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.

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.

Igualmente amable a la hora se gestionar la cancelación de la reserva.

The owner Juan, is clearly keen to make a success of the apartment and is quick to respond to any queries.

Everything you need to experience Bilbao close at hand. Bars, restaurants, coffee & fabulous pastries, amazing market. We got a taxi to and from the airport and walked everywhere. Only negative was noise coming from upstairs apartment on our last night. However, Jose Ramon, seemed aware of problem and hopefully this does not happen often. I must stress that this did not spoil our holiday in a great apartment and ideal location. I would most certainly stay there again.
