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.

Things to do in Basque Country, Spain

Beach lovers will be more than happy with the offerings in the Basque Country, which include the famous La Concha beach in San Sebastian where visitors can sunbathe, swim and enjoy the various water sports on offer such as canoeing and sailing.

San Sebastian and Bilbao also offer a huge variety of restaurants and bars where visitors can indulge themselves with local delights including the local take on tapas and Basque cider.

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.

Places to visit on holiday in Basque Country, Spain

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. The best time to visit is in August, which sees the annual Semana Grande festival, where Bilbao’s streets come alive with music, dance, bullfighting and other typical Spanish festivities.

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.

Good but not great

4 of 5
The flat is quite well located, being about a 15-20 minute walk from the old town and the beach. 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.

A perfectly appointed apartment; ideally positioned for the old town

5 of 5
We loved our stay in this very well appointed, spacious apartment which was so easy to reach via public transport from the airport. 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.
