Gorgeous apartment in Central Bayonne, France
Gorgeous flat, located in the heart of Bayonne centre. The flat is situated directly next to the beautiful iconic Cathedrale de Sainte-Marie de Bayonne. You can wake up to beautiful views of the church every day. Bayonne is a charming little town, with everything at your footstep - shops, cafes, the river (a 2 min walk away), a charming little park. Bayonne is 15 minutes by bus/car to the beach, and only half an hour from Spain!
The flat itself is 59 sq. m. in size, with a very large and airy living room with views of the cathedral and cobbled street outside. There are several car parks within 5-10 minutes walk from the apartment, which are not very costly. The flat is in a lovely old stone building c1800, on the ground floor with its own entrance to the street.

From the Owner
“I bought this flat in central Bayonne 5 years ago as I fell in love with South West France and the Basque Country back in the late 1970's. I particularly like Bayonne as it is a lovely old town with a life of its own, but it is not far from the sea or the mountains.”

Bayonne is a beautiful medieval town much favoured by the French for their own holidays. Much pleasure can be gained from wandering the narrow cobbled streets in the centre, or admiring the river views from the banks of the Nive and Adour. There are many interesting shops selling local food or arts and crafts. Chocolate making is a tradition in Bayonne and there are several artisan chocolate shops.
Because of the the proximity to Spain and the sea, the Spanish influence in the food is very noticeable and seafood is affordable and popular.
Ideal base for a beach or walking holiday.

From the Owner
“As the flat is right in the middle of town, the large number of shops, restaurants and cafes are all within walking distance. Despite being central the flat is in a quiet side street with very little noise at night. It has lots of character, being in an old stone building in the picturesque and well preserved historic centre of the town.”
