Guardia is a perfect base to explore Rioja's Alavesa wine region. It is a beautiful hill town with good local feel. Once you have decided to stay in Guardia do stay at Erletxe. The location is great: Quite part of the townwith only a 2 min walk to all the bars and restaurants. The house is built into the town... More

Erlexte is a little gem of hotel, built into the town walls. The rooms are really well finished and clean and Unai was a very friendly and helpful host, even letting us park our motorbikes inside his patio! We arrived in the middle of the towns main fiesta of St Juan and St Pedro which was a bonus, but we... More

We stayed at Erletxe for 5 nights in June and wanted to spend the rest of our vacation here. Maria, the owner and her nephew Unai made us feel so comfortable and helped us truly 'see' this part of Spain with their extensive knowledge of the area. The staff also includes the wonderful Jonathan and the talented Jenina. Our room,... More

The perfect base for exploring beautiful La Rioja, this hidden gem is the perfect introduction to this historic region, built within the city walls of Laguardia. Unai was the perfect host, with helpful recommendations for places to try, and his amazing home-cooked breakfasts, which set us up for a day of exploration. It really felt like a home from home,...

This is a gem: clean, comfortable, and full of local charm. We didn't realize that it was built into the city walls but it is, so amazing views and access. Unai was our generous host and made excellent suggestions. Would recommend this spot without hesitation.

Laguardia is a very enjoyable hilltop, walled village in the Alavesa of the Rioja. It's a short bus ride from Logroño and puts you right in the heart of wine country. Erletxe ("house of bees" in Basque) is a bed and breakfast inside the village, but on the wall and looking out. The rooms range from interior looking rooms to... More

It's a bed and breakfast operation but so, so friendly and great value for money. Whatever you want to do they will try to organise for you. Both Unia and Maria are so lovely, it's a pleasure to stay here.
