Set in Spain’s small village of Santo Tomé del Puerto, this adults-only suite complex is perfect for those wanting to spend every waking hour gazing at the lush countryside and breathtaking mountains that characterize the Segovia region. This scenic location is just an hour’s drive from the UNESCO-listed city of Segovia, home to Alcázar of Segovia, the 1,000-year-old palace that supposedly inspired Walt Disney’s Cinderella Castle.
Formerly a 19th-century bakery that’s since been renovated by the fifth generation of bakers, who wanted to pay homage to its roots, Artesa Suites & Spa sets you up with a home-away-from-home stay. Each of the six suites (Cream, Forest, Honey, Milk, Cereal and Chocolate) takes its design inspiration from a different ingredient and offers plenty of living space. There’s also a fully equipped kitchen, with all the cookware you could need.
Elsewhere, you’ll find a glittering spa, complete out with an indoor thermal pool, therapeutic showers, a Finnish sauna, a Turkish bath and a relaxation area. Equally impressive are the unusual pampering rituals, from traditional treatments using organic fruits, sugar, natural oils and chocolate to non-invasive therapies such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and radiofrequency facials.
Good to know
Please note that this is an adults-only property.
How to Get There
My wife and I were driving from San Sebastián to Madrid but didn’t want to spend all of our remaining 3 nights in Madrid. We were looking for spa treatments in Madrid and the average was around €115 per hour in the Madrid city limits. We found Artesa Apartments & Spa on Priceline and got a great deal for staying the night in their suite for €115 for the night. We then both received 1 hour massages for €55 each. So we ended up doing a massage both at night and in the morning for the price we would have paid for just 1 hour each in Madrid. It was a great experience. It felt like a spa retreat. They served breakfast to us at our door. There is only 2 restaurants in town so be aware you are going there to be pampered for the spa. Amazing staff. Great massages!! It’s also a place for skiers in the winter.
Small 6 apartment block with each room being on a rural theme including honey, milk, cereals, wild flowers. Comfortable and quiet. Friendly staff. Spa facilities a bonus. Limited eating within village, but excellent value for money. Wonderful bakery across road. Easy reach of a number of National Parks and historic towns. Only an hour from Madrid airport, and within a mile of the main Madrid - Burgos motorway.
Everything about this place is great - clean, comfy and staff are very friendly and helpful. The only reason why I give it 4/5 is because the first night we stayed there, hotel staff were in the apartment next door to us and were very loud, keeping us up till after 12:30.
The breakfast isn't worth buying, I'd just go to the bakery next door and save yourself $$.
Also, the kitchenette isn't well stocked so don't expect to be making any sophisticated dinners!
