Buying a property in Ciboure
The real estate market in Ciboure
An authentic Basque pearl set on the edge of the bay of Socoa, a stone's throw from Saint Jean de Luz. We could present Ciboure this way. The small seaside resort has around 6,800 inhabitants and is organized around a historic center with decidedly Basque architecture. Over the years, modern districts have been added to this heart of a village with very ancient origins, combining family houses with luxury residences.
Land is scarce in Ciboure, which covers only 740 hectares. Thus, the real estate market revolves around a majority of old apartments in the center and 30% of single-family homes built in the new districts of Utxin and Nivelle. However, with a specificity of size, the prestigious residential district of Bordagain which, on the hill of the same name, overlooks the bay with an incredible panorama of the ocean and the mountain.
Ciboure now has 65% owners, while second homes represent 41% of the market.
The rate of primary residences is around 54%, leaving some hopes for rental investment enthusiasts. Average prices per m2 can vary greatly depending on the view and proximity to the ocean. Today they are slightly higher for apartments for sale.
Living in Ciboure
With its predominantly family population, Ciboure has retained the identity and friendliness of the fishing village of its origins. Its port was indeed a hotspot for whaling and the maritime tradition is still very strong there, both at the fishing port and at the still active marina. The historic center is home to an astonishing Dutch-style house which was the birthplace of Maurice Ravel, as well as numerous bars, restaurants and local shops on the quay that bears his name. Village life is also preserved with the market which is held every Sunday around local products. The town now has nurseries, primary schools, including a bilingual French-Basque, and a maritime high school that trains people in the sea.
There are many sports activities supported by local associations and the Socoa nautical base has become a must on the coast. Finally, faithful to traditions, Cibourians never miss the famous festivals of the Bixintxo, the tuna festival or that of the sea.
The movements of the inhabitants are facilitated by the urban transport network which connects it to Saint Jean de Luz and Urrugne.
