Short Break – Yecla Like You’ve Never Done It Before!

I’m delighted to announce a fantastic Short Break for those who love fine wine, excellent cuisine and boutique hotel luxury . . . . .


I’m delighted to announce a fantastic Short Break for those who love fine wine, excellent cuisine and boutique hotel luxury! Weds. May 3rd – Fri. 5th May 2017 I will be taking a small group, 20 maximum, to the brand new luxury boutique hotel Casa Boquera, Yecla, where the resident chef is Michelin Starred and the ambiance is that of a Country House – in a vineyard!

Dinner Bed and Breakfast will be Hotel Casa Boquera. There is a private garden with swimming pool and beautiful views across the surrounding vineyards. Time to enjoy the rooms, garden and surroundings is built into the programme.

We will tour, taste and lunch at: Bodegas Casa Boquera; Bodegas Barahonda; Bodegas Castaño. Plus we will tour and taste at Bodegas La Purísima – the four leading wineries of this, one of the best and most pro-active DOs in Spain.

My friends at all of these bodegas, and indeed the hotel, have kindly offered my group generous discounts – thus we will all benefit from unique prices that will not be repeated!

The basic price of this Short Break is 395€.

Casa Boquera has three different categories of room, though all are luxurious. The differences are essentially the size of the room and terrace, and the view (except for the one Gran Suite room, please see below). The price above includes the Reserva Category, of which there are 4 rooms only.

The Gran Reserva Category has 5 rooms available, for this room there will be a supplementary cost per person of 30€.

There is also one only Grand Suite available which boasts: the top, private floor; a suite; and a jacuzzi! For this rather spectacular room there is a supplement of 55€ per person.

Needless to say we will also have ample time to buy wines to bring home with us at each of the bodegas visited – I’m sure I’ll also be able to arrange a discount or two on these wines, which will be as inexpensive as you can buy anyway, as they are direct from the bodega!

With limited numbers and with different categories of rooms I’ll have to take reservations on a first come, first served basis – I’m sure you understand!

Whilst initial reservation will be by e-mail, or please call me on 629 388 159, I will also need to collect a deposit, as soon as possible.

Please Note:

1. Unfortunately the option of single occupancy will not be available for this Short Break.

2. Rooms can be large double beds or two single beds.

3. It may be possible for three to share a double room (an extra single bed would be provided) – there would be a supplement payable of 30€/per night for this.

4. Insurance is not included, you are recommended to make your own insurance arrangements.

Finally, for now at least – you may be interested to know that Katherine, joint owner of Casa Boquera, will be my guest on the Fine Wine & Gourmet Dine Programme, Total FM 91.8 & online, on Sunday 26th February, from 18:00 – 20:00 hrs, when we’ll be chatting about the project and tasting some wines! Any questions during the programme – please text me on 629 388 159.

So – over to you! Please contact me as soon as possible to reserve, stating your room category preference, and your phone numbers. If your room preference is already subscribed, I will add you to the list, subject to your willingness to change, in order to retain your place. I will then reply to advise and ask if you’re willing to change.

Thanks for your time – I can’t wait for this Short Break and I hope you can join me!
