Perched along the Atlantic coast of Southwest
near the Spanish border, this charmingly beautiful
city feels more like a small town, albeit one where royalty once
found respite from the duties of their courts.
Today, Biarritz still beckons the well-to-do, but also surfers,
golfers, and meeting and incentive groups looking for a location
where luxury commingles comfortably with the warmth of the town’s
residents. Hotels include the stunning 132-room, 22- suite Hôtel du
Palais and the 150-room Radisson SAS. Three conference venues also
are available for larger gatherings.
Group activities include a Basque evening in a nearby village;
a road rallye through the countryside in vintage CV2s; and lunch at
the local market, where the oysters, fresh-plucked from the sea,
are a Sunday staple. Among the DMCs serving the area are Pays
Basque Privilège and Allied Travel France.
