Forget the Mediterranean coast, forget the slopes of Courchevel, the Francophile journalist Anthony Peregrine has spoken; Biarritz has the accolade "the classiest resort in France". 

We've always rated Biarritz as a fantastic destination for a holiday. Its unique location offers easy access to the beach and mountains, whilst the city itself is characterised by the best of French sophistication and culture. This enviable combination of beach and city mean it's no surprise that Biarritz has traditionally been popular with Europe's elite and continues to attract celebrities to this day.

If you would like a taste of the jet-set lifestyle, but don't have access to your own plane, British Airways havetwice-weekly flights from Heathrow direct to Biarritz - and there are plenty of other flight options with other carriers too.

Biarritz, France, will host the 2017 ISA World Surfing Games, bringing the competition to Europe for the first time since 2008.  The ISA World Surfing Games are taking place from 20th - 28th May 2017 and promise to be bigger and better than ever!
