Located 5 minutes outside the centre of the beautiful Basque fishing village of Getaria up on the slopes overlooking the vinyards & the Bay of Biscay. Stunning views, whatever the weather, and guaranteed peace and quiet.

Easy access from main motorway A8 either through Zumaia exit coming from the West, or Zarautz exit coming from the East. In both cases, the house is 15 minutes from the motorway.

San Sebastian is 25 minutes away to the East via the A8, and France a further 10 minutes. Biarritz is 40 minutes from the house. In the opposite direction, Bilbao is just under 1 hour away.

Daily flights to/from London Stansted (Easyjet), Heathrow (Vueling) and Manchester (Easyjet) available for Bilbao airport (1 hour from house). Ryanair fly from Stansted into Biarritz, also just under 1 hour from house.

Ferries from Portsmouth to Santander (1.75 hours from house) also available.

TGV from Paris to Hendaye (30 minutes from house) takes 5 hours.

This is a beautiful part of the world, combining mountains, lush green valleys and wonderful beaches all within a very short distance of the house.

The gastronomic delights of the Basque contry need no introduction, and some of the finest fresh seafood restaurants you will find anywhere are on your doorstep in Getaria. Zarautz and, of course, the Old Town in San Sebastian are great places to visit and sample the traditional pintxos.

For a special treat, you have restaurants of the calibre of Arzak, Mugaritz and Akelarre within 30 minutes drive should you wish, or if you prefer marvellous freshly grilled fish, a 5 minute drive down the hill to one of the excellent restaurants in Getaria will not leave you disappointed.

Hill walking, golf, a variety of water sports (especially surf) and, of course, enjoying the beach are all available minutes away.

Further afield, Bilbao and San Sebastian offer a wide variety of cultural activities, museums and first class shopping to enjoy, as well as their own particular atmosphere.

Again, on your doorstep in Getaria is the spectacular museum celebrating the life and works of one of Getaria's most famous sons : the great fashion designer Cristobal Balenciaga.

For those wishing to get to know the richness of the Basque culture more, trips inland to visit the many beautiful villages and valleys of the seven Basque territories will provide some great days out.

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this beautiful house on our trip to Spain, between visiting Barcelona and Madrid. The pictures do not do justice to this lovely spot. Our hosts, Amaia and Mark made sure that we had everything we needed. When we arrived, it was a little chillier that we expected and they came over that evening to assure that we knew how to operate the heat as well as offering to lay fires in the two fireplaces. The views from the terrace are breathtaking. The bedrooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated and the bathrooms and showers are the nicest we had our entire trip. We had planned on visiting San Sebastian and Bilbao while here but actually ended up staying in the area. There are wonderful restaurants in the village and a day trip to St. Jean de Luz was very enjoyable. If ever in this area again, we will certainly plan a return visit.

What a view, what a house!

  • 5 of 5

If you are considering renting this home, trust the photos! Amaia and her family have created a wonderfully warm and inviting property set in a stunningly beautiful part of the Basque coast. We walked along well-marked country trails to both Getaria and Zarautz, and had incredible seafood dinners in Getaria, at Elkano and Kaipe. And Amaia had abundant information for every possible question we might have. Finally, the beds are excellent. You will sleep well!
