A Luxurious Seaside City on the Bay of Biscay
The Atlantic coast of France stretching south from Bordeaux to the Spanish border has many miles of superb sandy beaches backed by pine forests. Towards the foothills of the Pyrenees is the Basque country with its unique language, traditions, architecture and cuisine. In the early 1900s its mild sub-tropical climate and wonderful beaches made it a fashionable Riviera destination around the gem resort towns of Biarritz, St. Jean de Luz, Hendaye and San Sebastian (in Spain).
There are superb examples of period architecture to be seen in these towns as well as the latest modern amenities. In recent years its world class surfing beaches and golf courses have put it on the map once more, bringing today’s style, luxury shopping, architecture and cuisine to this prestigious Atlantic Riviera.
