Interaction with Guests
I will of course give you all the information you request about the numerous interesting visits you can do in the Basque coast which I know very well. You’ll find also a large choice of touristic guides, flyers and articles about the Basque country and how to discover it. As I’m mostly present at home, I’ll be available for any advice.
Quiet area far from the noise of the central town or from a high street, where everybody says hello to each other. The golf course is a few meters away (18 holes). Our shopping area is very busy and lively. You will enjoy taking a walk and have a drink at the terrace of a café. Two good Michelin awarded restaurants and two wine shops are waiting for the gourmets.
Several bus lines link the area to the airport or the railway station. Nearby free shuttles for the town center which cover the main places of interest in Biarritz (beaches, casino, market, town center and shops).The nearest beach is 7 minutes on foot. The central Biarritz beach (Grande Plage), the casino, the Hôtel du Palais and the shops are only 15 minutes on foot. Golfers you will be spoiled!

nous avons été très bien accueillies par notre hote qui nous a
offert un rafraichissement, et nous a fait visiter sa maison
conforme à la description: cosy, calme bien située.
nous avons pu partager quelques moments et ainsi pouvoir échanger
sur la région et ses attraits.
Excellent séjour chez Françoise, bon accueil avec apéro et visite des alentours. De très bons conseils pour visiter la région ! Une adresse à recommander ! Merci Françoise !
Francoise is a great host, fond and knowledgeable about the basque country. She is not short of stories and details about the city and the surrounding area.
Place is old-fashioned but charming. We had a room and our own bathroom, both neat and clean with anything needed. There is also a small garden/terrace and a kitchen with fridge that we put to good use.
Location is ideal, just next to the golf and a few minutes away from the beach. A few minutes more and you can reach a shopping neighborhood or the beach front. Car is still recommended to explore the hidden gems of the basque country or to reach farther beaches.
Parfait petit séjour chez Françoise pendant les fêtes de Bayonne. Françoise est quelqu'un qui prend soin de ses hôtes, elle nous a fait découvrir le quartier qui est au calme et très bien situé. Une grande chambre était à notre disposition où nous y avons très bien dormi. Idéal pour y passer quelques jours! Encore merci pour cet accueil chaleureux.
Avant le séjour Françoise a établi un sympathique contact par mail. Françoise nous a accueilli et proposé une petite balade des environs pour se repérer et indiquer des lieux d'intérêts. La maison et le linges étaient très propres, la literie confortable.
Françoise was a lovely host, she was welcoming and friendly! My friend Gemma and I arrived into Biarritz at different times and she was very accommodating with this and took Gemma for a walk around the neighbourhood. Françoise gave us a lot of great tips about the area. The room and house were very charming; nice and clean, just as shown in the photos. Would recommend staying here!
About the Host, Françoise
Curieuse de m'ouvrir aux différentes cultures, de partager des expériences, et de découvrir les beautés de notre planète, j'ai voyagé en Europe, Afrique, Outre-Mer,Amérique du Sud et en Asie. Je suis donc en mesure d'apprécier ce qu'il est important de trouver lors des escales : un accueil chaleureux, une disponibilité, une écoute et tout ce qui rend la vie plus facile et agréable. Je souhaite faire partager ces valeurs à mes hôtes, tout comme j'espère les trouver lorsque je voyage.
Je parle français, anglais et espagnol et attends de vous rencontrer ! A bientôt !
