Parador de Villafranca del Bierzo - Traditional Galician-style Hotel (4*)
The Parador de Villafranca del Bierzo is built in a traditional Galician style, with a grey slate roof and walls combining stonework and whitewashed plaster. The hotel is located at the entrance to the city of Villalfranca in a beautiful setting, with the Sierra Ancares mountains rising beyond the gardens.
The ambience is enhanced by the use of traditional Castilian wooden furniture, wooden flooring and wrought-iron lamps throughout the Parador and an attractive garden adorns the entrance to the Parador. The 51 guestrooms offer the best views of the north-eastern El Bierzo region, Piedrahita del Cebreiro Pass and southern Ancares mountains.
Villafranca’s Parador features multi-function rooms (which open on to the patio), a sauna, indoor and outdoor (seaonal) swimming pools, as well as a larger car park, which can accommodate around 40 vehicles. The Parador serves as a great example of a sustainable hotel, designed using advanced concepts in energy consumption and has set a new standard for tourism and gastronomy in the El Bierzo region.
Walking, mountain biking, paragliding, fishing, swimming and canoeing are all possible locally, and back at the hotel you can relax in an elegant yet comfortable and informal atmosphere. There is garage parking at this Parador.
