About our home

Our beautiful family home was completely rebuilt in March 2019. We put a lot of effort and love in building our place , using only ecofriendly materials like hemp for the insulation, local wood for the structure and roof, oak floors, Spanish marble, artisanal cement tiles... and a couple of Ebay finds ;) .
It has everything you would need for a confortable stay. Don't be scared by the "no lamp situation" in some of the pictures :) It is all solved by now :)
The house has 3000 m2 of land with hammocks, bbq, fruit trees and a trampolin for the kids.
It is located in Barrika one of the most beautiful spots from the Basque coast with several stunning beaches 5 minutes away (La salvaje, Sopelana, Meñakoz, Barrika, Plentzia, Gorliz) and very close to lively villages. the metro station is only 2kms away which will take you to Bilbao without using the car : ) There is a local scheme of electric bike rentals and we also own a couple of bikes that you could use.

This summer we are looking for something quite specific:
-long stay 1 month +
-town house with patio/ terrace and good wifi preferably in a mediterranean village (no picky about the country: Greece, Italy, Tunisia, name it) with some amenities nearby : at least one shop:) and a couple of restaurants
-walking distance to a beach kids friendly. We would like to avoid using the car during the week while we will be mostly working from home.

Where is it?


Our home is in Barrika, a coastal area very close to Bilbao. The area is quiet and quite rural but only a few minutes by car from Sopelana and Plentzia , lively villages with all amenities and most important, both with underground stations to Bilbao so car is not needed at all times. You could also walk or bike to Sopelana (15 MIN)
The most beautiful beaches of Biscay are in this area : Salvaje and Sopelana for waves lovers and families, Gorliz and Plentzia for water sports and calmer waters... The sorroundings are trully spectacular. We lived aborad for years and it is only now that we have realised that we are trully blessed to live here.

Buzzy restaurants
So many!!
Cool bars
La Atalaya de Gardoqui, El Golfo Norte...
