About us

Markullu, a dream come true

Make yourself at home

Personalized treatment and closeness

Back in 2008, we started this activity with a fully rented rural house for 8+2 people, which gave us great satisfaction. This rewarding experience, the suggestions of our guests, and the demand have led us to expand the offer, turning this dream into reality.

Meet those of us who make up the Markullu family:

Maxux Goñi

Maxux Goñi

Maxux Goñi

Extroverted, creative and brave.

She is dedicated to making others happy, making the stay of her guests easier. As she is passionate about her work, she is usually at home, living close to the apartments, and if she has gone out for walks in the mountains, or on a getaway to surrounding cities and towns, she will assist you by phone.

Baztandarra on all four sides and proud of it. A great lover of the valley, Maxux will want to show you everything about this environment; She lives in the center of the Baztan valley, at the foot of Mount Bagordi, above the towns of Elizondo and Elbete. From there, she will guide you, tell you what excursions to take, who to visit, give you alternatives to see quieter txokos in times of high influx of visitors, and show you how to enjoy the art of good Basque eating.

Maxux will provide you with the cultural agenda so that you can also get closer and get to know our culture, and she will teach you a few words in Basque, the language we speak in the valley.
And it will also help you make your stay in Markulluko Borda as sustainable as possible, giving you some simple guidelines to preserve Baztan in a cultural, social, economic and environmental way.

Baztan is that and much more, welcome to Markulluko Borda.


Very similar to Maxux, and between the two of them they make a great team. Irune is from Gipuzkoa by birth, but has been a Baztandarra since 2015, and she will show you the Baztan that she has been discovering, because the point of view of someone who comes from outside and settles in the valley is very important. She will tell you everything that has fascinated her and what has “shocked” her about the valley.

Very attentive and kind, she will show you Baztan seen through the eyes of a new neighbor. One of the things that has caught his attention the most about the baztandarras is their character, initially closed, but capable of opening at a moment’s notice to share moments of their daily life with visitors. Trying to chat with any Baztanese while you walk through the valley is the main advice that Irune gives you.
Another aspect of Baztan that fascinates him is the love that the residents of the valley feel towards their houses and their towns. Maintaining respect for local architecture, preserving the use of red stone and noble materials.

And the fury of the greenery in spring, and the variety of colors in autumn, is something that she has lived and felt since she arrived.
