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.

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.

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

Fabulously compact and clean

5 of 5
What a great apartment, we enjoyed a friendly welcome from Maria who gave lots of recommendations of things to see, do and (most importantly) eat! We did wonder whether we would have street noise at night, but as the apartment is at the back of the building, nothing at all which we were happy to trade in place of a view of the street. The apartment was perfect for the two of us for a 3 night stay and we were right in the middle of the old town with all the pinxos bars. Despite eating out (grazing all day) we did use the little kitchen area to cook an amazing steak from the market and we found that all the essentials were there. This apartment is clean, fresh and perfect for us. The owner also kept in touch with little WhatsApp messages to check we were ok during our stay. I'm sure we'll be back soon!
