Fantastic Apartment Base for Visiting Basque Country
We couldn't have been happier with our stay here. The apartment is very well appointed, clean, and spacious. Jorge is very accommodating and thorough in his assistance in whatever you may need. The building is absolutely charming and some 350 years old! We loved staying in Pasaia, a wonderful little village on the bay. Lots of bars and restaurants down the historic little avenue that runs through the town. You are only a few doors down from Victor Hugo's apartment! Parking is free, and while it can be hard to find a spot close at times, walking is kinda part of the charm of being in Europe. You are about 15 minutes by car from downtown San Sebastian and about 15 minutes from the French border. There is a little grocery directly next door for all your basic needs. I would happily stay here again.
Thank you very much for your words. For us it was a plesure to have your nice family at our home and help to you to have a memorable stay.
I hope see you again.
Just like the pictures, only better!
We loved our stay at this property and the village of Paisai Donibane. Jorge was very nice to us upon arrival and helped us find a parking spot. He even carried our baggage up for us! When we left he arranged an early morning taxi for us, which we really appreciated as we did not know who to call. The property is very special. The living room windows are a view to the life of the town. We saw musicians marching up and down the street playing the penny whistle and drums, a little girls confirmation at the church outside the window, people visiting pintos bar a few doors down and just the flow of the townspeople and visitors. There is a little grocery right next door, which is perfect for bread, jamon, fruit and anything you might need. The restaurant Txulotxo, Jorge recommended was great. Make reservations for any restaurant as they are very popular and crowded. The ferry and then the bus E9, was the perfect way to get into San Sebastian. We even had a rental car, but took the ferry instead. E9 bus takes you right near the historic part of San Sebastian. We had a fire, which made the rainy nite very cozy. Everything is fully equipped.
Although, if you need to dry your clothes, it will be on the clothesline outside. Our only problem was finding a parking spot. The town has a parking lot, which is always full (at least when we went) so you must park further toward harbor parking lot. Thank you Jorge!
10 days in Euskadi at the same time as the rain disappeared and the sun shined all day.
Donibane is a beautiful little city. We have been around a lot, and the staying was perfect for that. The house had all we needed, so thanks for that.
Beautiful flat in picturesque village setting
Quaint and picturesque setting in old fishing village near San Sebastian. Easy to get to town on wonderful pedestrian ferry and short bus ride to town. Apartment was great, fully equipped with everything you could need. Owner was very helpful. Would love to come back again some time when the region isn't being hit by torrential rain!
We had a wonderful time in Pasaia Donibane. I was attending a medical meeting in San Sebastian (Donostia), which is nearby. I was initially hesitant because it was about 4 km from the meeting site. However, there is a wonderful little people ferry which takes you over to the other side of the harbor in 90 seconds, and then I took a bus which took another 25 minutes into San Sebastian--all very easy. Many good restaurants. Jorge was very helpful, and speaks good English. We did the 5 hour St. James walk (highly recommended) from San Sebastian, and it ended up going by the apartment! The apartment has downstairs and upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms--all very nice and clean, and just as advertised. Overall, highly recommended.
Thank you very much
Nice to meet you
El piso es acogedor, espacioso, de corte muy original, especialmente con la escalera que lleva de la sala de estar al piso superior, tan bello como el inferior. Una buena vivienda para quién quer pasar unas vacaciones muy agradables.
Se sitúa al comienzo de la calle central del casco histórico de Pasai Donibane, muy estrecha, con arcos, bares, buenos restaurantes y una plaza mayor agradable.
De allá se puede fácilmente ir de autobús al centro de San Sebástian, un trayecto plazeroso, sobre todo si para ello se escoja cruzar la bahía de balsa.
También se pueden hacer muchas excursiones o caminadas en las cercanías, a la muntaña, y hasta a los balnearios de la Francia, muy cerca.
Muy recomendable para los amigos de un lugar auténtico, antíguo y original, con muchas posibilidades.
Located in a historic village with fishing tradition in the town of San Juan flights, full of fishermen's houses and stately. This is a two-centuries-old recently restored, combining original building elements with contemporary decor. The building is located between the main street of San Juan flights and the edge of the pier in the bay. Three km. San Sebastian and 15km from Hondarribia and France is a great location to plan trips, and enjoy the local culture. The village is situated at the foot of Mount Jaizkibel, thereby enabling the outputs from one's home environments of great beauty on the coast (Mount Jaizkibel to Hondarribia, and mount Ulia to San Sebastian). In the town itself there is a small bay, in addition to the famous beaches of San Sebastián and Hondarribia. The town is famous for its traditional cuisine, with many restaurants specialize in fish, and 'drifters' traditional rowing. In this accommodation you can enjoy the tranquility of a small fishing village with pedestrian streets, ten minutes from the city of San Sebastian.
