The Sunday Times (3/3/13) selects its 6 favourite secret beaches in Europe. There's only 1 mention for France and, yes, you guessed it, it's in Aquitaine. The favoured place is Guethary, a little Basque Country gem nestled discretely between St Jean de Luz and Biarritz, it's three beaches "peppered with families and surfers". We've long since been recommending a visit to Guethary to our clients..."its Basqueness is the clincher. Substantial white family homes trimmed with oxblood woodwork...and the pelota court takes centre stage. Harotzen Costa is the best of the beach restaurants and a sufficiency of bars fuel the festivities at which Basques excel". Our collection of Basque Country holiday rentals include a handful of villa rentals near Guethary such as Villa Senix.
