A well kept secret and jewel of the Rioja region, this modern and family run hotel over five generations has so much to offer. Well located in the ski village of Ezcaray, it is only a twenty minutes drive away from Haro, the Rioja wine capital.
The hotel is located in a small and traditional Riojan village. The design is minimalist with a Nordic style that includes all amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel. Our room had a balcony facing an ancient church with a direct view of the village. True to the Rioja a nice bottle of red was generously gifted to our room.
The has a beautiful terrace where the breakfast is served. The emphasis is on relaxation with a cosy service that is professional and dedicated. The family touch is always present.
The hotel has two restaurants, Echaurren Tradition particularly known for the matriarch Marisa’s croquettes. “El Portal” is a crazy and daring dream that Marisa’son, Francis Paniego created. It received two Michelin stars and is I think the only two stars located in a secluded village. Just an incredible feat!
Conclusion, magnificently tucked in the Rioja region this is a culinary and well deserved stop to enjoy the beauty of the Ezcaray village and the creative cuisine of chef Francis Paniego.
