It is hard not to love this converted traditional Basque house set in around 1.25 hectares (around 3 acres) of grounds just over a mile from the Grande Plage in downtown Biarritz. Views over the Atlantic coast and surrounding countryside, a lovely snug bar, marble bathrooms, crystal chandeliers—this is Baroque-style luxury delivered with a tongue-in-cheek charm. You can even indulge in a free Rolls Royce transfer from the airport.
