“Biarritz, this year's beacon travel destination!
This pearl of the Atlantic now surfs on a wave of effervescent youth. Dust cover the ghosts of Napoleon III and Eugenia, put away the Bouncing Basque, that cliché of tennis fame, Biarritz offers itself, and offers us, the tonic blast of a region of unselfconscious luxury, the slightest hint of glam rock ...
Because here in this last bastion of the South West bordering Spain and jostling with San Sebastian, the mood is festive with that colourful brand of celebration that the Basques know how to sing and dance so well the whole year long!
So long a playground, a promised land for golfers, surfers, Basque Pelota and rugby players, and other devotees of sea water spa therapy, health, fitness and relaxation.
Its mild climate and the beauty of its coastline, its curved inlets, punctuated by rocky outcrops, and the great events that it hosts, make Biarritz a destination of enchantment at any time of year.”
