“Exceptional stay!”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We had a wonderful week in the Basque Country. The appartment was very nice, the atmosphere was great. We were very fortunate with plenty of sunny weather and enjoyed the wonderful countryside and nearby sights. The local food was exceptionally well. We felt very welcome and for sure will return for another vacation.

Highly recommended: the apartment was clean, comfortable and cozy. It was equipped with everything we needed…like we really felt like home. Beautiful garden!

The place is very peaceful, ideal to rest and it’s located perfectly to enjoy the surroundings.

On top of that, Alicia and Igor are great hosts: always friendly and helpful…thanks again for everything!

“wonderful experience”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Our stay in this place was a great pleasure. Forst of all, Alice and Igor made us feel extremely welcome, had so many good ideas what to do in the neighbourhood and further away - the style of their place is exactly how you see it in the photos and loved it, very tasteful and it was so well-equipped we did not have to ask for anything else. We arrived on a Sunday and found not only some homemade cookies but a bottle of wine plus cereal, milk, coffee and fruit for Monday morning. We had the garden to ourselves, WLAN was really good and for those who need TV: many many channels! So all in all one of the best airbnb experiences we have had yet. Thank you and gracias, Alice and Igor!!!! See you soon, so looking forward!

“Second time around even better!”
Reviewed 17 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This was our second stay with Alice and Igor and it was as good- if not better - than our first stay a few years ago. On this occasion we decided to explore the locality more than travelling to other areas ... this resulted in a very relaxing and enjoyable week. As mentioned on my previous review Alice and Igor are the ideal hosts.... they are so helpful and genuinely interested in providing a top quality experience to their guests but yet remain unobtrusive. Our walks and short drives to and from Laiga and Lada beaches allowed us enjoy leisurely walks and swims accompanied by local restaurant experiences. We highly recommend taking Alice and Igor's advice on local restaurants and our favourite this time was the local campsite canteen,,, the sardines excellent! Trips to Leikeito, Mundaka and Bermeo recommended. Alice and Igor have put so much work in to their garden and we enjoyed several evenings enjoying the afternoon reading on the loungers beside the running stream... bliss! We are already planning our third trip! Local walks suggested by Alice and Igor will bring you some breath taking views and very happy moments.

“Green and Peaceful”
Reviewed 22 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Alice and Igor could not have been more welcoming and helpful. They provided small scale walking maps, books and advice, which made our holiday. Their apartment is spacious, comfortable, well equipped and modern, with a large patio and lovely garden. The village is within easy reach of a wide range of interesting sites, but we spent many days just walking local paths through the lush unspoiled countryside and along the spectacular coast. The markets are full of top quality food, especially sea food.

“Excellent location for touring the Basque country and a wonderful apartment in a village setting.”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We felt instantly at home in Alicia and Igor's beautiful apartment. They made our holiday a great success. Alicia and Igor are very generous hosts and the apartment is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. There is a very comfortable and pretty garden for relaxing in the evenings. We cannot speak Spanish and they both speak excellent English and they gave us very helpful information, maps, guide books, suggestions for sightseeing,walking trails, shopping and restaurants. Everywhere we went we met with charming and helpful people. The restaurants have a wide variety of cuisine and are of a very good standard and the whole area is very beautiful.

“A beautiful spot”
Reviewed 10 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

It felt ,I keep we were being taken good care of by Alice and Igor right from the start. They sent a lot of local information beforehand and I was very impressed with the photos as well as written directions about how to reach the property. The apartment was beautiful with everything that we could need and more. Everything was explained very clearly. Lovely bed and linen, good kitchen and bathroom. The view from the patio was fabulous and we enjoyed sitting outside. There was a lot of oval info which was very useful. Alice was away during our stay but emailed to make sure all was alright a couple of times.
We loved the walks in the area, visiting the Guggenheim in Bilbao, the Monday morning market in Gernica, eating by the harbour in Elantxobe, the painted forest and the amazing rugged Basque coastline. Top tip. Drive and park in Gernica then get the train to Bilbao from there.
