Free car parks

The city has two free car parks less than 800 meters from the city center: the Gregorio Marañon car park which is a 9-minute walk from the halls, avenue du Professeur Gregorio Marañon with its 380 spaces and the Harriet Baïta car park located on Commander's Boulevard Passicot which has 210 places 3 minutes walk from Les Halles. You will find 50 minute parking spaces in the heart of the city, including 35 around the halls.

Please note: for people with reduced mobility who have a badge, all parking spaces in Saint Jean de Luz which are usually paid for are free.

Paid car parks

In order to encourage the rotation of vehicles parked near shops in downtown Saint-Jean-de-Luz, the city has set up a dissuasive pricing system. In the orange zone which covers the hyper center, the price remains advantageous for the first two hours and then drops to 27 euros (post-parking flat rate) at the end of the third hour.

For the green zone located around the heart of the city, the price is attractive until the end of the sixth hour, then we go to the post-parking package of 27 euros. Note that pricing varies depending on the season. You will find here the map of the division with the different zones.

Very practical, two Indigo underground car parks are also available in the city center:

The Grande Plage car park (300 spaces) located 8 rue Vincent Barjonnet
The Coeur de ville car park (365 spaces) located at 31 boulevard Victor Hugo

Subscriptions for residents and professionals

People who live or practice their profession in the paid parking zone can access special and preferential packages:

The “Residents” package of 30 euros per month. This rate concerns the green zone, for parking limited to 6 hours and is valid all year round. All the steps to access the “resident” rate can be done online;

The “seasonal car parks” packages which concern 3 car parks: Center, avenue Jaureguiberry, from July 1 to August 31 for a price of 147 euros; Center, rue Etcheto, from July 6 to August 31 for a price of 126 euros (subject to change); Lycée Saint-Thomas d’Aquin, from July 6 to August 24 for a price of 73.50 euros (subject to change).

Houses and apartments with private parking

Are you planning to move to the city center or invest in real estate in Saint-Jean-de-Luz? Consider choosing a property for sale or rental that already has its own garage or private parking space. This is still the case in the luxury real estate market. Having a house with a garage is much more comfortable, so you don't have to look for a place to park every day. You will waste less time on a daily basis by renting an apartment with private parking.

If you are planning to come and spend your holidays there, the trick is to look instead for a rental in Saint Jean de Luz with its garage or individual parking space. This is obviously the practical and economical solution!
