Hotel Ayllón is a boutique design hotel located in the Plaza Mayor (main square) of Ayllón, a medieval village in the province of Segovia, Spain. Set in two renovated village houses, simple and sober but warm and comfortable at the same time. The space itself provides calmness and peacefulness, with shades of color that gives freshness just like the poppies in the surrounding wheat fields bringing an almost Scandinavian aesthetic.
Local craftsmen used regional materials like stone, wood and lime. The intricate layout of the hotel is an experience for the guests with its courtyard and adjoining lounges and restaurant dining rooms. Large wooden windows and balconies, along with white-washed walls and white linen makes the hotel bright and comfortable.
The El Patio restaurant features stone columns and flooring and limestone walls and is comprised of three inter-connected rooms with different areas for different times of the day. The light is always on the move and there is a constant play on perspectives, asymmetries and transparencies, which juxtapose materials, textures and colours. The furniture has been tailor-made using materials such as wood and leather, linen fabrics, wrought iron and ceramics.
Everyday dishes made from simple and tasty recipes, which are grounded in the history and culture of the area. The cuisine is based on traditional seasonal fare that stands out thanks to the high quality of ingredients used. The menu encompasses the very best produce the land has to offer, as well as a carefully chosen selection of wines from the region. In addition to the wide variety of products on the menu, there is also a set menu on offer from Monday to Friday.
None of the spacious 18 rooms (of which 4 junior suites) is the same. These come with views of the courtyard or the old town’s Plaza Mayor from balconies, terraces or attic room windows. Clean lines with wooden floors, midcentury-inspired designer furniture and bathrooms in Carrara marble set the tone. Room facilities include air conditioning, heating, king size beds, hydromassage showers and a personal safe. Junior suites also have a bath tub.
