Absolutely top location for a 'casa rural' with very caring and friendly hosts with a clear environmental and biological footprint. All rooms are equally attractive, spacious, clean and quiet except for maybe the single one on the ground floor next to the breakfast area. Place is absolutely quiet. A place you really can come to rest physically and mentally, sitting on the hill just in front of the lodge.
Cooking facilities in 'cooking house' just 30 meters next to the lodge. You can get and prepare onsite almost any self-grown artisan/natural fruit and vegetables at friendly prices.
I would say the only dissatisfier I could come up with is the 3-4 kilometer uphill road through narrow lanes (but hardly any opposite traffic) and maybe the fact that the 5 friends hardly speak anything else than Spanish. My basic Spanish is sufficient but otherwise this might be a limitation to get to know more of the background and the people which for us is always a part of the joy of our trips.
Prices have gone up by 10% last year (€149 incl VAT), probably because of the popularity but is still a good deal for what is offered.

- I am a welcoming home in keeping with the tradition that our predecessors followed, year after year, in the Basque Country. The sea and the moon bear witness to this. When the sun does not show itself and shines with little force, it will be my fire that keeps you warm. ... more less
