From the Owner
“I first visited the region of Biarritz and Capbreton in 2003. I stayed with my friends and my family and I fell in love with and Capbreton and the region. It's hot and sunny for many months of the year. Beaches and forests are beautiful and unspoilt and both are very close to our apartment. There are many outdoor recreation and other activities. The old town has real character. The port and harbour are picturesque, with fresh fish daily. Food and restaurants are excellent at affordable prices. The people are very friendly and welcoming. Above all you feel that you are in the real France. We chose this property because of its superb location close to town and beaches, but also overlooking the river, old oak trees and the pool and just around the corner the forest. The residence and the apartment are also very high quality.”
