The Experience

Framed by tawny sands and emerald hills, San Sebastián’s splendid coastline is laid out before you. Come to this warm, quirky place, dressed in sheepskin and chandeliers, to read, write, explore. The former historic villa of a Countess now has a cocktail bar, happy hour and yoga if you book in advance. It feels like the holiday home of a very arty, well-travelled friend.

Breakfast is brought to your room between 9 and 10 on a tray – fresh orange juice, warm rolls, eggs, ham and cheese, bowls of yogurt with granola, seeds and fruit. Everything is local, organic and has as little packaging as possible.

Stroll to the vast city backyard of Playa La Concha, where the locals flock to picnic, pose and play; body boarders will find powerful waves one beach over at the Playa de la Zurriola. Visit churches, museums and galleries, spend an afternoon in sultry Santa Clara, eat fresh oysters or pintxos (Basque tapas) with a glass of sparkling txakoli white wine.

Accommodation

Reviews

This hotel is well located and good value for money. Decoration and general ambience is of a home other than a commercial undertaking. Large Black Labrador very docile, mainy lays around. Ronnie and Nando are very good hosts. Breakfasts are dainty. Views are stunning. Car park access has a very tight curving ramp , not for the faint hearted. But once down the ramp there is plenty of space. Bedroom four faces the main road and could be noisy if you need the windows open. Beach is close by and down 241 steps. Taxi back around €8.00. Climb back and have a celebratory cocktail in the hotel

Far Out Inn is a real gem! The atmosphere is relaxed and homely; the views are stunning! We particularly loved the breakfast, and found it very convenient having secure parking in such a central location.

Location

The neighbourhood

You’re perched on a hill overlooking the bay – the city at your feet, but away from the noise and traffic. There are no signs outside to announce the B&B; you’ll be sent directions and photos before you arrive, and if you’re bringing a car you’ll need to call just before arriving so they can open the gate to the car park. It’s an easy walk to both the old town and beach, and there are lots of places to eat from Michelin-starred restaurants to little backstreet pintxos bars.

Local points of interest from Kate Moore

  • Far Out Inn began in 2004, based in the former home of Dick Whittington in rural Gloucestershire. After two years we set sail for the Hawaiian island of Maui. Here we hosted hundreds of guests from around the world for eight years.
  • In 2013 we bid a hui ho to Hawaii after discovering the hidden jewel of Spain, San Sebastián. Falling deeply in love with the beautiful Basque coast we moved Far Out Inn back to Europe.
  • Located in the centre, in a quiet neighbourhood, we are walking distance from all the major touristic attractions yet far away from all the noise.
  • La Concha beach is just a 5 minute walk down from us. (stairs can be found just next to the house). Also very close to the famous La Perla Spa which we sell tickets to for a special price.

Introducing

Kate Moore

Far Out’s owners are multicultural, multilingual – splitting their time between Spain and Portugal now, their path to San Sebastián took them from rural Gloucestershire to Hawaii, and finally to the Basque Country in 2013. You’ll be looked after by a fleet of young, enthusiastic people but you have your own keys to the door and gate – just ring the ‘tortoise bell’ in reception if you need any help.
