Make a holiday apartment in Gros your home away from home

Whether you’re visiting San Sebastián for culinary indulgence or an action-packed surf trip, HomeAway has an exciting choice of apartments in Gros. It’s an elegant neigbourhood, full of late-19th Century architecture on elevated ground by the east bank of the Urumea River. When it comes to eating out, you’ll be spoiled for choice at a Gros holiday home, with a fabulous choice of restaurants and pintxos bars in this part of the city. Holiday homes in Gros are suitably upmarket, with sleek, well-equipped interiors and often enjoy knockout vistas of the city or coast.

Things to do

-Beaches. La Zurriola beach is walking distance, and offers lively surf, making it perfect for a range of beach sports. Head to the other side of the Urumea River and you’ll be at La Concha, San Sebastián’s main city beach, which is a long arc of golden sand, with slightly more tranquil waters. La Concha is attended by lifeguards, and there are parasols, sunbeds and showers all around the bay.

-Architecture. As San Sebastián underwent a lot of development in the late-19th Century, the city’s architecture has a French Belle Epoque air. This is exemplified by the city hall, which was actually the Grand Casino from 1897 to 1924. Miramar Palace was built for the Spanish royal family and is also from this period – from the manicured lawns you can look out over El Pico de Lorro, a rocky outcrop.

-Nature. The impressive natural beauty around San Sebastián, combined with the city’s mild climate, make active tourism part of many visitors’ itineraries. For instance, there are four places to rent bicycles in the city – you could head along the coast to discover pristine, wild beaches or into the hills that form the city’s backdrop. The best views can be had from Monte Igueldo, although it’s most convenient to take the 100-year-old funicular up to the summit here.

-Cuisine. The Basque Country is widely celebrated for its sublime cuisine, and, with 16 in total, San Sebastián has more Michelin stars per square metre than any other city in the world. There’s also great food to be had if you’re on a budget, and the Gros area has lots of pintxos bars. Pintxos are essentially Basque tapas – delicate and imaginative open sandwiches held together by toothpicks.

-Surfing. At Gros you can surf on San Sebastián’s waterfront – La Zurriola has good waves, and offers equipment rental, as well as short courses for all ability levels. If you’d like some variety then you could make the 20 kilometre drive west to Zarautz, which boasts one of Spain’s best surf beaches, in a gorgeous spot, framed by rugged green hills.

Weather in Gros

One of the reasons San Sebastián has been favoured by generations of wealthy Spanish tourists is because of the mild climate. If you come to a Gros apartment in mid-summer then you can expect comfortable, warm temperatures in the mid-20s. Summer is the driest season, but there’s still some nourishing rainfall, helping the landscape keep its characteristic shade of lush green. The remainder of the year is temperate and relatively damp, and frosts are rare, even in December and January.

Travel to Gros

If you’re flying from the UK to your self-catering accommodation in Gros then Biarritz-Anglet-Bayonne Airport (BIQ) is the nearest international air destination to San Sebastián.

If you are coming to the San Sebastián area I heartily recommend you use this place as a base. The host, Joxeanjel was charming and could not do enough for us. The house itself is secluded, secure with lovely grounds. The facilities are excellent with all possible needs catered for. Joxeanjel also recommended a visit to Zuberoa, a wonderful, charming Michelin Star restaurant within two minutes' walk of the house. A lovely, small discreet restaurant with a nice homely feel, lovely relaxed service from a very well-informed, friendly team who put us at ease. I particularly liked the fact that they had an extensive wine list (book!) with wines to suit every budget, not always the case in 'fine dining' restaurants and were so helpful in helping us make the right choice. And the food was amazing too! 😊. The house is around a 20 minute drive to the heart of the beautiful San Sebastián and its beaches. The house is surrounded by lovely countryside with lots of countryside walk and hill walks. There is a 15km cycle path which runs close by which takes priority over the cars. Excellent! All in all the perfect escape for a large family or group (we were 12) Thank You!

                                                                                                      This was a lovely big roomy house so well equipped for us travelling from Ireland. There was no piece of cooking equipment or crockery I can think of that this kitchen didn't have. There was sugar, salt, cooking oil, washing up liquid and some dishwasher tablets. There were no shortage of dishes for our large party of eight. There were 4 bedrooms and a large area at the top of the house with curtains as a fifth sleeping area. When we arrived the weather was raining for two days so we found the house damp and cold so we lit a fire the first two nights. The weather improved and it was nice then to have a cool house. The road to the house is hilly and narrow but ok to walk on because it is so quiet. It is about one Km uphill from the village. Further on from the house is a fab view back over San Sebastián. Telmo was very helpful with ideas of places to visit locally and restaurants. The first evening we went to a local restaurant which was supposed to reopen in the evening time but it remained closed!! No fault of Telmo. I would love to visit again some day.
