Matarraña is a spot of natural beauty and it is here we found the Consolacion, small designer hotel & hideaway in Teruel, bordering Aragón. This observatory-like pad clasps to the bedrock amidst heady scents of thyme, lavender + almond groves.
The terrain hosts a stark sequence of cubist structures which beautifully marry with the monastic 14th century Ermita – a small intense masterpiece at the heart of this decidedly relaxed, creative enclave.
There is a subtle sweet rawness that caresses the place, with the wooden cubes adopting translucence + solidity, framing the wide vistas beyond – the huge open-ended window of each den reflects those medieval portals of the old church – a connectivity that runs a thread throughout.
There is something to be said for ME time - from your private cube you can dance as naked as a bird, or just sit and gaze a yonder. Rejoin your fellow housemates taking the garden path past the sunken pool + follow your nose to the open kitchen dining or curl up over a bottle in the whimsical library.
A crafted, regional remit of old style luxury, translated for the nomads of today in a deliciously relaxed tone.
The savvy insider coordinates for this bolt hole are dead simple, here's the lowdown: Barcelona (250km) Valencia (200km) nestling closer to Zaragoza (100km) and Castelion (100Km). See you there.
