Where are we going?
We’re off to the beautiful basque region of France to a place just north of Hossegor. The region is best known for it’s incredible beach break surf, good food, wine and weather! We’ll stay in Villa Tiki, which is an eco surf lodge in Vieux-Boucau. The accommodation is dorm style rooms with good clean bunks and shower facilities. This area is fantastic owing to the 2 minute walk to the beach with superb waves and great hang out area out the back with hammocks, BBQ and a slack line!
How are we getting there?
We’ll fly from Dublin direct to Biarritz with good old Ryanair returning on the same flight one week later. When we’re there we’ll have rental car transport for the week to get around the beautiful south west.
What activities will we do?
The main activity of course will be surfing. With sessions tailored to your level, we’ll make the most of the waves during the trip. We’ll also do some body surfing and improving wave knowledge and fitness. We are of course going to see the worlds best surfers during our stay, the competition site is only 10-15 mins from the house by car so we’ll take trips there to see how the worlds best surf the amazing French beach breaks!
Other active things we can do include renting mopeds, bridge diving and swimming!
What other things are there to see and do?
There are many fantastic outlet stores with top surfing brands such as Rip Curl, Quiksilver, Billabong and Hurley so the shopping is good! This area really is the surfing centre of Europe so you’ll get to see many great surfboards and experience the continental surf scene!
Just over an hour away is the superb cultural city of San Sebastian. A day trip to see the surfboard stores, walk around the old city and eat some pinxtos is a must!
Where’s the party?
We will be 15 minutes from Hossegor town which has a great buzz in the evening with live music and plenty of packed surf bars. Also San Sebastian is a fantastic place to visit. We’ll do 1 night stay in San Sebastian to really get a feel for the place and enjoy the fantastic night life.
What about food arrangements?
We’ll shop for healthy breakfast goodies including fresh juice, breads, cereals and plenty of fruit. There are many good places to eat for lunch and dinner, we’ve some recommendations for good traditional French cuisine including excellent steak, fish, salads and of course mousse au chocolat.
How much will it cost?
The price for the week is 650 euro including 7 nights accommodation, 5 surf coaching sessions, transport and breakfast each morning. Flights can be booked individually and are currently 90 euro return.
If you need surfing equipment it’ll be available to rent at Villa Tiki for approx 15euro per day.
Lunches and dinners vary in price but if you budget 10-15 euros for a good lunch and 20-30 for a three course dinner and wine that would be sufficient. Most evenings we’ll go out to find a good place to eat but lunches you can prepare a sandwich and eat around Vila Tiki if you wish.
Will we get a sun tan?
Most definitely! The weather in October is likely to be quite warm from 20-25 degrees but we can get the occasional overcast or rainy day like all of Europes coastline. The waters are much warmer than Ireland however so summer 3/2mm wetsuits/short wetsuits are plenty to keep you warm at this time of year.
We’ve been travelling to this part of France for the past 15 years and have some great beaches, restaurants and cultural sights to visit. If you’ve never seen the world’s best surfers in action it’ll be an incredible sight! We hope you can join us this Autumn on a Narosa Adventure!
