I'm not familiar with the property as it is fairly new. It actually just opened at the end of June and is a member of Relais du Silence. It was designed as a luxury get-a-way, located just west of Tolosa, and about 40 minutes south of San Sebastian-Donostia, depending on traffic.

The locations not bad, depending on what you are planning on doing while in the area.

Lovely hotel, not recommended if you almost want to stay is San Sebastian as you were thinking lately. Very nice for a relaxing weekend at countryside. You might take a bit longer than 25 minutes to the city center (40 aprox), and need to use parking in the city. Very similar is Villa Soro, and much closer to the city.

If you are thinking about rest, relax, no noise and peacefull area, good idea.

Yes, we are thinking about staying here for a couple days trlaxing and exploring the countryside using this hotel as a base. U r correct, Robert, the owner told us they opened in June 2009. After stayng at Iriate Jauregia we would go to San Seb and stay at the Maria Cristina for a couple days. We did not plan to drive into San Seb as day trips from the IJ. thanks for the information.

Knowing both hotels, I would opt for the Villa Soro over the Maria Cristina any day, but if you want to be right downtown, it's not too bad.

You might take a look at Maribel's Guide to the País Vasco. It hasn't been updated for a couple of years, but most to the information is relevant as to where to eat, what to see, etc.

Thanks, Robert -- I have been using Maribel's guides...they are fantastic. We're using Starwood points for our stay in San Seb @ the Maria Cristina. The Villa Soro looks lovely, but it would be a bit out of our price range even if we weren't using points for our stay at the Maria Cristina.
