Mendieta Etxea

Mendieta-Etxea is a restored country house with 4 fully equipped apartments featuring a living-dining room, kitchen, bathroom, heating, TV, Internet, and a common space with access to the garden, etc.

It is located in the centre of Ayala Valley next to the Tower House of Quejana, a heritage point of interest; its landscape has made it a reference for those who love environmental and cultural tourism.

The guided visits to Artziniega are especially worth mentioning, a town that stands out thanks to its historic quarter, Ethnological museum and Medieval Market. So are the hikes to the Salvada Mountain Range and the Waterfall of river Nervión and Mount Santiago. The Historic Quarter of Orduña with its Custom's building, currently a modern and unique Spa, are also worth mentioning.
