San Fermin - Authentic, city centre

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Calle de Garibai, San Sebastian, Basque Country 20004, Spain

The Space

The holiday accommodation San Fermin is situated next to the Boulevard, in the first urban expansion carried out in San Sebastian known as Cortazar. This is one of the main tree-lined avenues in San Sebastian and separates the Old Town from the City Centre. Just 50 metres away is the Town Hall and next to it, La Concha Beach and the fishing port.

This vacation apartment gets its name as a tribute to the famous bullfighting Fiestas which take place in the nearby town of Pamplona.

San Fermin is an accommodation totally impregnated with a bullfighting atmosphere. It could be said that it is like an ode to the bulls’ fiesta; posters relating to a series of bullfights, tributes and dedications from bullfighters. All sorts of bullfighting motifs fill up the holiday apartment giving it a genuine style.

Having a surface area of more than 90 square metres, this holiday apartment is located on the third floor of a building with a lift.

There are three spacious double bedrooms in the accommodation. The main bedroom has an extra-large king size bed (180 cms wide) and the other two have two single beds each. The three of them have large wardrobes and a French window onto a peaceful open-air courtyard. This tranquil feature is a real plus given the location of the accommodation.

The apartment also has a fully equipped bathroom with shower cubicle and a guests’ cloakroom.

The spacious and modern kitchen can also be used as a dining room as there is table and chairs. It is a fully fitted kitchen with all necessary appliances and kitchenware where you will be able to enjoy your meals with friends and family. All the more so if we take into account that the most authentic food market in San Sebastian – La Bretxa – is situated just 200 metres away from the apartment.

The holiday accommodation San Fermin, situated at the very heart of the city, also offers the possibility of contracting a parking space in a car park located just 5 minutes away.

Zone 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)

  • Great apartment in very good location (close to La Concha and the old town/harbor and shopping area ). There are 3 bedrooms, one with 2 beds, and the owners do love toreros ;-) Very Spanish and charming. We enjoyed our stay there. Only nearby parking can be a bit difficult sometimes...
