Properties for sale in Basque Country

The beautiful Basque Country, one of Spain’s greenest regions, enjoys a fabulous location on the northern Atlantic Coast of Spain, close to the French border, with a singular landscape and its own cultural identity as well as the highest per-capita income in the country. Also known as Euskadi and Pais Vasco, this autonomous community is one of the most prosperous regions of Spain with a healthy real estate market and endless reasons to want to make a home here.

Basque Country real estate includes some of the most attractive homes for sale in Northern Spain. Drawn to this area by the incredible scenery of rolling green hills and rugged coastline with gorgeous expansive beaches, buyers may choose from among a selection of upmarket properties. These include incredible beachfront plots for new build homes, Basque country villas with pools, many superb apartments and penthouses for sale in the larger towns and of course, Baserris, traditional Basque half timbered stone farmhouses, usually located in incredible natural settings and ideal for a renovation project.

The region has a population of over two million and is roughly divided into three main areas by the local mountain ranges: the Atlantic basin, the central section where we find the capital Vitorio, and the Ebro Valley. Apart from the northern valleys which receive a fair amount of rain, the majority of the region enjoys a mild Continental Mediterranean climate.

The area boasts a famous culinary tradition with excellent locally produced meat, seafood and regional wine (Samaniego, Laguardia, Elciego, Labastida) and Vitoria-Gasteiz, the region’s capital with its picturesque historic centre, is the perfect place to sample some local pinxos. Gastronomy is not the only highlight of the Basque Country though; this is also a surfer’s paradise, with Mundaka Beach being considered home to the best waves in Europe and year-round cultural events on offer in the region’s exciting cities.

Bilbao and San Sebastian are two of the region’s most attractive locations for overseas buyers looking to acquire Basque Country real estate as they offer an irresistible mix of art, history, culture, good food and nature on the doorstep.

Bilbao is an exciting European city that is in constant evolution and is most famous for its landmark building, the gleaming, futuristic Guggenheim Museum. It is an increasingly popular choice for those looking for luxury homes on the outskirts of the city, closer to the waterfront and the Bay of Biscay, as well as city centre pied-a-terres.

San Sebastian is a charming upmarket seaside town that conquers the hearts of all that visit it with its distinctive beach, permanent holiday vibe and a variety of ultra luxurious apartments, penthouses and townhouses available to buy and rent.  Lucas Fox homes in San Sebastian range from renovation projects to stunning new build residences with large sea view terraces with and the very finest finishes.
