Make a holiday apartment in San Sebastian, Spain your home away from home

The beautiful Basque Country city of San Sebastian is situated on Spain’s north eastern coast, close to the border with France.

Holiday apartments in San Sebastian are a popular choice for families, friends and couples who want to combine a beach holiday with history and culture.

Things to do on holiday in San Sebastian, Spain

Once you’ve visited San Sebastian it is easy to see why this city is such an appealing holiday destination! The two main large beaches are family friendly and are situated just steps away from many holiday apartments in San Sebastian, and all the city’s attractions. The larger of the beaches is on La Concha Bay, a beautiful horseshoe shaped bay where an island takes centre stage, and, being a bay the waters are a little calmer here than might be expected. In contrast, La Zurriola Beach to the east of the old town is a popular surfing and watersports beach as the waves here are bigger.

The tourist info office is centrally located in the city and has a wealth of San Sebastian tourist info available on the well known and not so well known city attractions. Some of those well known attractions include hiking up to the statue of Christ, which is set at the top of the mountain between the city’s two main beaches. The views from the top are breathtaking. Miramar Palace is one of San Sebastian’s popular attractions and was built in 1894. This royal country house is set in beautiful grounds. The Tourist Land Train runs visitors along the promenade, and in the evenings this same promenade makes the ideal place to enjoy a romantic stroll, following an excellent dinner.

In terms of restaurants San Sebastian has some fantastic ones, many of which specialise in the popular local Basque cuisine, said to be amongst the best in Spain. If you wish to experience the famous Basque cuisine, San Sabastian's restuarants are the place to go.

Although buses were available we walked everywhere for a fortnight- even from the bus station when we arrived. Mikal was unable to greet us but his friend provided an excellent service in his stead throughout our stay.The washer/dryer was useful and the bed extremely comfortable. We had taken pack up macs but there is a very useful large umbrella in the apartment. We would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and relatives and would love to return ourselves. San Sebastian is compartmentalised into different areas. We mainly used the old town (Parte Vielja), The Central/Romantic area, Gros and parts of Egia. All seem to have their own cultural centre. We used pinxto bars, restaurants, parks, cultural centres to see cinema and dance, beaches (large,flat, sandy and quiet! although we were there mid September) gardens, museums, lovely shops (very many independent) and local food markets. The whole area feels safe and is easy walking.We found the river Urumea a constant source of entertainment (changing tides and fish activity). Our favourites: Koh tao bar( opposite the flat). Morgan's restaurant (in the Old Town). Simisirri Bar (close to the church in the old town.) It also does a few gluten free Pinxtos if you need them! Christina Enea park (for a shady walk.) There seemed to be good facilities for wheelchairs and we commonly saw guests being easily accommodated in eateries and cultural facilities.

The position was sensational overlooking Getaria harbour and so close to the delights of the Getaria fishing village. Of course the beach was a huge hit for our granddaughter Miguel was very obliging and very prompt with our enguiries The Villa itself is a lovely house with all amenities including our very own charcoal BBQ so we could cook like the locals Only small criticisms were WiFi slow and not much range,no bathroom on the top floor and perhaps when it get hot in July fly screens would be handy Villa Embil has our highest recommendation and we can't wait to return to the beautiful view and garden Thanks Miguel
