Maison Ortillopitz

Interesting
This fine farmhouse in the Labourd region, built in the 17C by a shipowner, offers an insight into the daily life of a Basque family. Note the comfortable interior, the straight staircase (as it is on board ship), the kitchen and its bread oven, the fine timberwork in the loft (requiring the wood from 600 trees). Outside, you can explore the vegetable garden, the orchard, the vineyard, the hemp and capsicum plots... and the winepress with its impressive main beam and the wash-house.
