Hot Spot Swap - The French Riviera Vs Biarritz

Updated: Feb 14

For decades The French Riviera has been a playground for the rich and famous,

with travellers arriving en masse to soak up the European summer. 

Think Bond, James Bond.

The French Riviera

The French Riviera is known for its swanky beach clubs,

top tier restaurants and fast cars, The perfect place to do some serious people watching and star spotting, with no real rival, until now.


Back in style and poised to knock The French Riviera of it’s perch is Biarritz.

The seaside resort on the Basque coast has long been a pit stop for avid surfers, keen to test their skills on the Atlantic waves.

The tiny town has begun attracting a new crew, of jet setters and adventurers, keen to immerse themselves in Biarritz’s beautiful beaches, swanky boutiques and sensational Basque seafood.
