Private guided tour of Biarritz

You will start your tour at the Esplanade of the Casino de Biarritz and discover the exceptional geographical location of this city between the heathlands of Les Landes and the foothills of the Pyrenees.

Interactively and playfully, your guide will evoke the typical Basque architecture with its beautiful house overlooking the coast.

You will pass by the Old Port and enjoy a fantastic panoramic view from the “Rock of the Virgin” over the coast, the Basque mountains, and the wide sandy beaches.

Boasting more than 15,000 visitors a year, the Golf de Biarritz ranks among the most prestigious golf courses in Europe. It enjoys a reputation as a technical and authentic course, as well as having the precious asset of being located at the heart of the radiant hub of Biarritz.

The Golf de Biarritz le Phare spreads on 34 hectares.

Gastronomic dinner at the Rotonde
Enjoy a gastronomic dinner at the Rotonde, the hotel’s restaurant. Immerse yourself in the heart of the legendary La Rotonde dining room, overlooking the ocean in an exceptional setting.
The restaurant offers delicate, gourmet, seasonal cuisine, combining classic French cuisine with regional produce.

Day 3: Biarritz - Bidart - Saint Jean de Luz - Fontarrabie - Biarritz

Full-day private guided driving tour in the Basque Coast

Your journey starts in Biarritz with a stunning view of the “côte des basques” beach, the birthplace of surfing in France.

Your driver guide will drive down to the quintessential Basque village of Bidart, with its charming church, town hall, and traditional architectural details. Enjoy the coastal panoramas as your guide unveils the secrets of Basque social life and heritage.

Next, wander a scenic hilltop path overlooking the bay of Saint Jean de Luz, with panoramic vistas that will take your breath away. Alternatively, snap pictures at an easy-access viewpoint.

Your next stop is the town center of Saint Jean de Luz. Explore the vibrant beach, pedestrian-friendly shopping streets, charming fishing port, and 17th-century shipowners’ houses of Saint Jean de Luz brought to life with tales of whaling, wealthy sailors, privateers, and more.

Your final stop takes you across the border to charming Fontarrabie in Spain, a medieval fortified town rich in history, home to Charles V’s castle, rolling vineyards, and a fishermen’s quarter with famous Pintxos (Basque tapas) bars.


Day 4: Biarritz - Eugénie-les-Bains

Private Helicopter flight from Biarritz to your hotel in the heart of the Landes region

Enjoy a private ride from Biarritz to your hotel at les Prés d’Eugénie.

Dinner at La Ferme aux Grives

A lively Gascony atmosphere, warm service, recipes emblematic of the local terroir and a beautiful kitchen garden… so many reasons why La Ferme aux Grives is a veritable institution.

The cuisine is sometimes rustic, sometimes bourgeois, and always seasoned with a hint of mischief, Michel Guérard’s mischievous trademark.


Day 5: Eugénie-les-Bains

 Enjoy a relaxing day at your hotel, making the most of your day

Lunch at the hotel

Imagine … a cuisine that’s as delicious as it is “healthy”, and respectful of nature.
A cuisine open to the flavors of the great French tradition as well as to exotic charms. Like a surprise, you’ll discover a new cuisine at every meal.

Spa day

Take advantage of the hotel Spa with an aromatic body massage (20 minutes), a course of 4 thermal treatments and a Garden infusion by the fire.

Dinner at the Michelin-star restaurant Michel Guérard ***

Michel Guérard plays a mischievous repertoire combining great French tradition, naturalness, poetry and creativity. Three stars have crowned the chef and the restaurant for 45 years.

Young Vielle-Tursan Pigeon “en Bécasse”, Lobster “Tourne-Feu”, Diaphanous Dim sum “sous la mousse”, Asparagus “Reine des Landes”, Foie gras lacquered over embers, Entremets “Nuage” du Marquis de Béchamel … so many sweet temptations to taste a Naturaliste cuisine, born on the embers of their fireplace.
