Looking for input on Basque itinerary

Jump to last reply

DH and I will be spending a week in the Spanish and French Basque area after 4 days in Barcelona, where our wanderings will be focused on art, architecture and food.

Unfortunately, the more I read about Basque Country, the more I want to see and I’m having trouble coming up with an interesting yet somewhat relaxed itinerary. For this part of the trip, I think we’d like to soak up the culture, have great meals and wander through charming villages. We’re familiar with Gehry’s architecture (we live in Los Angeles and frequent Disney Hall) so the Guggenheim in Bilbao isn’t a priority. We prefer staying in larger towns for more varied night life and restaurant options.

Is the first itinerary below too ambitious?

Itinerary 1 - 5 nights San Sebastian, 2 nights Biarritz:
5/11: Arrive San Sebastian from Barcelona late afternoon
5/12: San Sebastian
5/13: Morning in San Sebastian. Lunch and afternoon in Hondarribia and Hendaye
5/14: Morning in San Sebastian. Pick up car. Lunch and afternoon in Getaria (with visit to the Balenciaga museum), and Lekeitio. Is it too much to squeeze in Guernica?
5/15: Day trip to Ascain, Sare, Ainhoa and Espellete. Return car.
5/16: Mid morning train to St. Jean de Luz. Can we store our luggage at the train station while we visit St. Jean? Late afternoon train to Biarritz.
5/17: Biarritz
5/18: Mid morning train to Paris

Itinerary 2 - 5 nights San Sebastian and 2 nights St. Jean de Luz:
5/11: Arrive San Sebastian from Barcelona late afternoon
5/12: San Sebastian
5/13: Morning in San Sebastian. Lunch and afternoon in Hondarribia and Hendaye
5/14: San Sebastian: Rent car for day trip to Guernica, Getaria and Lekeitio.
5/15: San Sebastian.
5/16: St. Jean de Luz.
5/17: Rent car for day trip to Ascain, Sare, Ainhoa and Espellete.
5/18: Morning train to Paris

TIA - I appreciate all your comments!
