Stay at Marqués de Riscal
Think of a building so unique that you can’t even imagine it. That’s what the Marqués de Riscal is like — it’s entirely different from anything you’ve ever seen. And it’s no wonder. After all, it was designed by Frank Gehry, the world-famous architect who also designed the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the Louis Vuitton foundation in Paris and the Dancing House in Prague. There are no two ways about the design of this hotel. You will either hate it — or love it.
Marqués de Riscal is a countryside hotel, located within the wine estate from which it takes its name. The closest major airports are Bilbao (1h30 away), and San Sebastian (2h). If you are flying a private jet, land at the Logroño Agoncillo Airport — it’s only a 30-minute drive to the hotel.
Some have curvy and slanted lines, while others have a more classic look. Views over the vineyards make for a truly peaceful ambience.
Who is it for
Because of its setting in the vineyards and the wine experiences offered, this hotel is especially suited to adults.
Facilities & activities
Indulge in the discovery of modern cuisine in the hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, and enjoy the contrast with the traditional cuisine you will find in La Rioja’s cozy restaurants and pubs. Take a guided tour of the winery and the historical 19th-century cellars, and do a vinotherapy spa treatment.
