We recently returned from Ibarluze with only praise about the property and the owner, Valentin. We were two families traveling with four children ages 7-13. According to Valentin, we were the first Americans to ever rent at Ibarluze. The house was absolutely stunning and centrally located to all the spots we wanted to visit in the Basque country - i.e., Bilbao, San Sebastian and the border towns in France. Although there was a bit of a language barrier, Valentin helped us in every way that he could. In fact, one night, he even stopped by with some of his homemade sausage and chorizos, bread and wine and helped up plan out our itinerary while in the region. His insight was invaluable. The atmosphere is quite rural - the property borders a working farm - but that is exactly what we were looking for. Our suburban children were thrilled with the chickens and the cows that roam around the property from time to time. There was ample room for them to play and run around and it was nice to have them out in the fresh-air. The views are stunning and the nearbly town of Elorrio is quiet yet charming. We found ourselves frequenting the Eroski grocery store in Elorrio which was great for all of our daily needs. We cannot say enough good things about Elorrio - it provided us with the typical Basque experience we were looking for. Anyone who stays at Ibarluze will not be disappointed. We would return again and again. Already our children are asking when we can go back!
