    • Transportation for a day trip from San Sebastian to Biarritz

      by Melkat Online Now Apr 11, 2014 at 11:50 PM

      Hello , we are a group of four and wish to spend the day in Biarritz departing from San Sebastian in September.
      We would like a shuttle or taxi or driver to take us there early in the morning and return us to our hotel late that same evening.
      Does anyone know if this is possible and who we can book with as we don't want to be catching a train or bus late in the evening.

      Hola! I am thinking of going from Bilbao to San Sebastian on a day trip. I believe bus takes less time than train correct? If yes, is there only 1 company (PESA) and do I need to but the ticket beforehand or is it OK to buy it at the bus station right before I leave? Gracias y saludos.

    • San Sebastian to Perpignan

      by tuille Online Now Mar 22, 2013 at 11:43 PM

      I checked the distance between San Sebastian and Perpignan and it is around 550kms -via Toulouse. The ways i find to get from one place to the other by bus or train are complex though, and around 800kms, via Barcelona or Pamplona. Why is that? Is there a cheap and comfortable way (I would go for a night train or bus, so that i can sleep overnight and not lose a day of my precious week for the Basque and some France trip) to go from San Seb to Perpignan? Please help/ more questions on this trip to follow. Many thanx

      My husband and I are hoping to go to SS in June, we will be arriving by train. Long journey from England! I have been looking at accommodation, we would prefer self catering. Can anyone recommend an area to stay, we want to be near the centre. I don't know much about SS. Is it flat? We are both in our 70's and although fit wouldn't want to tackle anything too hilly. It seems to be quite compact from reading about it on line but I haven't found out any info in great detail. Many thanks

      Hi all

      We're planning a trip to San Sebastian this August and hoping to hire a car one day to drive to the Altamira Cave. We're guessing the journey will take around 2-3 hours and wondered if there's anywhere worth a short visit where we could stop off to break up the return journey.

      I would appreciate any help on where to stay on a budget in San Sebastian, I am thinking of traveling in Sept which I think is high season which makes it a bit difficult but any help would be great. I would love to stay near the center of San Sebastian but that is probably asking to much, but definitely not too far out as I will have no transport apart from the local public transport.

      I'll be staying in Hondarribia and plan to take the bus to San Sebastian on the day of the Immaculate celebration. I've already confirmed buses will be running ... however, does anyone know if there will be stores and restaurants open for pintxos and dinner?

      There is also a little Solbes store near the center of town (I think the one I mean is Aldamar Kalea) - anyone know if it will be open on that day?
