Welcome to San Benito, The House of my Grandparents
San Benito is the realization of a dream that two very special people had one day to create a place to welcome, and pass time with their relatives and friends. These two people are Anita and Jose Luis, our Grandparents.
Anita and Jose Luis, met in Riaza in the early fifties in a pilgrimage to the Hermitage of San Benito with their respective families. The casual encounter became a courtship, and then marriage. This marriage was the beginning of a long and fruitful life together until the passing away of both Anita and Jose Luis in 2015.
A lifetime around this emblematic Segovian town, Riaza, justified choosing the site.
For many years Riaza was the center of celebrations and important events of their lives: Silver Weddings, Birthdays, Golden Weddings, etc.
Now, as Anita and Jose Luis are gone, their children and grandchildren began the dream of continuing to maintain San Benito with all the flavour and spirit that the house was created for. The goal for us is share this house with all our guests who can also enjoy it and thus write happy lines in the stories of their own lives enjoying this special house, the landscape and, finally, all the opportunities that the house and its environment offer.
We invite you to live and discover our House, your House. We will try to do everything possible to make your stay a pleasant one.
It is undoubtedly an ideal place to shelter from the cold and snowy days of the rigorous winter in front of the large chimney, after having enjoyed all the charms that surround San Benito. In summer, with the hotter days, walks at dusk, relaxed sunsets on the terrace, will be the best way to experience this part of old Castile. In spring when life is reborn with strength the roads become infinite. Finally, with Autumn and the fall of the leaves and the first rains, the mountains of Riaza and all its surroundings are filled with colour.
San Benito, The House of our Grandparents, will allow you to experience a village such as Riaza, the picturesque villages and places that surround it, the various National Parks, the rich Cultural and Gastronomic Heritage of this land.
Based on the collaboration with companies of local and provincial presence we can offer you the possibility to organize the event you want: family celebrations, company meetings, etc.
You can also enjoy bike rides, or horse routes, ski days in La Pinilla ski station, wonderful excursions, stimulating mycological walks, etc.
We hope you enjoy San Benito intensely and find enough reasons to return to visit us very soon.
From San Benito, the House of our Grandparents, we offer you the warmest of Welcomes.
