We will be flying into Bilbao, then driving through Basque country towards Bayonne, on our way to the Dordogne. We'll have 4 days. In Bilbao, we are only planning on visiting the Guggenheim (a bucket list item!) and then travelling on. We are in our 70s, and one of us is not a big walker (I can do about a kilometer, using my walking stick). We enjoy exploring small towns, great food, interesting unique phenomena,window shopping, boat/ferry rides, and more. Some of the towns we have looked into are Guernica, Zumaia (my husband is a geologist!), Getaria, Hondaribbia, and Pasai Donibane. Should we stay in one of these towns, or in San Sebastian? We plan to spend our last night in Bayonne, before driving to the Dordogne in the morning.
So, with our first night in Bilbao and our last in Bayonne, what would be a good place(s) to stay the other two nights? Small town? City (SanSebastian or St. Jean de luz? Other?). Any other suggestions?
We are travelling in late May.
