Places: San Juan de Gaztelugatxe, Spain

The coastline near Bermeo, between Cape Matxitxako and Bakio, is well-known for its spectacular eroded landscape full of caves and natural rock arches and is classified as a Protected Biotype, both for the quality of the water and the historical interest of the area, which was first documented in the 11th century.

Looking at these wonderful homes, it seems that behind those doors there is a lit fireplace and someone is cooking the most delicious English tea.
