Located in the small village
of Villanasur Río de Oca this building is outstanding and eye-catching.
The present owners have carefully restored it and turned it into a small
hotel with nine rooms. It's original Venetian style balcony was the theme
which inspired a refurbishment based on the most evocative places of the
spice route or Marco Polo's travels. Respecting the stone and wooden structure
its décor uses warm colours such saffron, ginger, vanilla and cinnamon.
Hand painted wall paper or material have been used to decorate the walls
together with more modern elements. In short a subtle combination of textures,
colours and atmospheres that evoke expeditions which are today no longer
possible. Cuisine is classic with subtle modern touches and fusion.

after Toledo, SEGOVIA is the outstanding trip from Madrid. A relatively
small city, strategically sited on a rocky ridge, it is deeply and haughtily
Castilian, with a panoply of squares and mansions from its days of Golden
Age grandeur, when it was a royal resort and a base for the Cortes (parliament).
It was in Segovia - in the unremarkable church of San Miguel, off the Plaza
Mayor - that Isabel la Católica was proclaimed queen. For a city
of its size, there are a stunning number of outstanding architectural monuments.
Most celebrated are the Roman aqueduct , the cathedral and the fairy-tale
Alcázar, but the less obvious attractions - the cluster of ancient
churches and the many mansions found in the lanes of the old town, all
in a warm, honey-coloured stone - are what really make it worth a visit.
Just a few kilometres outside the city and reasonably accessible from Segovia
are two Bourbon palaces, La Granja and Riofrío.
