The Space

The apartment is located beside the city's Old Town in an area of Belle Epoch-style buildings with views of the sea and Zurriola Beach.

Miramar is the newest of these buildings, reconstructed 15 years ago and equipped with all the conveniences of a modern apartment building (elevator, car park, concierge). It is one of several sandstone buildings along the seafront with balconies overlooking the Atlantic.

Besides its location, perhaps the most outstanding features of this seventh-floor apartment are the panoramic views of the sea and the beach.

Mirador has one bedroom with a double bed and an adjoining bathroom with shower and tub.

The fully equipped kitchen has a breakfast nook and a table.

The open plan living/dining room area is the largest room in the apartment and features four windows facing the sea. It is furnished with two comfortable sofas, one of which opens into a double bed, making the apartment suitable for up to four guests.

Miramar also has an allocated parking space for 15 euros/day.

The apartment is just beside the Old Town, where most of the city's pintxo bars and restaurants can be found. Just a few short blocks away is one of the city's most attractive markets, La Bretxa, featuring a variety of traditional shops and modern clothing stores.

Right out the door is the beautiful Paseo Nuevo seafront promenade. The walkway circles Monte Urgull - with some of the best views of the city from the top - drops down to the fishing port and leads back to the Old Town and La Concha (website hidden) description:

San Sebastian’s centre, as it could be expected, represents the heart of the city. It is a very elegant area situated between La Concha Beach and the Urumea River. It borders on the Gros neighbourhood at East, on the Antiguo at West and on the Amara at South.

A great deal of shops and distinctive buildings are found in this area. Among these it is worth mentioning the Town Hall, the Victoria Eugenia Theatre or the Buen Pastor Cathedral.
Bars and restaurants spread out all around this area and if you would like to enjoy some typical pintxos, you can try any of them here. Or perhaps you prefer to pop-in in the Old Town, which is just a five minute stroll away.

La Concha, world famous beach and bay, stands out in this area for its natural beauty but also for the spectacular panoramic views from its promenade. At the same time, La Perla, a thalassotherapy centre pioneer in San Sebastian’s tourism since the beginning of the 20th Century is situated along this walk too.

The Miramar Palace appears as a natural frontier between the Antiguo, Aiete and the Centre neighbourhoods. This palace and its surrounding gardens facing the bay are like a banner for the city, as it was here where the former Royal Family used to spend their summer holidays at the beginning of the 20th Century. Thanks to these prestigious visitors San Sebastian became a very fashionable city among the elite tourism. Nowadays, the Miramar Palace houses the High School of Music of San Sebastian. You will enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the city and the bay from here.

Several supermarkets can be found in this area as well as one of the most attractive markets in the city, the San Martin market. Both, traditional and the latest shops are located in this store.
Very close to the city centre, at the entrance of the Old Town, there is another well-known market, La Bretxa. There is also a good combination of traditional and modern shops here, probably the most genuine market in the whole of San Sebastian.

A gorgeous route you may want to take is that going from La Concha to the harbour and from here to the Paseo Nuevo, all along the seaside. Parting from this Paseo Nuevo, you also may feel like going up to Urgull Mountain, just a 15 minute climb. And we can assure you that it will be worth it, as you will enjoy the most beautiful view of San Sebastian right from the top. Coming down from the Mountain, you get back to the Old Town and, after passing by the Town Hall, you will reach La Concha again.

If you come to visit the city by car, you will find that there are various public carparks in the city centre: La Concha, Boulevard, San Martín, Okendo, Amara and Buen Pastor.

Thanks to a modern and wide network of public transport, the Antiguo is very well connected to the other city neighbourhoods. For more information on public transport you can visit the official webpage: (website hidden)

  • Lovely apartment in a great location only a very short walk from the heart of the old town. The views of the sea are delightful. The apartment is exactly as depicted in the photos. The apartment is bright and very airy with plenty of windows to capture the breeze. The apartment is well furnished and comfortable. It is very quiet. The markets and delightful food shops only a street away and the various streets with brilliant Pinxos restaurants only two blocks - foodie heaven . The building has a very elegant entry, lift, security is excellent and having underground parking available was excellent. Communication prior to arrival was very good and helpful for some of our planning. Our only challenge was the lack of instruction manuals for the appliances and some basic items were not provided e.g. cleaning cloth. We highly recommend this apartment. After staying in San Sebastian we think the location is ideal and apartment are ideal.

  • We found Miramar apartment to be very spacious, stylish and well appointed with all your basic creature comforts catered for. It was perfectly located on the doorstep of the old town and within minutes walk of excellent tapas bars. And of course, there were those incredible unobstructed views over the bay - the sound of the sea and waves after a long day of walking around town was the perfect end to every day. Couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay here!

  • Excellent location, spacious apartment overlooking the water
    Located near the old town and surfing beach.the promenade that stretches around the bay is right outside.
    San Sebastion is very beautiful. The water is warm and the sand is very fine.
    The old town is only a few minutes away. It has a party atmosphere with people on the street enjoy the the local tapas every evening,also music and entertainment. Look for the Beatles marionettes
    There are beautiful hills surrounding the bay.
    It is vey European and unique as basque is spoken here
    Lots of festivals here including film festival
    Highly recommend this appartment in a beautiful building with marble everywhere and modern kitchens. Very spacious in comparison to most European apartments.
