This spacious 115 m² apartment is in a quiet area near the town centre. It is only a short walk from the beach, 5 min. All exterior windows with a view to the mountains and the marsh (where there is a bird observatory). Fully equipped for six people comfortably accommodated, no sofa-bed. There is also a cot and a high chair for a baby.
We expect to have elevators put in by the end of 2016, that will reduce the size of mi terrace in a 25%.
In Deba, in the very center of the Geopark of Basque Coast (certificated by UNESCO), near the Flysch Route, between Bilbao and San Sebastian. Deba is safe and crime is very low or nothing at all. The temperatures are usually mild. An ideal climate for those who want to flee the sweltering heat.

This apartment in the charming village of Deba was very comfortable. The kitchen was well equiped, the bathroom clean and spacious and we all loved the red leather couch. The views from some of the windows were lovely. Joxean was extremely helpful and welcoming from day one. He greeted us with a local snack of bread, cheese and sardines (or anchovies?) and poured us the wonderful hard cider that is poured from overhead. He had plenty of maps and suggestions for local activities and food choices. He was responsive to all of our needs during our time there also. The apartment is close to the train station, beach and everything in town. Parking was limited, but never a real issue. The biggest downside was the elevator construction that was going on at the time of our visit. It was noisy and smelly and the stairs that needed to be climbed to the third story apartment were challenging. Make sure this project is completed unless you don't care about climbing stairs and are out all day. The apartment could also be improved with better lighting and taking off the plastic sheeting on the beds and getting softer sheets. One other point would be to make sure you know how to use the appliances before Joxean leaves. We never did get the stereo system to work, but were able to figure out the stove, dishwasher and washing machine after experimenting and reading the guides that Joxean left in the bookshelf...all written in Spanish only, but with good illustrations.

Deba is a great place (population approx 5,000). It is safe at all time day and night. There is a real community feel, with children playing late into the night and a party atmosphere - the main street full of people drinking/talking, children playing. At the time we stayed there was live music each night close to the beach. There is a convenient super market 100 metres from apartment. Beach at Deba has large waves which my teenage children loved. We used Deba as a base for travelling to Bilbao, Pamplona, Biarritz, San Sebastian and Bayonne. All were not too much more than an 1 hours drive. My personal favourite was Bayonne. The apartment is large and comfortable and easily fit 2 adults and 3 children. Joxean is lots of fun. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome.
The main one is called Santiago, or beach of Deba as well, and Lapari is smaller and close to it. At low tide both connect and allow you to have long walks on the sand
