The most famous resort on France's Atlantic coast, Biarritz is  an eclectic and unique combination of sophistication, elegance and surf culture. Enjoy the magnificent beaches, superb cuisine, golf, spa & leisure, plus plenty of family attractions. We love it! Plus, a similar distance south is the very pretty seaside village of Bidart with its delightful square, restaurants and beaches.


Stylish and charming former 1920's fisherman's cottage with a lovely beach-y ambience

From the outside, Maison Katalina appears relatively unassuming - a pretty cottage in the traditional Basque style. However, this lovely home really comes to live on the inside with its fabulous open-plan living space and modern glass & aluminium extension to the rear.

As such, the house successfully combines the essential modern requirements with a more traditional 'cottage' feel. And at 145m2 it has plenty of space too for a family to spread out.

We also love the beach 'vibe' of the house with its surfboards here and there and the 'fresh' decor evoking holidays at the seaside.

Outside of the summer months, the house is lived in by its owner and it's therefore very well equipped as a holiday rental.

Ground Floor:

Fabulous open-plan living room, light & spacious and featuring:

  • Brand new fitted kitchen, breakfast bar & utility area (direct access to the garden) with all modern appliances including a Nespresso machine
  • Dining space with table for 6
  • Lounge area in the extended section of the house - direct access to the garden

Bedroom 1 - smaller room with attractive wooden floor, 160cm double bed plus ensuite shower / WC.

Bedroom 2 - pretty room with 180cm double bed, doors to the rear garden & front yard, plus ensuite shower / WC.

Upper Floor:

The upper level is given over entirely to the stunning master bedroom suite that feels suspended in mid-air!

  • Bedroom 3 with 180cm double bed
  • Ensuite shower room with WC
  • Dressing area
  • Glass walls on two sides of the bedroom looking out over the back garden

Note the ladder staircase leading to the upper level is unsuitable for younger children.


The highly secluded garden to the rear is kept private and shaded by an exotic canopy of lush banana trees, palms and yuccas. A small terrace and plancha-style BBQ provide an ideal place to relax and cook some local fish or steaks.

Bikes and surfboards can be stored securely in the back garden.

To the front there is parking for two or three cars on the lane right outside the house.
