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.

With just a few extra touches this could be a great flat. Things that were annoying/not quite there: * Not enough loo roll provided for a longer stay (5 nights) * No spare towels provided * No kitchen starters (oil,salt etc) you will have to buy everything * Broken Wine glass on arrival * Toilet flush broke during stay, contacted owner with no response. Apart from this, everything was fine.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Although there were only 2 of us, there would be ample room for 4 adults. We enjoyed watching the world go by from the bedroom balcony and cooking in the kitchen that had everything you could possibly need. Having the tram stop 30 metres outside the apartment was so convenient and the metro stop is only a short walk. There's a Carrefour nearby and a traditional market just across the road that serves extensive tapas or pinxchos as they are known in Basque country. Liaison with our host was easy and helpful. I would highly recommend for anyone who loves city life.
