Biarritz is a prestigious and elegant seaside resort on the French Atlantic coast. Long sandy beaches, sumptuous buildings and villas in eclectic architectural styles, Biarritz has kept its charm over the years.

The town is rich in culture and history with a combination of French, Basque and Spanish lifestyles, evident in its mix of cuisine, architecture and local customs.

If you love playing golf, you will enjoy the many golf courses found in the city. Biarritz and the Basque Country are internationally renowned for their excellence. Ideally located between the ocean and the mountains, they attract golfers from all around the world and the climate suits to all-year round play.

Our school in Biarritz runs a specific golfing course, giving you the perfect opportunity to combine your French tuition with golf lessons!

Either you are a beginner or you are an experienced golfer, you will enjoy our special programme in the International Training Center and Golf Course of Ilbarritz.

Once you have visited Biarritz’s historical sites and enjoyed playing golf, take some time to explore the cities around like Bayonne for its exquisite gastronomy or try Basque pelota, the traditional sport of the region.

Biarritz is a small town, so it’s easy to meet people, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to speak French with the locals!

Biarritz’s golf : The International Training Center and Golf Course of Ilbarritz

The Ilbarritz course is an impressive 9 holes course facing the ocean. It’s a par 32, with a 2,176 meters length period. It’s a very technical course set up as a practice run for the apprenticeship. 

This unusual concept recreates all the game situations found on a real Golf Course around a circular practice course.

 
The various workstations of the training center allow complete training according to your aspirations or weaknesses. From the short game to full swing, on synthetic carpets or perfect grass, on flat or hilly ground, you will be able to improve every single aspect of your game.
 
This spot is the place to be for high level players, but it’s also ideal to make the first steps for beginners.

Sessions are supervised by a qualified golf instructor.

Equipment is provided.

 

In the afternoon or evening, our partner school organises activities for an additional price: rafting, sea kayaking, hiking, basque pelota, visits to museums and traditional villages, cooking classes, etc… 

Each activity is supervised by a qualified professional.

We encourage you to join in some organised activities to have fun whilst practicing your French.

 

Accommodation

Our partner school offers accommodation in a host family. 

We advise you to stay with a local host family. Through living with a family, you will experience a full immersion in the country’s lifestyle and improve your french.

Our local host families are vetted and chosen rigorously by our language school partner. Most of them have been hosting for years. The location of their homes is an average 20 minutes on foot from the school.

You have the choice between full or half board.
