Biarritz is a glamorous seaside resort in South-West France, near to the Spanish border. Its glamour is well-known and was a favourite of the European elite - including Napoleon Bonaparte and his wife, Eugénie. The town benefits from warm weather for much of the year and it has become a popular destination for surfers as some of the best waves in Europe are found here. Car hire from Biarritz Airport is straightforward and allows you the quickest access to the town and its coastline, as well as enabling you to explore the French Basque region as a whole.
While Biarritz is a relatively small town with a population of just over 25,000, it carries a sense of history and elegance that defies its size. The Hotel du Palais or Eugénie Palace which was built by Napoleon's wife on the Biarritz shoreline is worth visiting, as is the Museum of the Sea with its variety of sea life including sharks. The beach itself is the obvious main attraction of the town which brings surfers from all over the world every year to test the waves as well as to compete in competitions. Rent a car from Biarritz Airport and you will be close to the town and its amenities. However you spend your time in Biarritz it is sure to be a good time.
