Our beautiful Basque mountain farmhouse, near the Baztan Valley, (less than an hour from San Sebastian and Pamplona) lies at the centre of 200km of walking and hiking routes, straight from the farmhouse door. For the past 18 years we have run house-parties for walkers (and linguists) from all over the world which combine themed self-guided/guided walks on Basque gastronomy, mountain culture and pagan traditions. We ALSO specialise in total immersion Spanish language house parties for adult learners of Spanish. Our farmhouse has just 5 en-suite guest rooms and all our holidays are small-scale offering the benefit of our personal experience. Out of season guests can join us on a B & B basis. We look forward to meeting you! Georgina, Inaki and Marion.

I can highly recommend hiking in the Pyrenees with Georgina. The hiking was wonderful and the nature and views were spectacularly and Georgina was a great guide. We had a great week, with nice food, wine and company.

I had wonderful week with Georgina and Iñaki, and of course all the other wonderful guests sharing my experience. It was well organised but never fussy. We had wonderful walks and incredibly funny evenings around the table. We went out every day and the whole group worked out well together. Very fond memories of the week there. Oh yes my... More

Our Spanish Immersion and Walking week was truly magical. It was a great mix of walking in breath taking mountains, experiencing Basque culture, sampling delicious food and practising Spanish in a safe environment. Our hosts, Georgina and Iñaki worked tirelessly to make our week a fun filled one. They were hugely patient and encouraging in helping us practise the Spanish... More

From the second I was picked up from the airport to when I was dropped off a week later, Georgina, her family and friends couldn't do enough to make me feel at home. I was initially a bit nervous about travelling solo to a part of Spain that is (undeservedly) unknown in the UK but I needn't have worried. Everything... More

Came home from the week 2 days ago, but have left part of my heart in the Basque country. Its a fantastic week of walking in the most beautiful surroundings, the Pyrenees, being hosted most generously by Georgina and Inaki, for whom nothing is too much trouble, including the retrieval of my glasses which I lost on a 3 hour...

In August 2016 I have joined one week Spanish Language Beginners Course at Pyrenean Experience and I can really recommend this course! The combination of Spanish Language and hiking in the beautiful landscape of the Pyrenees is a perfect combination of learning language and enjoying the nice scenery and people. Besides that, Georgina and Inaki are a great team to... More

The self guided walking was wonderful and made easy by Georgina's maps and written route instructions. She went out of her way to show us the Basque culture and scenery. Particularly memorable was the village festival in Elgorriarga with guild dignitaries in cloaks and dancing Joaldunak, mushroom competitions and free flowing cider. The rooms were very comfortable and the meals... More

My husband and I have just come back from a marvellous week with Georgina and her family. The scenery around the area is fabulous and we had some fantastic walks as well as some wonderful food!
