ASADOR EXTEBARRI..and assorted related topics..questions..

Jump to last reply

I am re-visiting the idea of traveling to Spain in October and spending about two weeks there. As I noted on an earlier thread, one plan has us flying into MAD and heading up to Lerma by rental car.

After Lerma, and Burgos, we might drive to Bilbao and spend a few days before driving to Axpe to lunch at Asador Extebarri. Interested in hearing from those who have been there whether or not you stayed in Axpe overnight, or headed on after lunch. Thoughts on that?

I'd like to include the Saturday market in Tolosa so was thinking of heading to that area after Axpe,perhaps spending a night or two in a hotel nearby. (This looks lovely; would it be too difficult to stay here and make an easrly visit to the Tolosa market from there; how is the parking situation on market day? Possible to take taxi?)

Then? Spend a night or two in Getaria or visit from SS, which would be the last stop on the tour?

Finally, spend about 4 nights in SS, devoted to wandering and eating. I'd include one multi-starred restaurant but which one? Akelarre?


Hotel in SS?

Any chance of a sane plan that would allow a stay in Lisbon on this trip? ( Fly from NY to Lisbon and then on to MAD? No interesting train options??)

I'd welcome any and all thoughts and opinions on all aspects of such a trip….thinking of October but want to hear comments on weather at that time.

I should mention that I have been to Spain many times and to the Basque area two or three times but have not seen much outside SS and, to a lesser extent, Bilbao.

Mil gracias and regards to all!
