Local Area / Activities

The villa is very well located in the heart of the Pyrenees-Atlantiques department, in the renowned Aquitaine region in South of France.

Just a few minutes from the picturesque village of Ascain, and within easy reach of St Jean de Luz, Biarritz and the Spanish border.

In between the Atlantic Ocean and western Pyrenees is St. Jean de Luz, a fishing town with a lovely beach and beatiful 15th century architecture. The town was put 'on the map' in 1660: here, the Roi Soliel, Louis XIV married Marie Therese of Spain, the house where they stayed can still be visited.

The main historical building is the basque church of Saint John the Baptist, located in the central square and surrounded by a number of excellent restaurants and interesting shops. A local market takes place every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday.

Walk along the Grand Plage to the Rocher of the Vierge, or take the little Biarritz train to visit the coast! In the evenings, stroll through the town, Ste. Eugenie Place, have a drink marvelling at the little fishing port, dine in one of the numerous restaurants or simply taste a few of the specialities - tourons, rochers de la vierge, palets d'Izarra and a lot more!

The little port is still thriving and known for its sardines, anchovies and tuna fish, enjoy the colourful fishing boats from the terrace of a cafe.

From July to Sept. you can watch games of 'chistera' often followed by traditional dances and chants.

The region offers an extended range of outdoor activities, such as hiking, horse-back riding, fishing, cycling, canoeing and many others.

Golf and surf lovers cannot miss the chance to visit Biarritz, one of the most popular destinations in France. The city's unique personality stems from the eclectic mix of the French, Spanish and Basque cultures.

The Basque beaches attract surfers of all categories from all over the world, but the Vieux Port, Biarritz is ideal for children and the Grand Plage, St. Jean de Luz, for debutants.

Famous for its majestic beaches, luxury boutiques, excellent gastronomy and exciting nightlife, Biarritz is absoutely worth a visit.
