A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

As I went to write this review, I took a look at the pictures posted of this beautiful house and smiled recalling how much we enjoyed our stay here. As lovely as the pictures are, the house exceeded our expectations. Six of us stayed for a week recently, and enjoyed our selves immensely. We ate breakfast each morning outside on the terrace at the back, and each evening retired there to have a drink while planning the next day. Lots to do, being within an easy drive of Bilbao, San Sebastian, Pamplona, St Jean de Luz and the beautiful coastal drives. The house is very comfortable and very clean, with a wonderfully equipped kitchen, the grounds are large and the lawns and trees were immaculately trimmed.

Our host Joxeanjel was gracious and welcoming, and took a lot of time helping us to settle in, promptly re-appearing when the wifi did not immediately come up, solving the problem by contacting the service provider, and getting service sorted out almost immediately. He made it clear that we should call if anything else was needed, but nothing was. We had an excellent dinner just down the hill at Zuberoa.

Just a note that in finding the house, our GPS systems (both Garmin) could not locate it, but when we got home and programed it into our Tom-Tom, it had no trouble. But it did not matter too much, one car managed to luck into finding the house and our host just jumped into his vehicle and drove out to escort the other car to the house from the village.

A wonderful house and a great holiday.

Thanks!

grand country house

  • 5 of 5

Nine of us arrived from Australia, Italy and Colombia to a very warm welcome from our host Joxeanjel. His home is meticulously presented and luxuriously appointed near Oiartzun with the Camino de Santiago and the old silver mine railway bike track passing by the front gates. We loved the barbecue facilities, the bicycles, the countryside and of course the wonderful food available in the Basque region. My only regret, we didn't make it to Zuberoa. I would highly recommend this property to families and groups.

Thank you, your house made our stay special!

  • 5 of 5

The location is very good, in few minutes you are on the beach, the house was very clean and well-maintained. The owner is very friendly and helpful.

We are planning to go back there next year! It was a wonderful experience! My little son had a lot of space to play, it feels like home to us!

Wonderful stay in an elegant, very high end home

  • 5 of 5

We united family of 10 adults and 4 little kids (converging from North America and Europe) for a wonderful week at Pagaldegarai Etxea. We were greeted by Joxeanjel, who is friendly and professional, and he gave us a tour (as one would give friends a tour) of the immaculately clean house. The finishings are all extremely high end, and the house is equipped with everything we needed - and more - with the very hospitable owners leaving their lovely glasses, plates, books etc for use by their guests. We cooked for the big group every night in the wonderful kitchen, and had many happy "aperitifs" in the garden while the kids loved running around and playing soccer (all fenced in, very safe). There is a great bike/running trail just outside the gates (and bikes for use at the house). The game room in the basement (complete with a sort of Basque squash court) was a huge hit with the kids and got a lot of use. Lots of bedrooms, all very nicely appointed, with lots of bathrooms (a must with all the people we had in the house, and we never ran out of hot water!). There is no shortage of spectacular day trips in the area, on both the French and Spanish side of Basque country. All told, we had a wonderful trip, and would have no hesitation in recommending this beautiful rental to friends.

Lovely country retreat

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic stay for 7 nights. We were a group of 11 people (3 families) and found the accommodation almost perfect. There were spacious areas to congregate together, and also small and cosy areas for some quiet retreat time depending on what you wanted to do. The house is very well situated - a 5 minute walk up a fairly steep hill to the charming village of Oiartzun where you find a fantastic coffee shop, well equipped small grocery stores and restaurants: the environment was rural and peaceful. For an urban 'hit', however, the city of San Sebastian was an easy 15 minute drive away. The house was very clean and well equipped for the most part - the important things were all there: very comfortable beds and quality linens, fluffy towels, luxurious bathrobes and quality furnishings. My only disappointment, and the reason I give a 4 star rating instead of 5 stars was that there were no chef's knives in the kitchen! This was a major disappointment. I made the owner, Joxe (pronounced "Ho-chay" for the record!) aware of this on our 2nd day there, and he assured me he would have knives available for the next tenants. We still had another 5 nights to stay there so I don't think it should have been too much trouble to provide some knives for us. Aside from this our host, Joxe, was wonderful in all respects. He provided excellent communication when we were going through the booking process and provided a thorough tour of the house when we arrived. We inevitably had a few questions during our stay which were answered promptly.

I would not hesitate to recommend this property and would stay here again if I was in the area with friends!

A luxurious yet cozy house

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Pagaldegarai was perfect - the house is very spacious and all 12 of us were very comfortable. Its impressive size does not prevent it from feeling like a real home. It has a large dining room and living room, as well as a big private yard, so we could easily spend time together or find our peace and quiet separately in its many nooks and corners.

The kitchen is very well-equipped, so you can shop around for the great produce of Basque country and cook your own tasty meals. The house also has an impressive library. The surrounding area is quiet and rural - there's a lovely hiking/bicycle trail right outside the front gate. The host, Joxe Angel, was very helpful in providing everything we needed - including recommendations for nearby restaurants.

A very recommended stay!
