From the outside, this hotel might make you feel a little off-kilter. Conventional this property is not, with its tip-tilted cubed architecture. Even better is the juxtaposition of its setting, next to a sixteenth-century church in a traditional Spanish village. Dramatic guest rooms have a modernist look without feeling too cold. Best of all, each comes with a small wine selection chosen by the house sommelier. The sommelier also makes his presence known in the restaurant, where a menu of Riojan and Basque specialties includes partridge, Iberian ham and orchard vegetables. For recreation, guests can explore area wineries, imbibe at the local bodegas or simply stroll next door to the Basque pelota court and learn about (or even participate in) this traditional sport.
