Advice on where to stay?

Hi, I am travelling from the South of France to Spain for a few days and are looking for recommendations of places to stay in Bilbao or surrounding area.

We would prefer somewhere smaller and non-touristy if possible :)

Does anyone have any recommendations of places to stay/visit/eat in that area?

Thank you!

If you are going to rent a car a very good option is Larrakoetxea Hotel. See the website but it is an amazing place. You don´t need a big budget.

The hotel is in Plentzia, a beautiful village that is close to Bilbao. All the seaside between Bilbao and Plentzia is very advisable.

Don´t forget the Guggenheim musseum.

To eat, almost any restaurant in the Basque Country is a good option.

I´d recommend www.nekatur.net, for a wide choice of cozy, comfortable and non-expensive rural accomodation.
