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.

The house is spacious, gorgeously decorated and has a large, attractive garden. There is on site parking, good wi-fi and the kitchen well equipped. Three spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms ensured that even with two couples and two children we had plenty of room. We loved the outdoor BBQ/Wood grill, and cooked and ate outside often. Situated five minutes drive from the Lasarte Metro, where there is free parking, you can catch a 20 minute train into the heart of San-Sebastian, culinary capital of Spain. You can also take the coastal road West, and visit the myriad of wonderful coastal towns and beautiful beaches. We would wholeheartedly recommend this special house to anyone. Thank you Javier and Miguel for a magical stay. We will be back next year!
