El Mesón, taking care of its guests since 1998

The rural house El Mesón began its activity in the year 1998with the thought; that in Briones there is nothing to accommodate travellers arriving in the village.

With that in mind, and in the spirit of to make Briones knownThe effort, and a lot of hard work, to carry out the idea of the Rural House.

The works The demolition of the roof, stables and hayloft began in December 1999. Leaving the house ready for the beginning of the reconstruction, which starts on 9 January 2000 and last for 8 months.

Finally, on 24 August this year 2000 we open the doors of El Mesónhosting the first guest.

So the years have gone by and various refurbishments of the house which originally consisted of 7 rooms, with the living/dining room located on the first floor.

However, in order to minimise the inconvenience to customers who have a little more rest than others, we have been working in the year 2005 the first refurbishmentThe new living room has been replaced by a living room, a new bedroom and stairs leading to the new living room on the ground floor.

What is now the garden, which once had a small vineyard, was also remodelled so that guests could see the vines, the grapes and of course eat them. Today the garden has different kinds of trees, Olive trees, Pomegranate trees, Pine trees, Elm trees..., an important part of grassand of course, one strain of each variety of DOC Rioja.

Since from the beginning, many families and friends have asked us to rent the entire house, in the 2012 we removed part of the garden and vineyard and incorporated a new building that today we call "El Rincón" (The Corner).

The garden serves as a union of the two buildingsThe house's bedroom and the corner with the kitchen and dining room.

It has heating by biomass.


A rural house in Briones with a lot of history
