The Rioja Alta is known the world over for its superlative wines and outstanding food scene. It’s also exceedingly picturesque, so it’s difficult to think of a more fitting spot for this fine mansion, which has housed discerning epicureans since the eighteenth century.

We are delighted to be offering for sale this noble eighteenth-century palace, a splendid period home both inside and out with an interior steeped in historical atmosphere.

The property occupies a commanding plot covering a full block in this peaceful village and projects a commanding image with its solid masonry façades, decorative wrought-iron balcony and double coat of arms reminding us of the noble history of this extraordinary period mansion. Atop an arresting hexagonal cupula, we spot the lightwell over the main staircase inside.

Internally, the accommodation is arranged over three floors and an attic, for a total built area of 1,400 m2. Entering from the ground floor we pass through a porte-cochère leading to a three-car garage, private chapel with sacristy and cellar and a living room/music room. From here we can continue directly to the charming 2,000 m2 parterre garden with its decorative hedging, mature trees and one welcome modern addition: a swimming pool.

Back inside, the upper floors are accessed via a sweeping staircase. The first floor contains the main living space, including a living room, library, study, kitchen and laundry room. Also on this floor is the master bedroom and a beautiful gallery overlooking the garden.

The second floor begins with a broad hallway, leading to ten en-suite bedrooms. One more flight of stairs and we are in the attic, a large and versatile space currently being used for storage.

It would be ideal as a boutique gastro-hotel, so if the idea of living like royalty appeals, we highly recommend a viewing to appreciate the sheer splendour of this extraordinary period mansion.
