Description: Hospedería de los ParajesLocated in the heart of the walled town of La Guardia, Hospedería de los Parajes is a magnificent new boutique hotel situated in a spectacularly restored and renovated historic palace. One of the most important features of this sympathetic reconstruction is the glass-roofed central courtyard, where the ancient stones of the original building are combined with the modern structure to create a charming, welcoming space, centred on a delightful fireplace.
Just a few steps from the church of Santa María de los Reyes, Hospedería de los Parajes is situated in the capital of La Rioja-Alavesa, and is ideal for exploring this magnificent wine producing region. Surrounded by rolling hills and carefully tended vineyards, the area is perfect for horse riding, mountain biking, hiking and many other outdoor activities. Many of La Rioja's vineyards, aside from their excellent wines, have spectacular modern wineries, including the "Marqués de Riscal", designed by Frank Gehry, "Ysios", by Santiago Calatrava and "Baigorri", a work by Iñaki Aspiazu. Wine tours and tastings can be organised at hotel reception.
Hospedería de los Parajes hosts two fine restaurants, Los Parajes and Las Duelas. Los Parajes is a gourmet restaurant serving modern cuisine in an elegant setting, while Las Duelas is more informal, with the accent on traditional regional dishes. Guests can also enjoy snacks, tapas and fine wines in the ancient cellars of the palace. The basement Spa and Wellness centre features a Turkish bath, an ice fountain, various water treatments as well as a wide range of massages.
