Travel to our guesthouse lies in Ituren, Navarre offers nature lovers a walking centre in the Basque Pyrenees with 200 km of mapped walks starting at the farmhouse door. The journey here through the Pyrenees is beautiful and there are easy public transport connections to the area from San Sebastian, Irun, Bilbao and Pamplona. We also offer a free pick-up service (once a day and at a specific time) from Biarritz airport and Biarritz railway station for guests joining our programmed Pyrenean Experience Walking Holidays or Spanish Immersion Courses.
Bilbao airport is the largest international airport in the area and has an easy hourly shuttle to San Sebastian. From San Sebastian and Pamplona there is a stress free local bus service to our area with the bus company La Baztanesa . Guests wanting to join us at our guesthouse in Ituren and Basque Country walking centre should get off at the village of Santesteban /Donesztebe which is just 15 minutes from the house and we can happily pick you up there.
As you will see on the map, Ituren is a small village in the western Pyrenees in the Basque Country to the north of Navarre. Our mountain guesthouse in Ituren is actually situated 4 km from the village, high up in a tiny shepherding hamlet of about 20 people and 700 sheep! Ituren is situated just 30 minutes south of the French border, an hour south-west of Biarritz, an hour south-east of the glorious seaside town of San Sebastian and an hour north of the medieval town of Pamplona. For those travelling to our Basque Country Walking Centre by car here is the exact GPS location to be followed BUT PLEASE do not follow the directions given to the house by Google Maps as it takes you up a potholed mountain track to the house. ASK ME for easier directions to the farmhouse - unless you have a good 4 wheel drive! Our Basque Country walking centre in Ituren is not the easiest to find however if we want any social life at all (or to run a business), we have to give very clear written directions. Please ask for a well-tested directions sheet!
