To hear the name Laguardia brings back the times of the “Reconquista”, but from our bedroom window in Eguren Ugarte we can contemplate a millenary peaceful landscape, surrounded by old and new vines. Or the Victorino Eguren dream, founder of the cellar which gives its name to this remarkable hotel, Best of Wines Tourism 2010 in the accommodation category. The Hotel is part of a complex where wine is a religion, a space for sensations in which the fresh air smells of countryside where it has just rained, of gathering of grapes, or open barrel, depending on the time of year. In this sensorial Hotel the sounds accompany the smells, and on our walk around the estate the sound of bees alternates with the crackling of vine shoot as we go along. The rooms are generously sized and are a balcony over the Toloña mountain range and the neighbouring Laguardia. The unique building is built on 2000 square metres of underground labyrinths. Which fulfil what one can expect in the Rioja Alavesa grounds. We are very comfortable in this house which gives all the importance to the meaning of good service.
