Check in to the magnificent 5 star Hotel du Palais for 4 wonderful VIP nights. Relive the glory years of this legendary seaside resort, home to members of the aristocracy and the art world. One cannot fail to fall under the spell of elegance and the legendary ‘art of living’ at the Hotel du Palais.
Optional Practice Round
If you arrive by lunchtime, join your On The Tee host, Meredith Holmes for a practice round at Golf du Biarritz Le Phare. A truly beautiful course, Golf du Biarritz Le Phare is a much cherished golf club, no doubt due to its exceptional panoramic views and its links to the imperial past. Here is your chance to get a sneak preview of the course, enjoy it and take notes for when you play it in the tournament.
Alternatively, put on your walking shoes and grab your camera, to get the best view of Biarritz with a visit to the Rocher de la Vierge. Napoleon III had this amazing idea to hollow out this stone surrounded by reef. And once completed he added a walkway linking it to the cliff and added the Virgin Mary! Take your time to explore the village and have a nightcap before joining the group for dinner nearby.
Day 2 - Friday 27 September
Day Trip to San Sebastián, Spain
Everybody’s favourite, San Sebastián is a resort town on the Bay of Biscay in Spain’s mountainous Basque Country. It’s known for beaches framed by a picturesque bay front promenade, a cobblestone old town and vibrant pintxo ( Basque tapas) bars, pairing local wines with regional tapas. When it comes to food, no other city quite compares.
We take a 2 hour guided walking tour on arrival followed by some local tapas for lunch.
The rest of the afternoon is yours to explore this vibrant town and meet a few locals. Our visit happens to coincides with the International Film Festival, Zinemaldia, the most cosmopolitan event on San Sebastien’s calendar, so don’t be surprised should you spot a movie star or two or an up and coming movie director.
