The area around Potes and the Picos de Europa is absolutely beautiful, and this is a perfect place to stay, with a car, to explore. The walking is fantastic, and the owner offers a map and advice on beautiful walks in the area. Fuente De is a must on a clear day. The hotel is simple, with pleasant cold breakfast,... More

A beautiful, quiet rural posada in the middle of the Picos, with quick access to the Fuente De cable care, which is a very convenient benefit. Good breakfast, clean rooms, all with good views. We could not have a balcony room as there were none available , but it did not matter at all. Our room at the top had... More

Relaxing and welcoming, this beautiful Posada provides a great base from which to explore this stunningly green valley on the western fringe of the Picos de Europa. The hosts are friendly and chilled and you're well looked after on all fronts. Deserving of its great reviews. Very popular with walkers and hikers of all levels.

This is a beautiful home where you feel like a guest of the family. It has gorgeous rooms with luxurious touches, lovely lounges and a hearty breakfast. The garden is heavenly as are the views. The location is perfect for discovering the area either by car through the pretty villages, or on foot on one of the many signposted trails,... More

Stayed here 3 nights for a family trip and can warmly recommend it. This is a very nice and friendly family-run place set in the most beautiful location with mountains all around. Nice rooms with views. Very good home-made breakfast in the mornings. Helpful and friendly owners. Very child friendly place and close to many great sights, incl. the teleferico... More

This family-run guest house is located in a spectacular location, with astonishing views of the mountains from every window and balcony. The couple who manages the place are very friendly and helpful. It used to be their farm house. Breakfast is delicious, with home-grown vegetables and fruits and home-made pastries. There is a swimming pool and a large yard. Every... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. It's an amazing place with a very family friendly feel. It's close to most places by car and so was an ideal location for us. The owners were so friendly and made us feel so welcome! Not only is the location stunning but so is everything there! A place we will definitely return to.

This posada is a few Kilometres out of Potes on the road to Fuente De. We stopped by, as it was a fantastic location with views of mountains. We wanted a room with a view, however, the owner was not there, but were told, it was unlikely. There is another posada higher up the hill, however, I believe this one... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights here and spent the days walking around the mountains that surround this idyllic little village. The rooms all have balconies, are clean and spacious. The owners cannot be more helpful (limited English so bone up on your Spanish) and will give you ideas on walking, where to eat and what to see in... More

We had 4 nights here while exploring the Picos. The location is fantastic, at the foot of the mountains but still only a 5 minute drive into Potes. The Posada is beautifully presented, spotlessly clean, has a lovely relaxed atmosphere, and the views are stunning. Our room was at the back of the building and had a balcony with great... More
