About de Matteis

We are a family with two children. We work in Paris, although we have never broken our own ties with our birthplace!

de Matteis purchased this apartment in 2014

Why de Matteis chose Biarritz

We both come from the area. We incessantly searched for a flat to unwind in the heart of our beautiful country. We chose this one in 2014 after falling in love with it and its setting. Here you can feel completely removed from the world and still in the heart of town. Eight months of work was necessary to give the flat its own feel.

What makes this apartment unique

The flat is spacious, very well lit, and designed so that everyone can find their own space. If the weather is not quite right for going to the beach, you can enjoy the large, pleasant indoor space. There is a functional and well-equipped kitchen. The dining room offers a 10-seat table.

Beautifully appointed character apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Right in the hustle and bustle of the pedestrianised Rue du Port Vieux with its bars, restaurants and boutique shops, this comfortable, spacious high ceilinged traditional apartment has been refurbished to a high standard in a minimalist style. 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!

Very nicely decorated and clean apartment, right in the heart of everything in Biarritz

  • 4 of 5

The property is very well located in the heart of Biarritz. It is very near the beaches and is the heart of the restaurants and shops.

It's location does make it slightly noisier than locations further out but we did not find it too bad even with a 17 month old.

The apartment is beautifully decorated and very well-equipped - especially if you are a fan of nice coffee.

The only negative is that although there are some balconies, you can't walk out on to them and so essentially there is no outside space.

Altogether, however, a great apartment and highly recommended.

Gorgeous apartment in Biarritz

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this apartment and wished it was our own to stay in forever. It's a very big space, so even though we were five people, we were able to be at "home" all together and not feel crowded. The design of the space and the decor are gorgeous and cool but also very comfortable. We loved the kitchen and enjoyed many meals in at the lovely, large dining room table. There is a fantastic market (Les Halles) not too far away so it was great to pick up some gorgeous produce and seafood and cook up a feast.

The location is perfect, just a few steps away from one of the beaches and near to all the different neighbourhoods in Biarritz. There are a few bars just below the apartment so you may want to keep the windows shut on some nights but otherwise it's a very quiet spot. We didn't hear our neighbours ever.

Everything has been considered in the beautiful apartment but if you need anything, the owner and/or the property manager are only ever a text away. We'd definitely come back for another stay.

Je recommande vivement cette location

  • 5 of 5

Séjour dans un appartement vaste, lumineux, sobre mais décoré avec goût sans ostentation superflue mais faut aimer le style...nous on aime!

Idéalement situé à proximité des plages, des commerces, bars et restaurants...Donc que du positif.

Accueil très sympathique par Xavier et attention délicate concernant le panier d'accueil qui fait toujours plaisir.

Venez à Biarritz et vous ne serez pas déçu sinon vous serez malheureux partout dans le monde!!!
