The prestigious seaside resort of Biarritz stands on the Atlantic coast and is a world famous surf spot. Above all, Biarritz is the jewel in the crown of the Pays Basque region, which has preserved its traditions and owes its continued popularity not only to its beaches but also to its fantastic quality of life. It enjoys a wonderful location on the sea, yet is just a stone’s throw from the mountains. The surrounding region has retained its authenticity, and Spain is just across the border. Rarely does one destination offer so much variety. Biarritz offers ongoing entertainment and cultural activities for all tastes and ages: theatre, festivals, concerts, village ‘fetes’.
The school is located in the centre of Biarritz, 5 minutes’ walk from markets, restaurants, cafés and boutiques in the lively Halles district and only 10 minutes from the world-famous surf spot at the Côte des Basques beach. Set in a typically Basque town house dating from 1850, with a terrace garden and a private swimming pool. Corinne and her team are on hand to welcome you for an unforgettable stay tailored to suit your requirements whether you are young, old, sporty, or simply curious. There is something for everyone.
There are many places of interest in Biarritz. The Virgin’s Rock (Tocher de la Vierge) and Musée de la Meer, are definitely worth visiting. Musée de la Meer features 24 aquariums containing more than 150 different species of fish and other colourful
wildlife. The city also benefits from an array of museums and galleries. Immerse yourself in the oriental culture of the Musée Asiatica. With a huge amount of history to take in and unique art on display, the exhibitions illuminate the cultures of the Orient. If you’re a chocolate lover, submit to the temptations of the Planète Musée du chocolat. Another attraction for those who just love the sea is the fishing port (Ports des Pêcheurs) where whale-hunters once gathered. Today it is a colourful site that boasts fish and seafood restaurants. The varied beaches stretch along 6 kilometres (4 miles) of Biarritz coastline, so beach lovers will be spoilt for choice.
