The Experience

Its exterior unmissable on the sleepy village square, this splendid old house has been fastidiously renovated with no loss of original architectural charm. The bright façade, vivid against cloudless La Rioja skies, nevertheless fails to prepare you for the formal elegance inside, testament to Rosario’s impeccable taste. Note the sitting room off the hall with huge, ornate mantelpiece and open fireplace, deep bright sofas and delicate ‘hydraulic’ tiles; the cosy restaurant with turquoise covered chairs; the chic, tile-floored breakfast area overlooking the garden. Bedrooms, spacious and bright, express classic sophistication with posh linen, plush fabrics, freestanding mirrors and furniture procured at specialist auctions. Quirky touches – beautiful pre-Columbian paintings and headboard designs painted on walls – add character, while uplighting, coir matting and richly hued rugs add warmth. This is bang on the Camino de Santiago, so pilgrims on foot, bike and horseback are a common sight in the village; they often take a breather in the shade by the church opposite. And Rosario loves English guests!

If only we had booked for more than one night, but we were en route for home. The village square is picturesque with the hotel opposite the church and water pump. Frequent pilgrims rest in the shade and stop to fill their water bottles. Our hostess gave us so many ideas of where to visit and where to enjoy an evening meal. Over breakfast we discussed our plans for the day, looked at her detailed her maps and we set off, sorry not to have explored the village more.

Maria Rosario made every effort to help us plan a couple of really interesting and child friendly days in this region. She was also an excellent cook and even managed to cater for our very fussy four year old. Her local knowledge was indispensable in making our visit a success. Junior suite was perfect got our family of four with 2 young children. Really comfortable beds and the hydrotherapy bath is just what you need after a day's driving.

Sarah, Hurstpierpoint

Rosario is a lovely person without whom we would not have enjoyed our stay as much as we did because she points out various places to visit that would never have occurred to us. When you arrive in this tiny place you can first have a sense of what will we do here but the minute you walk through Rosario's door everything is sorted - this small hotel is spotless and reflects the passion and care of its owner -will stay here again

Tom, Dublin

We really ejoyedmourmstaymwithnthemdelightful and very helpful English speaking Rosario. The hotel is charming and in a sleepy village right on the Caminpo de Santiago with lots of places to visit. The breakfast and dinner were delicious and we can't wait to go again. We were able to,do a few days walking the Camino following her advice,

June, Shaftesbury

Delightful small hotel furnished with most tasteful modern and antique items, very comfortable bedrooms, good food and above all very friendly hospitality from Rosario. Quiet and restful place to stay in a pretty but tiny village only animated by the passage of pilgrims on their way to Santiago.

Alastair, Langport

Rosario was the most charming and informative hostess. Her English is absolutely perfect as she was educated in England, and she is great company to be with. The house is beautiful and very nicely finished. Breakfast was delicious!

Caroline, Shepton mallet

Wonderful small hotel, highly recommended. Rosario's rooms are sumptuous and so comfortable and her delicious meals need only time to appreciate their quality. The location on the Camino adds a spiritual dimension and Rosario's wide range of interests mean that she can help you see the best of the region. She was very kind when we had a medical problem. We'd love to go back, it's a stunning area not only for the wine, for the landscape, light, art and the food!
