Biarritz apartment description
The beautiful and chic seaside town of Biarritz has been called 'Paris on the ocean!' And this beautiful, ocean view loft apartment is in the middle of it all. Located along the coast of the world famous Cote de Basque, this spacious light filled loft directly overlooks the sea from 4 large windows, and is just steps to the ocean.
This is the apartment where your dreams of a french seaside vacation come to life, recently re-modeled and equipped with all your modern conveniences, choose to go out on the town, or stay home and relax overlooking the Atlantic ocean. The apartment stays cool and quiet in the summertime and is a retreat from the summer crowds and heat. But as soon as you're ready to hit the town, the loft is just a short walk to all the restaurants, shops, markets, patisseries and cafes of the town. There is a daily open air market two short blocks away, with fresh produce of the region and also locally made artisian wine and cheese. Also just one block away is the famous Kimana spa which is a full service spa as well as fitness facility.
Besides just overlooking the ocean, the fourth window overlooks Spain, which is just a short 30 minute drive and worth exploring for shopping, lunch or tapas.
Other activities for the area is surfing at Cote de Basque which is famous for it's world class waves and also where the Biarritz International surf festival is held every year.
Golf is also very big in the area and there are 10 courses near-by with many world class golf events through-out the year.
In the first bedroom is large king sized bed with a wardrobe in which you can unpack your things and get settled....
Up the spiral staircase, there are two queen sized beds located in the spacious loft with vaulted ceilings where you will have the best nights sleep after an active day.
The large spacious bathroom features a large tub for two, under skylights which let the glow of the sunshine in. The toilet is in a separate chamber away from the main shower area.
The living room...
The living room boasts high vaulted ceilings and an incredible amount of light flooding in through the sea facing windows.
There is a beautiful yet comfortable roche bobois sofa in the sitting area for you to relax on facing the cozy fireplace for those fresh summer nights or cool winter ones.
Off to one side of the living area is a separate room which can be used as an office space equipped with a desk for use as a home office as wireless internet is available. On the other side of the sitting area is a small sitting room which has a window looking out towards the ocean as well as Spain!

Excellent Stay in Biarritz
Excellent Stay in Biarritz
This past summer we spent a week in Biarritz and loved it, we only wish we went for 2 weeks instead of 1 week. We booked this apartment to be used for our family including a nanny so there were 3 adults and a baby. The size was perfect for our needs, and we were able to use the facilities to eat meals at the apartment as well. The location was fantastic due to beach location, and walking distance to town. We parked our car for free on the street for the week, and walked everywhere. Highly recommend Biarritz for singles or familes.

The apartment was very comfortable, with an extraordinary view of the ocean and easy walking distance to downtown. Also very short distance to airport and train station. The agent for the apartment was very helpful. He even took me to the train station so I did not have to get a taxi! The fire place was very useful as we had a couple of days of bad weather with a manificent view of the stormy ocean. It was lvoely to lie in front of the fire, watch the angry wind, read out books, drink wine and munch on brie and crackers. The weather after that was perfect. Had a great time with shopping , eating lunch overlooking the ocean at the Palais Royal Hotel and trying the many tapas places. . I will be making a reservaiton soon to return next year as we were only able to explore a very small portion of the many beautiful sites during our one week stay. I have already recommended this property to all my friends.

We traveled to the apartment from Paris with our niece as a college graduation gift. Malia was wonderful to work with from the beginning questions to finishing up our trip. We had a very heartbreaking last day and she went above and beyond to insure it was made as easy as possible. The apartment was immaculate, large and open. The loft room upstairs was perfect for the young adults and the location amazing. A quick walk to the market and all of downtown with gorgeous beaches and so much to do. We would love to return to Biarritz and hope to be lucky enough to stay at the apartment again.

Great location and sunsets......
Great location and sunsets......
My husband and I spent a week in this apartment and LOVED it. The location can't be beat, across from the beach, short walk into Biarritz, easy to get in and out of town and amazing sunsets every night! We rented a car and had no problem parking on the street. The market that is usually quite close has temporarily moved while they renovate but it was easy to drive to. The market was so incredible that we spent most evenings cooking in with a nice bottle of wine. The kitchen had everything we needed including a rice cooker. The apartment has a lot of charm with vaulted ceiings and the wood beams, comfortable beds, sofas etc. I worked while we were there and the internet service was great. Ate at a lovely bistro, Le Pimp Pi, the night we did go out - highly recommend this...Wished we could've stayed longer. We will back!

