If you're visiting our Campanile hotels in Biarritz for a weekend, you'll have the opportunity to wander around downtown Biarritz full of unique architectural treasures like the Villa Eugénie and the Château Boulard. Take a moment to admire the famous Virgin’s rock, a real emblem of the city. This pierced rock was designed for a port, but it was finally ornamented with a Virgin statue purchased at the Franco-Spanish exhibition in Bayonne in 1865. Why not make the most of your trip with a walk around the port and admire the luxury boats that anchor in Biarritz?
Spending a week in Biarritz means opting for relaxation and recreation. The more sporty can choose to go sea-fishing, surf the waves, cycle to explore the surroundings, try waterskiing or even windsurfing. There are also many cultural activities in Biarritz as it’s a city which is home to many museums: the Museum of Chocolate, the Oriental Art Museum, or the historical museum of Biarritz Eugénie. Finally, you can indulge in the best local food in the seafront restaurants, most of which enjoy a stunning view over the harbor and ocean.
There is no lack of activities for families: for example, you can set off with the children to explore Biarritz lighthouse to observe the ocean from its top. Just steps from the city center, you can easily get to Lake Marion, the perfect setting for a family picnic. Don’t miss Biarritz Aquarium for an original, educational discovery of the underwater life of the area around Biarritz. Finally, make a stopover in Bayonne, which is just a 20-minute drive from Biarritz. Our Campanile hotels will be able to welcome you during your visit.
