The magnificent vineyards of the Abadia Retuerta estate extend along the banks of the River Duero to the east of Valladolid. A superb- elegantly restored- 12th century abbey- set in a stunning landscape- has opened its doors to visitors. This cultural treasure of Spain- the living embodiment of the soul of this region- has been converted into a hotel with all due respect paid to its 1000 years of history. Every architectural detail has been immaculately preserved in the quest to restore it to all its former glory. The monks cells are now guestrooms- the chapter house is the lounge bar- and the refectory is now a sumptuous restaurant dining room under a vaulted ceiling in the purest of Gothic styles. In these immaculately preserved surroundings- the quality of the service and amenities simply adds to the unique character of this splendid estate.
