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.

2nd stay and just as good

5 of 5
We stayed in this property in 2016 and returned in July 2017 for 4 nights. There were 4 of us staying in the apartment and once again we loved it. It's great to have 2 bathrooms to speed up the process of getting ready in the morning. The location is excellent, trams and buses stop outside and being resident in the old town is excellent. Juan was a pleasure to deal with and if we return to Bilbao we would definitely be looking to rebook this property.

Fantastic!!

5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this fantastic place. If you are coming to the San Sebastián area I heartily recommend you use this place as a base. The host, Joxeanjel was charming and could not do enough for us. The house itself is secluded, secure with lovely grounds. The facilities are excellent with all possible needs catered for. Joxeanjel also recommended a visit to Zuberoa, a wonderful, charming Michelin Star restaurant within two minutes' walk of the house. A lovely, small discreet restaurant with a nice homely feel, lovely relaxed service from a very well-informed, friendly team who put us at ease. I particularly liked the fact that they had an extensive wine list (book!) with wines to suit every budget, not always the case in 'fine dining' restaurants and were so helpful in helping us make the right choice. And the food was amazing too! 😊. The house is around a 20 minute drive to the heart of the beautiful San Sebastián and its beaches. The house is surrounded by lovely countryside with lots of countryside walk and hill walks. There is a 15km cycle path which runs close by which takes priority over the cars. Excellent! All in all the perfect escape for a large family or group (we were 12) Thank You!
