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.

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.

Wonderful home, wonderful hosts

5 of 5
Javier and Miguel were very kind and generous hosts lending us their beautiful home near San Sebastián. It was a great base for exploring the region-amazing countryside, beaches and of course the food and drink. We sampled many delicious pinxtos and glasses of txikoli during our visit. When back at the house great to relax in the garden listening to the birds and waterfall. Kids loved feeding the sheep. Highly recommended

So far this apartment is the best we ha e ever stayed at in all our travels! The view is exceptional! The highlight of our stay was watching the surfers ride the waves at sunset drinking a glass of Rioja on the terrace . It is equipped with a chef’s kitchen and had a uitility room for laundry which is rare in apartments these days. We loved the rooms being all the way at the back meaning zero noise . Gros is such a nice area, very local and near the old town.I will return!
