Every year as a small treat to ourselves we leave the children and daily life and go to Bilbao. We found Katxi quite by accident and from our first stay (this will be our third year) found it to be exactly what we were looking for.
The hotel has individually designed, spacious rooms that are great for relaxing when you return from the hustle, bustle and liveliness of Bilbao.
Miriam and Ramon provide a personal welcome that is friendly without being intrusive. They make recommendations on where to go and what to do based on your own preferences- we joined a local degustación at the renowned Katxi restaurant (next door) and despite the fact that we were clearly "foreigners" we made to feel welcome and had a great time.
Although the setting is rural, I would definitely recommend staying here even if you want to visit Bilbao for a weekend (unless you want to sample Bilbao nightlife, of course). You can get a taxi to and from Bilbao during the day. Its about 20 mins. Alternatively, you can rent a car which gives you the option of driving to nearby coastal towns and seeing much more of the Basque Country. This gives you the chance to really relax in the evenings and wake up to the view of the Bilbao countryside.More
