Information Arruan Haundi
Arruan-Haundi is a restored old farm, historic patrimony, which is located in the Valley of Lastur, a place surrounded by mountains, trees and meadowlands.
Just 9 kilometres from the sea and in the geographical centre of the country. In 1999, the farm was considered Centre for Rural Reception within the framework of the European Program Atlantis. Therefore, we have diversified our lodge-possibilities and activities like:
Visit to the renewable energy park
Multiadventure at lastur and on the river deba
Biodiversity, recuperation of indigenous aninalis
The main activity is the ecological cattle raising and agriculture.
We have no more cows but pottoka (basque horses), that keep the mountain clean as well as play with every one who is visiting us, and even they are learning how to carry children on their rump... we work on it! Furia and Euri are both already breaked horses and are ready to go for a walk by carriage.
In the season, we make cheese with sheep-milk, and in summer, as usual, we make bread, butter, cow-cheese, jam, etc. And we have also sausage and ecological porc and lambmeat,eggs, cider, txakoli (basque white wine) and very good Rioja wine.
Visitors of our valley can be lodged on the farm, and can choose between the two guesthouses (for 4 or 6 people, extra bed possible) or to camp in the meadow around the farm.
Likewise, to “slow” travellers riding horses, by bike or just walking, we propose “sleep on straw”, where you can have a rest in the barn as well as the horses, take a shower and recover your strength eating home-made cheese, bread and wine, to continue your way when you are well again.
In the reception centre, you find some information about other interesting places in the country as well as where to eat very good and cheap.
We do our best to make you feel like coming back.
What to do
Arruan Haundi is an old building (16th century) that could be an ironworks (called Arrubia) and that nowadays is a farm with ecological activities.
We think the farm is about 400 years old, and we are working today to keep it alive for at least the same...
With the effort we do daily, we try to promote the autochthonous biodiversity and fauna. At the farm, there are "latxa" sheeps, pottoka horses (basque race) and "euskal txerri" (pigs). All of them are breeded in the open air; that way they help to preserve the mountain and fields around the farm.
