Fodor's Review

This handsome group of hillside farmhouses is among the province of Vizcaya's most exquisite hideaways. The lower farmhouse, Mendibekoa ("lower mountain" in Euskera), has stunning rooms, an elegant breakfast room, and a glassed-in terrace overlooking the valley. Normally closed in winter, the hotel will open for groups of six or more. At the restaurant Mendigoikoa (upper mountain), heavy beams loom overhead and a fire usually crackles in the far corner. The pichón

de Navaz a la parrilla (Navaz wood pigeon cooked over coals) and the txuleta de buey (beef chop) are memorable. The restaurant is closed on Monday and doesn't do dinner on Sunday.
