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.

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.

Great location - spectacular views,

5 of 5
As a family of 6 we had a great week staying in this wonderful traditional farmhouse that has been beautifully renovated. The views from the terrace are spectacular. A quiet country location in the hills but with easy close access to the Ap 8 motorway providing quick access to cities, towns and the beaches. We really enjoyed visiting San Sebastian (using the park and ride) Bergara, Onati and the Sanctuary at Arantzazu and also would recommend the Flyche walk from Deba to Zumaia. We particularly liked the beach and the bars in Zumaia and the beach at Lekeitio. As the house is an old farmhouse one of our party did occasionally suffer with asthma. Mertxe our host was very helpful.

Great stay in seaside basque town

5 of 5
Stayed for a week in this clean nice flat with seaview in two directions and both morning and evening sun to enjoy. Well equipped. Close to the beaches. Close to supermarkets and pinxos bars. Very hospitable owners who can help you get a flying start of your vacation with tips and recommendations. We had a splendid time here and would recommend it to anyone contemplating a stay in Getaria.
