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.
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.
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 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 is 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.
