Hidden away among the vineyards, 2km from the charming Basque fishing port of Getaria, this exclusive eight-room hotel is set in a typical, half-timbered Basque baserri (farmhouse).

Incredibly peaceful and quiet, this is a romantic place to relax and get away from it all, making it popular with couples. The vibe is akin to staying at a friend’s country house: rooms are large and ooze rustic chic, with enchanting views over the rural landscapes.

Immediately surrounding the hotel are vines, farmhouses and sheep-filled meadows, while slightly further afield is the spectacular coast, crowned by Getaria’s lighthouse.

A superb, locally-sourced breakfast is served al fresco, accompanied by birdsong, but there’s no restaurant.

From Getaria you can follow the beautiful coastal path to Zarautz (approx 3km); you’re 20 minutes by car from San Sebastian.

There are special two-night packages for touring cyclists or for fashionistas keen to visit the nearby Balenciaga Museum.
