The 12th Century Abbey Turned Vineyard Parador

History and nature meet just 100 miles outside of Madrid, Spain. Abadia Retuerta, a boutique hotel housed in a twelfth-century abbey, feels as if you’re stepping back in time without compromising on contemporary luxury. Sitting on over 1,500 acres of vineyard plots, Abadia Retuerta is the perfect destination for those looking for restoration, history, and culture.

Rooms & Suites

Converted into a luxury hotel in 2012, Abadia Retuerta has thirty rooms, all of which overlook the estate’s vineyards. Each room is supplemented with a patio or deck, where guests can relax outside overlooking the vast and quiet landscape. Furnishings are uniquely thoughtful, from the mosaic tiling in the bathrooms to the goose-feather pillows and comforters. The wifi is quick and free. Each room boasts a complimentary bottle of Abadia Retuerta Selección Especial, as well as a fully stocked mini-fridge. Guests are met with their own individual butler, who can make arrangements for their trips. Everything is tailored for absolute comfort and relaxation.

Restaurants & Lounges

For foodies, one of the hotel’s greatest points of intrigue is its Michelin star restaurant, Refectorio. Also boasting a Green Star and two Repsol Suns, the restaurant foregrounds locally sourced produce and seasonal ingredients. Chef Marc Segarra is inspired by his surroundings and strives to imbue his dishes with creativity. The restaurant is located in a beautiful dining room lined with the original twelfth-century brick. For more casual dining, Vinoteca offers forty wines and an assortment of tapas for guests to share in a light, airy environment. In the summer, guests can dine in the Cloister Garden for breakfast, stepping into another era amid the stunning buildings and gardens. Not to be missed, Calicata Terroir Bar sits on a terrace above the banks of the Douro River. Another of Chef Marc Segarra’s culinary creations, the restaurant and bar sources produce from the local area and its own vegetable garden. Plates here are paired with local wines to highlight the flavors and smells of the surrounding landscape.


Abadia Retuerta offers guests a variety of individualized excursions and experiences. Guests can rent bikes or e-bikes to tour the vineyards, taking picnics with them to indulge in along the way. Horseback riding is also offered. For those hoping to see more of the landscape, hot air balloon tours take off at sunrise. And of course, there is also a variety of winemaking and tasting options.

Spa & Wellness

Recognized in 2016 as the Best New Spa & Wellness Property as well as the Best for Wow Factor at the Wellness Travel Awards, Abadia Retuerta’s spa experience is singular. The indoor pool is located in the property’s basement, where natural light filters in and well water, which has been decalcified and undergone reverse osmosis, fills the room. Abadia Retuerta offers personalized yoga and water yoga classes, as well as various spa treatments, from massages and facials to Tibetan bowl rituals. Perhaps most exciting, a special Spa Sommelier combines wines with aromatherapy in a unique wellness treatment to help promote relaxation.
