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.

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.

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.

The house is well supplied with paper products, kitchen necessities, and indoor and outdoor furniture. You will want to sit outside in the beautiful garden and listen to the ocean. It is such a simple 2 minute walk through the woods to the beach. And there is a restaurant right at the beach below the house! We had a lovely stay. Thank you for sharing this retreat with us.

Beautiful setting and surrounding area . Visit could have been improved by a few simple instruction sheets for equipment ( which was generally very good ).Older couples might appreciate 2 w.c.s and more comfortable dining chairs for long conversational meals ,but generally thoroughly enjoyed our stay .
