Biarritz : Michelin's recommendations
The society resort of Biarritz is full of princely villas, casinos and Art Deco buildings, examples of the glittering architecture that attests to its exalted past. But this former whaling town isn’t stuck in the past, as you can see from the urban constructions by Jean-Michel Wilmotte, the often daring contemporary buildings, the intense cultural life here, where dance enjoys the lion’s share, and its sports activities, especially surfers defying the waves and rugby men from the Biarritz Olympique club.
