Hotel Senorio de Brinas, La Rioja

In the little village of Briñas in La Rioja, you will discover a superb 18th century manor house. Once the home of a local aristocratic family, today this historic building houses the little hotel Señorío de Briñas, a place where you seem to be able to breathe in the history and splendour of past times. The thick stone walls have been witness to many historic events right up to the Spanish Civil War when it was used as a barracks by the Italian brigade.

Pedro Ortega (an antique restorer) and Angela Gómez (the owner) restored the hotel in minute detail, enhancing the massively proportioned wood and stonework with a lighter touch of antique furnishings, ceramics, traditional carpets, frescos and some unusual trompe l'oeil murals by the Polish artist Jull Dziamski. All the guest rooms are light and airy, and each is decorated in its own unique combination of colour and fabrics.

Here in La Rioja, a guest's thoughts soon turn to food and drink, and this is an ideal base from which to sample many excellent restaurants, taste the superb local wines and visit the bodegas, as well as taking in the countryside, seeing all manner of historic places and appreciating all the natural beauties that the area has to offer.

This hotel is well-suited for disabled guests. All the main rooms and four guestrooms are on the ground floor avoiding any stairs or steps, there are handrails in the bathrooms and the doors are wide enough for wheelchairs. A new addition is a small spa, providing a jacuzzi, sauna, relaxing massages and treatments using wine products (well, this is the home of Rioja!).

Excellent Characterful Hotel, Good service. Try la Portal de la Rioja Restaurant nearby. For excellent local food, Fernando the owner is hard to beat.
A super little place in a quiet village location. The room was excellent, bright, spacious and with a very comfortable super kingsize bed and great views to the rear. The staff could not have been more helpful and when we couldn't get a taxi late at night back from Haro after a tour of the tapas bars a member of staff came out and picked us up in her own car. The tour of the Bodega was very interesting and informative with the guide speaking good English. The breakfast in the morning was great with a good choice of meats, cheese, breads and eggs. The request late in the evening for a bottle of their crianza to finish off the evening was absolutely no problem at all.
GREAT.

We Say

The trompe l'oeil murals are unusual, bordering on eccentric, and help to give a light-hearted touch to a traditional country house full of antiques.
