Hugging the side of a valley, in the heart of the Picos de Europa, find a lovely 18th century Casona with glorious views across the peaks. Warm owners Elena and Javier welcome you and make an enormous effort to make their guests comfortable and at ease.
What is most striking as you enter the living area is the large terrace looking out over the valley – a wonderful spot to have breakfast or dinner, both made with delicious local produce. Each bedroom has its own terrace too. Breathe in the mountain air, listen to distant cowbells, leave your worries behind.
When it’s time to explore, you won’t want for adventures: walking routes through the mountains take you from small cider makers to cheese caves via ancient farms. Javier and Elena have a wealth of local knowledge and are happy to advise: secret swimming spots, stunning canyon treks and organised kayaking. Yoga retreats can be organised too.
