When you travel, there is no way to find a beautiful and careful space where you feel at home. And that is what the New York Times thought when describing the Hotel Abadía Retuerta LeDomaine As one of the ten European hotels where you can feel at home.
And the truth is that it is not for less. Your privileged situation in a former abbey of 1146 in the town of Sardón de Duero, in Valladolid, and its careful decoration, make this hotel the perfect place to be the destination of our next getaway.
The abbey in which this five-star hotel is located is called Santa María de Retuerta, and was built by the order of the Premonstratensians in the distant twelfth century. Declared of Cultural Interest by the Spanish government, among its walls we can see Romanesque and Baroque areas, areas preserved by the recent reform of this monastic complex that earned him the Europa Nostra prize after the opening of the hotel in 2012.
Such has been the quality of the rehabilitation and adaptation works, which the hotel manages to transport to guests staying in one of the 27 double rooms or 3 suites available to the medieval past, without giving up the comfort and sophistication that can be seen in its facilities.
Precisely, to compensate for the sobriety and character of the walls of the old abbey, it has been installed modern furniture to bring the touch of comfort and design to the different spaces, giving special importance to the lighting to compensate for the scarce natural light of some areas with a festive artificial lighting.
Among the hotel services, in addition to a fantastic spa, the Refectory Urantine. A restaurant that is located, as its name indicates, in the refectory of the old abbey and whose chef is in front Pablo Montero.
An internationally renowned chef who has achieved the first Michelin Star for this restaurant thanks to combining creativity with tradition and the use of local ingredients. In addition, next to the Refectory, this hotel has other dining spaces that should not be missed, the Vinoteca, and the Cloister Garden, the terrace that the hotel has in the old cloister of the abbey.
