Make a holiday rental home or villa in Basque Country, Spain your home away from home

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.

Conveniently close to the Old Town and to the best places to taste the typical Pintxos of San Sebastian. The apartment has had a brand-new refurbishment inside a classical old house in the city. The beds are great. Kitchen is fully equipped with brand-new appliances, and they even provide some basics such as washing tablets or dishwashing soap. Bathrooms have brand-new showers really handy especially when you are just coming from the beach. The living room is equipped with sofa, dinning table, TV and DVD. Wireless network is provided for free and it worked with no issues at all. We travelled with a 1 year old baby and they provided a cot bed with all bed linen required. We would indeed go to this apartment again in case we repeat our trip to San Sebastián.

Apartment has everything and is close enough to old town and surf beach. Multitude of bars, restaurants, supermarkets around the apt. Place was spotless on arrival. Really reasonable. We loved our stay in San Sebastián. Definitely will be back.
