What makes Villa Silhouette a great holiday rental
Villa Silhouette is a high-spec 6 bedroom villa in a secluded location just a short drive from Biarritz's famous beaches and town centre. The outside areas - several terraces, large private grounds, lovely heated pool - are as good as the high-end, still homely, interior. This includes a magnificent basement home cinema & wine cellar area. Biarritz offers excellent restaurants, shopping and, of course, fantastic beaches. The Pyrenees, historic Basque villages, even San Sebastian, are in easy reach.
Anything to watch out for?
The autoroute is partly visible from the house and vaguely audible (400m distance).
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!
A high-specification, homely holiday villa in large secluded grounds
Constructed by a well-known regional architect Villa Silhouette is situated on the upper hills of Biarritz, in a desirable residential neighborhood of the basque capital, where you can cross high level sportsmen, businessmen and other stars of the little and big screen.
The villa is accessed via electric gates at the end of a private 130m long cobbled drive, with outdoor parking for 3-4 cars, plus underground garage.
A covered porch opens into the hallway, with cloakroom and WC. Ahead is the upper living room, and to the right the kitchen, both offering lovely views and access to the outside terrace, so with lots of natural light.
The kitchen is a good size, fully equipped with high quality appliances. Sliding doors open on to a covered area of terrace which extends along the house.
The 100m2 living area is tastefully furnished with two 2-3 seater sofas, glass dining table & chairs, gorgeous dresser, and includes a wood-burning stove, two sets of sliding doors opening on to the terrace and outdoor dining table & chairs. A further area of the living room includes a picture window overlooking the woods, smart chaise longue, and an additional comfortable sitting area.
At the rear off a corridor around an inner courtyard are three bedrooms - two double bedrooms (both 160cm x 200cm) each with ensuite bathroom, plus a third, single, bedroom.
Upstairs from the entrance hall is the master room (180cm x 200cm double bed), a shower room with double sink, and a separate toilet. Patio doors open from the bedrooms onto a gorgeous upper covered balcony with stone balustrade overlooking the terrace and the Pyrenees as backdrop. Garden salon furniture make this a charming spot for reading, breakfast or just taking in the views.
Downstairs at garden/basement level is the stunning contemporary Wine Cellar, a beautiful red-neon lit corner, home to dozens of fine bottles on the walls, and open to the rest of the room via a half-moon shaped bar for cocktails. A comfortable home cinema lounge, wall & projector, and pool table, make this a fantastic room for the evenings.
There are two further bedrooms at this level: double bedroom (160cm x 200cm), another with bunk beds (and room for a further double bed if needed), both sharing a bathroom with bath tub, massage shower and toilet.
Spa Room with 6 person hot tub and massage table. Private in-home massages can be arranged.

Villa Silhouette is located off a small lane in a leafy residential area - strange to think the bustle and glamour of Biarritz are so close. It's just 3 kms to a selection of local shops in Arbonne; Biarritz centre is a 10 minute drive. The airport, train station and autoroute are all easily accessible.
