Our stay at the beautiful La Pisa

I am sorry for being late in writing this review.

Apart from La Pisa being in the most beautiful location, the hosts John and Gwen are the most friendly and lovely people you could wish for as owners to complement the overall enjoyment of a holiday there. We arrived in pouring rain to find all the guests enjoying the hospitality of the hotel in the bar area, instantly we felt the friendly atmosphere that they were already enjoying. Nothing was too much trouble for John and Gwen, and Janet and I both liked them for the way they had this down to earth approach in being so helpful with a lovely sense of humour that came through.
Our room was very clean and comfortable with its verdant outlook over the valley and forest opposite the hotel, and well maintained. We would most definitely stay there again, and intend to do so as soon as we can, in fact when we left and John and Gwen came to see us off, we were quite sad to leave and on our onward journey to Portugal wished we had stayed at La Pisa for longer.
Potes the nearest town and regarded as the gateway to the Picos de Europa was close by and we eat there on just one occasion, even then we wished we had not bothered because the cuisine that John provided was so good and we missed the atmosphere of the dining room.
We found the Picos de Europa to be magnificent, and I will not list all the places to visit, simply because it is for you to go out and explore the area which has to be the most beautiful region of Spain with its craggy mountain peaks and scenery so wonderfully diverse. The villages of the Picos are fascinating to visit with many escaping any modernistic tendencies to build new properties that would spoil what is a very special vernacular, the styles of which remain true to the origins of the typical agricultural region it once was.

Finally we look forward to returning to stay with John and Gwen at the lovely La Pisa for a second time to enjoy the hospitality, and especially to taste more of John's cooking which is worthy of the praise given to many good chefs.

Superb - highly recommended

Our young family of five had a wonderful time at La Pisa with John and Gwen.

The food was absolutely delightful and very high in quality - some of the best food I've ever eaten. John (who does the cooking) was also very flexible to accomodate our children's various tastes which was very much appreciated by them.

John and Gwen themselves are lovely and excellent hosts. A significant plus point of the stay was the general chat with John and Gwen (and other guests and locals) in the bar. There is a very friendly vibe in general at La Pisa, with everyone talking with each other. They were also really good with our children.

The location is also beautiful - the scenery is magnificent (the views from both the windows in our bedroom were stunning) and the village is very picturesque and good to walk around, and safe for the children to roam around.

There was plenty to do in the area, with some beaches just about being a comfortable drive away, a lovely town called Potes nearby and plenty of caves and cable cars to entertain if you've had your fill of walking and soaking up the scenery. There is also no sign whatsoever of drunken brits on club 18 30 holidays with chronic sun burn.

I would recommend a stay at La Pisa and am very happy that we chose to go there and Cantabria in general.

Hi, thanks for a wonderful break in your lovely mountain hamlet. The weather was kind to us, the food and hospitality superb, back to the rotten UK weather! We will miss the flowers and spectacular views as well as the relaxing atmosphere, the gourmet food and the chat! This is a gem of a place, missing it already.

A great weekend break - just too short

Had a great weekend break - just too short. The guest-house was beautiful and the food excellent. Have already recommended it to friends and hope to be back ourselves some time. Pass on our thanks to John and Gwyneth - they were great hosts and guides. Visited Santillana del Mar en route back to airport and it was fantastic - needed a full day there really so must come again.

Comfortable accomodation with excellent service and first class cuisine. John and Gwen made us feel welcome and were not only excellent hosts but were prepared to take the time to provide in depth local information that helped to make our stay one to remember. John has a detailed knowledge of the area and provided much appreciated help in planning our walks.

Erholsamer Wanderurlaub

In einem freundlichen, familieren Umfeld, kann man hier einen schönen Wanderurlaub verbringen, (allerdings mit Auto). Man kann sich mit einem köstlichen, regionalen Abendessen verwöhnen lassen. Gwen und John bemühen sich sehr, dass man sich wohlfühlt, trotz wenig englischer Sprachkenntnisse, haben wir uns gut verstanden.
Das kleine Hotel ist sauber, gepflegt und sehr ruhig, wir würden gerne jederzeit wieder kommen.
