Palacio de la Serna is a wonderful paradise. Eugenio Bermejo, the owner, is a well known Spanish interior designer and painter, who retired early from his interior design career to dedicate his time to panting, for which he bought this XVIIIth century former military garrison and transformed into a hotel, a very peculiar one... He lives on the premises and runs the hotel Palacio de la Serna practically from his studio which is in a way open to hotel guests. If you like to paint you only have to say so and Eugenio will let you use his studio at no extra charge, except for the cost of the materials. He even gives free counseling! Needless to say, Palacio de la Serna makes you feel the presence of this artist in every corner of the house. The rooms, decorated by him of course, are very different one from another, some you may love, some maybe not. He uses a lot of contrast, for example: very colorful walls, iron works, antique furniture, you name it he is got it, even a dining table sawn down the middle, one half used for the wash basin and the other, set against a wall in the living room of the suite, with the TV on it. Another emblem of Eugenio here is his cooking, he is in charge of the kitchen and going with his personality, he does not follow any recipes, he calls it the authors cooking, every time something different. As far as we tasted, it was excellent.
