My husband and I met our daughter, who lives in Antibes, here to celebrate her big birthday. We had the large apartment and it was absolutely wonderful,with the view of the ocean, right in front of our terrace where our breakfast was served each day,and the sound of the waves was mesmerizing. The style of this little hotel is in...

We stayed at this hotel for 4 days in July this year. We were looking for a place that was on the water and close to Biarritz and San Sebastián (by car). This certainly was the perfect spot. It is quiet with only 8 rooms and an apartment next door. 6 of the 8 rooms have an ocean view. It...

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights on our honeymoon. We were originally supposed to stay for only 2 nights but loved it so much we extended our stay by another day.

We choose this place based on TA reviews and we are very glad we did so. Amazing location away from all the busy tourist beaches. Very quaint and high quality little boutique hotel. The good: - great sunset and sea views - only 12 rooms makes it quite in a residential neighborhood - lovely small pool, great lawn over looking...

I can't say enough about how much I loved this very special inn. It is perched up over a stretch of beach and rocks with a beautiful view and surfers below allowing you to hear the ocean at night while you sleep. After a lackluster experience in Spain we knew immediately that we found the right place next to the...

We stopped in Bidart for a few days with our french bulldog and 19month old daughter. They were wonderful in that they provided my daughter with a comfortable crib. The best part about the room and the hotel was that it faced the ocean with access to the beach below and a short walk to another beach next door. But...

This hotel has a lot going for it but it needs some money spending on it. First the location is a delight overlooking the sea and very quiet. The staff are charming and very helpful and Bidart is well located between Biarritz and St Jean de Luz. The hotel is more a B&B, it does not have a restaurant. First...

Love this hotel by the ocean. Bidart is a small atlantic village, Basque, charming, walkable. The hotel Villa L'arche is in a quiet residential beach neighborhood entered through a gate in a hedge. The host is quirky and charming...very tan. On his reception desk sits a plastic lime green Buddha head that let's you know the atmosphere in the lobby....
