Biarritz is a well-known city in the extreme south-west of France called Pays Basque, on the Atlantic coast. Biarritz is famous for its waves, its proximity to Spain (18 km) and its 19th century architecture thanks to Napoleon III and his wife, the Empress Eugenie. The main collective sport played here is rugby, and competition between Bayonne & Biarritz is always present; only one can remain the champion!
