train which runs up to the highest peak, delivering a magnificent view of the entire region. Further south, St Jean de Luz must not be missed, and San Sebastian, just over the Spanish border is also worth a day trip.
Everything you need is on the doorstep of this lovely property. Bidart is a superb holiday destination for all age groups. Great surfing beaches; if not a surfer, superb restaurants and bars. Great sea food too! The village cafe serves lovely tea and cakes and the old square is just down the road with a choice of restaurants.
