Spacious, artist’s cottage next to beach in Bidart
A unique property which we love for its shabby-chic feel and proximity to the best beaches.
A perfect find for up to 6 guests, this little gem set back from Ilbarritz beach and its restaurants and surf, offers 2 double bedrooms and a smaller single room with two bathrooms, a bohemian-style kitchen and sitting room in approximately 150m2 of living space. The highlight though of this hidden cottage is the funky design of the back of the house which is a wall of glasses looking out to a garden of banana and palm trees which offer welcome shade in the summer months. There are plenty of areas to eat in the shade and enjoy the peace and quiet. There is private parking at the front of the house.
The owners who are artists and antique dealers have added a distinctly artistic feel to this atypical property and it is certainly quirky ! The front of the cottage looks like just that and then you walk into the sitting room and you are faced with vast windows overlooking a mini jungle of lush vegetation with nooks and crannies for sheltering from the mid summer heat. We think it is a great place and the perfect secret, holiday haven for couples or young families, being so close to beaches and restaurants and Biarritz.
Why we like it
A unique property which we love for its shabby-chic feel and huge glass walls to the back, bringing the lush vegetation of its secluded garden, into the cottage. The master bedroom feels like you are sleeping in a treehouse ! We also love the peace and quiet yet proximity to some fabulous beaches by foot.
