Live comfortably inside a tastefully renovated house with every convenience, then open your door and step back 300 years into the tiny twisting streets of a unique Bearnaise town, a perfect location for exploring this idyllic corner of France. Although the house can sleep eight people, it works really well for smaller groups and even a couple would feel at home here.

Behind is a utility room with the usual machines and storage. A superb winding staircase leads to the three first floor bedrooms and shower room (with WC) and continues to the top floor 30 m² sitting room, which is light and airy and has splendid views of the Béarnaise rooftops...

About the neighbourhood

Biarritz (45 minutes) - a chic and vibrant town popular with tourists and surfers, Biarritz has some of the best beaches in Europe and its surfing is world class. Good for shops, restaurants and people watching. It’s easy to feel underdressed here!
