La Real Casona de las Amas in Rioja, Spain, is offered by Christie’s International Real Estate Affiliate Rimontgó.
Located in the small and quiet town of Azofra, in the heart of Rioja’s wine region in Spain, La Real Casona de las Amas is set in the middle of vineyards and famous wineries, receiving 1,000 bottles of in-house wine.
This 17th-Century rural property has been immaculately restored and is currently used as a boutique hotel but is also suitable as a private residence. Blending a traditional Spanish country feel with modern comfort and luxury, the interiors of the property have been restored with great attention to the original detail and ambience, preserving different decorative elements such as valuable antiques, coats of arms, and inscriptions.
La Real Casona de las Amas, which is over 900 square meters, features 16 independent and individually styled rooms, a restaurant, a bar, a library, and several lounges. Enveloped in greenery, the gardens house a private spa with a hot tub, thermal baths, a shower, and a counter-current swimming pool.
José Ribes Bas from Rimontgó says, “This beautiful property is perfect for all true wine connoisseurs, set in the heart of the most celebrated and popular Spanish wine region. It makes the perfect place to entertain guests, family, and friends alike. This unique property is brimming with charm, offering absolute tranquillity and the enchantment of the vineyards, in a glorious historical location made famous by the Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James) and the World Heritage monasteries nearby.”
Rioja, tucked right under the foothills of the Cantabrian Mountains, is an area brimming with charm. Exceptional quality of grape-growing and ageing wine is what makes Rioja one of the most internationally recognized wine-producing areas of Spain. Several examples of some of the region’s most famous and historic wineries are located near Casona de las Amas, including Marqués de Riscal winery, founded in 1860 and one of the most established in Rioja, as well as the Ysios winery near Laguardia, designed by famous architect Santiago Calatrava.
Giles Hannah, Christie’s International Real Estate Director of Sales for Europe, says, “Casona de las Amas is a rare offering, set in the midst of vineyards. This is an opportunity to own a property with flair and character unique to the Rioja wine region.”
