The story of the Hotel Santa María Briones contains many hidden depths. 

There you’ll discover a tale of reconnection, a reunion, a homecoming. A Riojan family that returned to its origins. A region that revolves around a unique culture, cuisine, history, and wine that all come together to make up a home.

But you’ll also find in it the story of a labor of love: love for a place. A project that included a process of rehabilitation and attention to detail, every space cultivated with care and affection.
The villa’s defensive wall was organically incorporated into the hotel’s architecture, creating a confluence of volume and light that’s extremely inviting. Added to that were other quality materials like wood and stone meant to foster a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

It all began with a private mansion from the 16th century, noted for its great historical value: a site to be treated with the respect its history demands.

The work done by Ignacio Quemada Architects and the interior design studio Isabel Lopez Vilalta + Asociados was a key part of this process.

Thanks to the efforts of all the professionals who collaborated with us in this process, today Santa María Briones stands as a representation of a land and a culture that revolves around wine, a rich culinary tradition, and its people… It’s a haven for all those who want to bask in Riojan culture, for all those who wish to discover themselves anew.

An authentic undertaking that pays homage to everything a place like La Rioja has to offer.
