Cheap flights to Biarritz
Nineteenth century elegance, a healthy respect for good food, and a nice helping of spa-like pampering come as standard in Biarritz, one of France’s chicest resorts.
If you want to holiday like royalty then you can’t get much better than Biarritz. Known for attracting the likes of Queen Victoria in the 19th century and Frank Sinatra a hundred years later, this city in the Basque region of France is rightly titled the ‘Monte Carlo of the Atlantic coast’.

Families, teenage surfers, young couples and the silver set – they’re all here enjoying what the city has to offer.
