Getaria combines the colors of the earth, the sea and the stone. Birthplace of the master couturier, Cristóbal Balenciaga, and the first sailor who went around the world, Juan Sebastián Elcano, this medieval fishing village nestling in soft hills combed by “Txakoli” vineyards is still a safe refuge port for sailors of the Bay of Biscay.
Lovers of gastronomy, oenology, haute couture, culture and outdoor activities will find options to enjoy unforgettable days in our environment: the grilled fish, pintxo bars, wineries, museums, the northern (and oldest) Camino de Santiago of the coast, and the possibility of water sports (surfing, diving and fishing).
Getaria is a good base to discover the whole Basque area. You can reach San Sebastian in 25 minutes drive, 55 minutes to Biarritz, 60 minutes to Bilbao and 65 to Pamplona. Please contact us: we will be very glad to help you to design the most unforgettable routes.
