The Details...

A century ago, this inimitable, six-sleeper apartment formed part of a luxury hotel. As the subject of a stunning conversion that oozes cool sophistication, the property retains its former grandeur and sea views. At the vibrant heart of Biarritz’s charming, cosmopolitan centre, Showroom enjoys a privileged location strides from the beach.

Clues to the apartments rich history emerge in Basque exterior details and the open plan living/dining area’s scrolled ceilings. The large windows (with automatic shutters), French doors and small balcony, bathe the expansive living space - once the hotel’s dining room - in glorious natural light. From the balcony, enjoy views of the Grande Plage (a sandy city beach, flanked by rocks) and decadent Hôtel du Palais (former summer mansion of Napoleon III) barely metres away. Artwork from local artists lines the walls and chic furnishings showcase a contemporary-eclectic aesthetic that is unpretentious and relaxing.

Of the three luxurious double bedrooms, each with spacious closets, the master enjoys en suite facilities and flat screen TV; the two peaceful guest rooms conjoin an entertainment area replete with TV and game console. There are also two bathrooms with sumptuous Italian showers, and another toilet adjoining the hall. With stylish, dark wood units, stainless steel fittings and separate dining table, the well-equipped kitchen is the perfect place to enjoy a meal before exploring the local nightlife - introduce the bleary eyed to the kitchen’s coffee machine and reserve a spot by the breakfast bar the morning after. This high-end property also includes exclusive access to an on-call property manager and private parking (plus complimentary surfboard).

Considered the European Mecca for surfing, Biarritz has outstanding sports facilities; head to nearby Cote des Basques, birthplace of Europe’s surfing scene, or Le Phare for a round of golf. For spectacular views, climb the 248 steps to the Lighthouse – remembering to bring your camera! Indulge in a massage, try local delicacies or explore Biarritz’ bar scene; shops, restaurants, Spa and Casino are all within alluring proximity. With easy access to Bayonne, the Pyrenees and Spanish border towns, add a daytrip to your burgeoning list of activities.
