My husband and two teenagers wanted a castle. We've stayed in some pretty amazing old buildings--Danieli, Venice, Imperial, Vienna, to name some. I thought that a castle would end up disappointing, run down, skating on the pull of the word "castle." But Castillo de Arteaga met and exceeded our expectations. It is sophisticated. It is beautiful and it is in... More

We planned out visit to the Basque area to include a two night stay at the Castillo. As a member of the Relais et Chateaux we anticipated a pampered stay that failed to occur. The hotel is located in a small town outside of Gernika. The castle is in excellent condition: modern and beautifully decorated. There is a lovely courtyard... More

Had three wonderful nights at the castle to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. The castle is just superb and the room we had in the tower was stately. The staff were very hospitable and the service top class. We were treated like a king and queen. The food was better than winning professional Masterchef food we have eaten in the... More

It should almost be enough to say that this 8th Century castle complete with a moat and ramparts is a delightful step back into time. But it is more than that.. It is a modernized version of paradise set in a wooded area where quiet and personalized service is taken to the nth degree to make you feel like a... More

We stayed one night at Castillo de Arteaga on our way between Bilbao and San Sebastian. Our room was the top floor of one of the towers with a sun deck overlooking the nature reserve next door. The staff were friendly, the restaurant was good but far from the best in the area.

There is no hotel like this anywhere. This isn’t like most castles/chateaus, where once you are inside, it’s just another nice space. You are in a castle, even when you are in your room, you know it. Stay in one of the turrets with private roof decks, it’s only a small splurge. Friendly staff. Comfortable beds/linens, good showers. Breakfast was... More

We just returned from a 2 week driving vacation through Northern Spain and a bit of southern France. Our 3 night stay at Castillo de Arteaga was a highlight on a trip filled with wonderful experiences. The property consists of several rooms in the main keep (which also houses the restaurants, reception and library) and additional rooms in each of... More

It isn't easy to find, but when you drive up to the Castle, you won't believe you get to stay there. Our room was in one of the corner towers and included a spiral staircase to a private roof-deck. Spend some time walking around the area. There is a bird blind down a path past a pasture of sheep that... More

We stayed two glorious nights here in one of the towers - with our own mini pool. Very luxurious. Dinner on the first night was great and we spent the following morning enjoying our 'room' before a short drive to the coast the following afternoon. Very helpful owner and staff made the three of us very welcome.

this place looks like the original Disney castle except it was not built by disney but restaured by Napoleon de third as a gesture of thanks for the local making his son and heir an honorary citizen of their town. worth a visit the rooms are very quirky and strange but quite romantic with a little Jacuzzi on the roof...
