2. Donostia / San Sebastián - Spain

At just over a 2 hour drive from Le Belvedere, the Spanish resort town of San Sebastián on the Bay of Biscay is well worth the journey. If the spectacular beaches and brightly coloured buildings don’t win you over, the Basque cuisine and lively atmosphere will. Known for its beaches framed by the picturesque bayfront promenade, cobble stoned streets of old town (Parte Vieja), world-renowned restaurants and vibrant pintxo bars pairing local wines with bite-size regional specialties. San Sebastian is right up there in our top 10.
