Bienvenue to Biarritz! This stylish and ever so slightly glitzy seaside town is in a beautiful spot on the Basque coast in the south west of France. Popularity of this bustling resort has grown with holiday makers since European royalty began visiting in the mid 19th Century, most notably Napoleon III and his Spanish born wife, Eugenie. Situated close to the Spanish border, you will have scorching summers and a mild climate for the remainder of the year, allowing you to explore its sensational coastline. Biarritz is considered a holiday maker’s playground as people travel from all over to play golf, rugby, basque pelota and the main attraction that this coast offers, the surfing.
Now you can fly direct to Biarritz from Southampton with Flybe, in only 1 1/2 hours. When you land, you can get straight into the holiday mood as the airport is only a couple of miles away from the town centre. Chronoplus operate the bus services which run from the terminal to the town which will only cost you €1 and take 20 minutes. Alternatively, there are taxis available which will take you to exactly where you need to be.
