This little studio apartment was perfect for our two week holiday in Biarritz. It is opposite the Public Gardens, a beautiful park where we often took our lunch across to eat under the trees. It is within easy walking distance of the main beach, restaurants and shops, and near all the bus routes. The tourism office is also nearby - the staff there were very efficient and helpful. The apartment has everything that you need for your day-to-day living, and our hosts Remi and Geraldine were charming, helpful and accommodating - they also responded straight away to any queries we had. As an English-speaking ex-South African, now living in the UK, I would suggest to them that they have their brochure for the apartment, and the check-list that one signs, printed in English too, for any other customers like ourselves, whose French and/or Spanish is very limited - but this is a small point only, and I still unreservedly rate our stay in their apartment as Five Star.
We were made very welcome; all the little extras were provided too for our comfort. We made the most of our stay - visiting nearby pretty towns and relaxing in the countryside. It was a welcome break. The property is cool when hot outside as the blinds are very effective. In the evenings we played pool. It is well situated with fabulous views over the mountains and a pleasant 20 minute walk to the town . Worth visiting are: Le Petit Train de la Rhune, Bayonne, the caves at Sare. There are local walks signposted from Espelette. We very much enjoyed our stay in the Basque countryside and the farm was an ideal base.
