Hotels in Biarritz, France - your base to discover the city.
Located in the French Basque country and situated on the Bay of Biscay, Biarritz is known today for having some of Europe's best beaches. But, before it became a surfer's paradise, the resort made its fortune from whaling and attracted Napoleon III in the 18th century, who turned Biarritz into a society destination.
The best Biarritz activities can be enjoyed outdoors – swimming, surfing, and sunbathing beneath a striped beach parasol. On cloudy days, visit the Russian Orthodox church with its blue dome, explore the mouthwatering Musée du Chocolat, and gamble at the grand 1901 casino.
Booking accommodation in Biarritz could mean staying in Napoleon's former summer residence, or in one of the city's cheaper alternatives.
And located just 18 kilometres from the Spanish border, you can use car rental services in Biarritz to explore northern Spain and nearby fishing villages.
