    *️️️ Please contact host in Spanish

    One of the main objectives was to raise my children in a natural environment. 28 years ago I started the agrotourism business with which I receive travelers from different countries and may have the only experience of staying in a modest Basque farmhouse in active. Among my projects are to maintain the orchard and fruit trees in ecological and reforest the area with native trees in areas where other species such as the pine insignis that have fleeced the area have been cultivated. The family is composed of the couple and my two children. They work in the surroundings so we are mainly my partner and I who take care of the farmhouse.

    Uno de los principales objetivos era criar a mis hijos en un entorno natural. Hace 28 años comencé el negocio de agroturismo con el que recibo a viajeros de diversos países y pueden tener la única experiencia de alojarse en un modesto caserío vasco en activo. Entre mis proyectos están mantener la huerta y frutales en ecológico y reforestar el área con árboles autóctonos en zonas en las que se han cultivado otras especies como el pino insignis que han esquilmado el área. La familia está compuesta por la pareja y mis dos hijos. Ellos trabajan en los alrededores por lo que somos principalmente mi pareja y yo los que nos encargamos del caserío.

    I have a room for two people inside the hamlet. The common areas would be shared with the members of the house such as kitchen, WC, living room ... The kitchen was made by me and I am delighted to share my knowledge with other people as well as learn from them.
