Av. de Calvo Sotelo 28, Villafranca del Bierzo, Castille and León, 24500, Spain

This modern two-story hotel built with local stone looks out over the Bierzo valley. Its rooms have heavy wood furniture, windows with shutters, and large baths. At the restaurant you can dine on shavings of cecina (cured beef), fresh Bierzo trout, and a range of other local delicacies. Try the local wine, made primarily from the floral mencía grape.
