MOUNTAINS OR SEA? CULTURE...? GASTRONOMY...? COME TO THE BASQUE COUNTRY!
We offer one of these possibilities:a bright and cosy flat in the heart of the Basque Country (located in Tolosa, the main town of a green valley plenty of beautiful fields, mountains and rural small villages) or a comfortable, bright and spacious house located in Altzo, a small rural village 10 min. drive from Tolosa. One or the other can be the ideal place to spend your holidays with your family, and enjoy activities such as walking, hiking, cycling...or visiting other attractive places very closed to us:
-San Sebastian (30 minutes drive), a beautiful city with 3 long sandy beaches, cultural activities and well known gastronomy...http://www.sansebastianturismo.com/

The flat is convenient located, just next to the bus stop and very near to the train station (5 min. walk). In Tolosa you can find all the services you need (18000 inahabitants) and a nice market with local products! The house in Altzo has a garden and open space to have lunch or just relax.
