NEAR san sebastian? You mean like in pueblos/campo/sea coast? if so you need to contact an agency that rents houses/villas etc. Otherwise, San Sebastian itself has lovely hotels. See what deals the Sheraton has for there Maria Cristina in S.S.

If you look into the Sheraton, go to sheraton.com and click on hot rates. they usually are GOOD! but non-refundable. there are usually deals for the weekend and so on. They always have the Mencey hotel, which is STUNNING, in tenerife, for 15,000 ptas on weekends! less than $100.

Wow arty_lass! You've done something I've never seen accomplished before; using the words "San Sebastian" AND "cheapish" in the same sentence! hehehe.. I think if you add the two words together you get ZERO. rgf, is there anything cheapish in San Sebastian!?? Maybe in some small town outide, no? This is a rather upscale part of Spain, is it not? I understand it's beautiful, but pricey.

If you go to HotelSearch.com and type "San Sebastian" into the DESTINATION search box you'll get several hotels (most of which are 4-5 stars!! Youch!), but many of them have websites. Good luck and hope your parents hav a great time!

Saludos, MadridMan

if your parents are renting a car, try Hondarrivia, a town east of San Sebastian across France. They have a Parador and plenty of reasonable accomodations I stayed in a log cabin for around US$50.00 a few years ago, but I can't remember the place (it was part of a campground and they had about 6 little log cabins for rent).

Ouch, I checked the Ma. Cristina (amazing hote, btw) and even w/ hot rates it is 32 thousand pesetas. Right, it is high season still there. Maybe if they need 2 rooms they should look into an apartment arrangement. I don't know how it works in San seb., but in Santander there are many lovely apts. by the week.

thanks for all your help guys! i think the apartments are the way to go....im surprised at how expensive san sebastian seems, after staying there in june, right in the centre of town, for 2000 pts a night...it was a bit noisy though...good job our drunken snoring drowned it out eh?
