  • Brilliant 15m heated private pool - much longer than your average pool
  • Lovely secluded gardens including summer terrace looking over the pool to woodlands beyond - very relaxing!
  • Walk to village amenities including tennis, restaurant & grocery store
  • Short drive to Biarritz & Bidart's stunning beaches
  • Playroom with PS4


We think the space works best of all for one family with space to accommodate grandparents too or an extra friend or two. We put the capacity of the house at 7 people.

This is also a particularly good location for golfing couples / friends - 5 minutes' drive either side of the villa and you will be tee-ing up on a very good golf course (and there's plenty more to choose from in the area). 


  • Toddlers - very good. The gardens are spacious and enclosed with a 'wendy house' plus the pool is heated and covered and features gentle corner steps for little ones
  • Teenagers - the immediate location is quiet but it's so close to teen-friendly Biarritz, plus the villa has wifi, PS4 and the fab pool of course
  • Reduced mobility - the plot is mostly level with a gentle grass slope down to the pool. There is an en-suite bedroom on the ground floor.


The twin beds in Bedroom 3 are best-suited to younger kids.


Biarritz is the most famous resort on France's Atlantic coast. An eclectic and unique combination of sophistication, elegance and surf culture. Magnificent beaches, superb cuisine, golf, spa & leisure, plus plenty of family attractions. We love it! Meanwhile, the surrounding Basque Country is a genuinely distinctive corner of France with its unique architecture, cuisine and language. Enjoy pretty villages amongst rolling countryside, famous seaside resorts such as Biarritz & St Jean de Luz, venture into the Pyrénées mountains and take the short journey to Spain to sample San Sebastian.


Neo-Basque villa in a peaceful & private setting with fabulous 15m swimming pool

An attractive and well-equipped holiday villa ideal for a family wanting easy access to great beaches and a buzzing resort - but who also want a very peaceful retreat.

Accommodation - ground floor:

  • Open-plan living room with access to the front garden / terrace via sliding doors x 2. The corner salon features a wall-mounted TV
  • The living room leads directly to the kitchen and separate laundry room. There is a breakfast table and access directly to the rear terrace, garden and swimming pool
  • Bedroom 1 - 160cm double bed and modern en-suite shower room (shower, hand-basin & WC), French doors access to the front garden

  • Bedroom 3 with double bed 180cm
  • Bedroom 4 with single bed (NB currently showing a small double in the photo gallery)
  • Shower room (shower, WC, basin) shared by bedrooms 3 & 4


The plot is generous with well-planted, private and good size gardens to the front and rear of the villa.

At the front is an area of lawn, plenty big enough for some badminton, boules or to kick a ball around. There's also a play house in the garden and a patio terrace with table and chairs.

The main attraction though is that swimming pool to the rear of the villa! It's rare to find a swimming pool of this size (15m length & heated) especially in a 4 bedroom villa. With its surrounding deck and covered terrace from the kitchen, this is where the majority of holiday hours are going to be spent (not wasted!). Bordering the back gardens is a lovely area of woodland which, with its accompanying birdsong, enhances that feeling of seclusion, despite being so close to bustling Biarritz.

The outside dining terrace to the rear of the villa is partially covered by a pergola and is accessed directly from the kitchen. Put a couple of tuna steaks on the gas plancha and enjoy your surroundings!

Handy pool shower adjacent to the pool. 4 x sun-loungers.

House Rules

No smoking & no pets


Villa Makila enjoys a semi-rural location on the outskirts of Bassussary village, yet it's very close (5 km) to bustling Biarritz. With its verdant, paceful gardens and woodlands bordering the back garden, you will feel relaxed and secluded - and after a busy day at the beach or boutiques of Biarritz, this is a heavenly retreat. A lane and footpath take you directly to the village on foot in 10 minutes and it's a mere 15 minutes by car to the beaches and resorts of La Cote Basque. Bassussary is also conveniently situated to access the airport and the motorway for day-trips further afield (we particularly recommend San Sebastian, the Pyrenees, Bayonne and St Jean de Luz).
