Guggenheim Terrace, Apartment of the Week
Years ago if you mentioned you were going to Bilbao, the normal response would be why. Why would you want to visit the dirty industrial city of Bilbao when there are so many other beautiful places along the Basque coastline to explore, say San Sebastian for example? Well things have changed, no longer is it that industrial city instead it is a modern, exciting city boasting world class museums and modern architecture whilst maintaining a firm grip on its roots and traditions.
Bilbao provides the place to experience Basque culture, from wandering the streets of the old quarter sampling the world famous pintxos washed down with a glass of Basque white wine or as it is known by the locals, Txakoli to watching a game of “pelota” or simply relaxing in this wonderful city. Any visit to Bilbao wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Guggenheim Museum, its undulating titanium covered panels as spectacular as the collection it houses.
Also worthy of a visit is the Calatrava designed Zubizuri Bridge spanning the Nervión River and the century old Puente Colgante (Hanging Bridge) linking the towns of Portugalete and Las Arenas.
To help you enjoy your stay in Bilbao we would like to recommend the magnificent Guggenheim Terrace Apartment.
Located in Deusto, a lively neighbourhood boasting many bars and restaurants serving delicious pintxos and only a short walk from the old quarter and many of Bilbao’s major tourist attractions, this large attic apartment located on the river Nervión comfortably sleeps up to four people and comes equipped with all the modern conveniences you would expect from a luxury apartment such as this.
Saving the best to last this Bilbao apartment boasts a 140sqm terrace offering the best views in Bilbao, from the terrace you will be able to admire the setting sun’s rays reflected in the undulating panels of the Guggenheim Museum and views stretching back to the mountains surrounding Bilbao.
Perfect for a couple looking for a romantic getaway or for a group of friends wishing to explore the lively nightlife this Bilbao apartment won’t disappoint.
