The Aquitaine/Dordogne region
The region is rich with long sandy surf beaches, world class golf courses, pine forests and pretty towns and villages. There are some beautiful historic place to visit such as St Jean de Luz. The Pyrenees can be seen in the distance and they are only a 30 minute drive away.
The weather is beautiful, with mainly clear sunny blue days. The proximity of the sea ensures there is always somewhere to go to cool down. The very warm weather runs from May - September but can be glorious in April and October too. In the winter, it is cold and frosty - the ski areas are about 2 hours drive away in Cauterets and La Mongie.
Restaurants and Bars: All culinary tastes can be catered for in the local area. There are plenty of local restaurants, bars and cafes for you to sample. There are several cafes in St Martin de Hinx and a wide selection of restaurants in Hossegor. There is a very good, traditional restaurant, Auberge D'Ugne, in a neighbouring village and there is a wonderful pizzeria in Saubrigues (5km away).
Surfing: Hossegor and the local area of Aquitaine is the surfing capital of Europe and regular Word-Pro events are held along the coast. Surf hire and tuition is available in many nearby towns including Tarnos, Ondres, Anglet, Capbreton and Hossegor.
Beaches: The Atlantic coast of South West France, stretching from the Spanish border right up to Bordeaux, is really just one long sandy beach so you can easily find a spot away from it all. The nearest beaches are at Tarnos, Ondres, Anglet, Capbreton and Hossegor.
Golf: There are many world class golf courses nearby open to non members as well as members.
Spas: For ultimate relaxation and luxury, visit the spa in Biarritz, The Institut Thalassotherapie in the Sofitel Thalassa Miramar Hotel. Treatments include seaweed wraps, seawater jet therapy and hydro-massage.
Mountains: The Pyrenees are just a 45 minute drive away. In the winter you can go snowboarding or ski-ing. It is 2 hours drive to the small resorts of Cauteret and La Mongie. In the Summer, there are beautiful villages to visit such as Espelette, famed for its chilli chocolate factory and Saint Jean Pied-De-Port with its magnificent castle. Bayonne, St Jean de Luz and Guethary are also charming towns to visit with a plentiful supply of restaurants, cafes and shops.
Spain: It is just a 30 minutes drive to the Spanish border. San Sebastian is worth a visit, located just across the Spanish border on the coast (45min drive). The capital of Pays De Basque, San Sebastian is famed for its gastronomic delights. It has a beautiful, traditional town centre and the peninsula and fort between the two main beaches has great views and walking paths.
