About this listing
The Black Grape is 3-story boutique town house in the centre of one of Spain's most important wine regions. If you like food, fine wine, medieval architecture, bulls chasing you on cobbled streets, mountain biking and small town fiestas where you will most likely be the only tourist - then you will surely love this place!
If you book our house for a vacation you will soon find yourself in a 220 sqm. rustic town house located in the village of Ollauri surrounded by some of the most important vine yards of Spain. We think the area is a hidden gem - chances are that you will be the only foreigner around.
The house holds 4 individual double bedrooms, a 40 sqm. rooftop terrasse and 35 sqm. "walk-in mini bar" in the shape of an antique fully stocked wine cellar. Also, we’ve got two well equipped kitchens, an outdoor fireplace and BBQ, broad band internet access, Playstation 3 consoles and digital flat panel televisions in all rooms.
We fully renovated the house in 2009 carefully maintaining all of the house’s original features including our spectacular “walk-in mini-bar” housing a collection of wines at unbeatable prices.
Being a bunch of Danes, we have decorated the interior of the house with contemporary Danish designer furniture ensuring a very high level of comfort. We're think you will appreciate it!

Preparations, cleaning and linen:
The house will be cleaned before and after you arrival, so no cleaning is required from you part. We also provide clean linen and duvets. A fixed fee for these services are charged (150 Euro)
The wine cellar:
When we began renovations on the house, we uncovered a magnificent vaulted cellar and immediately fell in love with it. Since then we have dedicated our time to hand-selecting a range of wines from some of our favourite bodegas in and around the village.
The way it works - Like an honesty bar, guests at the house are free to take what they like from the cellar and leave the appropriate sum. We are delighted to be able to offer Black Grape guests these top-quality wines at wholesale prices. A wine catalogue is available in the cellar to guide you through the wines, along with individual tasting notes.
