“Absolutely lovely”
Reviewed July 10, 2007

What an amazing time!

My husband and I wanted to go to a cold, not distant place. Being December we wanted to go to aplece where there was snow so that we could ski. After some reserach on the net, we found a ski station and immediately started browsing for some place to stay for a week.

Artesa is in a mountain small village called Candelario, 80 km of Salamanca. It is one idilic place that reminds the OLd Europe, up on a hill, with wonderful sights to the Mountain and tiny streets all with "batipuertas" (wooden doors in front of regular doors to prevent dogs from eating the meat when an animal was killed, many years ago).

Artesa is a family run business which works as an arts centre. Everything there is out of this world, the house itself resembles a small museum.
Great accomodation with stunning views, incredibly nice people working there, ready to give all information they can, food absolutely great.
Rooms with heating, balcony, sattelite TV, bathroom, everything decorated with handcrafts.

For those who want a piece of true Spain, surrounded by nature and tradition, go to ARTESA.
