They all used to come here – from Napoleon III to Frank Sinatra. Biarritz used to be the Monte Carlo of the Atlantic coast. The glamour has faded, but thanks to windsurfing and other water sports, the city has rejuvenated. It is now the perfect destination for a relaxing weekend break, complete with some of the best food around.
