A nice flat in San Sebastian in the Basque Country

We are a family of five, with a 16-year-old daughter and two boys, 13 and 11 year old. However, we typically travel only with the two oldest, because the youngest needs special care. We travel with intervac when he goes to a camp.
We are NOT SMOKERS. Not smoker people only, please.

We live in a comfortable flat. It is 100 square metres, with 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, kitchen, living room, a little balcony and terrace. All the rooms have natural light with windows to the exterior. The kitchen is fully equipped, including microwave and dishwasher. Wifi is available.
We have a private garage reachable by the elevator of the building, but honestly, here a car it is not necessary at all. Public transport are so reliable and with convenient timetables specially in summertime. We could provide you a bus card to charge and get around the city or to go to the villages by bus or train.

The flat is very well located in the city. Our neighborhood is new and totally safe, close to the beaches and to the centre of the town. There are some restaurants which offer menus, with terraces.The centre and beaches are reached easily by foot, but frequent bus service is also close by. Actually we usually go to the centre on foot or cycling.
Additionally, a car rental office is located within 3-5 minutes walking.

Our family dispose a "TOLDO" on the beach, on the Concha beach. This is a specific space on the beach with an awning to have shade and 4 chairs. The staff called toldero put the awning when you arrive to the beach. You can use it whenever you want. It is very convenient :)
On the beaches there are changing rooms with hot shower services by an affordable cost . We sometimes use them.
A lovely excursion is to go on a picnic to Santa Clara island by boat from the harbour or even swimming to the island from the beach.
You can try paddle surf, canoeing, sailing, there are some clubs on the beach with different offers.

The closest airport is Bilbao airport. There are a bus service to Donostia with wide timetables. The bus station is near our home. Biarritz airport is close and with bus service too.

San Sebastian- Donostia is a beautiful small to mid-size city in the Basque Country of Spain. The city is perfect for walking around.It provides plenty of activities, great restaurants and bars. We have 2 beautiful beaches that are very safe for swimmers and a 3rd beach is very popular with surfers.

Short excursions from San Sebastian can be Bilbao, where the Guggenheim museum is located, or any of the many quaint small villages, some in France such as Biarritz, Saint Jean de Luz, or Hendaia. One can go by car, but very close to the flat are the new bus station with numerous services to these places. In July there is a Jazz Festival - the Jazzaldia - and in August the town festival - la Semana Grande Donostiarra - with its famous fireworks and week-long activities. In September we have the well-known International Film Festival attended by lots of celebrities.

 *************************++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++********************************

Somos una familia de 5, 1 niña de 16 años y 2 niños de 13 y 11 años. Habitualmente viajamos con los dos mayores, ya que el pequeño tiene necesidades especiales. Aprovechamos para viajar con intervac cuando él se va a un campamento.
Somos no fumadores, sólo no fumadores por favor.

Vivimos en un cómodo piso de salón, cocina, 3 dormitorios, 2 baños, un balconcito y una terraza. Todas las habitaciones son exteriores. La cocina dispone de microondas y lavavajillas. Disponemos de WIFI.
Tenemos un garage privado al que se accede por medio del ascensor de la vivienda, aunque sinceramente el coche no es necesario. Os podríamos proporcionar una tarjeta que puede ser recargada para desplazarse por la ciudad e incluso a los pueblo, Bilbao, Vitoria , en tren... (es una tarjeta única). El horario de autobuses urbanos es muy amplio, especialmente en verano.

Nuestra familia dispone de un "toldo " en la playa de la Concha, un pequeño espacio reservado en la playa con sillas y sombra. Cuando llegas le pides al toldero que te lo monte. Vosotros podrías usarlo también, es muy cómodo. En la playa hay un servicio de cabinas y duchas calientes por un precio módico.
Se puede ir a la isla de Sta Clara a pasar el día en barco desde el puerto o nadando desde la playa. Todos los veranos vamos.

El barrio es muy agradable y seguro, con todos los servicios y muchos parques. Es posible ir al centro y a las playas andando cómodamente, pero también hay un popular servicio de autobuses urbanos que funciona muy bien.
San Sebastian-Donostia es una ciudad con muchos atractivos, a lo largo del año hay multitud de festivales, Jazz, cine...,actividades culturales y 3 playas, dos muy seguras para nadar y pasear, y la tercera muy popular entre los surfistas. Las 3 con todos los servicios.

Es una ciudad pequeña, muy cómoda para recorrer a pie.
La casa está situada muy cerca de la nueva Estación de Autobuses desde donde es posible realizar muchas excursiones a bonitos pueblos como Zarautz, Hondarribia..., ciudades como Bilbao, incluso a Francia, ( Biarritz, Saint-Jean-de-Luz, Hendaia...)
También próxima a la vivienda hay una oficina de alquiler de coches.
