Hotel Villa Itsaso
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Lekeitio
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The Villa sits high on a hill across the enclosed harbor from Lekeitio. From our apartment on the second floor, you have a wonderful view of this small fishing village, the harbor and the Bay of Biscay beyond. This is a well restored older home that now serves as a hotel and is within a short walk to the village and the many commercial venues. However, in order to enjoy the view from the room you must stand since the wall below the windows blocks the view when sitting (a small distraction). The bedroom is nicely furnished and the kitchen has all of the wares needed for preparing and serving meals.

Our family looked all over the Basque coast (from Bilbao to San Sebastian) for a magnificent small town getaway and we're so thrilled to have found Villa Itsaso!

We stayed 4 nights in Iparralde - the large suite with balcony on an upper floor. Based on some of the other reviews, I was worried that the house would be drafty or cobwebby, but this was absolutely not the case. We experienced a range of temperatures during our 5 days in Lekeitio and our room was splendid for all. Fans for cooling during the day and digitally controlled radiators for cooler nights. Perfect!

I was also worried about what the bathroom would be like (no picture on website) but it's very similar to the picture in Garraitz room. Spacious and beautiful! In fact, it should be mentioned that the website photos don't come anywhere close to displaying the full beauty of the house, rooms and location.

We could go on and on about how much we enjoyed our stay here and highly recommend it. Big thanks to Mariela and everyone at HVI!

PS - Don't miss the walk at low tide on the land bridge to the little island. A must!

I spent 3 nights in Villa Itsaso and I had a great time, Lekeitio is a small fishing village, it's a perfect place to relax, the beaches are empty and beautiful, surfers enjoying the ocean and from there we easily visited the region. Mariela is very kind and helpful host, the view from the rooms is just spectacular.

Room Tip: I stayed in " Mundu Osua", simply beautiful

We loved this place. The hotel is situated in the hills above the ocean. It's idyllic and gorgeous here. We had the first floor apartment to ourselves, which was roomy and had everything we needed. The manager, Mariella, was wonderfully accommodating. It was just what we wanted.

Arrived at 5 pm on a Sunday afternoon after having a few problems locating the hotel, common sense prevailed over Satnav.
Approach road is interestingly steep and pot holed
Hotel is wonderfully sited looking over the whole town
The car park was very full on account of (I think, a birthday party).
The hotel entrance was blocked by the party guests and so I was shown the back entrance up some dodgy stairs.
The room is very good but no glasses to drink from, no TV at all in the room (as advertised).
So I thought I'll go to to the bar and restaurant, sorry sir, no bar, no restaurant, but the happy party would probably give me a beer and some of their food if I asked!
I am waiting for Basil Fawlty to appear!.
Guess what? I went to the town.
The hotel cannot control the weather which was vile, but the room was cold and damp which was another reason for going to the town, at least when I came back a fan heater had been installed and the room became warmer.
The hotel is beautifully sited with wonderful views but my experience left me thinking something was lacking in the experience..........

Room Tip: There was no pool There was no fitness centre All rooms are quiet

This is on of the most unique places i have ever stayed in,
It is on top of a little hill overlooking the ocean. The whole place is a like something out of a fairytale. You even have a horse and a goat roaming in the garden
On top of that the rooms are very spacious, with their own kitchen which is very handy and the bed is comfy and everything is very clean and well appointed.
Yes, Wifi is not that great but this is not a place for business travel.
Mariela who welcomed us was also outstanding.

The hotel is a XIX century masterly renewed villa, which keeps its original flavor. Airy rooms, high ceilings, all rooms kitchen equipped, nice decoration and comfortable furniture. But the real point is the unlimited, gorgeous views of the surroundings, framed by the windows and balconies of the house. Helping and friendly owners complete a perfect stay. No doubt one of the best values of the Basque Coast.
