This last trip I decided to stay just 10 kms away from Segovia at El Rancho de la Aldehuela. It is part of a wider property including shops, restaurante and a lower end hotel, La Posada. Rooms are huge, nicely decorated and some of them include a wide terrace with country views. Prices are more than reasonable and breakfast is incliuded. The restaurant is OK, serving roasted lamb and pig. Just make sure that you get a table in the frst dining room: the rear one is usually full of uncontrolled todlers. Breakfast is powerfull. The lobby floor bar is a nice venue to have a late gin&tonic after dinner.The surrounding areas include a nice village (Sotosalbos) with an excellent romanesque church including a small museum which is worth a visit.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In a beautiful tranquil setting in the heart of the Segovian countryside, famous for its delicious traditional local cuisine, this luxurious 4-star country hotel is ideal for a relaxing break. In the little village of Torrecaballeros, this building was once a barn for shearing sheep. Today the structure has been sensitively and extensively renovated. Reminiscent of Africa and Indochina, the hotel offers authentic Castilian character and beautiful original features including stunning wood-beamed ceilings. The hotel's owner, Javier Gireldez, takes pride in presenting spacious, airy 4-star accommodation, superb cuisine, a fully-equipped spa and an outdoor swimming pool. The large gardens and lush green surroundings offer the perfect environment for a restful, relaxing restorative break. Hotel El Rancho is a great base from which to explore the little towns of Castile, as well as Segovia, a historic capital city featuring a blend of cultures and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. ... more less
