Make a holiday rental home or villa in Basque Country, Spain your home away from home

The Basque Country is home to the Basque people, whose language, culture and traditions set the region aside from other areas in Spain while still maintaining the same laid-back way of life. The beaches of San Sebastian give way to cosmopolitan cityscapes in Bilbao, then rolling green countryside around Alava and Vitoria. Whichever you prefer, the area is dotted with Basque Country villas with pools where you can relax and soak in the chilled out surroundings.

Things to do in Basque Country, Spain

Beach lovers will be more than happy with the offerings in the Basque Country, which include the famous La Concha beach in San Sebastian where visitors can sunbathe, swim and enjoy the various water sports on offer such as canoeing and sailing.

San Sebastian and Bilbao also offer a huge variety of restaurants and bars where visitors can indulge themselves with local delights including the local take on tapas and Basque cider.

Arts lovers can get their fix at one of a number of notable theatres across the Basque Country, mostly in Bilbao or Vitoria-Gasteiz. The Bilbao Symphony Orchestra also plays regularly both in Bilbao and other musical festivals which are held regularly across the region during the summer months.

Bilbao is the largest city in the Basque Country and is home to the famous Guggenheim Museum which exhibits world-class modern and contemporary arts exhibits.

Vitoria-Gasteiz is home to a number of fine examples of Gothic churches, including the Cathedral or Santa Maria. There are also lots of museums in the town devoted to such varied themes as art, natural sciences, archaeology and playing cards.

Miramar Palace at San Sebastian is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon away from the beach, with an intricately designed country house surrounded by beautiful parks and gardens, all of which are open to the public.

Excellent property in a pretty & friendly town

5 of 5
Clean and very convenient (look out for the lift to/from the old town). Lots of character in the neighbourhood, but easy to reach the San Pedro restaurants, public transport (including the ferry to France).

Great

5 of 5
The apartment was clean and comfortable. There was mixture of modern kitchen and shower room with the more traditional sitting room and a large terrace. In short, it was a pleasure inside and out. Plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 children. The weather was good. We enjoyed the nearby beach, San Sebastian aquarium, train museum at Azpetia, Zarautz and Getaria. All easily accessible via train or bus. Thank you Itziar. We would come again.
