“Beautiful house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

The Landarte has a personality all of its own, the decor is bright and very original. Our room was beautifully furnished with unusual items, was clean and peaceful. We were able to have breakfast outside on the terrace, which has views of one of the bays in Zumaia.The breakfast itself was delicious, well presented (like everything here!) and plentiful. Mark was extremely helpful providing guide books etc and checked out train times without us asking after we had mentioned this at breakfast. We were not overly impressed with Zumaia itself when we arrived, it was more of an industrial fishing port than we had expected, however it did grow on us slightly during our stay. Although we would not want to spend a lot of time in the town it was very handily placed for the beautiful coastline with it's fascinating geology and also an easy journey by train to San Sebastian and other towns. The Landarte is in a lovely position on the hillside just outside the town with lovely gardens, and a small balcony for the guests to use. Overall a great visit to this area, with friendly helpful hosts.

We stayed for 2 days at Landarte, and we just loved it! The view over the ocean, the quietness of the place, the personality of the house and the colourful originality of the rooms, and, last but not least, the lovely host, Isabelle, who welcomed us in a cheerful and most friendly fashion, all these points contributed to make us think we should go more often to the Basque country. We'll be back, no doubt!

My family and I have just returned from our fourth stay at this delightful hotel. The treatment is helpful and friendly; the house itself is a treasure; and the rooms are clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay, as always, and we will certainly return.

Lovely, beamed house decorated in a bright and colourful style with lots of large paintings in the guest seating areas and in the rooms. The house is in a picturesque location on a hillside so it is quiet but within around 10 minutes walking distance of the coastal town of Zumaia and its restaurants and bars.

We stayed in Room 5 which had a balcony with views of the beach and sea, a comfortable bed and clean, bright en-suite bathroom.

The breakfasts were tasty and Mark was very helpful and booked tables in restaurants for us which was much appreciated when we walked to the fishing village of Getaria for lunch, as the restaurant we had chosen was very popular. Nice coastal scenery and vineyards in the countryside nearby and only a 40 minute train journey to San Sebastian.

Room Tip: If you want a balcony, ask for Room 5

A beautiful B&B in an old restored medieval farmhouse. The inside is quite surprisingly modern, very tasteful. All the rooms are different and have there own theme. The surrounding countryside is lovely and geologically interesting. A car is necessary and then you also have the great cities of Bilbao and San Sebastian close by

Although the we didn't have too much sun at the time of year our stay at Landarte we will never forget because of the beautiful room and surroundings and the great service from Elena and Mark.It was also a welcome surprise that Mark spoke fluent Dutch and gave us many ideas where to go to in the area.

We spent a very enjoyable week with friends at Landarte totel in Zumaya near, San Sebastian. The hotel is beautifully situated above the port with great views. The well restored and excellently equipped old farm house with tastefully selected decorations makes it one of the best rural hotels we have visited. If you want to visit the Basque region, from San Sebastian to Bilbao this is the central location you’re want, beautiful cities and musea are all within an hour’s drive and the excellent Basque kitchen is to be found at numerous locations from standard restaurants to 3 star Michelin places, all with great food and services and moreover at surprisingly affordable prizes.
We found our wonderful hosts more than happy to supply us with all the information we could dream of.
