The bucolic, one-time summer home of Spain’s first Prime Minister, Adolfo Suárez, is now Ávila's only 5-star hotel, and the only one inside the medieval walls with a pool. Day or night, these ancient city walls are an unforgettable sight.
Built as a retreat from the world, the summer home of Spain’s first Prime Minister Adolfo Suárez has nevertheless witnessed plenty of history. Here the mechanics of the Spanish Transition were devised by Spaniards seeking democracy. Lovingly restored as a five-star escape, it still feels very much like a classic country house, with a terrific restaurant to boot.
Nestled against Ávila´s medieval walls, surrounded by gorgeous gardens, the President’s House is a place to relax and reconnect. Wake up in a large fluffy bed, take a dip in the pool, tuck into homemade dishes of local produce popping with flavor, then read or play chess in the warm afternoon sun.
Ancient Ávila, perched on the rolling hills between Salamanca and Madrid, is famous for its medieval walls, marked by nine gates, and many watch towers. During the day, admire the formidable structure from Los Cuatro Postes, the Four Posts, the spot where St. Theresa was stopped from joining her brother to fight off the Moors. You’ll be rewarded with unforgettable views. Once the sun sets, the walls present an entirely different and bewitching side. The Cathedral of Ávila and Real Monasterio de San Tomas highlight more of the city's historic past with imposing Gothic architecture. After your trip back in time, partake in another Abulense tradition, chuletón de Ávila, a local steak grilled to rare perfection.
