From La Rochelle to Biarritz

After two days exploring La Rochelle and Ile de Re, we set off to Biarritz. 

We had an easy hop down the coast stopping for a sandwich before arriving at our beautiful hotel, the Chateau Clair de la Lune, just outside Biarritz. 
We enjoyed a swim and a drink by the pool before setting off to Biarritz for the rest of the day. 
The town was busy, everyone on holiday, surfing, swimming and sunning. We strolled along the beach and explored the fishing port.

I renewed my love affair with the traditional cake, the Gateau Basque although ten years later, it seemed sweeter than the last time I had tried it. 
After eating we took a bottle of wine back to the hotel where we watched the last of the sunset and Agnes ran around in the stunning grounds. 
The day had cooled and we enjoyed an evening respite from the heat of the day.
