Lovely location, albeit remote so you must be prepared to do some careful driving to get anywhere as the Gorge roads are very tricky.The castle is fascinating and grounds lovely, the staff were young, efficient and friendly, and the manager charming. The rooms in the annexe were spacious, comfortable but there was no wi-fi access, which meant going to the main building to do anything. It would also have been nice if the little fridge was stocked with something - soft drinks and water would have been fine, we didn't expect fine wines. The food was excellent, but the menu with four main courses was unchanged, so after five days we were repeating our eating ! Most guests stayed a night or two; if you stay longer you need to think about where you go and what to do during the day, although the pool and jacuzzi do help to while awayvthe time. We enjoyed it but felt five nights was enough.

Once again had an amazing stay. Very beautiful room and amazing location. Very friendly staff and great food. Only the first evening we had some issues with the dinner service. We had to wait long for the drinks and the food. I suppose it is not easy now to work with the new covid rules. Otherwise had a great stay.

Royal Palace of Olite

The Palace of the Kings of Navarre of Olite was one of the seats of the Court of the Kingdom of Navarre, since the reign of Charles III 'the Noble' until its conquest by Castile (1512). The fortification is both castle and palace, although it was built more like a courtier building to fulfill a military function.

On an ancient Roman fortification was built during the reign of Sancho VII of Navarre (13th century) and extended by his successors Theobald I and Theobald II, which the latter was is installed in the palace in 1269 and there he signed the consent letter for the wedding of Blanche of Artois with his brother Henry I of Navarre, who in turn, Henry I since 1271 used the palace as a temporary residence. This ancient area is known as the Old Palace.

Then the palace was housing the Navarrese court from the 14th until 16th centuries, Since the annexation (integration) of the kingdom of Navarre for the Crown of Castile in 1512 began the decline of the castle and therefore its practically neglect and deterioration. At that time it was an official residence for the Viceroys of Navarre.

In 1813 Navarrese guerrilla fighter Espoz y Mina during the Napoleonic French Invasion burned the palace with the aim to French could not make forts in it, which almost brought in ruin. It is since 1937 when architects José and Javier Yarnoz Larrosa began the rehabilitation (except the non-damaged church) for the castle palace, giving it back its original appearance and see today. The restoration work was completed in 1967 and was paid by the Foral Government of Navarre.
