RE: Information

by l.andrews

hey im thinking bout doing the same for the summmer but it's pretty hard going to get a job in france in general just to let you know. the french are strict in who they employ...including the average french student!
Everyone who i have asked is basically saying its impossible ive been told that if u know people over there then you could be lucky enough to get one in biarritz.
also just so you know you might be better off just going online and googling bars or shops or whatever you want to work as and email them straight off and say tour looking for a job! spain is the opposite you just arrive there and look for a job and are pretty much guaranteed a job!

good luck anyway!

Travel Tips for Biarritz

A plus de 300 km/h,

A plus de 300 km/h, c'est la balle la plus rapide au monde

La pelote est le sport roi du Pays Basque. Les différents quartiers de la ville abritent l'incontournable fronton. Les vingt-et-une spécialités depuis le jeu de la main nue jusqu'à la cesta punta allient puissance et habileté. Ces différentes spécialités se jouent en " place libre ", en " fronton mur à gauche " ou en " trinquet ".
Le premier titre mondial pour la France est remporté par le biarrot Serge Camy en cesta punta en 1970. Cet amoureux du gant en osier sera l'un des premier français à tenter l'aventure américaine en jouant en professionnel à Miami.

The ball is the sport king of the Country Basque. The different districts of the city shelter the obligatory pediment. The twenty-one specialties since the game of the naked hand until the cesta punta ally power and cleverness. These different specialties are played in " free place " , in " pediment wall on the left " or in " trinquet ".
The first world title for France is taken back by the biarrot Serge Camy in cesta punta in 1970. This in love with the wicker glove will be one of the first French to tempt the American adventure while playing in professional in Miami.
Les grands rendez-vous :

Biarritz accueille sur ces " canchas " de grandes compétitions professionnelles de cesta punta qui permettent à un public averti d'observer de magnifiques parties. Les estivants, quant à eux, apprennent à découvrir ce sport spectaculaire et envoûtant.

Les Masters du Jaï Alaï (juillet)
Le Gant d'Or (août)
Le Trophée des Supers Champions (septembre)
Démonstration et rencontre des différentes disciplines le mardi et le vendredi de début juillet à fin août

summer afternoon in Biarritz

by lordofstrings81

Biarritz was a great time, and I would highly recommend visiting. Though you should likely make it a stop on a continueing trip, or go in the summer time, because the beaches are the entertainment. They are quite entertaining however, in the summertime, as the waves are surfable, this would be a prime location to try it out if you've never done it before, though you will have to teach yourself as I don't believe there is any instruction. The town itself is quite delightful. It has many little shops and food vendors, along the single plaza that runs the length of the coastline. The church as well is very beautiful; however no pictures are allowed. I would suggest learning some French if you go there, because the English is quite scarce if you aren't in the resort areas. However, this as many French cities tend to be is a quite romantic destination
