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.

We were going to a festival and wanted to leave our luggage prior to entry time, this wasn't an issue. Juan's daughter met us at the property, lovely and helpful. We loved the property and location and hope to book again. Thanks Juan.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Although buses were available we walked everywhere for a fortnight- even from the bus station when we arrived. Mikal was unable to greet us but his friend provided an excellent service in his stead throughout our stay.The washer/dryer was useful and the bed extremely comfortable. We had taken pack up macs but there is a very useful large umbrella in the apartment. We would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and relatives and would love to return ourselves. San Sebastian is compartmentalised into different areas. We mainly used the old town (Parte Vielja), The Central/Romantic area, Gros and parts of Egia. All seem to have their own cultural centre. We used pinxto bars, restaurants, parks, cultural centres to see cinema and dance, beaches (large,flat, sandy and quiet! although we were there mid September) gardens, museums, lovely shops (very many independent) and local food markets. The whole area feels safe and is easy walking.We found the river Urumea a constant source of entertainment (changing tides and fish activity). Our favourites: Koh tao bar( opposite the flat). Morgan's restaurant (in the Old Town). Simisirri Bar (close to the church in the old town.) It also does a few gluten free Pinxtos if you need them! Christina Enea park (for a shady walk.) There seemed to be good facilities for wheelchairs and we commonly saw guests being easily accommodated in eateries and cultural facilities.
