After a 1000mile journey from England we had a wonderfully warm welcome from Filipe and Isabel who were extremely helpful and obviously very proud of the mill and the surrounding area of Navarre. The cottage is also ideal for pets and our two Border Collies settled into their new home well. The tour of the mill and the complementary thalli (I think!) corn pancakes and local cider were very welcome and much enjoyed. Filipe explained that the village of Amaiur is culturally and historically very significant to the Basque region and is well worth exploring. All in all a very comfortable cottage in an ideal location for exploring the Baztan valley. ( For any English visitors who bring pets and need to find a vet before their return to England their is an excellent one just to the south of Irurita)
Momotegi offered everything in an accomodation that my husband and I could hope for. The house was charming, had a terrace with amazing views, beds that were a pleasure to sleep in and hosts that could not have been nicer. It is located in a national park with spectacular hiking trails starting from the front door of the home. Olga, our host, gave us privacy, but was also available for advice, tours of her farm, friendly conversation and even invited us for lunch in her family home; we will always consider her and her family friends. It is located in a beautiful area of Pais Vasco, beneath the peaks of the Pyrenees yet a short drive to towns and shops. It is my favorite place to stay in all of Spain.
