The history of the Basque Country nor the lifestyle of its people can be understood without the caseríos (country houses). They have played a key role in the evolution of society throughout history to the present day.
We offer you a chance to visit two country houses of our region, taking advantage of the hospitality of its inhabitants, you will be able to see where they live, explore their house and the surroundings, see what they grow and produce and how they do it and how not, taste and buy their star product: Idiazabal cheese.
And all this in a superb natural setting!
