Biarritz, in the south-west of France, is a part of the BAB metropolis (Bayonne-Anglet-Biarritz). This town of approximately 30,000 inhabitants is a world-renowned resort town.
Biarritz enjoys a mild and temperate climate largely due to its proximity to the Atlantic. Summers are pretty warm with an average temperature at 23°C, but the cool breeze from the sea makes it a pleasant time to visit. Winters in Biarritz are probably the mildest in France with the average temperature at 12°C.
Biarritz was established as an ordinary fishing village. The wife of Napoleon III was so taken by the town that she built a castle here, and then, it soon turned a holiday spot for royalty. For many years, Biarritz catered only to the wealthy, but today, it attracts tourists with all kinds of budgets.
