La Cabane de Bonheur is just under 3km from the heart of Biarritz, in a residential area south of the town, in a hillside location. There is a bakery about a twenty-minute walk away towards the centre of Biarritz as well as a supermarket a little further for any groceries you may need. It is only a short walk or drive to the Milady beach (800m), popular with the locals for its surfing, with a promenade to stroll along and a car park. Energetic walkers can continue to walk alongside the sea to Ilbarritz beach. You may prefer to practise your swing on the renowned golf course at Ilbarritz, next to the beach.x000D
If you want a break from the beach, the City of the Ocean Museum offers the visitor highly immersive experiences including cinematic spectaculars and is a short walk or drive from the villa, as is the Equestrian Club of Biarritz.
If you decide to leave the car at home the local shuttle bus in the summer will take you to the heart of beautiful Biarritz. The resort dates back to the mid-19th century when the aristocracy built their summer residences along this part of the coast, including the well-known Hotel du Palais, built by the wife of Napoleon III.
The most famous beach, La Grande Plage, is in the heart of Biarritz but there are other beaches around the town such as Plage de la Cote des Basques, which has become a favourite for surfers. Indeed, Biarritz has become a surfing mecca with visitors from all over the world attracted to the 6km of Biarritz coastline and beyond. There are plenty of surfing schools for abilities and all ages and Oliver Travel’s guests can arrange surf coaching or just equipment hire during their stay.
You will find some wonderful restaurants in the Port des Pecheurs, the former fishing port, where you will find fresh seafood.

For a change of scene, head to Bayonne (10km) where you can walk around the narrow streets admiring the beautiful and historic architecture or walk along the river front. Explore the beaches to the north with their wide, sandy stretches, some surrounded by grassland and forests, others backed by cliffs and some with beautiful promenades for walkers and cyclists.
Other coastal areas to visit include the picturesque town of Ciboure (17km) to the south where Matisse once lived and the lively resort of Saint-Jean-de-Luz with a great sandy beach and plenty of family-friendly activities as well as an abundance of golf courses and lovely walks along the surrounding coastline and hills.
There are also some idyllic Basque villages inland to explore such as two of France’s Plus Beaux Villages; pretty Ainhoa (25km) and Sare (24km), where you can take the old wooden train up to the summit of La Rhune, one of the most dominant peaks of the Pyrénées, where there are some restaurants with incredible views as well as hiking opportunities.
