"Euskal Herriko gela ederrenak.? / Could these be most beautiful rooms in Euskal Herria (the Basque Country)?" Villa Itsaso is a Spanish version of the original name of the house, Ichaso Aldegui, which is a Basque place-name coined in the nineteenth century that literally means "place by the sea."

It is the Bay of Biscay , cradle of the great navigators of history. It is the Basque Coast, the richest of cabotage ... Biarritz, Hondarribia, Donostia/San Sebastián, Getaria, Lekeitio, Elantxobe, Mundaka and Bilbao, to name a few of the most important ports.

To its West, Urdaibai runs alongside it. Urdaibai, the only Biosphere Reserve in Basque territory, has spectacular scenery and offers opportunities for ornithologists and nature lovers. It also offers many sport activities. Continuing West, in less than an hour's drive we come to Bilbao. The same distance to the east is Donostia/ San Sebastian, where you should spend an entire day just enjoying the gastronomy, with internationally renowned pintxos (Basque tapas). For a cultural cherry on top, visit Chillida Leku or take a simple stroll through the Bella Easo.

From your room, you can gaze at the Karraspio beach with the stirring and impressive Bay of Biscay in the background; or the medieval town of Lekeitio, or the beautiful Baroque palace "Zubieta" to the south, located on the estuary near the old tide mill... All this, only a five-minute walk away.

In this charming hotel, all the rooms and function rooms that we offer you overlook the sea, with observation points, terraces and balconies.

Whether in an apartment, room or suite you will enjoy an unforgettable stay. Very special accommodation for getting to know this little country rich in culture, history and nature.

Undoubtedly the most genuine of the Basque Country and the best choice for anyone who wants to get to know us.
