Last July, I had the pleasure to meet two great families from Manchester: the McAllisters & the Speakmans. Both families were traveling with their sons & daughters and were looking forward to explore and enjoy the best of San Sebastian.They stayed in our Ondarreta and Belle Epoque apartments and they remember their stay with us like something really special.
I can guarantee that they had lots of fun. It was Friday the day they arrived and even though they were tired and got to San Sebastian in the late afternoon, they joined us for the Pintxos Tour. We went to Zeruko, Aralar, La Cepa, Bar Martinez, La Cuchara de San Telmo and A fuego negro and tried all kinds of pintxos ( prawns, cod, ham, scallops…). They also tried our famous white wine: Txakoli. They loved it!!!
During their stay in San Sebastian, the Jazzaldia Music Festival was held and they were lucky to see Elvys Costello & Jamie Cullum’s concerts at the Zurriola beach for free!
Apart from that, we were celebrating Karmengo Jaiak in San Sebastian. This is a festival to honor fishermen and these are some of the activities they organize every year: greasy pole, tortilla (omelette) competition, mass in honor to fishermen, concerts, street party (comida popular), mus (card game) competition… They had never seen this kind of festival before and they had such a great time!!!
The best thing is that they are coming back next July and that they are staying in our holiday rental apartments in San Sebastian again. I am really looking forward to seeing you all again
Thank you so much McAllisters & Speakmans !
