Set on the coast of French Basque country, Biarritz is at the centre of France's Rugby heartland. A great touring destination for teams looking to test themselves against the best while enjoying the beach-side lifestyle!
Situated in the very southwest of France, boarding Spain, the holiday destination of Biarritz became famous in the 19th century when Empress Eugenie, or Mrs Napoleon, fell in love with this part of the Basque country and built a Palace on the beach and a centre with natural springs at Eugenie les Bains. However Biarritz now no longer serves royalty and welcomes tourists from all over the world to experience it's vibrant community and top class beaches.
Biarritz is a town steeped in culture and fun activities. Boasting a thriving and popular surf scene as well as the Pyrenees mountain range that is a must for those thrill seekers and cal explorers alike. Seafood and local dishes that can only be found in this region are sensational also.
Rugby in both Southern France and the Basque country is an utter religion. Home games are passionately supported with the visiting team likened to that of an invading force but welcomed with open arms afterwards in typical rugby fashion. Biarritz Olympique maybe in French Pro D2 but that doesn't stop the Basque folk supporting their local club!
