País Vasco - Basque Country

After spending the first week or so staying in city centers, I thought it would be a fun surprise to stay in a rural bed and breakfast in Basque Country. The house, Arotz-Enea, was built in the early 1500’s. It is nestled in the foothills near Hondarribia and the Cantabrian Sea. After being in the city for so long the beauty and peacefulness of the house and landscape was very impressive. Everything was fresh, cool and wholesome. The rooms were simply charming and it was an intriguing experience sleeping in a house that is about 500 years old. In the morning we had breakfast in the “new part” of the house. The “new part” was built in the 1640’s!
