When we decided to visit the Rivera Sacra I knew it would be difficult to navigate without help from someone who not only spoke English but was on the same page culturally. Our visit to Casa Santa Estevo did not just fit the bill. My expectations were greatly exceeded. Ian and Irene worked tirelessly during our stay to ensure that we had the best stay possible. I won't repeat the comments made by other guests, just concur that we found our room exceedingly comfortable and clean and slept best at this place. Most of the other places we stayed at in Spain were very noisy whether it was noise from other rooms, dogs barking, roosters crowing, church bells ringing or traffic. Here we heard the sounds of silence at night! We were lucky and usually even had WiFi access in our rooms. It was a treat to have breakfast when we woke up rather than having to reserve a specific time. Unlike some of the other places we stayed at, the WIFI here worked the entire week we were here. As I was roaming, I also had incredibly good cellular reception here. Ian and Irene arranged visits to some of the smaller wineries for us and Irene translated into English for my husband. Before we arrived, Irene asked us if we wanted dinner included. Realizing that the dinner hour was 9:30pm and we were in the country we agreed as the price was reasonable. With a little nervousness as I don't eat meat and probably am a bit of a picky eater. We had no idea of the treat we were in store for. The experience was similar to being invited to a dinner party each night. The food was absolutely the best in home cooking. Irene made sure there was a vegetarian or seafood entrée for me each night and I enjoyed everything placed in front of me. The price included three courses, bread, water, and wine. We met so many interesting people. I would return just for the dinner parties! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
