About This Listing
Pitipombo is a recently refurbished (June 2011) spacious and modern holiday accommodation. Decorated by professionals, there is a sober and at the same time, contemporary atmosphere all throughout the apartment.
It is ideally located in the main commercial area in San Sebastian and La Concha Beach is just round the corner (check the map). The pedestrian street is next to the Mercado de San Martin, an excellent quality shopping area where tradition combines perfectly with the latest trends.
This commodious vacation apartment (180 sq. m.) can accommodate up to 10 people. The hall gives direct entrance into the spacious open plan lounge which has been divided into two different areas. On the one side, there are two large sofas, one of them is a sofa-bed, and a 51inch flat screen TV. On the other side, there is a relaxing and bright area next to a baywindow.
At one end of the lounge there are two bedrooms. The main bedroom has a queen size bed and an ensuite bathroom, while the other bedroom has two twin beds.
At the other end, there is a colourful and modern fully equipped kitchen, a second bathroom and a dinning room with a large table with seating for 10 people. Next to the dinning room you will find the third bedroom, where there are two single beds which can become four, and the third bathroom.
All bathrooms at Pitipombo have a shower.
Parking under request for 25 euros/day.
One of the strong points about this holiday apartment is its location. Not only will you be staying in a pleasant pedestrian street, right in the main shopping area in San Sebastian, but also a stone’s throw away from La Concha Beach. From here, it is just a five minute stroll along the promenade to the Old Town and the harbour.

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)

This was my second time at Pitipombo. We love the place because of its location which is a few blocks from the beach, a 8min walk to bretxa/old town, great shops around and a nice market/ super mercat nearby. the apartment is nice and can accommodate my big family comfortably.
Juanra and the company he represents has been extremely easy to deal with and accommodating at many levels. I would certainly refer them and contact them on my next visit.
Un apartamento estupendo, la localización increíble, además tiene parking. La próxima vez no dudaré en volver. Un 10!!!
We had a great stay in the apartment. Bright and beautiful place, comfy beds and spacious place in amazingly perfect location. Just a short stroll from the beach and a few blocks from old town. We had a fab time and would recommend this place
Great place with plenty of space, centrally located a short walk from the old town and both main beaches. Very helpful owner. Highly recommended.
The #1 thing about this apartment is its location. Right in the heart of the action, with lots of shopping on its doorstep and a very manageable walk to all of the main activities (old town for pinxtos, the main beach, the surf beach etc). The apartment itself was well presented, spacious and had everything required, except probably a fan in each bedroom (when we were in San Sebastian it was quite warm and even with the windows open the apartment lacked circulation). Having said that, I would highly recommend this apartment for groups like mine comprising 3 couples. The 3 bedroom/3 bathroom setup worked really well and there was enough space in the apartment for all of us to not feel like we were cramped.
Stylish apartment with tons of space slap bang in the middle of San Seb- close to beaches, old town and shops. I hired the flat for a hen party of 10 girls and it was perfect, but would also suit families who might make more use of the kitchen and dining area! Highly recommended.
