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.

Basque Bliss!

5 of 5
Javier and Miguel were the perfect hosts, and we loved our stay in their wonderful home in the Basque region of Spain. The house is spacious, gorgeously decorated and has a large, attractive garden. There is on site parking, good wi-fi and the kitchen well equipped. Three spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms ensured that even with two couples and two children we had plenty of room. We loved the outdoor BBQ/Wood grill, and cooked and ate outside often. Situated five minutes drive from the Lasarte Metro, where there is free parking, you can catch a 20 minute train into the heart of San-Sebastian, culinary capital of Spain. You can also take the coastal road West, and visit the myriad of wonderful coastal towns and beautiful beaches. We would wholeheartedly recommend this special house to anyone. Thank you Javier and Miguel for a magical stay. We will be back next year!

Excellent stay

5 of 5
Could not be in a better location! Right in the doortstep of the old town in a quiet block, the beach is at the end of the street and the newer shopping precinct(zara etc) only a few minutes walk away. Immaculate apartment with new appliances and bathroom. Comfortable beds with good pillows and fresh linen. Maria was very great to deal with. Would recommend this apartment to anyone.
