San Sebastián & Bilbao

With a beautiful beach curving around a vast bay, a glittering international film festival and a dazzling line-up of Michelin-starred restaurants, San Sebastián can justly lay claim to being Spain’s most glamorous city.

The Basques have long been renowned for their cuisine, but San Sebastián, even by Basque standards, is obsessed with food. Its fantastically comprehensive gastronomic line-up ranges from spit-and-sawdust counter bars to sumptuous three-starred restaurants.

You won’t want to miss a stroll through the charming old town, where the countertops in the tapas bars are heaped high with platters of elaborate pintxos, and you can walk off the calories with a stroll up Monte Igueldo to admire the panoramic views.

The elegant city of Bilbao, about an hour’s drive west, is home to the celebrated Guggenheim Museum, as well as quirky sights such as the Alhóndiga, a converted wine-warehouse-cum-cultural centre designed by Philippe Stark.

We can arrange accommodation in the beautiful Basque region, escort you around the best boutique wineries, and introduce you to the celebrated, yet secretive, gastronomic societies. Just get in touch and we’ll come up with the perfect itinerary!
