Seasonal rentals: increasing demand for this summer

Seasonal rentals: between reservations and bans

The Basque Country is a region whose quality of life is recognized, between sea, mountains, countryside, and Spain whose customers appreciate gastronomy, golf, surfing and many other occupations. Our region is attracting more and more holidaymakers in search of authenticity. Our guests enjoy a taste of local life while enjoying the advantages that a 5 star hotel can offer while retaining the privacy of an exceptional property.

The most popular periods are July and August, but the region offers its best assets in the off-season, when the weather is generally mild and the crowds are smaller.


Many city dwellers came to spend this period of confinement in their second homes. To avoid abuse at this special moment when the general government order is: "Do not move", the prefecture of the Pyrénées Atlantiques had published a prefectural decree prohibiting the opening to the public of hotels as well as the seasonal rentals of furnished tourist accommodation. This ban has just been extended until May 11, when the lockdown is announced. This ban is valid for all the coastal municipalities of the Basque Coast, from Anglet to Hendaye via Biarritz, Bidart, Guéthary, Saint Jean de Luz, Ciboure and Urrugne. The city of Bayonne is also concerned.


Meanwhile, for a few days we have observed impressive demand from tenants hoping to come and rent a beautiful villa on the Basque Coast, which should be possible this summer. The demand is all the stronger as the possibilities of traveling abroad this summer seem compromised ... which could quickly lead to a shortage of rental properties for this summer in our beautiful region of the Basque Country, which is already usually in high demand.


We offer you exceptional vacation spots: magnificent inland properties with mountain views, beautiful family houses with swimming pools on the Basque coast, as well as apartments with contemporary decor enjoying a bird's eye view of the sea. 'Atlantic Ocean.
