“A palace with a bird-populated area at a ria”
Maitre de Maison - Garbiñe Azcuenaga - View profile
The marble whiteness of the Castillo de Arteaga, with its 13th century Gothic tower, rises dramatically out of the Basque Country’s Ria Urdaibai reserve with its narrow lush green valleys opening up into wide estuaries. Napoleon III and Eugenia de Montijo had it rebuilt when their son was proclaimed an honorary citizen of Biscay. Out of this castle, Garbiñe Azkuenaga has created a stunning hotel, masterfully combining period furniture with contemporary design. Spend your days exploring the surrounding area: cliffs, rivers, marshland and meadows. In the evening, enjoy a superb dinner in the castle's restaurant or a wine tasting in the well-stocked cellar.

Discover the hotel

This beautiful eighteenth century building, once owned by the Emperors of France, is surrounded by city walls and turrets from medieval times. Surrounded by nature in the exquisite setting of the Urdaibai estuary, it is within walking distance of the wonderful beaches of Laida and Laga, and just a few kilometres from iconic cities such as Bilbao and San Sebastian. The Castillo de Arteaga has 13 rooms, and each one is different. Guests can enjoy original interiors, with wood and stone panelling, and a varied menu based on fresh regional produce, with fish and meat taking centre stage.
