The first thing to know is that La Rioja is delightfully off the beaten track. This means you get a genuine experience of Spain, but it also means accommodation can be limited, and there are certainly no holiday resorts or large capacity hotels. The best places to stay include a stunning array of modern boutique hotels. So our first advice is to decide your travel dates and book your accommodation quite in advance.

Rioja in Style is more than happy to help you with finding places to stay in the region, especially if you are looking for an added value experience. Or if you prefer you can always contact the hotels directly or use hotel booking sites like Booking.com.
