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!!!!!'

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!

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!

Great studio in Biarritz !

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in Biarritz : we studio is perfectly located, with a great view on the sea : having a drink on the balcony, looking at the sunshine on the sea, hearing the sound of the waves is absolutely fabulous!

The studio is well fitted, the bed is very good, and there is a great view on the sea from the shower ! Around the studio : nice villas, the "Grand palace", and a direct access to the beach. Perfect for 2 guys to spend a great stay in front of the ocean :-)

Best Place in Biarritz

  • 5 of 5

I was planning to visit the Basque region and stay somewhere by the sea to relax and finish some work and have fun. I really wanted San Sebastián but didn't find something by the sea and ended up with this place which turned out to be better than San Sebastián.

Biarritz is a charming small city (more intimate than San Sebastián) with brilliant food and activities. The studio I stayed in was very modern and just right for a person or a couple looking for some time away.

Isabel was gracious and very helpful, everything I needed was there in the studio which probably has one of the best locations and views in the city.

You can easily move around the city walking, everything is close by and it's very nice to walk around. It is also a perfect location to explore the other cities around in France and Spain. It was an u forgettable stay for me.

Hope you enjoy your stay!
