Did you know that the harbour of Saint-Jean-de-Luz was originally protected by cliffs and a sand dune rising in the middle of the bay?

As a result of the numerous storms that did not cease to damage, from the end of the seventeenth century, these natural protections until taking away part of the dune and flooding the city regularly. Despite the construction of a wall of guarantee at the site of the breach, the district of the bar undergoes for more than a century the assaults of the sea, gradually taking away most of the buildings. It was Napoleon III who, in the mid-19th century, offered the city protection and security. Thus he began work on the closure of the bay, ordering the construction of the dikes of Socoa, Sainte Barbe and Artha which, since the beginning of the 20th century, close the harbour and are now part of the Luzian landscape. The old wall of guarantee, meanwhile, was transformed into a promenade and a footbridge was added, allowing the new houses built in front of the bay to enjoy direct access to the beach. Today, this postcard decoration is the main tourist heritage of the city. With My Home In Saint Jean de Luz, find the ideal accommodation for a dream holiday.
