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 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.

A spacious house with beautiful views and an excellent location.

5 of 5
We stayed for a week with a family of 5 - including a 20, 16 and 13 year old. We were warmly welcomed by Lourdes, the owner, who was really helpful and had excellent English. The house was spacious, cool and relaxing. This has been a family home, and not a soulless IKEA showhouse done purely for tourists - some of the appliances are not brand new, but everything is fully functional. The kitchen is well equipped, with an excellent induction hob, and there is a fridge, freezer, small dishwasher etc etc. The teenagers were very pleased that the wifi was excellent(!) - for younger children there is a huge garden with a playhouse and lots of ride-on toys, dolls prams provided. We loved sitting outside on the patio, surrounded by amazing scenery. The location was excellent - just a few minutes to the local town of Amurrio, which has everything you really need, plus a direct train line into Bilbao. The coast is only an hour away (we especially enjoyed the surf beach at Sopela, but there are more sheltered beaches for those with younger children). There is a national park on the doorstep, a nature reserve with walks/cycling at Vitoria-Gasteiz, and Lourdes has carefully put together a trail around some local beauty spots and places of intererst - the lake at Marono was a fantastic picnic/bbq spot completely unknown to tourists. The property is easy to find. and get to and from, being just off the main A-624 road. This road does cause some noise - we didn't find it instrusive, but if you really object to road noise this may not be the house for you. We thought it was an excellent property however, and would happily come back again.
