In the charming village of Villabuena de Álava, surrounded by the Basque mountains and celebrated vineyards of Rioja, the Viura’s stacked cubed form contains cool and bright interiors that amplify the surroundings.
29 rooms are unobtrusively luxurious, with floor to ceiling panoramic windows, some with views over the quant village streets, the neighbouring San Andrés Church and to the Cantabrian mountains on the horizon. Six suites feature a separate living room and private terraces.
Gastronomy takes pride of place here, with an intimate restaurant offering exquisite tasting menus of creative Rioja and Basque cuisine, paired with an extensive wine list by the Viura’s sommelier. Guests can enjoy a wide range of wines from the region and fully immerse themselves in the local viticulture on tours to local vineyards, tasting sessions and tutorage in pairing.
The surrounding area can be explored on borrowed bicycles and the village swimming pool, a great place to relax and mix with the local, is open to guests and sits next to the hotel.
