Villa Ederra is the perfect getaway for the most discerning travellers. Modern, classy, charming and funky, Villa Ederra invites to experience the Basque country in style. Character and space abound in this glorious five bedroom villa of 240 square meters in which many modern features complement tasteful soft furnishings to enhance the feeling of warmth and comfort throughout. The villa has been specifically designed to be a welcoming home for families, providing plentiful open spaces for kids to play in, yet at the same time it offers a stylish and elegant level of comfort.

Perched on a quiet and arboreous hillside, ideally located in Biarritz, the villa is only 800m from one of the most famous beaches in Biarritz and some of the most popular places such as the famous restaurant La Plancha and the Blue Cargo. Even though everything is close, you feel like above it all, hidden in your own private paradise. Villa Ederra offers plenty of room for privacy and comfortably sleeps up to 10 guests in its five bedrooms on three floors. Deluxe en-suite bathrooms in two of the bedrooms and proper balconies with views of the city allow you to retreat into your own world whenever you feel like. The other three bedrooms downstairs are equally intimate with only the highest quality linen, furniture and interior design. Outside, the large decking terrace with the heated 6x2m swimming pool is the perfect spot for enjoying a relaxing afternoon or a sundowner in the evenings. Family holidays, group of friend gathering or a romantic escape -whatever you are looking for Villa Ederra is the perfect choice.

In addition, the stunning Centre International d’Entraînement d’Ilbarritz with its 5 golf schools, surrounded by 26 ha of greenery offers a breath taking 360° panoramic view of the ocean. The mild climate allows you to play golf all the year round.
  • Surfing – Biarritz is the historic surfing capital of Europe. From April to November, 10 surfing schools welcome beginners or experienced surfers alike, for a few hours of tuition or several days.
  • Tennis: The Biarritz Olympique Tennis features 14 public courts, including 4 indoor and 3 lit at night.
  • Horse Riding: The Club Hippique in Biarritz, right next to the ocean, will help you to discover, enjoy and perfect your equestrian activities, at both beginners’ and competitive levels.
  • Shopping: Biarritz is an elegant town and likes good food. It has a love affair with chic shop windows and trendy boutiques: clothes, shoes and accessories, jewellery, Basque household linen, antiques, delicatessens or fine chocolates …The streets are ideal for leisurely window shopping, from the place Clémenceau to the Port Vieux, from Les Halles to the Saint Charles quarter – but that special find may equally await you in Saint Martin or the area around la Négresse. So put on your “espadrilles” and wander about in Biarritz. Every little corner may hide that special treasure you’d love to take away!
  • Nightlife (Casino Barriere, night clubs, bars…)
  • Basque Pelota: Basque Pelota is a court sport played with a racket hitting a ball against a wall, out of the opponents' reach. It is therefore sometimes compared to squash. There are more than 20 variations of the game which stirs the heart of every Basque. The most popular, la Pala, is played against the « fronton», but the most spectacular version remains la Cesta punta which can be watched in the surroundings of the Jaï-Alaï, during the tournament of the Gant d’or/golden Glove in the summer. Beginners can try it for themselves.
  • Musée Historique de Biarritz: Discover the town’s history.
  • Visit the charming Imperial Chapel
  • Climb the 248 steps of the Lighthouse
  • Immerse yourself in the oriental culture of the Musée Asiatica.
  • If you’re a chocolate lover, submit to the temptations of the « Planète Musée du chocolat ».
  • Musée de la Mer Aquarium (Special Internet offers), now one of the biggest aquariums in France with its fifty tanks and several thousand species.

Currency Information

The official currency is the Euro (€). Coins are available in 1 cent, 2 cent, 5 cent, 10 cent, 20 cent, 50, cent , €1 & €2 denominations. Notes are available in €5, €10, €20, €50, €100, €200, €500 denominations.

Money Matters

Travellers cheques are widely accepted for exchange or purchase in major cities, but in more rural areas, visit a bank to exchange them for Euros. Major credit cards are widely accepted here (though a limited number of merchants have American Express accounts) and ATM access is widespread. Exchange currency only at authorized outlets such as banks and hotels, and exchange only what you think you will spend in-country. Coins cannot be reconverted on departure. Save all receipts from any currency exchange transaction. You may be asked to produce them when you exit the country, and they are required if you intend to reconvert local currency.

Tipping Suggestions

Tips in restaurants are usually added on at 10/15 % of the bill. However, it is often a subject of controversy whether this amount actually goes to the waiter or not, therefore it is your choice whether to tip more.

Arrival & Departure Formalities

Travel documents are your responsibility. In general you should have:

  • A signed, valid passport that will remain valid for at least 6 months beyond the completion of your trip. Your passport must have enough blank pages (excluding amendment pages) available for entry and exit stamps issued when entering and exiting immigration points.
  • Visas are required for certain nationalities and you are strongly advised to check your status allowing plenty of time for visa application.
