Our home

Our home is a typical Souletine farmhouse located near the Saison river in Abense de Haut (near Tardets). It is a quaint village with hiking and walking trails throughout the countryside as well as near the Camino de Santiago. It is in the area of Soule in the Pays Basque, rich with Basque culture, music, food, and lifestyle. A magical place for those who love to hike, eat, and learn more about the Basques. It is also only 20 km from Spain so day trips to San Sebastian, Bilbao, Pamplona are possible. The local enterprises are primarily sheepherders making the famous Ossau Iraty fromage de brebis.
