Do not be surprised by the name of this part of Biarritz! It all began in the 19th century, when a splendid mulatto, a waitress in an inn, has made an impact to the Napoleon's troops (and touched their hearts). It is in tribute to her beauty that the neighborhood was baptized like that. Choose an accommodation in Biarritz La Negresse.

At the heart of the city, the neighborhood of the Negress is mainly residential. This situation assures you tranquility without being really isolated. As you will immediatly notice, nothing is really far from the downtown of Biarritz or far from the beach! Moreover, an hand-crafted area which is always active and the SNCF station served by the TGV are an integral part of the Negresse neighborhood. The craft area has an exciting history that you can discover by going for a walk there. At the beginning of the 20th century, it sheltered famous salting anchovies and a tile factory whose buildings were preserved and renovated. Another interest in this district resides in the Lake Mouriscot. Encircled and surrounded by steep wooded slopes, the surroundings of the lake are ideal to enjoy the weather in a different environment than the beach, its winds sometimes violent and bathers often concentrated in the same places. More peacefully, nautical activities such as boat or pedal boat can be favourable alternatives to surfing. If you are patient, you can also fish your dinner: pike, carp and tench are only waiting for your fishing rod to finish on your plate.The neighborhood of the Negress represents a kind of peaceful parenthesis in the animation and the dynamics that liven up many districts of Biarritz. Another decor is offered to you, less maritime but just as charming. And if you want to make a trip to the city center or visit the Phare, it is not an exploration but rather a pleasant walk to do on foot.
