On Avenida de Ategorrieta of San Sebastian, just a few minutes’ walk from the city center, you will find Hotel Villa Soro. Its main building is an aristocratic estate from the nineteenth century that has been completely renovated and is surrounded by a large garden that is part of the city’s Historical Heritage.
The establishment has 25 rooms distributed over the two buildings that comprise the hotel: the estate and the old stables. It was sixteen years ago that the hotel first opened its doors in the year 2003 and, since then, this iconic space has not ceased to undergo renovations and improve its facilities, adapting to the needs of the most demanding guests.
Noteworthy is the effort that the hotel is making to be as sustainable as possible: in addition to having installed solar panels on the roof, the hotel has a private parking area with chargers for electric cars made by Tesla. Villa Soro offers bikes to its guests so that they can get around the city, as San Sebastian is ideal for pedaling. The city’s network of bike lanes reaches a total length of 75 kilometers and passes by the hotel.
Those who stay at Villa Soro do not only enjoy a beautiful space and the attention of excellent professionals that make their stay a real luxury; they also discover a part of Basque culture through the art and the gastronomy that surround the establishment. It is common to encounter works by Basque artists such as Iñigo Manterola and Alfredo Bikondoa, or paintings by the great Jorge Oteiza. These pieces create an enriching cultural environment for the hotel’s guests. In the hotel’s bar, the aromas and tastes are born out of the local, fresh products: anchovies from the Cantabrian Sea, wines from the Rioja Alavesa, and fresh products from the traditional markets of San Sebastian – all of which can be enjoyed in the elegant bar or on the hotel’s spacious outdoor terrace bathed by the sun.
Villa Soro is also an attractive place for the companies of the city and surrounding area, as meetings, conferences, talks, and other events can be organized there. Some of the spaces inside the original estate can be privately rented, creating a classic, refined environment. One of those private areas was home to the first Experiential Luxury Meeting held in 2018 and organized by BASQUE LUXURY.
Villa Soro catches the attention of all who pass by the estate, and it engulfs those who venture through the complex’s stately gate – a gate that acts as a boundary for the aristocratic essence of a bygone era that still lingers into the present day.
