Nature lovers heaven in the Picos de Europa, find traditional apartments and casas with beautifully welcoming hosts and views that stun

Read guest comments

Over the Casano river, then up the winding road to a village perched high, surrounded by majestic peaks. A sharp turn… and there is Jascal, an intricate pattern of red roofs and chimneys against a Picos panorama, and in perfect keeping with the local style. Carlos and Barbra, hospitable, knowledgeable hosts, greet you at reception then show you around. Choose one of three apartments set back in the hillside, or one of two 'casas' in the three-storey house. You'll love the spacious open-plan living rooms with wood-burning stoves, the built-in wardrobes with locally made doors, the great big beds dressed in white linen and the decorative features; and the enchanted mossy forest landscape will have you spellbound. Wild cherries bloom in March, fungi burst forth in autumn, mountain streams gush, badgers and chamoix trot the paths, goat and cow bells tinkle in the distance. Follow the farm track up the valley, stop at a bar for a delicious 'racion' (and some of the local, creamy Cabrales), call Carlos to ferry you home. Or take the gentle circular walk to little Inguanzo (1.5km) for lunch. Picos heaven for nature lovers.

"We absolutely loved Jascal. We spent 7 nights in Casa Luna and it was just gorgeous. The accommodation is warm, spacious and super clean and comfortable. The location is heaven. The views are so beautiful, it's utterly peaceful and relaxing. Jascal is located in easy reach of some great walking too. Barbra and Carlos were great hosts, really friendly and helpful but also unobtrusive. We loved Jascal and highly recommend it. "

"We've stayed some days in Casa Luna. We've enjoyed it very much. A superb view on the mountains, a spacious and clean appartment with everything you need. On top of all that we felt more than welcome and got some great advice from Barbra where to go and eat. We would strongly advice Jascal for a relaxing holiday in a beautifull part of Spain!"

"A gloriously peaceful spot with amazing views across the Picos. The casa was perfect for our needs. Barbra and Carlos were so friendly and helpful with loads of information on where to go and what to see. We would go back again."

"An incredibly place to stay and definitely somewhere we intend to return to. We had a great few days and highly recommend staying here. The accommodation is rustic, yet warm, comfortable and practical, and the surroundings and views are very memorable. We highly recommend walking across the valley to the village across the other side to get a feel for the immediate area"

"A true gem. Really great accommodation, in a wonderful area with warm, hospitable and genuine hosts. The situation and accommodation provides a peaceful, relaxing and enjoyable backdrop for visits to the mountains and coast with lots of local input from Barbra and Carlos. Thank you both, we look forward to seeing you again next year!"

"We strongly recommend Jascal: for the high quality of the accommodation, the lovely local walks, and the ease of excursions, either to the beach or to the mountains. Carlos (Spanish) and Barbara (US) have done a great designing and building job, and offer a warm and well-informed welcome to the area. We especially liked the spectacular views from the large windows, the comfortable beds and the stylish furnishings; also the many local walks, through the flower meadows, over the hills, through the beech and chestnut woods, and along the streams. "

"A beautiful peaceful location in an ideal spot for exploring the Picos and sampling the local specialties. We visited in early June, when the weather was perfect for walking but even the best known walking routes were pleasantly quiet. The casa where we stayed was well equipped and very comfortable, we particularly enjoyed appreciating the view from our outside table, while sampling a great deal of tasty local cheese. Highly recommended. "

"Everything we hoped it would be: lovely peaceful location in the foothills of the Picos de Europa; an abundance of wild flowers and birdsong; stunning mountain scenery; many lovely and varied walks nearby and further afield. The five casas are each individually built and presented to a high standard, using traditional materials and designs: wooden beams, tiled floors, big windows facing the mountains, enormous comfortable beds, garden areas, elegant bathrooms and well-designed kitchen areas. Barbra and Carlos are lovely people, friendly and helpful but not intrusive. It is a friendly, unspoilt"

"A wonderful, tranquil place to stay. It's hard to believe that even the excellent photos on the website don't do the view justice, but it's simply stunning and yet feels very private. We stayed in Casa Luna which was beautifully equipped and designed and had one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. Barbra was a fantastic host throughout - from our first enquiry right through to letting us use the cottage for a few extra hours on the last day. Very kind, thoughtful and knowledgeable. We'd love to go back."
