Bilbao, San Sebastian & La Rioja

The Basque Country, known locally as Euskadi, is a stunning landscape of coastal villages, vineyards and rolling hills. A foodie's paradise, this corner of Spain is home to a huge choice of Michelin-starred restaurants, while the vibrant pintxo bars offer something a little more traditional. Paired with a glass of Rioja wine, this is the ideal destination for those looking to seriously indulge.

San Sebastian, or Donostia in Basque, is the graceful, sophisticated centre of the Basque Country, bringing a touch of glamour to Spain's northern coast. The elegant architecture of the city is simply beautiful, and its airy plazas make the perfect place to stop and watch the world go by with a glass of wine and delicious pintxos - the Basque version of tapas - in hand. After exploring the city streets and eating to your heart's content, unwind on the golden sands of Playa de la Concha, San Sebastian's famous beach.

West of San Sebastian, Bilbao is the artistic hub of northern Spain. Known for the striking appearance of the Guggenheim Museum, this iconic landmark has revitalised Bilbao, bringing culture lovers and increased tourism to the city. Bilbao is renowned for its eclectic mix of architectural styles, and it's well worth exploring the city's baroque streets and contemporary masterpieces.

Travelling inland, across rolling hills and past hilltop villages, the vineyards of La Rioja await. This region is famed around the world for its delicious eponymous wine, however the fascinating scenery here is almost as enticing as a glass of red. Mountains tower over verdant forests, and tucked away within this incredible landscape is a huge selection of wineries just waiting to be discovered.
