Chic interiors and an award-winning restaurant and spa by the beach at Biscarosse, an hour's drive from Bordeaux - includes breakfast and spa access

Worthy holder of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, Le Grand Hôtel de la Plage offers a ringside seat at southwest France's Biscarosse beach. The hotel first welcomed guests over a century ago, when it was housed in a classic wooden weatherboard building. Today it boasts a new gleaming white incarnation and minimalist design. Sharp angles cast strong shadows on its terraces betwixt land and sea – enhanced by the intense sunlight – an artist's inspiration that constantly changes throughout the day. Drift off to sleep to the sound of the ocean and wake each morning to sweeping vistas of sea and sky.

Nominated at the prestigious Villegiature Awards, the hotel's pride and joy is its award-winning terrace restaurant, where you can enjoy relaxed gourmet dining within a pebble's throw of the beach. Equally enticing is the seasonal outdoor infinity pool (open May to September) and sundeck – a real bonus should the surf prove too strong for swimming.

The air here is purifying and invigorating – you can almost feel the ozone doing its good work. Slide even further into serenity with a delicious spa treatment, adding to the overall sense of well-being. Add to this some superb golf courses, world-class surfing, pine forest trails and tranquil inland lakes and you have all you could desire for a rejuvenating stay in the great French outdoors.
