Ideally situated two minutes from the excellent market and a super boulangerie as well as local shops.Less than five minutes from the beach and even less to the port. The owner was very helpful, answering queries by email as well as in person. Our only reservation was that we would have liked more comfortable seating y

The owners were bright , friendly and helpful, even understanding our attempts at French. As a couple we had booked this apartment based on the position shown on the maps and were pleasantly surprised at the location, spaciousness and facilities provided, two proper bedrooms, not a put u up in the lounge area, a fitted kitchen with abundant equipment, crockery and cutlery, a generous sized television, we did miss a dvd player, and well fitted bathroom with washing machine. There was a computer available but we wanted to stay away from temptations to work so did not make use of it. The physical location above a roundabout could have been problematic but noise was not a problem at night and the closeness to bakery, local supermarket, cafes and restaurants enhanced the convenience. We enjoyed exploring the bay area and the beach including visiting other nearby towns, Hondaribia and San Sebastian by train/ferry and took advantage of the nearby restaurants Undoubtedly we shall return when able.

It is in an ideal situation: close to wonderful beaches, good walking on the doorstep, (you can look at out the Rhune from the apartment), plus the delightful town of St Jean de Luz within a stone's throw. A peaceful and relaxing retreat.
