Beauty in the Basque Country

I love featuring small hotels on Travel Lightbulb, and today's pick is a stunner. Hotel Iturregi is located in Getaria, which is a beautiful village in the Basque Country. Many guests drive down from San Sebastian (about a 30 minute drive) and France, while the hotel is just two hours from Bilbao.

Not only is it surrounded by vineyards, but it also has spectacular views of the coast and the village's lighthouse. The hotel opened in 2007, and there are just eight rooms on two floors. They're bright; spacious, and each one is uniquely decorated. There is also a stunning pool built as you can see from the photo above.

This is a fabulous place in which to relax, but there is also plenty to do in the local area. Surfing, Sailing, cycling and trekking are all available nearby. The village of Getaria is a working town with a small fishing port, but it's also a small beach resort with restaurants that specialise in barbecued fish.

Peaceful, stylish and friendly are the words that sum this place up. It's probably best for couples rather than families, as it is quiet. So if you're looking for a stunning hotel with a great location...this could be the one for you! If you want more information, visit the official website here.
