Biarritz boasts many top quality golf courses and is one of the best regions for golf in mainland Europe, with four courses in Europe’s top 100 and a further four courses in the top 50 in France. Fishing Due to its geographic position, quality of the water and magnificent landscape, the whole of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques area is fantastic for fishing. From white-water rapids, lakes or rivers, fishing enthusiasts are able to enjoy wild salmon and trout fishing, fly fishing or course fishing. Our local river, the Gave d’Oloron quite often produces the largest salmon caught each year in France and is also home to the annual World Salmon Fishing Championships (April/May). The Gave d’Oloron and the Gave de Mauleon are two of France’s best combined salmon and trout rivers and world renowned for the fighting qualities of the fish. Fly fishermen can enjoy 2500km of mountain trout rivers fed by melting snow from the Pyrénées making it a unique experience for all levels of abilities. For those interested in coarse fishing, the rivers and lakes are stocked with populations of barbel, chub, dace, gudgeon, roach, rudd, bream and carp. In honour of the local salmon, the town of Navarrenx holds a salmon festival, Saumonade Fête, on Bastille Day (14 July) each year where teams compete to cook various salmon dishes. Cycling Help yourself to the bicycles at the house and explore the lovely routes along the river, through the picturesque local villages or head off-road in the nearby woodlands.
