Discover the nooks and crannies of the house
Our house is set up for having a good rest. Every space is equipped with all you need. Our drawing room encourages you to spend long post prandial conversations in front of the fire. You can enjoy playing board games with your friends in the living room, read in peace and forget the world. If you didn’t bring anything to read, you are sure to find something interesting in our library. Watch the birds in our garden while you listen to the birdsong. Eat lamb chops grilled over vine twigs or simply do nothing, a moment of relaxation, a parenthesis, the sweet idleness or “dolce far niente”, daydreaming, resting.
Spacious entrance hallway with walking sticks and hiking gear, bats, rackets and pelota balls, as well as the leaflets with all the tourist information about the surrounding district.
It is a professional-style kitchen, spacious and equipped with stainless steel appliances, gas stove, a large sink with twin basins, fridge freezer and refrigerator, industrial dishwasher, oven, iron, fryer and professional extractor. In addition, it has the following equipment and utensils. Microwave, food mixer, coffee maker, toaster, juice extractor and various grills, paella pans and large saucepans.
A well-tended, tidy, romantic garden, completely secluded thanks to the surrounding stone walls, with four leafy linden trees. You can rest in their shade and breathe in the aromas of rosemary, thyme, lavender, bay, mint and sage. In springtime the flowers fill the space with colour. The trilling of countless species of birds (you can engage in some twitching from the rooms overlooking the courtyard or from the comfort of the armchairs in the lounge), competes with the bells of the omnipresent church tower. It has a paved outdoor dining area, rustic benches, barbecue, wood oven and outdoor games such as toad in the hole, mini-golf and boules…
Library, reading and games room
A room with armchairs, tables and reading lamps, a wide-ranging selection of books: on Riojan topics, travel books, novels, comics, magazines about history, art and nature, and children’s books. A multi-purpose space with an area for playing cards and numerous board games on the shelves.
A deep, historic well, totally protected for viewing, which used to be the house’s water supply.
The typical kind of rural staircase in three sections with landing and rustic ceramic tiles on the steps and old wood. Protected by an open bannister and illuminated from above by a skylight.
Underground wine cellar where the wine for home consumption used to be made. A very useful space for storing, preserving and ageing wine at cellar temperature and humidity and also for conducting tastings and oenological experiences.
