Positioned on a headland between two pristine beaches, the spectacular Hotel du Palais is a symbol of French excellence. Originally built as the private residence of the Emperor Napoleon III and Empress Eugénie, it today features 150 rooms including 30 suites, the award-winning Le Spa Impérial, three fantastic restaurants, a heated outdoor pool and your own putting and pitching green.

Just steps from the pretty town centre of Biarritz, its surroundings are packed with activities to inspire and delight. There are great golf courses, beaches that sweep towards the Pyrenees and nearby Spain, and Basque villages to explore inland.
