Basque Country - where to stay?

Jump to last reply

Our September trip to the Dordogne is coming along fine, we're looking at a few very nice B&B's/small hotels for our first week in and around Sarlat. After about 4 days in Basque Country, we'll plan to head back to, or near, La Rochelle for 3 - 4 days before flying home from Paris. There seem to be plenty of the same types of lodgings in La Rochelle too.

It is the middle section that we're having difficulty with. We really want to spend some time in San Sebastian, but have been unable to locate anything comparable to the places we're checking out in both locales in France. What we are finding are either extremely basic pensions, almost to the level of a hostel, or fancy beach-side hotels for 350 Euro per night and up. Nothing in between.

Are there any nice, historic small towns near this area where we might find "characteristic" B@Bs or small hotels? Our price range is around 200 Euro per night - we've been able to stay under that in France. The locale could either be near the beach or inland, and we'd also consider staying on the French side of the border - though not far from San Sebastian. But we prefer to base in a small town or village, not in a country setting.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
