We recently stayed at the Villa L'Arche hotel (3 stars) in Bidart, just outside Biarritz. The hotel itself was lovely. More like a very large house with a lovely dining room/lounge area. All bedrooms have sea views. Our room was great, leading out onto a terrace which lead out into the garden. The bathroom was huge and brand new. Excellent a la carte breakfast - eggs and bacon too, which is rare to find in France. The hotel gardens are very simple but lovely - great sweeping lawns and big wooden chairs overlooking the ocean. The garden steps lead down directly onto Bidart beach which is a nice, quiet beach with an excellent seafood restaurant: La Tantina de la Playa. Bidart beach is also quite good for surfing. The village of Bidart is small, but a lovely typically Basque village and just a couple of minutes outside Biarritz which is a fantastic town. Loads of great shops, excellent restaurants and really good surfing beaches. We go every summer, but this was our first visit to the Villa L'Arche which we'd found in a Charming Hotels guidbook.
