THE LONDAIZ FAMILY
The Londaiz family were merchants and they owned one of the largest textile companies in Spain during this period. Cesárea Garbuno married Ramón Londaiz in 1863. She came from a wealthy family from the Oyarzun Valley and owned many farms and hamlets and therefore her income came from the rent for these lands.
OF THE 19TH CENTURY ARISTOCRATIC VILLA
In 2000, it was purchased by a businessman from Guipuzcoa to convert it into a hotel. Thus, three years later, the works for adapting the Villa were completed and in 2003 Hotel Villa Soro was opened. Since its refurbishment, every effort has been made to maintain the essence of the original villa. The high quality materials of its communal areas remain in place, such as the heart pine and marble flooring in the entrance, the imposing main staircase made of oak in the entrance and the wall panels and the bar in the bar area made from this same material.
