Quite literally a big house formed from old local stone and sleek new black wood, Casa Grande in La Rioja is a pilgrimage for holy holidaymakers and adventurous oenophiles alike. The minimalist yet mediaeval manor is next door to the church in the village of Grañón, with the spire and local terracotta roofs on show from the hotel’s hallowed terrace. The masterpiece masonry has been expanded over the years and the interiors are entirely modern, bar the original beam and stone backdrop. And if the spirit of adventure suddenly takes you, the village is a pitstop on the Camino de Santiago, in northern Spain’s most prolific wine-producing wonderland.
