Additional House Info


House Rules

No smoking indoors, and no pets please.


Villa d'Ilbarritz is set in a unique, beautiful location overlooking a peaceful, protected nature reserve and just  15 minutes' walk to the local beaches of Il'barritz (and restaurants too). The location is at the end of a cul-de-sac not tarmaced) and therefore offers guests seclusion and privacy. It is more-or-less equidistant between the charming Basque village of Bidart and the bustling resort of Biarritz. Both are just a 5 minute drive. A regular bus service runs from the main road into the heart of Biarritz. Also there is a cycle path most of the way into Biarritz centre.

The Local Area

Around IlBarritz
Golfers will appreciate the local course - not the longest but a good challenge and the training facilities are excellent. The clubhouse does a fine lunch too! There's a few resturants to choose from, a wonderful stretch of sandy beach with a surf academy, plus local tennis and horse-riding centre.

After the wilderness years of the 1980s, this town is back in fashion. Celebrities and sports stars are flooding back to live in the region, turning their back on the Côte d'Azur. Biarritz is an eclectic place; it somehow manages to mix an affluent elderly population with a steady flow of well-dressed surfers plus a sprinkling of super-rich jetsetters on top. A compact and stylish town, Biarritz really does have something for everyone...famous beaches, museums, fine restaurants, boutiques, casino, golf courses, horse-riding and the south west's famous spa and thalassotherapy centres.

Customer Reviews By Feefo

Review posted on 21 Jul 2018

Service: Feefo Service Rating Product: Feefo Product Rating

Service: We booked for the first time with Alternative Aquitaine this year. Justin was great, really knowledgable about the area and was able to help us pick the right house for 4 adults and 5 kids. The house and area was perfect for us and we had a great holiday. I would definitely use Alternative Aquitaine again.

Product: Villa d’Illbarritz was a lovely villa. A perfect setting in a really tranquil location. I am not giving the villa 5 stars only because we had a problem with flies due to the farm next door. However screen doors would have stopped this - there are screens on all of the windows. The only other negative is the spiky plant on the steps to the pool which we learned to avoid! Aside from these two issues we loved the house and setting which was great with young kids and a larger group.

On 23-Jul-2018 we responded:

Product Comment: Shame we missed out on 5 stars but it's a valid point and we'll speak to the owner about that. And we will have the spiky plant moved! It's a lovely indeed, a perfect, calm 'oasis' yet so close to the beach and bustle of Biarritz.
