About the property

My apartment is a wonderful 'nest' on the sea. The elevator gives you straight access to the Miramar beach, from there you are five minutes walk from the Biarritz Casino, and even clother to the Sofitel and ´thalassothérapy'.

You can watch the sunset from the balcony and relax in the sun.

You can do everything by foot in Biarritz but there is also a free shuttle to 'les Halles' Market (open daily until 1 pm) and around town.

There is a door in front of 'the promenade' of the ocean when you can take a shower put transat before coming back at the appartment after the beach : the PEDILUVE

Perfect for a couple or couple with child until 10 years old.

There is a janitor for the security.

Very quiet place, no cars only the sound of the waves.

The check-in is at noon and check-out is at 10am.

3 days minimum .

I have an other appartment in Paris vrbo320389

History

Biarritz is a Basque name with locative suffix -itz (cp. Isturitz) attested Bearriz in 1170, Bearids in 1186, Bearritz in 1249.

Biarritz has long made its fortune from the sea: as a whaling settlement from the twelfth century onwards. In the 18th century, doctors recommended that the ocean at Biarritz had therapeutic properties, inspiring patients to make pilgrimages to the beach for alleged cures for their ailments.

Biarritz became more renowned in 1854 when Empress Eugenie (the wife of Napoleon III) built a palace on the beach (now the Hôtel du Palais). European royalty, including British monarchs Queen Victoria and King Edward VII (who caused a minor scandal when he called H. H. Asquith to kiss hands at Biarritz in 1908 rather than return to London for the purpose),[1] and the Spanish king Alfonso XIII, were frequent visitors.

Biarritz's casino (opened 10 August 1901) and beaches make the town a notable tourist centre for Europeans and East Coast North Americans. The city has also become a prime destination for surfers from around the world, developing a nightlife and surf-based culture.

At the end of World War II in Europe, the U.S. Army's Information and Educational Branch was ordered to establish an overseas university campus for demobilized American service men and women in the French resort town of Biarritz. Under General Samuel L. McCroskey, the hotels and casinos of Biarritz were converted into quarters, labs and class spaces for U.S. service personnel. The University opened 10 August 1945 and approximately 10,000 students attended an 8-week term. This campus was set up to provide a transition between army life and subsequent attendance at a university in the USA, and therefore students attended for just one term. After three successful terms the G.I. University closed in March 1946 (see G. I. American Universities).

About Fargeot Isabel

I am a dance and yoga teacher, I live between Paris Ile St Louis and Biarritz.

I started to rent my place on vrbo and Homeaway (vrbo 320389) in 'Ile St. Louis' Paris, my customers are mostly American citizens. My two children help me out when I'm travelling.

Biarritz is an amazing location to take a break from the big city rush.

Fargeot Isabel purchased this apartment in 2015

Why Fargeot Isabel chose Cote Basque - Biarritz area

My dream was to have an ocean view, Biarritz is wonderful and very quiet after Paris where I have an appartment at Ile St. Louis ( vrbo 320389).

What makes this apartment unique

There is a wonderful Spa In Sofitel ' on the beach at one minute. And I do my yoga on the beach or on my balcony 'face a la mer!!!!!'

Awesome view, perfect address, stylish compact living!

  • 5 of 5

Clean and cool studio, a lot of smart technical solutions and also great taste for decoration. Just by the beach, could not be closer to the waves. The casino and downtown Biarritz just a few minutes walk away. Second floor, safe and quite.

Inside, this studio really worked. Outside, it was stupendous!

  • 5 of 5

How many times have you washed under your arms in the shower while at the same time tracking the last big breaker on the high tide beach? Imagine a 1000 square foot one-bedroom apartment swoosh-shrunken to a 10x20 space that has more storage space than your mother ever had, every kitchen and home appliance known to man, all the beach toys, and then ... THEN:

The. Most. Fabulous. Beach. View. You. Have. Ever. Seen. !!!

Take a look at the low-tide photo - that's exactly what you see. And the mid-tide experience with the booming surf and swells is riveting, either from your balcony, or the few steps away onto the sand itself. High-tide is so dramatic - often in tune with the incredible crescendo of chromatic sunsets - that you say, maybe, let's just stay and watch!

We are a couple that like to have our own space, usually need some time on our own, get bored by the usual stunning beach ... and we spent 16 nights here and absolutely hated to go. We loved Biarritz shopping and cafes, but we spent most of our meals out in and around the small nearby quartier of St. Charles.

I'm not usually a gusher, but this is a super super place with a 10x view. Go there!

Beautiful, pristine beachfront rental

  • 5 of 5

Isabel's apartment is pristine! It was the perfect size for us, as we weren't planning on spending much time inside. The view can't be beat (you can see the beach from the bathroom)! The balcony is perfect for eating breakfast or a glass of wine at sunset. The kitchen was well equipped for us to make it through our first morning (coffee, biscuits etc.) and there is a small grocery store very close by. Isabel's welcome packet is thorough and has great dinner and shopping recomendations. The best part was the location of the apartment -- it's on the quieter end of the beach, but still a short walk to the bustling center or Biarritz.

Overall I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our trip. Isabel was helpful and gracious and really went above and beyond the typical host. We will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful week!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was really nice. Smart and modern layout, well equipped for our needs and with an optimal localization with a beautiful waterfront view.

Direct access to the beach and a nice walk along the shore to the city center with it's many possibilities for good eating - and for shopping too.

I recommend the apartment for two people!
