An Epicurean escape to a glamorous five-star wine estate in Spain's 'land of bread and wine' – includes a slow wine tasting, flights, car hire and more
Hacienda Zorita Wine Hotel & Spa sits along the Douro Valley in 'the land of bread and wine', owing to its flourishing farms and world-class vineyards. More than living up to this culinary heritage, the stunning five-star Hacienda Zorita Wine Hotel & Spa boasts tempting culinary menus, and there's an expertly stocked cellar where wine and cheese tasting evenings are held. The hotel was once a monastery with a rich historical past, and its roots are kept alive and thanks to architectural preservation and traditional artwork, which blend seamlessly with more modern refined design touches and fixtures.
The hacienda looks out over the local vineyards and the nearby Tormes River and is just a short distance from the centre of Salamanca – known as 'the Golden City' and one of the finest Renaissance settlements in Europe. During your stay you can enjoy local flavours with ingredients from the hotel's organic farm, as well as indulge in exfoliating and age-defying vinotherapy treatments at the spa. It's no surprise the beautiful Hacienda Zorita garnered a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.

Please note that for the car hire, a local tax of £1 per day is to be paid locally. This is mandatory and payable directly to the car hire company.
Designed in a monastic style with natural materials like wood beams and stone floors and walls, the hacienda's rooms, suites and villas are a study in rustic chic and each is beautifully and individually decorated. The stylish villas boast a view of the river or the hotel's own vineyard from a private terrace. You'll enjoy a bright living area, a sleeping area with double or twin beds, and a bathroom with bathtub or massage shower.
At Zorita's Kitchen, you'll be dining on delicious Spanish and Mediterranean dishes, with ingredients sourced directly from the hotel's own organic farm and cooked with a 'slow food' approach. Meals are served al fresco or in the communal dining room, which is based in the traditional Dominican refectories. Breakfast is served here from 8am to 11.30am. The Wine Bar is also on hand with casual meals and cocktails.
You can ease into blissful tranquillity at The Wine & Olive Spa, located within the complex's oldest building, a former water mill dating back to the eighth century. The spa offers natural treatments that incorporate properties from the local grapes and olives, as well as a relaxing space in which to practice yoga or Qi yoga. On deliciously hot days, cool off in the hotel's bath area.
Salamanca is widely regarded as one of Europe's most beautiful cities and constructed almost entirely in locally mined sandstone, which glows golden as the sun goes down. The Old City was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 1988. Notable highlights of Salamanca are the university – one of the oldest in the world, the old and new cathedrals, and the highly original House of Shells. Salamanca practices a very traditional Spanish way of life and here you'll find a plethora of fantastic restaurants serving the main meal of the day at lunchtime.
