Why go?Hacienda Zorita is a small wine hotel and spa on the estate of a former Dominican friary, 230km northwest of Madrid. Set beside the River Tormes, it has its own organic farm close by and is a place to wind down and embrace the values of the global ‘slow food’ movement (slowfood.com).

When?Anytime, although summers tend to be scorching. Fortunately, the rain in this part of Spain really does stay mainly on the plain, with only around eight days of rainfall during the soggiest month of May. Spring and autumn offer the best culinary experiences, with freshly foraged food such as cherries from nearby Sierra de Francia and tomatoes from Peromingo appearing in the Hacienda’s restaurant.

You really must…Take your cue from the hotel and relax. Yes, by all means head to Ledesma (20 minutes away), stopping to take in the extraordinary Roman bridge, and to Salamanca (just 15 minutes – the hotel can arrange tours to both), to see its extraordinary cathedral and university buildings. You’ll get the best out of a stay at Hacienda Zorita, though, if you treat it as a microcosmic village. This means de-stressing with a Qi yoga lesson in the courtyard after breakfast, perusing the chapel that is home to extraordinary medieval art, taking a tour of the spectacular vineyards, and enjoying a pre-dinner aperitif on the banks of the river at sunset. Tough, eh? In summer there’s also a small pool in the gardens.

Stay at:Dating back to the 14th century, Hacienda Zorita (doubles from £162 with breakfast; the-haciendas.com) sits in the Duero Valley surrounded by vineyards and organic farms. Rooms are traditional and rustic with blankets embroidered with ‘Z’s and cocoa-coloured tiled bathrooms in keeping with the brown beams and wooden furniture. There are only 40, all at ground level, so it feels like being part of a little village, a sense heightened when you sit in one of the sunny courtyards dotted around and gaze at the rows of vines or River Tormes.
