What a wonderful surprise. The grounds were beautiful. The chapel is very nice and well maintained. It is not large so it is not a long stop but well worth finding and seeing.

Took some finding and then when we found the entrance found it is only open a few hours a week at present which was disappointing as the outside looks very different and highly detailed

Built by Eugenia wife of Napoleon III this is a gem. Beautifully decorated inside. Sad to see tiles fallen off outside. Bust of Eugenia in the garden. Well worth a visit.

This is a "must see", otherwise you will miss out on French architecture. When I used to travel to France, Biarritz was an important stop; I had a picture of me bathing in the sea!
