The house is huge, beautifully equipped and Valerie is loveliness personified. You are minutes from a great supermarket and 20 minutes from Pau if you want civilisation. Have never stayed anywhere better.

The positives for us were: Location, location,location! We knew about Les Halles but didn't appreciate how close we were, 2 minutes walk. Yet everything seemed so close and certainly no need for a car Property was clean and well equpped Owner responded promptly to communication Wifi was very strong Arranging for Late check out was ok too Negatives There weren't any really but probably worth mentioning outside area. We really like to sit outside and whilst there is a seating area it gets no sun at all and was bit overgrown. Maybe its better in peak of summer? The parts of the property that do get sun are Madame's and are for her sole use only. The beach is 10m walk away so it's not too bad. When we've stayed at other properties the owners sometimes leave a handbook with info, appliance manuals for example. There were manuals but they were all over the apartment in drawers, amongst magazines etc Knowing about refuse disposal, when ,where and how would have been helpful. We soon got to grips with the glass, paper recycling but we're not so sure about general waste We would definitely recommend this property but if you like to be outside in the sun for your morning coffee croissants or afternoon read you might have to go to a local cafe. Biarritz is an absolute gem if you love good food, outdoor lifestyle and like to explore. It's so easy to get around and the people are lovely.
