Marqués de Riscal
Experience a sensational, master architect-designed hotel with a Michelin-starred restaurant, set in the picturesque foothills of Spanish wine country.
Designed by Frank Gehry (dubbed "the most important architect of our age" by Vanity Fair) Marqués de Riscal is a jaw-dropping retreat, at which no attention to luxurious detail has been spared.
You'll notice the spectacular titanium exterior first; a vision made all the more arresting due to the hotel's tranquil location amongst the vineyards of Elciego, in La Rioja's Álava province.
Inside, each room feels like a glorious work of art, from the curved wooden walls and gleaming marble bathrooms, to the zig-zag window seats that frame those rolling valley views to perfection.
Throw in an award-winning spa, a gourmet restaurant with one Michelin star, sun-drenched terraces, and tours of the vast, mesmerising Vivanco - Europe's largest wine museum - and that's holiday heaven, right there.
