Beaches and Basque food—indulge in both!

Nestled along the shores of the Bay of Biscay, your San Sebastian vacation rental puts you right in the heart of Basque Country. Home to scores of world-renowned restaurants, the city is a foodie heaven for those in search of gourmet Basque cuisine. But one of the top draws to San Sebastian remains its beautiful beaches, where sunseekers can bask on the sandy shores or frolic in the surf. Just make sure you bring an umbrella because, despite its reputation as a beach destination, the region gets more than a little wet at times.

Beach blanket bingo—fun under the San Sebastian sun

The only thing more relaxing than your San Sebastian vacation rental may be a day at the beach. You'll find plenty of lounge chairs for rent and you can bring a picnic to add to your day of leisure. If you're looking for something a bit more adventurous, try your hand at surfing, water skiing, or kayaking. There's also a host of nearby tennis and squash courts for an added workout. Surrounding hillsides offer easy trails and some even feature bars so you can pause for a drink while taking in the view.

Peacocks and pintxos—just another day in San Sebastian

Nature is on display at Cristina Enea Park, where you'll share sprawling lawns with colorful peacocks on parade. If you're in search of even more wildlife, pay a visit to the city's aquarium, where sharks swim overhead in glass tunnels. Art lovers should carve out time for a trip to the San Telmo Museum, which highlights Basque artwork throughout the ages. Looking for some late-night activity? Then make your way to Old Town, where bustling bars stay open late to serve drinks and tapas-like snacks called pintxos, as you dine in the shadow of the Neo-Gothic spires of San Sebastian Cathedral.

The rain in Spain stays mainly... in San Sebastian

San Sebastian is no stranger to rain with the city getting nearly 65 inches each year. You should always pack an umbrella just to be safe but particularly if you've booked a San Sebastian vacation rental between October and January, the region's wettest period. While the city may be damp during the winter, daytime highs average a comfortable 55 degrees. The spring and fall seasons bring mild temperatures in the high 60s, but it's noticeably drier and sunnier in the summer months, when pleasant temperatures typically top out in the high 70s.

From beach bums to birdwatchers, nature caters to everyone

San Sebastian is one giant playground for lovers of the great outdoors, as the city's pristine beaches and sparkling blue waters are surrounded by emerald green hillsides. The River Urumea flows through the heart of the city as well, with numerous parks offering waterfront views. It's also just a 30-minute drive to Aiako Harria Nature Reserve, a 17-acre green space set at the foothills of the majestic Pyrenees Mountains and a popular spot in the winter for migrating birds. Connect with nature in the preserve, where mountains and gullies are dotted with babbling brooks and sprawling oak groves.
