Palacio Torre de Ruesga
, Barrio la Barcena S/N, Ruesga.
Palacio Torre de Ruesga is located in the stunning Cantabria Alto Asón region, where it has stood since 1610, surrounded by forests and the Collados del Asón natural park. It offers a swimming pool, modern spa facilities with jacuzzi and free sauna, plus free wifi internet throughout the building.
The hotel is elegantly decorated as one would expect of a Spanish stately house, with massive stone walls and lots of antique furniture. The exquisite frescoes that were completed by painter León Criach y Durán in 1886 have been restored and decorate the walls and ceilings of the main salon, the library, and the entertaining room. Today the interior is a contemporary and luxurious take on the splendour of the original furnishings. All rooms have been designed with a meticulous attention to detail that emulates the magnificence with which its original owners surrounded themselves.
The position of the hotel in the Cantabrian mountains is ideal, in easy reach of both the Santander and Bilbao ferries and Bilbao airport. And should you ever tire of the beautiful mountain scenery, the Cantabrian coast is only 25 minutes away by car.
The lovely restaurant has large windows facing out onto the garden. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served here using a maximum of local produce.
