James' appartement is the perfect place to discover and enjoy Biarritz and the Basque Country. We stayed there with our 8-months old baby and it was great. Super comfy, great location, luminous, spacious and very close to the beach. James is also a great host. He is very friendly and gave us heaps of great tips and recommendations to make the most of our stay. Totally recommend it!

James is s great host and helped us make the most of our time in Biarritz. The apartment is in a fantastic location, close to bakeries and beach - our main criteria! Nice touch that we had beach towels as this is not always the case in beach locations. Biarritz had plenty to offer and I would recommend Les Halles which is a great food market hall with a really nice vibe in the surrounding cafes and bars. Will definitely visit this area of France again.

We loved our stay in Biarritz! James' apartment is very well located - around 5 min walk to the nearest beach, and a short walk to Les Halles for hip bars and good food. James is a really friendly and helpful host, on hand with suggestions and has a guidebook in the apartment with many more things to do. Enjoy!

Hi, I am James, I am 35 years old and have been living in Biarritz since June 2002. I fell in love with Biarritz immediately and have been here ever since. I love to surf and hike, I surf almost everyday the waves are good and usually go to the mountains for walking once a week. I also go snowboarding in the winter in the local resorts.

I like doing other sports including swimming across the bay of the Grand Plage, running along the coast and going to the gym.

I also enjoy socialising and catching up with my friends who live in the area.

I grew up in the North of England in a town called Blackpool from there I spent 1 year in Australia before moving to France after being offered a job for a international distribution company based in Biarritz.
