Clémence communicated quickly and effectively in relation to our booking, our arrival and our check-out. The photos of the apartment accurately illustrate how it looks and feels. We immediately felt "at home". The apartment is located about 20-25 minutes walk from the center of Biarritz. We found the walk through the residential areas to the city center both enjoyable and safe at all times. A small, yet very well equipped supermarket is located 1 minutes walk from the apartment. Perfect for shopping for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The apartment has a private car park. We enjoyed taking our car to Anglet beach, a 10 minutes drive from the house. Anglet has a beautiful beach (much) less crowded that Le Grand Plage in Biarritz. And it's good for surfing (surf schools are located conveniently on the beach and offer surf board rental and surf lessons). Two things I believe is relevant for potential travellers to consider: 1) The rental did not include bed sheets and towels. We were admittedly greatly disappointed when we realised this, as personally, I believe this should have been specifically highlighted in the listing. In all other Airbnb lisitings I have visited bed sheets have always been included. Clémence argued that we should have realised that the listing made no mention of bed sheets. I believe it would be helpful to specifically highlight in the listing that tenants must bring their own. No is in one's interest to start the holiday with a disappointment and having to buy new bed sheets. If nothing else, I hope this review will help other travellers bring their own. 2) The apartment has two double beds in two separate rooms and can therefore host four people. The bed sofa is located in the living room and kitchen, which is the only room with access to the toilet and bathroom. This means that visitors sleeping in the bedroom will need to pass through the living room and kitchen to access the toilet and bathroom. To us it was not an issue, but some travellers may prefer a place with separate access to the toilet and bath (the bathroom is beautiful by the way!). Hopefully the two points will be helpful for other travellers. Once we had organised our bed sheets we very much enjoyed our stay in the apartment and we would definitely hope to stay in the apartment if we come to Biarritz again... now that we also have well-fitting bed sheets to bring :)

Response from Clémence:
Bonjour Andréas, merci pour votre gentil commentaire concernant l'appartement. J'aimerai déjà précisé que nous sommes à 15mins à pieds du centre ville et non à 25mins à pieds mais merci ;) Ensuite, concernant vos remarques, je souhaite préciser que vous avez avouer ne pas avoir lu l'annonce de l'appartement et donc ne pas connaître les informations le concernant ce qui est nécessaire quand on loue un appartement pour les vacances. Ensuite, comme il est indiqué dans la liste des fournitures : les draps et les serviettes ne sont pas fournis. Nous ne sommes pas le seul appartement sur Airbnb à faire ça et comme nous ne vivons pas à Biarritz c'est compliqué pour nous et je n'ai rien caché vis à vis de cela puisque c'est indiqué dans l'annonce. Tout est écrit, je ne comprends donc pas cette remarque et je trouve cela bien dommage, c'était à vous de lire l'annonce complètement, d'ailleurs vous ne saviez pas non plus qu'il n'y avait pas internet alors que c'est noté. ;) Pour ce qui est du système des lits et des salles de bain tout est écrit aussi. L’appartement est l'ancienne salle de réception des Grimaldi donc ce n'est pas un appartement typique ;) Merci tout de même pour votre visite, et je suis heureuse, que globalement l'appartement vous ai plus (même si vous m'avez cacher les petites brulûres dans la cuisine que j'ai découverte ensuite). Cordialement Clémence Dear Andres,, thank you for your nice comment about the apartment. I would like already said that we walk in 15mins from the city center and not to 25mins walk but thank you ;) Then for your comments, I want to say that you admit to not having read the announcement of the apartment and therefore do not know the information about what is required when renting an apartment for the holidays. Then, as shown in the list of supplies: sheets and towels are not provided. We are not the only apartment on Airbnb to do that and as we do not live in Biarritz it's complicated for us and I have concealed nothing with respect to this since it is stated in the announcement. Everything is written, so I do not understand this remark and I find it unfortunate, it was to read the full announcement, besides you do not know that there was no internet then that Noted. ;) Regarding the system of beds and bathrooms everything is written too. The apartment is old Grimaldi reception room so it is not a typical apartment ;) Thanks anyway for your visit, and I am pleased that overall the apartment you have more (even if you have hide minor burns in the kitchen I discovered later). Sincerely, Clemence

Сlemence was very helpful, kind and friendly! Apartment is located 15 min walk from city Centre in a very nice district with a beautiful houses around. You feel like in a real French countryside. The only things that are not very comfortable that you need to take your sheets for the bed and towels, but we were worried about this upon arrival. Also, as the house is an old building you have a smell of the old building inside the apartment and some problems with bath sink. Just across the apartment you may find a supermarket and may organize a beautiful breakfast on the own terrace
