San Sebastian

Basque Beaches ....

... a foodie hotspot.

European City of cuture 2016 and home to some of the world’s most talented chefs with the most Michelin stars per capita in the world, San Sebastian hosts international jazz, film and firework festivals. It exudes a vibrant, indulgent lifestyle with pintxo bars, siestas and fiestas!

Only a stones throw from Biarritz and yet a different ambience all together. This city has attitude!

Food and wine are predominant topics of conversation as you stroll the old town and savour its bars of mouthwateringly artistic pintxos. The Rio Urumea is lined with lavish mansion buildings with views to die for.. such as Playa de la Concha- a perfectly round, stunning, turquoise bay that lies beckoning in those hot summer months.

Surf is just round the corner on Playa Gros where the effervescent youth catch the perfect wave.

Downtown is cosmopolitan chic for shop-lovers and restaurant-lovers alike and when the sun goes down, this city is cool and happening by night. Never a dull moment in this charming and atmospheric city by the sea.

Four reasons to choose San Sebastian


A city filled with people who love to indulge. Tapas are works of art here and a must with the local Txakoli, bustling restaurants in the old town offering amazingly fresh produce amid 3 star Michelin restaurants where gastronomy meets another dimension. Basque social clubs where only the men can cook and a cookery school now world-famous. Mouth-watering fun !


The Spanish Basques love to party and almost every weekend there is something going on in San Sebastian – whether a sporting event (crazy about that too), a gastronomic festival, film or jazz, you will be drawn into the atmosphere as people line the tapas bars in the old town and treat you as a local. A friendly nation keen to show off the richness of their local customs.

The Beach

San Sebastian boasts the perfectly crescent-shaped, golden Concha bay. Take the cable car to the top of Igeldo and you get the best panoramic view of one of the best European beaches. Lined with beautiful and historic buildings, it is the perfect holiday location. Or try your surfing techniques on the smaller beach of Zurriola where laid-back charm takes over from millionaires’ row.


San Sebastian never sleeps ! There is atmosphere at any time, day or night. Hit the Old Town and live the tapas experience ( known as Pintxos here). Or go to the Gros district which has a younger, more eclectic scene and vibrant music. And if that’s not enough there is the cathedral district filled with chic restaurants and bars.
