You’re in the foot of a spectacular valley with the river Ebro sluicing past for otter spotting and peaceful dozing. Friendly Javier and his family welcome you to their home – an authentically restored 13th century millworkers’ home. Stargaze through sky windows in upstairs bedrooms, read by a crackling fire in the characterful sitting room, or lounge on the lawn under leafy trees.
Birds soar around you – head out on an expedition through the Rudrón Nature Reserve with Javier, good telescopes and binoculars. Follow the gorge for miles of beautiful scenery, traditional villages and Roman churches.
The food is a treat: wake up to fresh orange juice, fruit salad, local cheeses and Javier and Valvanera’s delicious take on toasted dishes – try bread topped with peanuts and baked in milk. The dinners are fresh, seasonal and memorable.
