Abadia Retuera LeDomaine
Historic property, Michelin Star Restaurant and full butler service in Ribera del Duero
A vineyard estate surrounding the twelfth century Monastery of Santa María de Retuerta, LeDomaine is a boutique haven to enjoy the finest cultural, wine and culinary offerings on the banks of the Duero River.
No expense was spared in designing the hotel installations and services, from transforming the abbey’s former stables into a spa sanctuary to including a butler service with each room to attend to the guests’ every whim.
The rooms themselves give off a minimalist yet indulgent vibe, our favorites being the ground-level superior rooms with their own private garden terraces.
Although you may be tempted to spend your stay being pampered with wine therapies at the spa, you must dedicate plenty of time to actually imbibing the wine. While La Rioja is the traditionally recognized wine region of Spain, Ribera del Duero produces powerhouse wines often preferred by Spaniards, and the hotel has the best wine list in the region, including their own Abadia Retuerta wines.
To put the cherry on top of this incredibly indulgent stay, dine on inventively-prepared local products at the Michelin-starred Refectorio restaurant, located in the refectory in the monastery, or their charming, and delicious, Vinoteca tapas restaurant.
Don’t leave LeDomaine without: wine, of course! While the region is known for its full-bodied reds, be sure to stock up on their fabulous and lesser-known rosés as well.
