The incomparable beauty of grandeur and simplicity in perfect harmony
Atrio Restaurant Hotel Relais & Châteaux
It is as if we were talking about a precious treasure. Caressed by historic buildings dating from the XVI Century, we find in the heart of old Caceres one of this spectacular World Heritage city’s most fascinating buildings, in its time home to kings, nobles and world famous explorers.
The fundament and essence of the Atrio team is the nurturing of a sense of well being in their clients. This is the feature that most aptly characterises the hotel’s owners.
Within the walls we find various open spaces that fit together with a delicate domestic simplicity. With the passage of time the eye learns to discern the play of changing light and its asymmetric reflections and transparencies, with different materials, textures and colours pointing to real or illusory perspectives, moulding the sense of comfort and drawing your gaze from the most intimate proximity to sweeping panoramas under a benign sky.
Just to live this is in itself an enormous pleasure, and to this one has still to add the exquisite cuisine of renowned chef Toño Perez. His passion is for the combination of local, traditional gastronomy of Extremadura with dishes from around the world. The magnificent wine cellars of the Atrio are also noteworthy. Here we find a most admirable combination of the world’s best known and respected wines accompanied by a selection from smaller vineyards, all personally chosen by the proprietors.
