In English, “Elai etxea” might be translated as “the house of the swallow”. This alludes to the house martin nests (Delichon urbicum), a cousin of the swallow, that hang from the eves of this rural guesthouse.
The house lies in a large, private estate populated with apple, hazel and walnut trees, some of which are centuries old. The bird and wild animal hides are installed in different locations on the estate.
The views from any part of the guesthouse are splendid and despite being located in a village, the sensation of peace and quiet is paramount.
