Biarritz is situated in the Basque region and is probably one of my favorite places in France. Being on the Atlantic Coast, it is a surfer’s paradise and reminds me so much of the ocean in Cape Town.
We went to the beach, visited the aquarium, strolled the beautiful promenade and ate one too many Acia bowl. If you are travelling with children Airbnb will probably be your best bet. We stayed in a lovely apartment in “centre ville” so we walked everywhere.
Biarritz is also ony 35km from the Spanish border, so you could easily do a day trip to San Sebastian, a beautiful resort town.
