Truly impressive! A fabulous, family-owned mediaeval castle. Charming Pilar runs it, with her considerable team. She’s passionate about the place – and wine – and speaks good English. It’s simply massive: seven living rooms full of family furniture, paintings and ornament, a magnificent central courtyard, a mysterious library, an upstairs corridor surrounding an indoor patio, once-secret passageways, a tower with wraparound views, and 41 stone-walled bedrooms… You might not even notice a wedding party! With such a choice of rooms do discuss your taste and budget – and maybe splash out on one with champagne and strawberries, a terrace or tower (the least expensive are not so light). All are a clever mix of ancient and modern with king-size beds, minibars and room service; most have showers, fewer have baths. Breakfast in the 15th-century stables; dine on Castilian-inspired dishes. There are vines, a maze, a pine forest, a lagoon, a tended garden and a saltwater swimming pool in the moat. A great area for wildlife and walking, close to the Salamanca to Zamora motorway but perfectly secluded, majestic, memorable.

Frankly quite wonderful. I've stayed in hundreds of hotels and this is the most memorable. I will be back. If you're in the area I highly recommend a couple of nights. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Pilar Fernández de Trocóniz Tapia

  • There are many activities to do at our Inn: the swimming pool, badminton, we make special picnic baskets, or a guided visit to the castle, the vineyard and a wine tasting! During the winter, drinking a glass of wine beside the XV century hearth is a must!
  • The Castle has belonged to my family since 1958 and we opened the Inn in 2003. It is a family-owned business. Our life is dedicated to maintaining the building in perfect condition and to make our guests very happy!
  • We are in the middle of the countryside, in a peaceful area where the sound of birds is the only thing you will hear.
  • We are very close to Salamanca and Zamora, which are two of the most beautiful cities in Castilla. It is a two hour drive form Madrid. There are also little towns you can visit like Toro, Ledesma, Ciudad Rodrigo, La Alberca, Los Arribes...
  • There are many activities to do in the surroundings: visit a winery, a cheese farm, an iberian ham factory... For groups, you can also hire a flamenco dancing performance or a hot air ballon trip.
  • We have all the ingredients to make a unique experience.
