We could be quite pleased with Atxurra’s unique setting combined with the warmth of the service. But the team headed by Iñaki Madariaga is determined to find the absolute best.
“We try to make the guests – a large number of them from central Europe and Madrid – feel that they are in a good hotel but at the same time that they feel at home. Madariaga insists that service is a priority at Atxurra, as well as the quality of the materials and local foodstuffs. Furthermore, all the internal processes at Atxurra are carried out with an absolute commitment to sustainability.
“Those who come to Atxurra are middle-aged people who are looking for peace and quiet and to disconnect. We facilitate it for them”, smiles Madariaga.
