Look no further if you are planning to come to Rioja Wine Region, in North Spain: Casa Josephine is the perfect choice for families or groups of friends. Housing up to 10-12 people, it is a four-story manor house with 3 double rooms, 2 larger rooms (double and triple), 4 bathrooms, 2 spacious meeting/dining rooms and a fully equipped kitchen. You can stay here on a self-catering basis, or B&B.; We can also arrange meals in the house if you prefer. Of course, the house is fully equipped and it has wifi, TV, dishwasher, washing machine, etc.
Casa Josephine is in Sorzano, a small village amidst vineyards in the heart of Rioja Wine Region, near the top wine cellars built by Frank Gehry, Santiago Calatrava and Zaha Hadid. We are 1 hour south of Bilbao (the nearest airport), 1 hour west of Pamplona and less than 2 hours from San Sebastian.
Rioja Wine Region, often described as the "Spanish Tuscany", is a quiet -yet flourishing- region with seven valleys that flow down to the Ebro River valley, a landscape of rolling hills and neverending vineyards. A region dedicated to agriculture, crafts and gastronomy, Rioja is part of the Way of Saint James, the famous trail that pilgrims and hikers follow on their way across Northers Spain. Walled Medieval villages, impressive churches, castles...and of course food and wine. From Michelin-star restaurants to local tavernas, Rioja guarantees a full immersion in amazing gastronomy.
We restored Casa Josephine in 2006. Thanks to its style (low-key, relaxed and comfortable), it has been featured in Elle Deco, Vogue, LivingEtc, Casa&Campo;, etc. It was shortlisted in Condé Nast Traveler as one of the top-10 countryside accommodations in Spain, and recommended in the New York Times as a "stylish lodging" that guarantees the experience of a "full cultural immersion".
Rental of Casa Josephine includes daily cleaning (beds and bathrooms), support staff in the village (on call) that will make sure everything runs smoothly, organization of itineraries in the area, bookings in wine cellars, museum, etc. And upon request: catering / cook, extra maid service, baby-sitting, guided walks, hikes and climbs in the countryside and guided visits to cities, monuments and wineries, and airport / port / train station transfers
In the surroundings of Casa Josephine you will find: Golf course Sojuela Aymerich 1 mile away from the house, considered the fifth best –and most demanding- golf course in Spain. Spa and Hotel Marques de Riscal by Frank Gehry. Ysios Wine cellar by Santiago Calatrava in Laguardia. Haro, heart of wine production area.
