Quirky and very appealing little slice of paradise tucked halfway up the Paul valley. Perfectly placed for seriously energetic hikes up to the surrounding hilltops, gentle rambles or very lazy strolls down the road to Alfred's organic restaurant and grog shop. Belen and Jose are friendly, interesting, informative, easy going hosts and great cooks with a good sense of humour. The room was spacious, uncluttered and attractive with a brilliant hot shower ( a must after an all day walk) in a very stylish bathroom. We stayed for six days over christmas and really enjoyed our stay, the delicious food and their hospitality as well as the ever changing company of the guests from the other 2 rooms - very convivial and relaxed. We loved having the 2 dogs and cats around and a real treat was being able to take Luna for a walk with us up to one of the Picos. Is there anything we'd ask to be different ? Probably only having hot water available in the morning as well as in the evening but it's not a big deal. Biggest regret was not being able to stay longer.
