Our Farmhouse Accommodation in the Basque Country

Ongi Etorri! (Welcome)

Working with people for so many years has greatly enriched our lives and we look forward to welcoming everyone to this special area that we feel so lucky to call home.

Home-from-Home in the Basque Country

During the summer months we open our Basque family farmhouse to run our inimitable house-party walking holidays. We offer our guests a beautiful and relaxed home-from-home – or cultural ‘base-camp’ – from where to explore the inspiring mediaeval landscapes of the Basque Pyrenees.

Our Home in Ituren

Our farmhouse accommodation in the Basque Country lies to the north of Navarre and to the west of the Baztan valley. It is situated in a tiny farming hamlet near the traditional mountain village of Ituren in the Basque Pyrenees. We are surrounded by mountain farms, river valleys and over 200 km of circular hill walks which start at the farmhouse door.

Guests are lodged in a separate wing of the farmhouse which has 5 en-suite double rooms and this allows our guests full use of its open-plan kitchen, library, living and dining spaces which are encased in a large glass conservatory. There is WIFI, central heating and a log fire.

The house has enormous south-facing terraces with tables and sofas and has such incredible views over the valley that my morning cup of tea often goes cold by the time I draw myself away!

The open-house house-party ethos of our farmhouse accommodation in the Basque Country is – as far as I am concerned – the only civilised way to entertain guests at the house. But what exactly is a house-party?
