Ocean View is perched on a low cliff overlooking the beach, with panoramic views of the ocean and the Pyrenees. In the heart of the historic village of Bidart and on the outskirts of Biarritz, the house has direct access to both the beach and the village with its market, cafés and restaurants.

Set in a lawned garden (1,300 square metres) with a heated pool and long dining terrace overlooking the sea below, the house is owned by a leading London hotelier and has been beautifully renovated and finished to the highest specification including great beds and fine linens.

There is a huge open-plan kitchen/dining room overlooking the sea, with a separate sitting room and a galleried mezzanine level where the media room is located.

On the ground floor are two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The second floor has three bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, and then up in the ‘Tower’ is the most spectacular double-vista master bedroom suite.

Glamorous Biarritz is just down the road with a fantastic market, great shops and some wonderful places to eat. A wealth of trendy bars and beach restaurants dot this now very fashionable coastline all within minutes of Bidart.

Neighboring San Sebastian is only a short drive away, with its spectacular food scene; great for an evening of tapas or Michelin-starred dining, or just a spot of shopping.

This is just a selection of some of the villas we represent. We are constantly on the lookout for new properties to add to our portfolio and are always delighted to look for that very special house if you haven’t found what you are looking for. Properties are available throughout the year by arrangement.

So do call, we would love to talk to you.

The Basque coast is the cradle of surfing in Europe, a region rich in surf breaks and surf culture.
