Tentative Spain/France Basque region itinerary

Jump to last reply

Looking into using some frequent flyer miles to visit this area (first time in area, have been to other parts of Spain and France)). We'll have 10-11 nights. The plan is to fly into Biarritz and out of Bilboa. We plan on having a car for at least part of the trip.

I'm trying to figure out overnight spots. On arrival, I'm thinking either Bayonne or Biarritz, and on the Spain side definitely San Sebastian and Bilboa. Thinking 3 nights San Sebastian, 2 Bilboa (enough?).

Where else between Biarritz and San Sebastian is a good place for overnights? Hondarribia has been recommended. We are not planning on major beach time, but would like to see scenic coastal areas for some good photo ops.

From what I understand, since we're crossing a border, it's best to return the car before leaving France, take a bus/train then pickup another car in Spain (warned of high cost to dropoff car in another country).

This trip will either be in late May or September/October.
