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.

We stayed in this wonderful apartment for 3 nights and loved every minute exploring Bilbao. The location is perfect in the heart of the old town and a one minute walk to the river. Communication with Jose was excellent, from the booking to being welcomed warmly at the apartment. I spent many hours researching accommodation and we could not have been happier with our choice. Jose had thought of everything, even down to factor 50 sun cream in the bathroom cabinet. There is no need for a taxi from the airport. Jose’s directions were simple to follow using public transport. Highly recommended.

A delightful property with wonderful views.

4 of 5
I must say first impression were not good as we wound our way from the main road up a narrow twisting track to reach the property. However despite this negative we had a wonderful time in this charming cabin. We used it as a base to explore the Basque countryside from San Sebastion to Bilbao. Our hostess Loren was extremely helpful and provided us with all we required. It should be mentioned that the sleeping arrangements on the mezzanine are not really great for a relatively elderly couple and we made use of the sofa bed. This is an excellent base for those who want a quiet and peaceful time whilst enjoying the vista provided.
