Fernando, Jesús and Alaín are keen to make your stay a happy one, here in one of the most ‘family’ of Vizcaya’s small hotels, built in 1911. You couldn’t better the position, either, right by the fish market and a step from the beach of a deep inlet carved by the Cantabrian sea.
An open galleried frontage lets in the ever-changing light, encouraging contemplation of sand, sea and the church tower of Santa María. Bedrooms and bathrooms are being renovated: some face the sea but trees obscure the view; others have balconies overlooking the market square or hotel courtyard.
Set yourself up for the day on a plentiful breakfast of fruit, pastries and cakes, ham, eggs, cheese, yogurt, fresh orange juice and hot coffee. This place is a great launchpad from which to explore the wildlife rich Urdaibai Biosphere Reserve and that magnificent coastline.
