San Sebastian is probably one of the nicest cities all around Europe. Surrounded by green mountains, with the Cantabric Sea waves breaking into the Bay Area and the Urumea river. 

As you may know, Guipuzcoa (region of the Basque country where San Sebastian is located), is among the top three European regions in the ranking of Michelin rated restaurants. In the manin town and near San Sebastian, there are six Michelin star rated restaurants. If you plan to visit any of these expensive restaurants (Arzak, Akelarre, Mugaritz, Martin Berasategui, Zuberoa Kursaal or kokotxa), you should make a reservation early in advance. Do also enjoy the new cuisine of San Sebastian Old Quarter (Parte vieja) bars and restaurants with the Tapas called Pintxos (in basque language). 

Wow, Isn't it a nice spot.... I am sure you would love it !! 

Reyes Catolicos famous street

Forget the traffic of other European cities and visit any place walking or biking. For avid sports people, enjoy nature golf courses in the waterfront (like Zarautz or Biarritz), play tennis in clay courts overlooking the bay (Ondarreta public tennis Club), surf the wawes the whole year at walking distance, ride the whole bay with your bike through a dedicated bike lane....

Main bedroom 5th floor

There is no other place in the world to enjoy walking and biking while you buy the freshest fish in the port and markets, wonderful vegetables from the country, and other manufactures from basque artisans (sandals, tableclothes, bed linen, towels,….). Shopping is superb as you can walk through a lot of pedestrian streets (almost 70% of Downtown San Sebastian is just for pedestrians or bicycles).

The climate has changed over the years and now you can enjoy many warm and sunny days to sport or walk around. However, in the event of having rain, there are many trips around to enjoy. Among others you could visit the famous Gugenheim museum at Bilbao (less than an hour highway driving), the new Chillida Leku Sculpture Museum at Hernani (20 minutes from the city), the state of the art full covered Aquarium with sharks (15 minutes walking from the house), the Igueldo´s entertainment park set in a mountain with amazing views of the Bay (10 minutes biking plus 5 minutes in trolley), and many others.

San Sebastian is a very dynamic city. The whole year round, there are many festivals and fiestas like the classic Tamborrada (January).
Summer season is very extensive and amusing: Early in July, we enjoy the Jazz Festival If you come early in the month, you could visit the world famous San Fermín bull runs (encierros) at Pamplona (45 minutes highway driving) Don´t miss San Sebastian´s Main Week in August (Semana Grande) where there is a world famous fireworks championship in the Bay and you could also go to a bullfighting show at the Illumbe´s covered bull-ring.

Enjoy a great breakfast in the 5th floor roof deck !!

September is also a very active month: famous actors come to the International Film Festival at the Kursaal emblematic architectural complex ( and the city vibrates with the unique Trainera Regata Deep Boat Race at the Bay. Horse racing in Lasarte is a must.

France is just half an hour from San Sebastian, and there are three very special close towns to visit: Saint Jean de Luz, Bayonne and Biarritz. Hendaye is also very nice with a large sandy beach, and you can cross by boat from the Spanish town Fuenterrabia. Beaches, golf courses and long shopping pedestrian walks are waiting for you.
