Bidart, whose history dates back to the 12th century, is a typical Basque village, admirably situated on the ocean, between Biarritz and Saint-Jean-de-Luz (N10), rich in a beautiful heritage, with its brightly coloured houses, its church where the voices of Basque choirs are raised and its deep-rooted Basque culture. Originally, its name Bide Artean means "at the crossroads". It was originally a relay for the horse-drawn postal service, by the old road of the Plateau, the same road that Louis XIV took to get to his wedding in Saint-Jean-de-Luz. Other royal personalities such as Nathalie of Serbia who (in exile) had built a magnificent mansion on the Sacchino estate - today, Les Ailes - visible from the beach of the Royal Pavilion. Historically, Bidart has long made a living from fishing... Today, a renowned seaside resort that stretches on each side of the national road to Guéthary, it has a beautiful tourist infrastructure: six beaches, two pediments, a 9-hole golf course and a renowned golf training centre (Ilbarritz), miniature golf courses, an equestrian centre. And some very nice upgrades, in terms of accommodation.
