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.

                                                            The apartment was perfectly located in a lovely part of the city and was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. The immediate area was wonderful in itself but also had very good public transport connections. Jose was waiting for us when we arrived and was very welcoming. We have rented lots of apartments across Europe and have no hesitation in recommending this one.

                                                            A comfortable, spacious and fully equipped apartment.. We couldn't have asked for anything else. Great location, you can walk everywhere. Car not needed. Easy to get to from the airport on public transport. Welcome pack was a nice touch. Supermarket just round the corner. The best apartment we have stayed in in Spain. Highly recommended. We hope to be back in the near future.
