Discover the Region


Located less than 25 km from the Spanish border, the city of Biarritz is a breath of bracing sea air, boasting 4 kilometres of Atlantic coastline. Tucked into the south-western tip of France, Biarritz and the Basque Country region have a wide range of cultural, culinary and sports activities to suit every taste. This region, with its strong identity, provides its residents with a unique quality of life.


Among the neighbouring cities and towns, don’t miss Bayonne! Take a stroll beneath its arcades or along the banks of the Nive River, especially on market day, or all week long in the shopping district around the magnificent cathedral.


The village of St-Jean-de-Luz, former pirate stronghold with its quaint fishing port, has undeniable charm. In 1660, Louis XIV, King of France, married the Infanta of Spain there, in the beautiful church.
