Close to the city centre, Côte des Basques and Les Halles is our house, with five delicately renovated apartments. The apartments span from small studios to multi-floor apartments all offering Scandinavian design, functionality and a feeling of surf. The beach is a short stroll walk away from the house and in the area you find several restaurants and Les 100 Marches, a lovely open bar with a fantastic view of the ocean. Our apartments are available for your holiday both in summer and winter time.

The vibrant and charming little French Atlantic coast town Biarritz, is considered by many as Europe’s surf home. Surfing came to Europe via Biarritz through a Hollywood production in 1956 and currently both beginners and pros surf the waves all year round.
However, Biarritz is not just surfing. The town has a history dating back to the 12th century and as part of the Basque country is has a distinct culture. Biarritz has managed to preserve its historic charm mixed with a focus on beach and surf. On the streets you meet both surfing vagabonds from all over the world as well as chic Parisians in designer clothing and French elderly men in berets.
All this, together with a rich cafe, restaurant and club scene, and proximity to both Spain and Bordeaux makes it to us the perfect holiday destination to give the surf dream a chance.
We like Biarritz to such an extent that we decided to buy us an early twentieth century house here. We call it Surfhouse Biarritz and we would be delighted if you would like to stay in one of our five apartments.
All apartments were completely renovated during 2011-12 and designed to create smart and functional accommodation, suitable for holidays and surfing. It has been a long journey to realize the dream, but now we are really excited about the result.
The decor is Scandinavian-inspired and designed with the environment in mind, both through additional energy conservation measures and materials. A future sustainable world is second nature to us and we will continue working in that direction.
The house is ideally situated 300 meters from the Côte des Basques and it takes about 10 minutes to walk to the town center.
