I had never heard of Olmedo, Spain. Located northwest of Madrid, this tiny town between Segovia and Valladolid was never even on my radar. But when I was invited to tour Quesaría Cantagrullas, I was forced to examine this small part of the Spanish map in order to find lodging for the night. I was hoping for a decent hostel or guest house at best, so I was shocked when I saw that Olmedo was actually home to a luxurious sounding hotel and spa: Hotel Balneario Villa de Olmedo.
I contacted the hotel on its facebook page, hoping that they would have a last minute weekend discount. We ended up with a great deal for our spacious room, access to the thermal baths, and full breakfast buffet.
Our Room at Villa de Olmedo
The breakfast buffet was delicious and I was too busy enjoying it to take any pictures. There was fresh fruit, Serrano ham, local cheeses, yogurts, various types of bread, jams, pastries, and cookies…
A Great Place to Relax
Whether you live in Madrid and need a weekend escape, or you are traveling throughout all of Spain, I would definitely recommend Villa Olmedo for a night or two of relaxation. It is conveniently located on the way from Madrid to Valladolid, near various castles, wineries, and local farms.
