The Destination & Culture
We will be settling down amid the quiet pine forest in the sweet little surfside town of Labenne. Overlooking the Atlantic and a short hop, skip and a jump from the glittered hub of Biarritz as well as the French surf capital of Hossegor, the area has no shortage of waves, walks, and wanderings. One of the most peaceful spots along the entire southwest coastline and ideally located between the Basque country to the south and the natural beauty of the Landes to the north. We believe Labenne will be the perfect base for our meticulously curated french surf and spiritual holiday.
Just a short five kilometer bike ride through the forest is the famous surf towns of Hossegor and Capbreton. With its California vibes and picture perfect beachbreaks, this is one of my personal favorite surf spots for longboarders and shortboarders. Grab a coffee, an ice cream, a crepe, or a croissant and enjoy the chilled out atmosphere of the Landes coast.
To the South, Biarritz has been a favorite beach getaway since the days of Napoleon III in the mid 19th century and it still draws a crowd of sun seeking beach goers. Half ritzy coastal resort town and half summer surfers’ hang out, Biarritz and its surroundings have a bit of everything for everyone. The area is lined with elegant villas, heritage listed residences, quintessential coffee and surf shops, making it one of the most culturally rich surf destinations in the world.
