Aire de Bardenas...stunning design hotel

6.15.2010

Last week, Elodie, Christophe and Lily spent the weekend in Aire de Bardenas, a fabulous 4**** design hotel with 22 rooms and four deluxe suites in Spain...
It just looked absolutely amazing....the perfect place to chill out for a few days...
And I'm laughing thinking that they probably needed it because this week, Thelma & Louise (aka my mum and my aunt Dany) are in Barcelona visiting them and apparently the two have been practising their Spanish over tinto vino these past few weeks so they will probably need another weekend away after the departure of the two tornados..







Designed by Emiliano Lopez and Mónica Rivera, Hotel Aire de Bardenas looks like a lunar colony. Named after the wind that rolls in over the Bardenas desert, the hotel is a cluster of eight pale boxes around a main hall. They sit a little eerily, like the relic from 2001: A Space Odyssey, in the middle of a wheat field between Bardenas Reales National Park and the town of Tudela."





In a totally different genre mais alors totally different...
Steve, Mila and I are off to Vintage Vacations on the Isle of Wright to sleep in a 1950s Airstream and I'm dead excited by it!!
