Ulle Gorri Baserria is an old basque farmhouse, located in a privileged environment in the Basque Mountains. It´s surrounded by a beautiful sea of ​​green meadows throughout the year, in the foothills of the mythical Gorbeia Mountain, near the beech forest of Altube and the Gujuli waterfall and it´s also the closest accommodation, only a short walking distance,  to the Salto del Nervión, the highest waterfall in Spain. There are innumerable activities to do during your stay with us.

Great location: less than 20 minutes from Vitoria, 40 minutes from Bilbao and La Rioja and only an hour and 15 minutes from Donosti (San Sebastián) or Pamplona and with easy access just 10 minutes away from the motorway exit.

 Ulle Gorri Baserria is part of the small village of Apregindana, with only 3 hamlets, very quiet and with sensational views. They are flat and high landscapes, which allow a spectacular panoramic view of the mountains and mountains that surround it. The paths are excellent for Nordic Walking and Hiking and run through meadows through corridors of ancient dry stone walls (Unesco Heritage), with horses pottoka (local horses)  and flocks of sheep Latxa ( local sheeps), from where the excellent Idiazabal cheese from the area comes from.

The farmhouse has a beautiful field of fruit trees, with outdoor garden furniture to enjoy the nature at its most, with hammocks and place to sit to enjoy the sunset.

The sunrise and the sunsets from the farmhouse are spectacular.

The farmhouse is surrounded by three natural spaces of the Natura 2000 network: Gorbea Natural Park, Arkamo-Gibijo-Arrastaria mountain ranges and the oak woods of Urkabustaiz. It´s a magnificent enclave for birdwatching : around 160 pairs of vultures nest on the walls of Arrastaria and it is one of the few places where Royal Kites can be watched in a great number. In spring there are also a multitude of herons and storks that come to find food in the meadows that surround the village.

The Gorbea Natural Park is the largest in the Autonomous Community of the Basque Country. The  Natural Park is a space that has special protection due to its ecological value and beauty. The great diversity of species of flora and fauna, and the elements linked to the presence of human activity over time, are the protagonists of these places, which bring together an outstanding ecological and cultural heritage. 

The Gorbea Natural Park holds within it an endless number of natural and cultural treasures. A network of trails – some starting on the Alava side and others on the Biscayan side – allow the hiker to discover the beautiful landscapes of this protected area, watch its flora and fauna and also appreciate the traditions and culture of the human beings who inhabited and still inhabit this territory. The most typical excursion is the ascent to the famous Cross.

“Beautiful house in spectacular surroundings

The thoughtfully restored house was beautiful and the views and walks in the immediate area are spectacular with an immense gorge and waterfalls. The friendly and attentive owners gave us lots of local colour! The house was warm, cosy and comfortable with unlimited firewood. With eight adults/teens we did a lot of cooking and everything in the kitchen worked well. The house is ideally situated in rural countryside but just a short drive from the cities of Vitoria and Bilbao. Throughly recommended.

Una Casa Única


Hemos estado dos noches en Ulle Gorri y nos ha encantado la experiencia. Es un caserío muy amplio y acogedor al que se le ha hecho una reforma preciosa, que manteniendo el estilo rural, tiene todas las comodidades. La ubicación de Ulle Gorri es ideal ya que está a pocos kilómetros de Vitoria, Bilbao y la Rioja Alavesa, lo que permite hacer excursiones y volver a descansar, rodeado por la bella naturaleza vasca. Un diez!
