Camping in Biarritz
Ever since the 1850s, when Napoleon the third spent a holiday here with his wife the Empress Eugénie, Biarritz has welcomed visitors from all over the continent; helping to make this town the chic beach resort it is today. Could going camping in Biarritz be your perfect family holiday for this year?
Located in the Basque region on the south west coast of France, to the south of Biarritz, just 30 minutes away, is the Spanish border and the majestic Pyrenees, and to the north the great forest of Landes and the historic cities of Bayonne and Bordeaux. It is well known that the rich and famous prefer Biarritz to the Cote d’Azur; it has as many hours of sunshine, fantastic beaches, fewer crowds and its fair share of glitz; with top restaurants, boutiques, food shops and casinos.
Biarritz’s beaches include the Grande Plage, the most fashionable; the Plage de la Côte des Basques, a surfer’s paradise; and the beach by the old harbour, popular with locals. Amongst other attractions to highlight include, the nationally important Musée de l’Art Oriental, on rue Guy-Petit, has more than a thousand works of art; the Musée de la Mer, where you’ll find an aquarium, shark tank, and seals; and for those with a sweet-tooth, the Musée du Chocolat, on avenue Beaurivage, offers tastings.
Our 5-star Le Vieux Port campsite in Biarritz is next to a beautiful sandy beach, offers top facilities including a wellbeing & spa centre and children’s entertainment. And with our excellent mobile home accommodation it is the perfect location for a family camping holiday.
This area of France is served well with airports and ports, and you won’t find it difficult to travel here from the UK. Book your camping in Biarritz family break by calling us on 0161 962 7403.
Incidently, Napoleon and the Empress loved Biarritz so much that Napoleon had a Villa built for them.
