Two minutes walk from the Port Vieux Beach and within ten minutes of le Grande Plage, Biarritz centre and the fabulous Les Halles market and surrounding cafes and restaurants, its perfectly placed for a variety of activities. Plenty of local activity means that its not for those who want to snooze on their own balcony but we thought it was great and our posse of mid-teen girls absolutely loved it!
