Living in the Lahouze district of Biarritz
If you want to live by the sea, Quartier Lahouze is exactly what you need. Literally located a stone's throw from the ocean, it offers all the advantages you can dream of if you want to buy a property in Biarritz to live there or to install your second home. First of all, its proximity to the most important places in Biarritz: 3 km from the city centre and 6 km from the Grande Plage. In addition, the district borders the sea, which allows you to enjoy many walks along the dunes. Another valuable asset: a large green space next to Avenue des Vagues, which allows you to enjoy the vegetation in the very heart of the district.
Peaceful, offering an ideal balance between urban and natural surroundings, the Lahouze district is inhabited by a majority of retired people. There is a good proportion of second homes, which amount to about a third of all homes (houses and apartments). Two mixed points to consider if you want to buy a property there: a high housing tax (29%) and a property tax that is rather higher than average (39%). Biarritz Bayonne Anglet aerodrome, 1 km away, may also cause noise pollution from time to time.
