Update Nov 5, 2016 4 Star Basque Vacation Value Northern Spain: Live like a king or queen in this castle hotel, Castillo de Arteaga. Spain remains one of Europe’s best values even in the summer.
Things to see and do in Basque country:
Visit Bilbao and see the Guggenheim Museum, Plaza Ensanche, the Euksalduna Palace, Jardines de Albia and multiple local churches.
Go boating along the coast for a totally different view of the region.
Stroll slowly through San Sebastian and Biarritz and the old quarter,
Go on a wine tour, and enjoy tasting local vintages at Vitoria and the Rioja Wine Region.
Sample the varied local cuisine.
Enjoy hiking throughout the foothills..
Take in the local cultural sights. One of the best known paintings of the Spanish civil war was Picasso’s depiction of Guernica. Visit Guernica which is only a 10 minute drive away.
My personal recommendation: I found skiing in nearby Andorra world-class. In summer months, hike in Andorra for an active vacation in one of the world’s smallest and warmly welcoming countries.
The Castle Hotel:
This 4 star castle is now a boutique hotel. It is located in a nature reserve. This is the heart of the Basque country with the beach nearby.
The castle was built in the 13th century. However, it was completely restored in the 19th century. Guest rooms have all the 21st century modern conveniences. They include air conditioning, flat-screen TV and free WIFI. Private baths come with hairdryer, robe and slippers.
Besides sampling Basque cuisine, you will find a large wine cellar to make your selections!
