An historical site, unique and authentic to discover and understand the Basque Country.

In Basque Country, the house is more than a property, more than architecture: it is a memory and a history… as for Ortillopitz.
The restoration of Ortillopitz, due to a private initiative, shows a successful example of conservation, avoiding the pitfall of a sanctified heritage.

Ortillopitz - East

Traditional Basque house from the 17th century

Authentic Basque house, Ortillopitz built in 1660 on the remains of the house erected in 1540 in the middle of its domain of several hectares.

In this preserved setting, discover the Labourdine architecture of ETXE, its original furniture and the life that was organized around the Basque family unit.

The outdoor area recounts the life in autarky, of the noble house with its plots of vines, apple trees and cultures of yesteryear as well as its traditional breeding of the time.
