    Description

    Hi! this is a 5 members family, with Cristina, Josu, Lier, Aretx and Unax. We live in Otxandio, a small village (1.100 habitants) in the middle of two natural parks (Gorbea and Urkiola) in the Basque Country. This is a perfect place for hiking, walking, enjoying nature and also a village close to Bilbao (51 Kms), Vitoria-Gasteiz (25 kms) and Donostia-San Sebastian (88 kms). If you're interested in Basque culture, this is the place to visit. Come and see!

    We can show you around. You'll be surrounded by mountains, this is a gorgeous place to promenade, ride a bike, hike and run. Our village is nice and lifeful, you'll really enjoy your stay. You can also visit Bilbao, Vioria-Gasteiz, Donostia-San Sebastian, Pamplona... You'll be free all afternoons. Our mother tongue is Basque, and that’s the language we use among us; however, we all also speak Spanish, and Cristina is fluent in English.

    Aretx is our oldest son, he's 12, and then we have our twins, Unax and Lier (9 years). They are autonomous and capable to stay on their own, however, Josu and I’d prefer if they had someone around while we’re at work in the mornings. If, at the same time, they could practice some English and know about different cultures, that ‘d be great. All you must do is make breakfast for the children and yourself, take a look at them now and then, and speak with them in English.
