We were travelling up from the Costa Blanca in Spain to catch the ferry to Portsmouth from Bilbao, due to the timing of the ferry we thought it prudent to stop overnight beforehand to ensure we were there on time, I researched the route and Elciego came up.

This is a lovely Spanish town with a very pretty main square and a stunning church. Nearby there is a walk up a hil to a viewing platform looking over the area. You are in the heart of the Rioja wine growing region with many bodegas available to visit.

One of the most notable sights here is the Marques de Riscal hotel which was designed by Frank Gehry. There are probably alot more but we only had one night.

We stayed at Agroturismo Valdelana, although on quite a busy junction there is plenty of free parking, the hotel itself is charming, we entered through the bodega shop and were greeted by very friendly staff. When i booked the hotel we got a message from them to say included with our stay was a visit to their museum. This is a fascinating place all under the hotel itself and then included at the end was a wine tasting which we did not expect. We felt under no pressure to buy any wine ( but we did !). The accommodation is superb lovely room with a balcony and en suite. There is also a social room which includes a fully equipped kitchen and dining area/ seating area with TV. Breakfast in the morning was lovely again served by very friendly staff. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.
