Petit Futé's opinion on VILLA BELZA

Vintage plate 2020

Overlooking the beach of the Côte des Basques on one side, the Devil's Abyss and the Old Port on the other, proudly perched on its rock overlooking the mountains in the distance, you can only see it, Villa Belza. With its striking appearance overlooking the waves, it is THE most emblematic figure of Biarritz. As photogenic as one could wish for (as much as the Rock of the Virgin!), it appears as the muse on all postcards, photos and tourist images. Before it became a beauty, it was the modest land of a farmer. The architect Alphonse Bertrand did not give it its rectangular shape until 1882, before Dominique Morin added his neo-Medieval keep and turret. Its mysterious airs have never ceased to entertain dark legends of witchcraft and ghosts... hence its name Belza, black in Basque. In the Roaring Twenties, converted into a Russian cabaret called Château Basque, she saw sumptuous galas and sumptuous evenings that will go down in the annals of history. End of carelessness: divided and badly maintained, she will be devastated by two fires and left to her sad fate. Finally renovated and saved from ruin (but sold in lots of apartments), it will be classified in 1997 by the city. The villa was the subject of a major phase of renovation of its exteriors from 2015 to 2018. The road of the seafront became pedestrian gives even more authenticity to the place. Today, you can rent a studio in this prestigious establishment with an exceptional setting and a bewitching atmosphere.
