A tee’s throw from surfing beaches, fringed by pines in the smart enclave of Chiberta, is a serene, secluded, 1960s villa. Here live Brigitte and her adorable bulldog Icare, happily sharing their home with guests. The setting is lovely: bamboos and palms on lawns, exotic plants in pots, and two ground-floor suites opening to a decked terrace and a fabulous pool. There are three bedrooms in all: clean, contemporary, restful in white, with splashes of sunshine from fabrics and towels. Bathrooms are… flawless! Walk to bars, restaurants, beaches, golf; set off for the lovely towns of Biarritz and Bayonne.
