Beautiful Biarritz Ocean View Loft Apartment-Steps from the ocean!

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Large and spacious artist loft apartment with ocean views sleeps 4-5

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. Located just steps from the ocean and a short 5-10 minute walk to all the shops, markets, restaurants and cafes in town.

You can choose to go out on the town, or just stay home and relax overlooking the Atlantic ocean and feel away from it all.

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 everything in town.

There is a daily open air market two short blocks away, with fresh produce of the region as well as locally made artisian wine and cheese. Also just one block away is the Kimana spa which is a full service spa as well as fitness facility.

Besides sweeping ocean views, the fourth window overlooks Spain.

San sebastian 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.

Sleeping areas-

The bedroom with a large king sized bed is located on the main floor.

Up the spiral staircase, a mezzanine awaits with an open spacious sleeping loft with a queen sized bed where you will have the best nights sleep after an active day.

There is also a queen sized day bed in the main living room.


The large spacious bathroom features a large tub for two, under skylights which let the glow of the sunshine in. The toilet is located in a separate chamber away from the main shower area.

The living room...

The open plan living room boasts high vaulted ceilings and an incredible amount of light flooding in through all of the four sea facing windows.

A sofa and a queen sized day bed make up the living room and are placed around the fireplace for those fresh summer nights or cool winter ones.

Connected to the main sitting area is a smaller sitting room which has a couch where you can relax and look out the window to the ocean and which you can also see Spain. We've seen some of the best Biarritz sunsets from here.

Off to the other side of the living area is another smaller separate room which can be used as an extra area for closet space as well as storing luggage and surfboards.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need for those home cooked meals made fresh from your market produce. Pots, pans, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, juicer, large refrigerator, as well as 5 burner gas stove with oven. The dinning area is connected to the kitchen in an open plan living arrangement with windows that look out into the private courtyard.

The apartment is fully equipped with a large flat screen TV with cable/DVD as well as Wi-Fi internet.

For your added convenience, there is also a washer and dryer in the apartment.

Besides the wood burning fireplace, there are heaters provided for winter rentals.

The beach directly in front of the building which is Cote de Basque, is famous for it's world class waves. Its the perfect spot for long boarding as well as learning to surf. Surf schools and surfboard rentals are available at the beach down the stairs right in front of the building.

Bicycle and motor bike rentals are also located across the street.

The loft is conveniently located just 10 minutes from both the Biarritz airport and train station. Car rentals are available at both locations.

Biarritz is only a short one hour flight from Paris.

The San Sebastian airport in Spain is only 30 minutes by car so the airport located there is also a great option to fly into.

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, NY, LA and Sydney but, Biarritz is one of my favorite places and I feel at home while I am here. It is one of the coolest little French beach cities you will come across with amazing food, restaurants, and people.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2001

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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 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.

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

Hey Malia,

we just wanted to say a huge thanks for renting us your place over the last couple of weeks.

For our family of 4 ( 2 adults & 2 teenage girls ) it was perfect. We were enrolled in a surf school pretty much every day, so the location was amazing.

The view, proximity to the beach and the town…the space…it was so great.

We'll be back!

We had a great time. The view was absolutely amazing.

  • 5 of 5

The setting within Biarritz was so wonderful. We walked everywhere when we were in town. And we would rush home so we wouldn't miss the sunset before going out for dinner.

The apartment has a delightful artist feel to it.

All those who helped with the check-in and the check-out were very kind too.

The property is conveniently located: 3 min walk away from the beach and right by the city center close to restaurants and stores.

It is a nice apartment with a loft and a view over the ocean. Perfect for two couples or a family with children. Spacious and with a kitchen that comes with all the equipments. Neat and quite at night.

Fantastic apartment with ocean views, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this charming loft apartment for 4 days/nights and were absolutely thrilled. The property is in the perfect location, right across the street from the beach, has beautiful views of the ocean, as well as the sunrise and the sunset too! It's also an easy walk to town, great restaurants, shops and all that Biarritz has to offer. We hope to be back again very soon!
