On vacation or for work, alone, as a couple, with family or friends; here you will find the services and personalized treatment you are looking for.
When children began to be scarce and the building’s school function lost its meaning, a local family decided to restore all its splendor to the infrastructure by changing its didactic dedication to that of hotelry and thus create a beautiful hotel flooded with light and peace. The rooms replaced the classrooms and a charming garden came to occupy the space of the playgrounds where the children used to play.
The name of the hotel, Balea, whale in Basque, also aims to pay tribute to something else, in this case the municipality that hosts it, Ghétary, a whaling town par excellence on the Basque coast.
