In 1993, leaving Madrid and 20 years in publishing behind us, we scoured the country to find our dream retreat to convert into a beautiful country hotel. We found La Torre del Visco (the name means mistletoe in the local dialect), a semi-ruined XVth estate house on a hillside overlooking its extensive farmlands and forests. It has taken us many years to complete the restoration of the house and to create the gardens.
Today the hotel and restaurant provides us with endless scope for our real interests: Spain, food, wine, gardening, flora and fauna and, above all hospitality. Our business has grown by word of mouth and the majority of our guests, largely Spanish, have become regulars.
The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly
We are bi-lingual and are very actively involved in the daily running of the hotel. If you would like some help in planning your holiday in Spain, just let us know.
