Known for its magnificent alpine surroundings and charming pedestrian town, Telluride is a tightly knit community perfect for a relaxing holiday at a private retreat. Solstice's Basque Retreat is just minutes outside of Telluride in a region called Aldasoro Ranch. Reminiscent of the hill towns of Northern Spain , this palace in the mountains is rugged and romantic, with a clear view of the San Juan Mountain Range from the several terraces and balconies.

Antique furnishings, a gourmet kitchen and special features like an authentic, cast iron, Jacuzzi tub and stone-walled dry sauna make The Basque Retreat an absolute pleasure to share with friends. The conveniences of a washer and dryer, a computer with Internet access and even a barbeque make this getaway vacation a home away from home.

There are black bears in the region so you should be careful in spring and in the fall seasons if you plan to do some hiking. Telluride has a lively summer festival and an average opera house and theatre.
