Seasonal rentals: Once upon a time on the Basque Coast

There’s a reason the Basque Coast is classed as one of the top international oceanfront destinations in the BARNES Global Property Handbook 2021! From Biarritz to Saint-Jean-de-Luz, its coastline boasts a series of gems steeped in history, culture, gastronomy and sport (in the order of your choice), while its inland region preciously guards an art de vivre and traditions cherished the world over.

Whether you’re into golf, rugby, surfing or all three, you can bet there’s something for you among these properties listed for rent by Philippe Thomine-Desmazures and the entire BARNES Côte basque team. But beware, once you’ve tasted the charms of the region, they say you’ll be hooked for life… (*)

Let’s start with this architectural architectural wonder in Anglet, just minutes from the Chiberta golf course and Cavaliers beach. The photos speak for themselves - it doesn't get more contemporary than this 3,767 sq ft wood-clad villa.

We can't resist the patio doors leading from its 5 bedrooms onto the terrace, garden and pool. From €1,000 per night.

Now to Bayonne for a change of scenery with  Bellefontaine, a stunning 18th century property adjoining the 250 acres of the ornithological observatory of the Plaine d'Ansot, on the banks of the Nive.

With its 8 bedrooms, its 6,458 sq ft, its wooded grounds, its tennis court and its heated pool, something tells us that family holidays will be the stuff memories are made of. From €643 per night.

Talking of surfing earlier, let’s continue our tour with this custom house overlooking the Plage des 100 Marches beach. Designed by a surfer, for surfers, it is equipped with a host of revolutionary gadgets like a code system that means you don't need to worry about where to carry a key!

And if you’re not (yet) a surfing fan, the view of the ocean and La Rhune from the terrace should be enough to persuade you that the weeks spent here are unlike any others elsewhere.  From €543 per night.

Also in Bidart is this  cette neo-basque villa that can accommodate 12 people at the heart of a 3-acre parkland.  Away from the hustle and bustle of the coast, its 5,920 sq ft span three levels and make for the ideal base camp from which to explore the charms of the region.

One thing’s for sure, you’ll never tire of breakfast on the terrace, surrounded by greenery. From €857 per night.

And how could you leave the Basque Coast without a trip to Hossegor and this recently built villa in the pine forest?

It may well be ideally located between the lake and the ocean, but you’ll have a hard time leaving its comforts once you’re settled in. Perhaps it’s the layout of the 6 bedrooms on different levels surrounding the pool? Or the omnipresent vegetation? Whatever it is, let the vacation begin! From €866 per night.
