A tranquil stay in the picturesque Spanish countryside, just 20 minutes outside the historic city of Salamanca
Hacienda Zorita Wine Hotel & Spa sits along the Tormes River, in western Spain's "Land of Bread and Wine," a name that refers to the flourishing farms and world-class vineyards of this breathtaking region. The estate is also just a 20-minute drive from the heart of Salamanca, known as the "Golden City" and one of the finest Renaissance towns in Europe. So whether you're taking day trips around the region, strolling along the banks of the river or simply kicking back on a sun lounger with a good book or a tasty cocktail, the laid-back vibes and gorgeous scenery of this inviting destination are sure to help you relax and recharge.
As a luxurious country estate, the property itself has quite a bit to offer, as well. More than living up to the region's culinary heritage, the exquisite restaurant offers a menu of regional specialties featuring ingredients grown on site. You'll also have a chance to experience the real highlight of this TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner – its impressive wine cellar, where tastings show off the estate's finest vintages. In fact, the wine culture here extends beyond just dining – visit the hotel's luxurious spa and treat yourself to an exfoliating and age-defying vinotherapy treatment. Bathing yourself in wine? Now that's luxury.
Standard rooms here are beautifully decorated in a laid-back, traditional style. Tiled floors and artisan wood furnishings add to the Mediterranean vibe, and you'll have 260 square feet of space to stretch out in.
You'll be dining on delicious Spanish and Mediterranean dishes, with ingredients sourced directly from the hotel's own organic farm. Meals are served al fresco or in the communal dining room, which is styled after the traditional Dominican refectories. Elsewhere, Wine & Dine bar serves casual meals and cocktails.
You can ease into a blissful Spanish siesta at the hotel's own Wine Spa, which offers natural vinotherapy – spa relaxation with the help of the local grapes – as well as soothing massage treatments. The spa also features a lovely bath area that's perfect for cooling off on balmy days.
Salamanca is widely regarded as one of Europe's most beautiful cities and was constructed almost entirely in locally mined sandstone, which gives off a golden glow as the sun goes down. The Old City was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 1988, and notable highlights include the old and new cathedrals, the highly original House of Shells and the university – one of the oldest in the world.
