UNIT ADAPTED FOR DISABLED PEOPLE
Hondarribia, also known as Fuenterrabia, is a tourist resort situated just 18 kms from San Sebastian. It is a beautiful small seaside town, once a traditional fishing village. It has become with a population of nearly 20,000 inhabitants, one of the most important tourist areas in the Basque Country.
The holiday accommodation Hondarribi 10C is located on the second floor of a recently built (2011) luxurious block of apartments. The apartment is situated in a building with near the sea, the Txingudi Bay to be precise. This is the natural border between the Basque-Spanish town of Hondarribia and the Basque-French town of Hendaia. There is a boat service during the day and the crossing takes just five minutes.
The inside of the apartment is distributed in 90 square metres and added to this, there is a spacious terrace of about 15 square metres facing the sea.
There are 2 spacious double bedrooms. One of them has two twin beds and the main bedroom has a king size bed. There is also a double sofa-bed in the living room.
However, the gatherings for lunch or dinner can also be organized in the terrace where there are one table and chairs.
The terrace has wooden floors and side-walls all (website hidden) is equipped with mechanically operated blinds for greater privacy and protection from the heat during the midday hours.
The two bedrooms have large built-in wardrobes. There are two bathrooms with shower in the apartment, one of them adapted to disabled people.
The fully equipped modern kitchen is situated next to the dining room. It is has been fitted with top of the range electrical appliances so that you will not miss anything during your holidays.
The Hondarribi apartment has the perfect finish of a luxurious holiday accommodation including heating by under floor radiant heating system, lift with direct access to the garage, weekly cleaning… Besides, you can always get in contact with Feelfree Rentals if you wish to contract other services. We will do our very best to sort out your requests.
The vacation apartment also offers the possibility to rent a space in the parking for 15 euros/day located underneath the building. This way, if you come on holidays by car you will avoid the hassle of finding where to park, which it can get very difficult during holiday time.
Another advantage of the Hondarribi apartment is its location. It is situated in a quiet area of the village but at the same time, next to all services such as shops, bars and restaurants.
At Feelfree Rentals we manage several apartments located in the same building so this could be the perfect option for those coming in a large group.

The small and charming town of Hondarribia, called Fuenterrabia for decades, recovered its original name a few years ago. The real name means “sandford”.
Hondarribia is a popular holiday town located in the mouth of the Bidasoa River, in the Basque Coast. There are good connections with other interesting places and there is an airport and a great road network with the rest of Europe.
The Atlantique climate in this area, mild weather both in winter as in the summer, together with a wonderful beach and great hotel and sport facilities, make it very attractive for tourism. By the end of the 19th century, it was already a very popular area among tourists, which determined the type of architecture and urban style found nowadays.
For some years, several expansion and widening projects were made and a good number of villas and housing developments were built in this area. It has a population of over 16 000 inhabitants, who live all around the various and very different neighbourhoods. There is the old town, the fishing neighbourhood and the Jaizkibel hillside, where most of the farmhouses are found. However in the summer, the population can reach up to 40 000 inhabitants, what makes it a very dynamic holiday town. There are many cultural and sport events taking place at this time of the year, and these together with the famous fiestas make Hondarribia a very attractive place for the visitors.
The economy is mainly based on its services although fishing is still a very important part in the life of Hondarribian people. The latter, together with the familiar agriculture found in the area, create a rich and varied gastronomic offer.
Hondarribia also has an important cultural and artistic heritage coming above all from its rich history, being one of the strongest garrison towns in the whole of the Basque Country. Most of the city walls remain standing and give Hondarribia a special appearance bringing back its epic past. Each corner, alley and square is filled with the smells, tastes and sounds that take us back to the old times.
The walls surround the old town situated at the top of a hill. In the inside, we are presented with narrow streets layout in a perfect grid. These cobbled streets are filled with beautiful buildings decorated with forged iron balconies and wooden carved eaves.
Besides the outstanding beach, Hondarribia also offers its visitors a great Marina and this year 2012, the new Auditorium will be opened just opposite the Hondarribi vacation apartments.
In the town centre we can find all sorts of services and shops: supermarkets, some of the best pintxo bars in the whole of the province as well as some Michelin star awarded restaurants.

Nice, well equipped apartment in a fantastic location. 2 min walk to the pier for the boat to Hundaya, 1 min to main street and 5 minutes to the old town (plus another 5-10 to climb to the top!).
The apartment is very spacious and was perfect for our group of four adults. We enjoyed the patio and were glad to have a washing machine, large refrigerator (by European standards) and dishwasher.
The apartment was very sparsely decorated and not too homey feeling, but very clean and simple - which was perfect for what we needed.
The bedrooms and bathrooms were also size-able with good closet space. The beds were a bit too springy for our 60 year old parents, but ok for us.
The staff was very kind and quick to respond to our request for a new mattress.
We thought it was a great cost to quality ratio and would stay here again.
Fantástico!!!. el piso era fenomenal, bien situado, limpio, nuevo y muy espacioso. Estuvimos como en casa. La verdad es que repetiremos.
The apartment is situated perfectly by the harbor in the cozy and friendly atmosphere of Hondarribia. 15 min walk to the beach which has a light brown sand and is very safe for children at all ages. Juan Ramon is very friendly and helpful - to our surprise he had installed wi-fi in the apartment for our use and an extra bed was set up in one of the bedrooms. This is worth to mention because it contributed to make our stay very easy. The apartment is really beautiful and we enjoyed the view from our veranda each morning as we had breakfast, overlooking locals talking on the corners or on their way to the beach. We had reserved a parking spot and it was located in the basement of the apartment building which was extremely convenient. Everything worked prefectly and we did not need any help from our hosts during our stay.
There are many good restaurants in Hondarribia and you have everything you need just around the corner - grocery store, bakery, fresh veggies and fruits, pharmacy and you name it. Everything in walking distance.
The place, the apartment and our host, get our warmest recommendations and we seriously consider traveling back to it all.
San Sebastián is only 20 minutes away - and we highly recommend taking surfing lessons by one of the local surfing schools. It was really a thrill for all our family members (ages (phone number hidden) og 4).
This brand new apartment was more than we had expected - it was clean, comfortable and well-equipped. It was also well located in the town of Hondarribia.
