    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    On the banks of the River Tormes. which runs into Salamanca seven miles away, Hacienda Zorita is a luxury wine hotel and spa steeped in history. Founded in 1366 as a monastery then converted into an innovative flour mill in the 19th century, the original buildings were recently brought back to life as home to the Marques de la Concordia wines. The façade of the La Casa Grande building is reminiscent of an aristocratic English manor house, yet its architecture is firmly of the central region. Interiors retain exposed stonework where possible, particularly in Zorita’s Kitchen, where the dining experience emphasises rugged, home-grown cuisine under the direction of Michelin-starred Chef Victor Gutierrez. Drawing much of its produce from Hacienda Zorita’s very own organic farm, the menu is made up of Mediterranean dishes and hearty regional staples of bread and wine. The atmosphere is sociable, with mismatched seating around large tables for communal dining. Each of the 40 rooms, suites and villas is individually decorated and furnished with the utmost comfort in mind, while views are either of the vineyard or the river. Other on-site facilities include swimming pools and a unique wine spa. The wine-themed experiences of Hacienda Zorita are endless thanks to the age-old vines that have adorned this sprawling riverside plot for over seven centuries. Daytrips from this rural retreat to Salamanca make for magical historical excursions.
