Situated close to the French border, the Basque city of San Sebastian may be small in size, but it’s absolutely packed to the gills with fantaistc gastronomy, lovely beaches and more cultural events and festivals than you can shake a stick at!
Long Weekend in San Sebastian
I’ve managed to put together a fantastic deal to the city using Hotels.com and Skyscanner, meaning that you’ve got your accommodation and flights sorted with this deal. You’ll actually be flying to the French city of Biarritz since it’s a lot cheaper than flying to San Sebastian (which also comes with a stopover!). But you’ll find that arranging transfers between the two cities is actually very straightforward with loads of coaches running – takes around an hour to drive!
You’ll be staying at the fantastic 4* Zenit San Sebastian – super modern, super stylish and super comfortable! It’s a great place that puts you within easy reach of the centre yet still offers plenty of relaxation after a busy day of sightseeing. It takes about 20 – 30 minutes to walk to the centre, and on-site you’ll find a cool rooftop terrace and a stylish bar and restaurant.
San Sebastian is a renowned centre of cuisine, bringing together both Spanish and Basque traditions. You should definitely try some pintxos, the Basque equivalent of tapas – you’ll come across loads of little bars and taverns where you can try this. After a busy day of checking out the gorgeous architecture and wicked museums, why not head to the beach or take a walk up to the top of Monte Urgull or Monte Igueldo where you can enjoy some stunning views of the region?
