Far away from the hustle and bustle of the world, you can enjoy at La Torre del Visco the glorious scenery of a valley untouched by man and the modern world. The estate house with its tower dating from 1449 is surrounded by its own eighty-nine hectare farm, romantic gardens full of roses and olive trees bordered by the river Tastavins and the mountain range known as “Ports de Beseit”. The owner grows her own organic fruit and vegetables and makes her own olive oil for the restaurant. Inside the beautiful labyrinthine buildings, immerse yourself in a novel by the fireside, play chess or piano. During the night you can observe the stars on the terrace.
For those seeking total tranquillity without compromising simple luxury, La Torre del Visco is a unique find. This beautifully restored medieval estate is set within a pristine Mediterranean mountain landscape, with clear rivers, wild flowers, organic olive and almond groves as well as organic seasonal produce that supplies the award-winning farm-to-table restaurant.
Guests can wander the estate, often not meeting another person, or find a private corner in one of the fragrant gardens, to read a book from the extensive library with a glass of superb local wine from our open cellar. For the active the option of walking, riding or biking are almost endless.
La Torre del Visco has implemented numerous initiatives designed to create local jobs, minimize its environmental impact and promote sustainable agriculture.
The hotel’s hiring policy met its objective of hiring at least 80% of its staff from among Matarranya’s inhabitants. Of the property’s twenty employees, seventeen are local residents. To expand hotel skills in the region, La Torre del Visco supports the local high school by offering apprenticeships, free cooking lessons with Michelin-starred chefs and technical demonstrations in the classroom. The hotel is also surrounded by its own 90-hectare farm that produces organic fruit, vegetables and olive oil for exclusive use in the hotel’s fine dining restaurant. Finally, an environmental management program improves the hotel's practices by reducing water and electricity consumption, promoting recycling and preventing waste.
