The Space

The holiday apartment Gros Beach in San Sebastian is an exclusive accommodation both due to the interior decoration as much as for the facilities it has to offer. It has an enviable location next to the Zurriola Beach, also known as the Gros Beach.

This vacation apartment was renovated by a prestigious interior design firm during the spring-summer of 2012; it was a total refurbishment down to the last detail.
The holiday accommodation Gros Beach is located on the fourth floor of a building with a lift. This building, classed as cultural and architectural heritage, has side views to the sea and the Gros Beach. The interior of the apartment has been distributed in 85 square metres, perfectly laid out among all the rooms.
There are two double bedrooms in the accommodation. The main bedroom has a king size bed and the second one has two single beds. Both have spacious fitted wardrobes. The main bedroom also has an en-suite bathroom and a small balcony enjoying side views of the beach.

The kitchen, although totally separated from the lounge-dining area, is perfectly integrated within this room. A glass sliding door and a large window divide the open plan lounge-dining area from the kitchen keeping away cooking smells and smoke.
This is a beautiful designer’s kitchen, fully fitted with modern electrical appliances and all necessary equipment, so that you and your party will enjoy delicious meals during your holidays.
The open plan lounge-dining room is a spacious area full of light thanks to the high ceilings, the large windows and the light colours used on the walls. Another charming detail in the decoration of this wonderful vacation apartment is the concrete columns within sight.
There is also a large sofa bed in the lounge giving the accommodation capacity for up to six people.

The holiday accommodation Gros Beach has two modern fully equipped bathrooms, both fitted with shower cubicles. Besides, next to the entrance hall there is a laundry-room where there is a washing machine and a tumble-dryer machine.

This vacation apartment offers Wi-Fi Internet system and the possibility of contracting a parking space in a carpark just five minutes away from the accommodation.

There are all sorts of shops, bars and restaurants in the surrounding area, which is quite lively during the day but peaceful and quiet at night. Just a five minute stroll will take us to the Old Quarter, great for nightlife and countless pintxo bars and traditional (website hidden) description:

The Urumea River separates Gros from the Old Town and from the City Centre by two different bridges, giving it an obvious closeness to them. It borders on the Bay of Biscay at North, on the Ulia Mountain at East and on the Urumea River and the Kursaal Convention Centre at West.

La Zurriola Beach, the newest of them all in San Sebastian, is located in this neighbourhood. It is very popular among surf lovers and professional surfers and it is also just a five minute stroll away from La Concha Beach.

At the end of the promenade along La Zurriola, at the side of the Ulia Mountain, there is an area of houses, pintxo bars and pubs called Sagües. It is a favourite spot among young people. There is also a great esplanade and leisure activity area here.

There are lots of shops all around Gros and in the last few years, it has become a very popular area for those in search of good quality pintxo bars and pubs. However, if what you are looking for is to follow a complete route of typical pintxos, it is a must to finish in the Old Town, just a 7 minute stroll from Gros.

There are some wonderful walks to be enjoyed from Gros to other parts of the city. For instance, starting at Sagües and walking all along La Zurriola promenade until you reach the Paseo Nuevo, a magic place when the Cantabrian Sea is rough. From here you can go up the Urgull Mountain, a mere 15-20 minute climb, then come down to the harbour and from there back again to the Old Town and Gros. A trully enjoyable all around walk.

The Gros neighbourhood has several supermarkets and other grocery shops for those of you who prefer to enjoy a more intimate dinner at the apartment.

If you are visiting the city by car, you should know there are three large public car parks in the area: Plaza de Cataluña, Kursaal and Txofre.

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)

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • We loved the Gros Beach apartment. It was super-modern and comfortable, & in reality was even better than what you see in the photos.
    The location was fabulous & it was an easy walk to the beach, the old town (for the all-important pintxos), as well as having plenty going on nearby (incl a shop right outside for coffee & breakfast on the go).
    Juan was prompt with all communication & to confirm our booking, and happily met us to show us around the apartment & handover the key when we arrived late at night.
    There was no parking in the building, but plenty nearby for €10/day.
    Overall, we were very happy & will stay here again next time we're in San Sebastian.

  • This apartment was incredible! Location was excellent, literally metres from the beach. Very modern and had all the facilities you could possibly need (full kitchen, washer and dryer, wifi, TV). The apartment comfortably slept 6 of us, all of whom were very impressed with the accommodation. Highly recommended.

  • This accommodation was perfect for our trip to San Sebastián. Close to the beaches, the old town and the shops in a nice building and best of all, newly renovated with a high quality finish. The bed was extremely comfortable which is rare when you are traveling. The agents for the property were very friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend this property.
