Your stay at Logis Hotel Donamariako Benta
The Luzuriaga-Badiola family settled in Donamaria with a project: To fulfil their dream of living in the country, specifically in Navarre. To restore a pretty 19th century stone house, and open its doors to people who want to eat or stay there. After beginning with the restaurant, the following year they opened the little Hotel in the neighbouring house, and so their project took shape under the name Donamariako Benta, rural hotel and restaurant. Imanol and Elizabeth created this way of life and they now guide their daughters, who have witnessed the whole process and which has undoubtedly influenced them in their academic studies. With a degree in tourism, Lorea attends to the dining room in a professional and welcoming manner. A graduate of the Luis Irizar cookery school, Haizea manages the restaurant with wisdom and enthusiasm. We look after our clients’ stay with great care: Our family personally attends to breakfast, the preparation of activities, excursions, visits…and, in addition, we prepare the meals with professionalism. It includes: 5 pleasant double rooms with full bathroom, TV, wi-fi, hairdryer, heating, Breakfast room with a fireplace, “honesty bar”, music and all sorts of books. Private parking for the hotel. Bicycle storage. The Restaurant is located in the former stables of the 19th century stone building, with a lovely rustic atmosphere. Surrounded by 2 trout rivers, planted with huge weeping willows and various types of trees, the garden is the family’s passion. There is a magical place for children, the games room where, after eating their children’s menu, they can play and have fun, particularly in winter.
