|Minimum Stay||2 - 4 nights|
Mertxe is a wonderful owner and is right on the property at all times. This is a rural area and one that you can get away from it all. An absolutely stunning place with several different quaint cottages to choose from. We were in the main farm house. Our boys loved playing with Mertxe's grandson and we enjoyed the very relaxed Basque setting. Not far from a beautiful beach, the Painted Forest, San Sebastián and Bilbao. The grocery store was about 20 min away. If you want to relax this is the place to go! This is set up for business retreats as well and has a community room for cooking and holding group training.
A beautiful location and such welcoming hosts! Such a nice change from living it up in Barcelona for five days prior to our stay! We stayed in the farm house, which actually shares walls with the owners. Fully functioning kitchen allowed us to make dinner most nights (grocery stores 15 minutes away in Gernika) instead of going out. Gernika, an adorable town, was a bit tricky for us to navigate, not just the streets, but the timing...couldn't seem to find the right day or time where everything was open. Wonderful side trips to Mundaka (20 min), Bilbao (45 min), and San Sebastián (1hr 30 min). The only reason I don't give this five stars is because the beds were VERY hard queens, and I would have liked a king size mattress to share with my husband.
Very flexible, friendy and helpful owner Mertxe and her sons did a lot to make us feel very much at home at the large house Exteaundi. They helped us with good advices where to hike, what do in the area and where to find the closest supermarkets. The house was lovely and carefully renovated and the modern, tasteful bathrooms matched perfectly into the antique building structure, not to speak of the nice pool, spa and sauna.
We enjoyed a very peaceful and quite (no traffic noise) holiday, relaxed perfectly.
Would come here more often if it were not so far away.
Esta fantástica casa rural, es un paraíso de tranquilidad, ideal para desconectar del stres de la ciudad y el trabajo. La piscina, la sauna y el spa, te dan el resto... Muchas gracias a Mertxe y su hospitalaria familia, en cuanto podamos volveremos.
