History

Bidart is a traditional Basque village by the sea between Biarritz and Saint Jean de Luz. The first mention of the parish of Bidart dates back to the XNUMXth century, and its name comes from "Bide Artean", which means "at the crossroads". The Sainte Madeleine and Saint Joseph chapels, as well as its old church, are landmarks particularly venerated by pilgrims along Saint-Jacques de Compostelle. Thanks to its proximity to the ocean, Bidart's economy was originally based on whaling, fishing and boat building. Towards the end of the XNUMXth century, Bidart focused on meeting the demand of the growing tourism industry. Since then, countless locals and visitors have been charmed by this charming little Basque village with its wild charm thanks to its tree-lined cliffs and pristine beaches.
