Oikina is strategically located between the coastal villages of Zumaia and Getaria, just twenty minutes from San Sebastian and less than an hour from Bilbao. In this idyllic neighborhood, the Jesuits built in 1680 an estate that has remained standing until today. Having been recently renovated, the building currently houses a rural lodge, Jesuskoa, as well as a restaurant that serves only breakfasts and dinners to the lodge’s guests.
Those who visit this rustic accommodation want to be in direct contact with nature, waking up to the sound of cowbells and experiencing a night in a seventeenth-century estate. While keeping the spirit that transports guests to times gone by intact, the lodge is equipped with all the modern amenities: a charging station for Tesla cars and a universal car charging station, Wi-Fi, a meeting room and gym, etc.
Jesuskoa also has four apartments located in a second building. Lizarra (“Ash”), Pagoa (“Beech”), Sagarra (“Apple”), and Aritza (“Oak”) – those are the names of the four vacation rentals, which bear the names in Basque of the trees and fruits that can be found on the estate’s extensive property. It’s a tribute to the lush nature that exists around the estate, which includes an ecological vegetable garden and a garden with a pergola built atop centuries-old stone columns and surrounded by a natural pond. It’s no wonder that the Jesuits chose this place to build Jesuskoa “Ad maiorem Dei gloriam” (“for the Greater Glory of God”).
Barrio Oikia, Zumaia.
