Romantic coastal town similar to San Sebastian?

Jump to last reply

My DH and I are planning to rendezvous in Europe mid May, 2013. I will already be in Rome. We will not be renting a car. We enjoy the train, and with the many small, cheap airlines in Europe, we are confident we can get wherever we need to go.

Now we just need to decide our destination! We would like to find a wonderful coastal town where we can spend 5-6 days. We have been to San Sebastian, Spain several times. It is our favorite place. We would love to find another equally charming city. We have also enjoyed St. Jean de Luz and Biarritz , France.

We need the help of you seasoned Fodorites! Here is our wish list:

Easy to get to by train, bus, or smaller airline from a major European city. (DH will be flying in from the US). Ideally it would be great if he could meet me in Rome, but I can fly to meet him if necessary.

Good food, exceptional views.

Prefer not swarming with Americans.

Ideally, an elegant old hotel that isn't ridiculously expensive. (less than 300 Euros would be great).

Warmer rather than colder climate.

Added bonus: Great art.

Any Suggestions?
