(No availability) 8 Days Culinary Vacations in the Basque Country

San Sebastian - St. Jean de Luz

Mountain and Sea Culinary Holiday in Basque

This is a magical land, half French and half Spanish where they burst into song at the drop of a hat. The Basques are warm and friendly - half mountain people and half sea people. The scenery is fabulous and the food divine. Peta Mathias' mission has always been to provide really authentic gastronomic and cultural experiences, far from the well-trodden tourist circuits and into the homes, restaurants and kitchens of people with real food soul. She samples everything, from the chic to the humble because variety is the spice of life! As usual the most difficult task has been to choose between all those delicious recipes, those tempting wines, those magical interiors, those overflowing markets. Someone's got to do it - why not you?

Hotel Astoria7

Each of its 102 rooms is dedicated uniquely to a star, actor or filmmaker, who has been present at the International Festival San Sebastian Film.

The Madison Hotel

Located in the heart of Saint Jean de Luz, just a few steps from a golden beach, this completely renovated historic hotel will seduce you with its elegant style combining charm and modernity. The Madison Hotel will be delighted to welcome you in its 32 rooms and suites, with modern and Traditional Basque inspired decoration.


You start your tour in the perfect gastronomic city of San Sebastian, where we spend 4 nights exploring, eating pintxos (the most sophisticated tapas) and drinking Rioja. You kick-off with a Ciderhouse welcome dinner, visit the Guggenheim, go on a pintxos tasting tour of the Old Town, visit the medieval town of Gaetaria, take a boat ride to the freshest seafood lunch you've ever eaten, and visit a txakoli vineyard for bubbles and lunch, to name but a few things.

On the morning of day 5 you head to the beautiful fishing town of St. Jean-de-Luz (about an hour away) where you spend the next 3 days eating yet more seafood, drinking Irouléguy and exploring the area. You will have a guided tour of the town and market, visit the famous village of Espelette, eat in starred restaurants and shop 'til you drop. St Jean is both enigmatic and welcoming with dramatic green mountains, white washed houses and fabulous beaches.
