Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Irun, Spain your home away from home

Irun is a historic town in Spain’s Basque Country, very close to the border with France. This autonomous community has many distinctive cultural elements, and together with a totally unique language, has developed its own wonderful cuisine down the centuries. There is impressive natural scenery to be found in the region around Irun holiday villas, along with some lovely beaches that visitors who prefer slightly cooler climes might prefer.

Things to do in Irun, Spain

Irun is a town built on one of ancient Rome’s most important western urban centres. And today you can see many of the artefacts uncovered here at the Hermitage of Sant Elna. This building, a short way from Irun holiday accommodation, is built upon a Roman necropolis. The Santa Maria del Junkal church is also highly impressive, with its magnificent facades and vaults.

The scenery just outside the town is picturesque, and typical for northern Spain, with vibrant greenery and rugged hills. The Penas de Aya natural park, a few kilometres from apartments in Irun, is home to spectacular mountain landscapes. The park is criss-crossed by numerous trails so you can explore the peaks and valleys with relative ease. It’s a must for anyone hoping to get in touch with the natural beauty of the Basque Country around holiday apartments in Irun.

The beaches close to holiday accommodation in Irun are also stunning, and offer excellent conditions for surfers. Average temperatures in this part of Spain are a little lower than in other Spanish regions, so a villa in Irun could serve as a base for a beach holiday if you find the costas a little too hot.

Places to visit on holiday in Irun, Spain

The city of San Sebastian is a mere half-hour drive from self-catering villas in Irun, and offers the perfect blend of historical landmarks and modern amenities. The beaches here are also impressive – the San Sebastian waterfront boasts one of Europe’s most celebrated urban beaches. It’s also an ideal place to sample Basque cuisine, with Pintxos (similar in many ways to tapas) served at every bar in the old town.

Weather in Irun, Spain

Irun rental villas are set within a region of the country known as “Green Spain”. This is due to its moderate temperatures and higher rainfall. Winters here are generally cool and wet, while the summer months bring much more sunshine and beach weather in July and August.

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.
