Extraordinary!

  • 5 of 5

You may never find better hosts.

Attention to detail, generous, helpful, knowledgeable, friendly, warm, aware of your needs, etc.

I had a wonderful stay in the Glasshouse. The space was impeccable: clean, safe, more quiet than my home in a small town in Colorado. Everything you need is here. The location is also incredible. You could spend a lifetime discovering the abundance. If you are going to Bilbao, stay here for part, most or all of your stay if you can. You will be happy you did!

A memorable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful part of Spain for many reasons: the incredible natural beauty of the Basque coast, the fascinating history, the unbelievably good food, the wine, the many activities both on the beach and inland, the access to other parts of the coast. However, the most important factor making it special was the exceptional hospitality and friendliness of the hosts, Alicia and Igor, and their lovely family. They were hospitable, helpful, friendly, interested and just the perfect hosts. And the apartment is perfect - clean, full of light, inviting, comfortable and stocked with all the necessities, from the modern kitchen to the many travel brochures and maps.. Sitting on the patio surrounded by the beautiful landscaping was a dream. It was just the perfect oasis to come back to after long days of exploring this beautiful area.

We have wonderful memories of our stay and hope to return in the future to make more!

A can't miss place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Alicia and Igor and family are delightful lovely people and made us feel so welcome in their beautiful apartment. They made our visit unforgettable with their friendly and helpful energy.

They are easy to communicate with and provided excellent recommendations for hiking, eating and sight seeing.

The apartment is nicely decorated with lots of natural light and color. It was exceptionally clean and definitely reflects the photos accurately.

The location is perfect for exploring the Basque country and being close to the beach. We were only able to stay 2 days and that was only because there was a cancellation. We would have loved to stay longer and hope to return next year.

We would highly recommend this property.

What an outstanding place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week recently, Alice and Igor could not have been better hosts. Gave us tons of tips on restaurants, where to go, what to see. They are very proud of where they live and rightly so. The apartment is large, clean and bright, with a fantastic oasis of a back yard. Nature and beaches are very close, with so much to see within an hours drive it was a perfect location. If you get the chance to come to Basque country, stay here!

Vacances au Pays Basque Espagnol 2013

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup appécié notre séjour dans cette belle région de Biskai. L'apartement et l'accueil chaleureux des propriétaires n'y sont pas étrangers. L'appartement est très spacieux, aéré, lumineux et situé dans un environnement très calme et reposant. Il est très bien équipé et très agréable à vivre. Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et ne sont pas avares de conseils et on dispose également d'une importante documentation concernant tous les sites et loisirs de la région. Excellente adresse. Nous y retournerons.

A PERFECT LOCATION TO EXPLORE THE BASQUE COAST

  • 5 of 5

Alicia and Igor and their family made us feel very welcome to their delightful unit. it was very well appointed and imaculately clean. The garden setting was a great place to relax and review one day's exploration while planning the next.

Alicia has several excellent folders of local information. A week is just not long enough to explore this intriguing area. The unit is ideally situated to explore the Basque coast with its wonderful beaches and historic fishing villages. It is also perfectly placed to venture into the famous Basque cities of Gernika, Bilbao and San Sebastian to taste Basque culture and indulge in tapas and sangria, or Liqor 43.

Alicia's advice on the best way to get into these cities, where to park, and how to make the most of a short, one day visit was invaluable and took the angst out of our visits to them. She and Igor were genuinely interested in our adventures and when they had established our interests were able to help us make the most of our all-too-short stay.

As retirees, we found this the perfect place to end our second visit to Spain.

North of Spain (Basque Land) . Bilbao 40 km and 1 hour to San Sebastian _

Our village (Ibarrangelu 48311)  which you can look on google earth is situated in the The Busturialdea Urdaibai region which is a unique natural treasure in the Basque Country. In the very heart of Bizkaia, it is a natural area which, due to its size and degree of conservation, is the most important wetland area in the Basque Country. Declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1984, it is a place where the maritime and rural ambience combines with culture and nature to create a paradise, where humans and nature coexist in a framework of respect and sustainable development.

Our house is in a group of 7 semi-detached houses with view to the mountains. We rent the lower floor with the garden which is private to you. You also have a private parking place for the car and a gym to be used with the owners. We live upstairs so we are around for any questions or helping you with your holiday plan.

The place is very quiet with a little river at the end of the garden.

The beaches are 2 km away but the coast and clifts are 500 m just walking up the village and there are many walking paths from the house.
