Château d'Urtubie

Belonging to the same family since it was built in 1341, this castle fortress was extended in the 16th and 18th centuries and is today a welcoming and sophisticatedly furnished and decorated listed building.

The stones of Urtubie have been witness to over six centuries of history in the Basque Country.

King Louis XI stayed there in 1463 and Louis XIV turned the estate into a viscounty in 1654.

In the 19th century, Soult then Wellington passed through during the Napoleonic wars.

You will find there 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th century period furniture, 16th century Brussels, 17th century Aubusson and 18th century Beauvais tapestries.

Outside you can walk in the castle's park and English gardens, without forgetting to visit the chapel, 19th century bathroom and 18th century orangery.

Its location just 4 kilometres from Saint-Jean-de-Luz and 7 kilometres from Spain makes it a privileged place whose charm and historic wealth are an invitation to visit or stay.
