  • Description


    We are a couple (40 & 41) who live in an old house (baserri) in the Basque Country. We rebuilded it ourselves (with a lot of help) as ecological as possible. We have things to repare and rebuild.

    We live in the countryside, 20 kms away from Bilbao and 8 from the coast.

    The closest town is Mungia (3 minutes by car), where there are all type of services, as banks, restaurants, shops and buses to Bilbao every 15 minutes.

    We try to consum ecological products from our garden, or from local shops and farmers.
    We have a wood oven to make bread and cookies. we sell them in a village shop and responsible consum groups.

    Travellers will benefit being in a quiet place to relax, where you can go for a walk, cycling or be resting.

    The city of Bilbao is 20 minutes by bus from Mungia. Bakio and Bermeo (towns on the coast with port and beach) are 15 minutes by bus from Mungia too. We can take you to the town if you need, or share our bycicles.

  • Help


    We would like 1 person or a couple to help us with some different things, as building, general maintenance, gardening, etc... so we can fit or adapt to any kind of people.

    At the moment we have to move a mound of stones to continue building a low wall in the garden. we also have to do some repairings, and other little things.

    The idea is to volunteer 3-5 hours per day, in a flexible way.

    We offer you food and accommodation.