My family and I had a wonderful stay in this great apartment! The views are amazing! Initially we were hoping for some outdoor space, but we didn't miss it because of the expansive views of the ocean out the windows. The location is ideal for heading to the beach, downtown, local restaurants and running along the water with some bonus stairs. The apartment was well stocked, particularly with kitchen items, and very clean. We have two little girls, three and one, we put the three year old upstairs and the one year old in her playpen in the little storage nook. Both of these spaces are open to the living room and kitchen, but it worked out fine for us. The owner was very communicative during and after our stay and was prompt in answering our questions. Everyone we dealt with during this transaction was helpful and courteous. Thank you.

Our family wishes to sincerely thank you for allowing us to share in your little part of heaven! Your property manager was very prompt in greeting us when we arrived, and equally accommodating the night before we left. Your pictures on the website are beautiful but can't begin to convey its true beauty and warmth - as well as the spaciousness of your property. After a busy day of sight-seeing and enjoying the magnificence of all that southern France has to offer, we would end the day not by saying "let's go back to the apartment", but rather "let's head home". We were so glad the apartment had 3 windows facing front because it allowed each of us to pick a window and gaze at the amazing view each and everyday. While we took hundreds of pictures there is no way to capture what we actually saw and felt during our time there. Your apartment was perfect for our needs and I don't think in all of Biarritz we could have found a more warm, welcoming place to stay. Lastly, Malia - you are wonderful "long distance" hostess. You made sure all our questions were answered and were patient and prompt in responding to our needs. If there were 10 stars to rate your apartment we would give it that plus a few more.

Vacation like a local

This rental is perfectly located above the famous Cote des Basques. You are close enough to walk to the market and tourist areas, but far enough away to feel like you might actually live there. The apartment itself is very nice and well-styled, also well-maintained. Beds are comfy, kitchen fully equipped, and the internet is fast. The rental manager is super nice and the lady next door is really sweet, even if you don't understand a word she says (I don't speak French). We had no problems with the paperwork. The owner handles the details before you rent and she is also very nice and accommodating. Rumor has it that she might be a decent surfer. You have an amazing view of the surf from the breakfast nook...picture yourself in the morning watching the sets roll-in with a cup of coffee and a baguette. The break itself is probably the softest wave I have ever been on. Even when way overhead, it is very weak, which is actually great if you are a beginner. It is a very safe wave. Experienced surfers should bring more foam than they are used to... a lot of foam... or plan on walking to the next bay, it has a little more punch. My wife, myself, and my sister with her boyfriend stayed here together and we LOVED it. We've all lived on the beach before and know what to expect. I don't think there is a better place to stay in Biarritz...period. We'll be visiting again soon!

My husband, my daughter and I stayed for a week in this wonderful apartment. We didn't want to leave! The location was amazing - a beautiful view of the ocean and close enough to walk to everything. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back.

*** Review Information ************************************* Property/Unit : 256125 - "Beautiful Ocean View Loft Apartment!" Reviewer NickName: Sandy Review Rating : 5/5 Review Title : 998647 - "Awe-inspiring view and comfortable accommodation!" "Hi Malia. I would like to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed staying at your property in Biarritz. The ocean view and the cross-breezes that flowed through the apartment were spectacular and soul-soothing. Your little alcove room was my favourite location to sip a glass of wine and watch the waves crashing towards shore. The location was perfect for us - just outside the town centre but close enough to walk to shopping, the market and restaurants. There were four of us with two guests for a few nights and not once did we feel crowded. The two futons in the loft and the main bedroom amply provided for our needs. The linens were clean and fresh and the open concept great room was truly inviting after a day's exploring. We never ran out of hot water and the large tub was great for a relaxing soak. Lots of room in the kitchen to prepare a large meal or just sit around and talk. The pictures of your property can't really show the actual scale of the apartment which is a lovely restored heritage residence; not too fussy, just perfect. I certainly plan to return in the near future. Sincerely, Sandy Ontario, Canada

About the owner: I have surfed and traveled the world for 10 years, and have always come back to France for the waves, but also the culture, food and wine! I have lived in Paris, but, Biarritz is one of my favorite places and I feel at home while I am here. It is the coolest little French beach city you will come across with amazing food, restaurants, and people.
Why the Owner Chose Biarritz:
Besides having the best beaches France, the basque country has so much culture, amazing food and wine, and the people here are incredibly friendly! World class surf breaks right out the door and Spain is just down the street.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apartment looks over the beautiful coastline at cote de basque...and from the last window out to Spain! We love being on the ocean and having the beach just steps away. We love how peaceful and relaxing it is in the apartment, yet being centrally located we are with-in walking to everything going on in town. Only a few streets away is the open air market where we get our fresh produce every morning as well as fresh croissants for breakfast and wine and cheese for the day. We are also just a few steps from the best restaurants, bars and shops of the area. And being a close 30 minutes from spain so we often go for lunch or tapas. You won't want to go home! Biarritz is such a community that staying in your own apartment instead of a hotel really lets you live the French way of life.
