About our home

20-year old apartment in excellent condition. 2 bedrooms with double beds (1.35m width); 1 office with 1-person futon-type sofa bed. High-speed internet, wifi & free landline phone calls within Spain. New, fully-equipped kitchen, newly remodeled bathroom and spacious living room. Lots of natural light. Neighbours on all sides (good people). Our building is on a hill, about a 35-minute walk from the sea, but with a bus stop just a few steps away.

Google maps makes it look like there's a major motorway next door. That is NOT the case!

More about us

  1. I'm Carol, a 64-year-old freelance translator and tour guide, born in California and living in San Sebastian since 1987. My husband, Patxi, is a computer nerd employed by the Basque department of statistics. We're interested in exchanges in Europe and elsewhere. We love both outdoors and city stuff: architecture, museums, food... We're easy-going and love meeting people (although my husband does better in Spanish than English). We've had several very successful house exchanges over the years including Amsterdam, London, Nantes, Stockholm, Ottawa, Copenhagen, Rome, and various cities in Spain - and hope to have many more.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Our apartment sits on a hill in the neighborhood of Egia in the seaside city of Donostia-San Sebastian in the Basque region of Spain. 20 to 30-minute walk (downhill) to beaches and center. Fabulous food, theater, cinema, Jazz Festival in July (http://www.jazzaldia.com), International Film Festival in Sept (http://www.sansebastianfestival.com).
Donostia is now one of the world's most highly regarded culinary meccas. Pintxo (tapa) bars abound, as do all manner of restaurants.
Great walking city, very lively old town. 20 kms from French border on the Bay of Biscay; 80 kms from Bilbao & the Guggenheim Museum (among many other wonderful things in Bilbao). Pyrenees mountains are also nearby. The northern (coastal) branch of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route (Way of St James) runs through San Sebastian.
In addition to my own pictures posted here, you'll find countless pics on the Internet of San Sebastian, Bilbao, and the Basque Country.
