The Experience

This 17th-century farmhouse exudes warmth – sink into deep red sofas in front of the stone fireplace after a day’s hiking in this secluded valley strewn with pretty, whitewashed villages. You are welcomed by charming owner, José, who was born here and speaks excellent English.

Take in the views of the verdant hills from terrace over summer breakfasts of serrano ham, local cheeses, homemade cakes and jams. José can arrange horseback riding, mountain biking and tours of local cheesemakers. For dinner, traditional Basque dishes are served in the restaurant: cod-stuffed peppers, local artichokes and fresh white asparagus in season, roast lamb shoulder.

Rooms are welcoming with warm tones and traditional tiles; two have balconies overlooking the hills, another has its own sitting room and some are on the ground floor. You are far from any big towns, surrounded by tranquillity and green, a perfect rural escape.

Housed in a charming, traditional 16th century Basque building, this lovely, welcoming hotel sits in the Baztan valley with beautiful countryside views and small Basque towns and villages nearby. Beautiful living areas with huge crackling fires and a large restaurant as well as a library and pool table. There is a very pretty, large outdoor terrace. Jose, the owner, speaks excellent English.

The neighbourhood

The feel here is very rural, although the hotel is in the small village of Arizkun. The closest restaurant, Asador Ordoki, is 50m away. The larger town of Elizondo, 10 minutes' drive, has shops and restaurants; José recommends Santxotena or Galarza. A car is a must and there is plenty of parking; within a 50-minute drive reach Pamplona, San Sebastian, Biarritz, St Jean de Luz and St Jean de Pied de Port.

Local points of interest from José Mª Celayeta

  • Xorroxin, the waterfall at the source of the Bidasoa river. A circular route of approximately 2 hours, leaving from Erratzu (3 km from the hotel).
  • Señorío de Bertiz Natural Park, with its botanical garden and its leafy forest with several paths and trails for hiking.


José Mª Celayeta

Your host, José, has owned and run Hotel Señorío de Ursua for over twenty years. He grew up in this valley, in nearby Elizondo. After university in Pamplona, he returned with his family to open the hotel. José is passionate about the local culture and of course speaks Basque, as well as French and English. He will be your invaluable guide to this gorgeous valley.
