Experience San Sebastián in holiday homes to rent

A jewel in the Basque Country, San Sebastian is one of the most famous resort towns on the Bay of Biscay. It's cute and cozy, with cobblestone streets in its historic town centre and tons of boutiques, bars and restaurants. It's also beachy and bright, with sandy shores primed for surfers and sunbathers. It's also cultured and contemporary, thanks to its museums and architecture. Vacationers, beach lovers and honeymooners who book San Sebastian vacation rentals don't regret it, if they ever come home at all.

Things to do

Sightseeing near San Sebastián holiday rentals

For a small seaside city, San Sebastian has an incredible selection of big-time attractions. The San Telmo Museoa is an art and history museum that explores everything from Basque history to contemporary art and features a 16th-century convent with a restored church and cloister. If the younger people in your party (or the art-fatigued) grow weary, they'll be jolted awake at San Sebastian's Aquarium. Its deep-ocean and coral-reef exhibits are set behind giant panes of glass that make visitors feel like they're swimming with the sharks.


Things to do near San Sebastián holiday homes

San Sebastian vacation rentals offer access to a captivating coastline. Playa de la Concha is the most popular beach and perhaps the most perfect, with calm waters and picture postcard views of the bay. Dive into the famous culinary scene with traditional Basque tapas (pintxos) at a seaside bar or a multi-course meal at a posh restaurant. If you time your visit right, you can catch a flick at the International Film Festival in September or revel in one of the other art, food or music festivals that take over the city throughout the year.


Best time to travel to San Sebastián holiday homes

The moist, breezy oceanic climate bathes San Sebastian in moderate temperatures and cloudy conditions. Winters are cool but never too cold, with the lowest lows safely above freezing. Just remember to pack an umbrella if you plan a trip between October and February. Summers are drier, sunnier and warmer, of course, with high temps topping out in the upper 20s in August. Summer and early autumn are peak seasons for vacationers, so if you're looking for more elbow room and lower prices on San Sebastian vacation rentals, try booking in late autumn or spring.

Natural highlights

Seaside splendour and waterfalls in the wild

San Sebastian's sandy beaches and ocean breezes are some of its best features. Playa de la Concha is beloved by families and tanning experts, while Playa de la Zurriola is where surfers score mighty waves. Parque de Cristina Enea offers a more curated taste of nature, with its walking paths lined with ornamental plants and towering red sequoias. Head inland toward the Artikutza forest in the Aiako Harria Nature Reserve for something wilder. It's a treasure trove of beech, oak and yew trees, and its hiking trails wind past waterfalls and up steep mountainsides.
