San Sebastian The elegant resort + Guggenheim 5 days

We’ve been fans of this beautiful city for over 40 years, ever since our first tour there in 1971 (7 days - £29!!). We’ve been back at various times since and doubtless we’ll continue to visit in future years. This Autumn Break packs a great deal into the time available and you’ll have a close view of the Basque Country which, like other Green Spain regions, is the ideal holiday destination with superb beaches backed by green hills and mountains and stunning scenery.

We’ll set off from Plymouth’s Millbay Docks at 1545 on the flagship cruise-ferry “Pont Aven” to sail to Santander on Spain’s north coast. When we land in Spain on Monday at 1215 we drive out of the city and eastwards to the Basque Region. Our first sightseeing stop will be in the pretty port and resort of Castro Urdiales. We resume our drive in the mid-afternoon and will reach the Hotel San Sebastian in the Ondaretta district near the beach of that name. We’ll check in for two nights on half-board terms. A buffet breakfast starts the day and dinner with wine ends it.
On Tuesday we set off towards France and drop into Hondarribia by the border to spend the morning. We return for a full afternoon at leisure in lovely San Sebastian. Dinner at the hotel this evening.
We leave on Wednesday after breakfast and travel west to the major city of the region,Bilbao. We include a visit to the famous Guggenheim Museum and afterwards you are free to explore the city. In the late afternoon we resume our drive to Santander for final sightseeing. Take the opportunity to sample some “tapas” before we board the ship for the 2115 sailing to England. Enjoy the cruise homewards on the “Pont Aven” and we’ll arrive at Plymouth on Thursday at 1615 and after disembarkation the coach will return to the original pick up points.

The cost includes: travel by executive coach; ferry crossing with cabin; two nights 4* hotel accommodation with buffet breakfast and dinner each day at the hotel with wine; excursions as detailed.
