In recent times we have witnessed the expansion of a new way of accommodation consisting of renting a room in a shared house or rent the entire flat. This option has become very popular because, allows tourists to experience the city as a local and without paying a fortune. Moreover, its followers think is more friendly than an impersonal hotel room. Reservations are made through the website sometimes you should create a profile though, it is usually a simple and quick process.

Agritourism

agroturismos

Agritourism is widespread in the Basque Country and born with the aim of improving the incomes and economic viability of small farms. Thus, avoid the depopulation in rural communities and at the same time, try to conserve natural heritage. In 1990 was opened the first agritourism in the Basque Country, and results have been very satisfactory for both, farmers and tourists.

The minimum service is bed and breakfast with affordable prices. But, tourist can choose from a wide range of activities that include picking fruits and vegetables, riding horses, tasting honey, learning about wine and cheesemaking or shopping hand-crafted gifts.

A nice project that has improved the living conditions of rural communities and closer the countryside to the urbanites.

There are many good establishments, for further information contact Tourism Offices and Agritourism Association.
