My wife and I stayed at Xavier's apartment in Biarritz for 3 nights. He is very nice to deal with and his English is great. The apartment is very modern and has all amenities you will need to make your stay in Biarritz a great one.
When we arrived in Biarritz, Xavier met us right away and let us know that the apartment we had reserved had problems with the water heater, so he had us stay one block away in a larger apartment of his at no extra cost.
The apartment is in a great location within walking distance to restaurants, the ocean, supermarkets, shopping, patisseries and pharmacies--all you need.
We did have a car (although we didn't need it) and found free parking very close to the apartment.
Biarritz is a paradise. You will enjoy your stay at Xavier's apartments!
If you are renting a car and will be dropping it off at the train station, get gas in Biarritz before making the short trek to the rental car return and train station. There are no gas stations near the train station to fill up your car.
Firstly our host Xavier was very prompt, friendly and efficient.
The property consists of a bedroom and kichenette on the first floor and a bathroom, clothinhgstorage and bunk bed on the lower floor accessed via a spiral staircase. On the first floor across the landing is a well equipped laundry. It is fully equiped with linen,crockery etc of good quality. the refurbishment has been done tastefully and attractively.
It is a five minute walk from the wonderful food market which we visited every day for coffee, wine or snacks as well as picking up high quality produce for our own meals The entire area is surrounded by small cafes/restaurants serving really excellent local foods and wines.
Another 10 minute walk will get you to the first beach and another 5 to the largest beach of all. We found this an ideal location.
The onley negatives for us were the small shower cubicle with hand-held shower head and a wash basin which seemed to be designed without a plug. But these did not spoil our week's stay, and we would happily return
