About the property

Ulle Gorri is a Basque farmhouse, ideal to discover the Basque Country

Ulle Gorri is a beautiful hamlet, for 10 travelers, for exclusive use for the group, located in the foothills of Mount Gorbea and near the Salto del Nervión, ideal to discover Euskadi in cuadrilla. Baserri o caserío is a typical farm house in the Basque Country. Ulle Gorri has been rehabilitated recovering original materials, giving the house a unique personality that falls in love with those who visit us. The antique furniture recovered, the magnificent doors and the precious and ancient ceramic floor make Ulle Gorri a very special place to rest and enjoy.

The rural house is very well located less than 20 minutes from Vitoria, 40 minutes from Bilbao or La Rioja Alavesa, only an hour and a quarter from Donosti (San Sebastián) or Pamplona and with an easy access only 10 minutes from the exit of the AP68 motorway.

It has a large living room with fireplace, a beautiful kitchen and pantry, 5 double rooms with 4 bathrooms distributed over two floors. On the lower floor there is a room with a double bed and an integrated bathroom and on the upper floor a suite with a double bed, a bathroom and a small hall, a room with two single beds with a bathroom and two double rooms with two single beds that share bath.

Both the interior of the house, as the outdoor area that has a field with fruit trees and flower garden, are equipped to allow a rest to our mind and body and to enjoy what surrounds us without stress: mini music chain , with a selection of CDs, books, magazines, maps and tourist information of the area.

It has TV and free WiFi throughout the accommodation and an outdoor parking area with capacity for 5 vehicles.

The art also has its space in Ulle Gorri: A work created by 4 renowned artists, belonging to the exhibition Gernika 2017 of the MH Art Gallery in Bilbao and impressionist photographs made by Ana decorate the walls.

Our commitment to the environment has led us to install a boiler system by biomass that provides a very comfortable heat, LED lighting and the use of ecological products for the care of the garden and fruit trees.

From our farmhouse we want to offer a unique stay to travelers who want to know the Land of the Basques, with a different perspective than the tourist, from the hand of an exclusive host / guide who would accompany you on this private trip to know our culture, traditions, local parties, history, heritage and the most beautiful places of our land that we love deeply.

Contact us and we will propose you a customized trip to "discover Euskadi en Cuadrilla".

From Ulle Gorri, with boots on, we can walk many routes, all very beautiful and suitable for all types of walkers. It is a privileged area for large marchers who can link different routes and continue the march as long as they wish.

The routes that we propose, with the help of Iñaki, will allow you to get to know our closest surroundings and the customs, histories and traditions that make it so special, with or without walking sticks of Nordic walking and always enjoying that special moment that brings us nature in its purest state.

Urkabustaiz is a place unknown to many, even in the Basque Country. Plains and high landscapes that allow a spectacular panoramic view of the mountains and mountains that surround it. Between ravines, on cliffs that fall to the void, the lands settle down creating a gigantic meadow that a mosaic of walls grids organizing a beautiful drawing of pastures.

It is a beautiful sea of ​​meadows, in which the roads, excellent for practicing Nordic Walking, run through a corridor of stone walls, between horses and flocks of sheep latxa.

1. Sea of ​​Meadows and Profile of the Sierra

Nordic walking / hiking route that starts from the Baserri Ulle Gorri through grassland paths that run through stone walls and along paths with magnificent views of the Sierra Salvada, Orduña and the Arrastaria Valley. The quiet path that we walk through the sea of ​​meadows, crosses a gallery forest on the edge of the Sierra profile, through flat landscapes of great beauty. We will visit the old trenches of the civil war. NW canes are rented.

2. The sources of the Nervión and the path of the wolves, Otxobide.

Hiking / nordic walking route that starts from Ulle Gorri to walk the path of the wolves that will take us to the sources of the Nervión, passing by the unknown Gibijo wolfhound. From there we will follow the course of the river in its original channel to the impressive Salto del Nervión and the lobera of Mount Santiago. NW canes are rented.

Weekend outings throughout the year, preferably after heavy rains or during the thaw to enjoy the impressive leap in its splendor.

3. Going up the Nervion

Hiking trail that starts from Ulle Gorri to descend through the Bagate pass, where an old path begins that reaches Delika and was used until recently. We follow the course of the river through the canyon to the Salto del Nervión, if its waters leave us. Weekend outings throughout the year, preferably when the river does not carry much water and in autumn in which the forests we cross are at their peak.

Four. Water route: Gujuli waterfall, Lamioxin lagoon towards the waterfalls of the Hayedo de Altube.

With our boots on from Ulle Gorri, we head towards the top of the Cascada de Gujuli, an incredible gap in the earth where the waters jump and enter the forest. We approach a dream place, the Lamioxin Lagoon, so fascinating that it is not surprising that the popular imagery relates it to the "lamias" (geniuses of the forest). We continue until we enter the Hayedo de Altube to discover one of its most hidden gems, the Altube Waterfalls. A fascinating and evocative walk that we will always remember.

Among the places of interest around Baserri Ulle Gorri we highlight:

• The Leap of the Nervión.

• Gibijo's lobera.

• Gujuli waterfall.

• Lamioxin Lagoon.

• Altube waterfall.

• Hayedo de Altube.

• Delika Canyon.

• Orduña.
