Make a holiday rental property or villa in Bidart, France your home away from home

Bidart is a charming coastal village on the Cote Basque in southern France, bursting with Basque ambience, situated on a hilltop overlooking the Atlantic. The village stands just to the south of Biarritz, and although there are many comparisons to be made, the complete lack of crowds makes Bidart Biarritz’ tranquil neighbour. With permanently quiet beaches and the rich landscapes of the Pyrenean foothills both within walking distance of a self catering Bidart property, it is little wonder that Bidart has been kept so quiet by the lucky few that have already discovered it.

Things to do in Bidart, France

The typically Basque appearance of the town (white facades decorated with rich red shutters and beams) is wildly endearing, especially as the town remains crowd free, even during the height of the tourist season.

The hidden beaches of Bidart are a joy to discover. Nestled at the bottom of the cliffs that line the coast, Bidart's beaches are never crowded, giving those staying in Bidart accommodation to ability to pick and choose their ideal spot from which to enjoy a day in the sun. The coastline is rugged and lined with exceptional little cove beaches, which are ideal for family holidays in the sun.

However, most of those heading down to the beach every morning will have a surfboard under their arm. Bidart is one of France’s top surfing spots, but be warned, surfing in Bidart is not for the feint hearted, as 6-9 metre swells can crash onto the coastline. Experienced surfers flock to self catering Bidart villas and apartments throughout the year, but novices are advised not to head out into the break unless your swimming is very strong as there are rips. If you would like to learn to surf from a Bidart property rental, there are plenty of surfing schools in Biarritz, where conditions are more forgiving.

Turning the other direction from a Bidart villa, and you shall soon find yourself in the foothills of the Pyrenees. The area is an outdoor activity and cultural centre of the highest quality, with endless walking, mountain biking and horse riding opportunities, as well as a whole range of small villages where local cuisine and customs have changed little over the centuries. Walking, riding and cycling maps are available from the Biarritz and Bidart tourist information offices. There is also a delightful 9 hole golf course within a few minutes of a Bidart apartment.

Fabulous location for idylic Cote Basque holiday

5 of 5
Family Miller had a brilliant holiday in Bidart. The apartment was tastefully furnished with up to date appliances. convenient parking too. The winning hand was the balcony - broad enough to take an evening meal as the sun went down. Easy walk to dramatic beach and lovely village square.

The house was better than we'd hoped and the location perfect for us. Nathalie was superb with prompt responses with any problems. Can't wait to revisit next year
