Regis Guyot: a dream day in Guéthary

Located about halfway between Biarritz and the Spanish border, Guéthary is a beautiful little village that flies under the radar on France’s wild Atlantic coast. Local man-about-town Regis Guyot talks us through his dream day.

I’d start the day with an early morning surf session on the wild beach of Cenitz with its mythical rock waves. Then I’d have a coffee at La Providence in the centre of Guéthary village. In the afternoon, at low tide, I’d go for a swim in the small cove of Alcyons. Then I would go and make myself a pearl bracelet at Les Perles De Guéthary, a jewellery boutique run by artisans Jean-Paul and Fatima. I’d then show off my new bracelet to friends as we enjoyed a sunset aperitif at the Heteroclito, a modern seafront bar with a magnificent view of the famous waves of Parlementia. To finish, I’d have dinner at Ostalapia, a farm with rooms and a restaurant five minutes south of the village. Elisa always has a warm welcome and her restaurant is an authentic place that offers traditional local food. The terrace looks out on the Basque mountains.
