Villa Bitterlin is spacious, welcoming, and unique, awakening the mind to the curiosities of organic architecture, provocative and peaceful.      

A monument of architecture that is artful and enchanting, a conversation of the eclectic with a timeless sense of the elegant and the sublime, Jean-Loup Bitterlin designed his personal home on the oceanic banks of Ensenada in Mexico as a declaration to the illimitable possibilities that lie within the organic and the animate, a thread that flows from the man-made to the boundless beauty of nature with majestic curves in stone and generous, rounded windows that grant views of the waves that lap along the beach, resplendent and serene. With mystical finesse and sophisticated aplomb, one can spend the night in this remarkable ode to architecture and embrace the splendid details that make this abode distinctive and impressive, while absorbing the natural wonders on which this habitation dwells, fascinating and transcendent.

Built in 1970 as a testament to the exalted reach of organic architecture, Villa Bitterlin emerged from the dreams of its award-winning architect, Jean-Loup Bitterlin, and boasts high wooden ceilings, a sweeping staircase wrapped in stone, and skylights that bridge the connection between the intimacy of the interior with the splendor of the outdoors, crafting a welcoming character among the picturesque oceanfront. With 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and enough room to host up to 6 guests, a stay at the Villa Bitterlin inspires  a heavenly respite in a piece of history designed by one of the most notable modern masters of organic architecture, with a chance to converse among vintage furniture in the company of an inviting fireplace nook or escape to tranquility in the presence of shimmering mosaic tiles in ocean tones while attending to self-care in the bathroom. From a landing at the top of the stairs, one can absorb the flowing forms and nature-inspired details of this unique architecture from above, with hypnotic views of the ocean presenting an enthralling backdrop to the curved archways and rounded corners of the home, wonderous and distinguished.

Inspired by the extraordinary and at times unusual work of Gaudi, as well as various castles Bitterlin encountered on his travels through Europe, Villa Bitterlin is spacious, welcoming, and unique, an opportunity to partake in the marvels of oceanfront living while learning of curiosities the nestled in organic architecture, one that elucidates the wonders of the natural world through structures, material, and color that enlivens the senses and awakens the mind while ushering a sense of tranquility, provocative, peaceful, and private.
