The real estate market in Saint Jean de Luz
In Saint Jean de Luz real estate and tourism are the kings. The pretty Basque city in the Pyrénées Atlantiques has fifteen real estate agencies for 12,612 homes. It must be said that with 41% of tenants and 55% of owners, the local market is of great interest, confirmed by the approaches of potential buyers.
Saint Jean de Luz is also home to 44% of second homes, including luxury apartments with sea views and luxury homes in the most popular areas.
Both a flowered city, a seaside resort and a privateer city, it is now labeled City of Art and History. Such advantages fully justify the desire to invest and settle there, as does the large number of real estate agencies. It is useful to know that the average net income per tax household is 25,100 euros. There is a rather balanced socio-professional distribution with 55% of employees, 45% of executives and 35% of retirees.
More than 2/3 of real estate has an area of 40 to 99m2 while 24% exceeds 100m2. The real estate market can be tight with 2% vacant homes, but this proportion varies from neighborhood to neighborhood. Finally, the price per m2 can undergo big variations depending on the location, with the Saint Jean de Luz Saint Barbe district as the highlight. For example, the current average price is higher for apartments than for villas.
Living in Saint Jean de Luz
While crossing the city, the charm and the authenticity of Donibane Lohizune (St jean de luz in Basque) jump to the eyes. In the surroundings of the historic center and its pedestrian streets, near Boulevard Thiers, stroll along the Jacques Thibaud promenade and sit on the terrace or on a balcony upstairs in one of the local restaurants to admire Lafitenia beach. The city also sports another of the most beautiful views of the Basque coast since the bay of Saint-Jean-de-Luz, also called the bay of Socoa, is one of the few sheltered harbors in France. But the one that should not be missed is the panoramic view of the Basque Country from the Rhune mountain, a few kilometers away. Its little train that accompanies you to the summit is also one of the most visited tourist sites in the South West and France with just under 400,000 visitors each year. In terms of infrastructure, the pedestrian center was recently renovated thanks to a new program launched by the town hall, which also made it possible to park your car in a parking space in the basement in the heart of the city, all over 4 floors with elevator . A popular destination in the Atlantic Pyrenees during the summer, Saint Jean regains its calm out of season while remaining a lively town. It is good to live there all year round.
The Basque history and culture of the Basque Country owe a lot to Saint Jean de Luz. It was in the home of a Luzian shipowner that the very young King Louis XIV was welcomed and lodged for nearly a month, waiting to meet the Infanta of Spain, future Queen of France. It is always a pleasure to visit this house as well as to walk in the old town in the footsteps of Maurice Ravel, to stroll in the botanical garden or simply to walk on the beach of Lafitenia. The town maintains and enhances its cultural and built heritage but also takes care to facilitate daily life. The supply of public transport continues to grow, the pedestrian center has been recently renovated, new housing built and underground parking lots constructed. Saint Jean has many nurseries and schools as well as high schools of a good standard. Sports and leisure facilities are available in each district. The city is full of local shops of all kinds, excellent restaurants, welcoming terraces on the port and we love the covered market and its fish market. Not to mention the incredible panorama over the Basque country offered by the nearby Rhune mountain.
