Landarbide Zahar is in Aia, into the Pagoeta Natural Park. The villages of Zarauz and Orio are only 5 kilometres away and San Sebastián about 29 kilometres away (just a mere 20 minutes drive). We are really in a very convenient situation for those who want to enjoy both, the mountain and the sea.
The Pagoeta Natural Park offers to our guests the possibility of trekking, watch wildlife such as red deers, `pottokas` (Basque ponies), and “betizus” (near wild cows), or the possibility to stroll over the more than 10 hectares of Iturraran Botanical Garden with around 4.000 different kinds of trees, shrubs and plants, or see a 18th century Agorregi Foundry and Mills working.
During their stay our guests will perceive the smell of saltpetre and grilled fish of traditional seaside villages such Getaria, Orio or Hondarribia, visit some solitary hermitage on the top of a mountain, experience and taste a typical Cider House menu, visiting a small, elegant aristocratic villa, or become acquainted with the beauty and dynamism of Basque cities, some of them in the vanguard of progress.
From the coast and beaches to the mountains and woods, from rural spaces to the busy urban world, all the choices are possible here at Landarbide Zahar.
